Swansea slipped to third in Coca-Cola League Two as S#horpe and Leyton Orient both won, while their game at home to Darlington was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

S#horpe are the new leaders, with a two point advantage after 1-0 win at home to Yeovil thanks to Andy Butler's strike 12 minutes from time.

Lee Steele hit a hat-trick for Leyton Orient as they ground out a 4-3 win away at Lincoln, coming from behind three times.

Gareth McAuley put the home side ahead just three minutes into the game and after Steele levelled after 11 minutes, Simon Yeo quickly restored the advantage.

Jabo Ibehre equalised for Orient after 37 minutes and after McAuley got his second in the second half to put Orient behind yet again, Steele scored twice in the last 12 minutes to seal victory for Martin Ling's charges.

Managerless Shrewsbury lifted themselves from the bottom with a point against Southend at Gay Meadow.

After Jimmy Quinn's departure last week, Kevin Street put the Shrews ahead after 14 minutes.

However, Wayne Gray levelled for the Shrimpers shortly before the hour mark to secure a 1-1 draw.

Chester eased their relegation concerns with a 2-1 victory at home to Grimsby, thanks to a quick double by Michael Branch.

The former Everton striker found the net after 39 and 42 minutes to give Chester a 2-0 lead, and Jon Daly's goal was not enough to salvage anything from the game for the Mariners.

Cambridge remain in the relegation zone after slipping to a 2-1 loss at Cheltenham despite taking an early lead.

Adam Tann scored two minutes into the game but former Wolves youngster Ashley Vincent brought Cheltenham level after 28 minutes.

And substitute Damian Spencer pounced in injury time to hand all three points to John Ward's men.

Graeme Rix's position as Oxford manager looks increasingly endangered after a narrow defeat at the hands of Macclesfield.

Oxford lost 1-0 at the Moss Rose after Mike Sheron found a breakthrough five minutes into the second half.

Northampton romped to a 5-1 win at home to Rochdale as former Cobbler Daryl Burgess endured a nightmare return to Sixfields.

Burgess put the ball into his own net nine minutes into the game to put Northampton ahead, before fouling Martin Smith in the box to concede a penalty - and receive a red card.

Smith converted the penalty to put the home side 2-0 up after 21 minutes, and got on the scoresheet again seven minutes later.

Rochdale goalkeeper Neil Edwards made his own day much worse by registering an own goal of his own after 63 minutes. Gareth Griffiths got a consolation to make it 4-1 before Josh Lowe scored in injury time to make it 5-1 to move his side up the table from 12th to sixth.

Notts County managed a vital win at home to Boston winning 2-1 at Meadow Lane to boost themselves up the table to 19th.

Gavin Gordon broke the deadlock after 17 minutes and Chris Palmer doubled the lead after 51 minutes.

Paul Ellender pulled one back three minutes later but the Magpies held on for the win.

Ian Atkins' Bristol Rovers beat struggling Kidderminster 2-0 thanks to a brace by Junior Agogo either side of half time to send Harriers back to the bottom of the table.

Rushden, grabbed a 1- draw at Bury.

Alex Hay got the opening goal shortly before the hour but Dwayne Mattis replied to earn the Shakers a point.

Wycombe were forced to come from behind to earn a point at home to Mansfield.

Derek Asamoah put the Stags in front early in the second half but Adam Birchall found an equaliser on the hour mark to make it honours even.
