Yeovil and S#horpe still occupy the top-two places in Coca-Cola League Two despite both suffering defeats on Saturday.

The Glovers are still five points clear after a late Andy Parkinson goal secured a 2-1 win for Grimsby. Arron Davies had put Yeovil in front but Michael Reddy equalised, setting the stage for Parkinson's winner three minutes from time.

Earlier Swansea beat S#horpe 2-1 at the Vetch Field, inspired by talisman Lee Trundle. Trundle's header put the Swans in front after 25 minutes but Andy Butler took the Iron level soon after. In the second half, though, Trundle converted a penalty after Stevland Angus had fouled Lee Thorpe in the box.

Jon Parkin's brace helped Macclesfield close the gap on the top two as they ran out 2-1 winners at home to Bristol Rovers, after Steve Elliott levelled briefly for the Pirates.

Rock-bottom Cambridge took another step towards survival, beating a poor Oxford side 2-1 at home thanks to an injury-time winner. John Turner cancelled out Steve Basham's opener before Shane Tudor found himself in the right place at the right time to send the home fans delirious with joy.

Resurgent Shrewsbury hammered fellow strugglers Chester 5-0 at Gay Meadow as their surge away from the relegation zone continues. Jamie Tolley and Luke Rodgers scored in the first half and the assault was continued after the break with Jake Sedgemore, Ryan Lowe and Kelvin Langmead completing the rout.

Southend maintained their play-off push with a narrow win at home to Bury, Freddy Eastwood finding a way past Andy Marriott before the break.

Lee Steele proved the match-winner for Leyton Orient as they beat Darlington 1-0 at home.

Martin Smith notched in the second half as Northampton left Boston with all three points, winning 1-0, while a single goal also decided Cheltenham's fixture at home to Lincoln, with Steve Guinan scoring after the hour mark to win it for the hosts.

Rochdale and Kidderminster drew 1-1 at Spotland. Harriers took the lead through Chris Beardsley but Richard Lambert soon equalised, but neither side had the cutting edge to win the game.

Notts County did their fight for survival no harm with a 2-1 win away to Wycombe. Kevin Wilson put the Magpies 1-0 up after 13 minutes. Ian Stonebridge equalised for John Gorman's side a minute later, only for Stefan Oakes to pop up with the winner with 20 minutes left to play.

Rushden had to settle for a point at home to Mansfield.
