thumbnail Hello,

The league leaders remain a point ahead of Chesterfield while bottom side Torquay beat Southend and new Portsmouth manager Richie Barker saw his side lose

Dave Kitson's late goal ensured Oxford United stayed top of League Two as they beat Dagenham and Redbridge 2-1 on Saturday.

James Constable put Chris Wilder's side in front with his seventh league goal of the season, but Rhys Murphy looked to have secured a point for the visitors.

Striker Kitson had the final say, though, ensuring Oxford were not held to a third consecutive league draw and remain a point better off than second-placed Chesterfield.

Paul Cook's Chesterfield were 2-0 winners over Plymouth Argyle courtesy of a Matty Brown header and a Marc Richards penalty.

Brown was later sent off and Reuben Reid failed to score the resulting spot-kick as Chesterfield secured their first win in three league games.

Bottom-of-the-table Torquay ended Southend United's run of seven games without defeat thanks to John Marquis' second-half strike.

Fleetwood Town replace Phil Brown's side in third spot after Mark Roberts scored a late goal to clinch a 2-1 win at Lancashire rivals Rochdale.

There was no winning start for new Portsmouth manager Richie Barker as Newport County won 2-0 at Fratton Park courtesy of two goals in the space of three minutes from Adam Chapman and Michael Flynn.

Leon Johnson's stoppage-time strike ensured Wycombe Wanderers held high-flying Scunthorpe United to a 1-1 draw at Adams Park.

Burton Albion were unable to stretch their winning run to four League Two games ater being held to a 1-1 draw by York City, with Burton striker Billy Kee sparing Shane Cansdell-Sherriff's blushes after the defender had scored an own-goal.

Torquay's win ensured they are now level on points with Northampton Town, who drew 1-1 at fellow strugglers Bury.

Bristol Rovers are hovering just a point above the relegation zone after a 2-1 defeat Morecambe.

Accrington Stanley were 3-0 down at home to Exeter City after only 24 minutes before making a fist of it to go down 3-2.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Hartlepool came back from two down to draw 2-2 at Cheltenham Town and AFC Wimbledon drew 0-0 at home to Mansfield.
