Yeovil closed the gap on league leaders S#horpe after coming from 2-0 down to beat Cambridge 5-3.

Richard Hodgson and Amadou Konte had fired the Us ahead but prolific Glovers striker Phil Jevons inspired a magnificent comeback, scoring the first of two penalties after 55 minutes. Darren Way levelled a minute later and Lee Johnson put Yeovil ahead after 67 minutes. Another Jevons penalty made it 4-2 and after Jermaine Easter scored a third for United, Andrejs Stolcers put the game beyond the home side.

S#horpe dropped two points at home after a stalemate against Notts County. Steve Torpey's sending off for the Iron the only incident of note.

Leyton Orient completed a remarkable turn-around to salvage a point against relegation strugglers Rushden, drawing 2-2. Alex Hay (28) and Craig Dove (63) put Diamonds 2-0 up, only for Efe Echanomi and Daniel Chillingworth to score after 88 minutes and in injury time respectively to rescue a dramatic draw.

Bottom-placed Kidderminster beat fellow strugglers Oxford 2-0 to the delight of their travelling supporters, Blair Sturrock and Simon Russell keeping their cool when it counted.

Northampton's steady return to form continued with a 2-0 win at home to 10-man Bury, David Rowson and Josh Low finding the net either side of half-time.

Macclesfield kept up their bid for a play-off place, edging out Wycombe 2-1. Danny Whitaker opened the scoring six minutes in and Alan Navarro waited until second-half injury time to double the lead, before Roger Johnson's consolation effort.

Former Everton striker Michael Branch was on hand to earn Chester a point at Rochdale. Kevin Ellison had put the Bluebirds ahead at Spotland after six minutes but two goals in quick succession put Dale in front, Leo Bertos and Taiwo Atieno both finding their scoring boots. But Branch was on hand seven minutes before the end to equalise.

Struggling Shrewsbury recorded a 4-0 walkover at home to Darlington to boost their hopes of avoiding the drop. Sam Aiston and Jamie Tolley scored in the first half, the latter managing a brace, before David Edwards completed the rout in added time.

Paul Warne scored the only goal of the game with 10 minutes left to help Mansfield to a much-needed 1-0 win at Southend.

Boston were steamrollered by Swansea at the Vetch with goals by Lee Trundle, Adrian Forbes and Marc Goodfellow rendering Jason Lee's 86th-minute goal irrelevant.
