Shrewsbury came from 2-0 down to beat midlands rivals Kidderminster 4-2 in a Coca-Cola League Two relegation battle.

The win moved the Shrews two places up the table to 19th and left Harriers further adrift of safety after what proved a crushing collapse. The visitors got off to a perfect start at Gay Meadow, Chris Beardsley and Blair Sturrock scoring after 10 and 27 minutes respectively. But Darren Moss scored two in seven minutes to level the match and Kelvin Langmead completed the spectacular turnaround in first-half added time after Moss turned provider. Striker Luke Rodgers added a fourth to rub salt in Kidderminster's wounds in the second half.

At the other end of the table a 2-0 away win against struggling Chester ensured leaders Yeovil maintained their stronghold at the top while their hosts dropped a further two places to 21st. Arron Davies' 12th-minute opener put Chester on the back-foot and Phil Jevons made it 2-0 after 31 minutes, scoring from the spot after he had been fouled by Richard Hope in the penalty area.

Second-placed S#horpe had Andrew Keogh to thank as his 68th-minute goal earned them a narrow 1-0 win at home to Leyton Orient.

Macclesfield moved level on points with third-placed Swansea as the Silkmen romped to a 3-0 home victory against Rochdale. Matthew Tipton scored two early goals before sealing his hat-trick with a third in stoppage time.

Swansea, meanwhile, only managed a goalless draw at home to struggling Grimsby.

Notts County's Julian Baudet's 53rd-minute penalty provided a quick response against Rushden after the visitors had taken a second-half lead in the division's other relegation tussle. Billy Sharp had put the Diamonds in front six minutes after the break but after Kevin Wilson's foul resulted in a penalty, Baudet kept his composure from the spot to level two minutes later.

Southend came from a goal behind to win 2-1 at fellow play-off hopefuls Northampton. The seventh-placed Cobblers took the lead against the Shrimpers, who sit one place higher, when Martin Smith found the breakthrough after seven minutes. The visiting supporters were made to wait for a real response, though, but it came when the prolific Adam Barrett brought his side level with 13 minutes left before hitting the winner in injury time.

Lincoln remain fifth after a 2-1 win against rock-bottom Cambridge. Simon Yeo broke the deadlock after 17 minutes and strike partner Gary Taylor-Fletcher doubled the lead less than 10 minutes later. Daniel Webb gave the visitors a fighting chance early in the second half but they were unable to build on his goal.

A last-gasp Tommy Mooney goal handed Oxford a priceless 1-0 win at Cheltenham.

Veteran Steve Claridge scored for Wycombe as they drew 1-1 at home to Darlington. Another old-timer, Clyde Wijnhard, had given the Quakers the lead after 34 minutes but well-travelled Claridge scored his second goal for the Chairboys two minutes later.

Bristol Rovers and Boston shared the spoils after Junior Agogo cancelled out Andy Kirk's second half strike, while Adam Murray and Adam Rundle scored either side of the break as Mansfield beat Bury at Gigg Lane.
