Eliot Richards struck twice and Lee Brown once with Richard Logan scoring for the hosts, but with the score at 1-3 in the second half the decision was made to halt play.

Goals from Deon Burton and Myles Weston gave Gillingham a 2-1 win at Dagenham which puts the Gills top with three wins for three, along with Oxford United who won by the same score at home to Plymouth.

The day's most dramatic match saw four goals in a crazy final 12 minutes as a pedestrian 1-1 draw between Northampton and Southend was transformed into a 3-3 thriller.

AFC Wimbledon’s miseries continued after Phil Parkinson’s Bradford thrashed them 5-1 just days after the Dons were thumped 6-2 at Burton.

Burton were unable to take momentum into their second home game of the week, however, losing 1-0 to league new boys Fleetwood via Damien Johnson’s winner.

Exeter continued their quest to regain League One status with a 3-0 win at Accrington, while fellow relegated side Rochdale fell 4-2 at Torquay.

There were 3-1 wins on the road for Port Vale and York at Morecambe and Barnet respectively, while Cheltenham also won away with a 1-0 victory at Aldershot and Rotherham equalised in the second half to hold Chesterfield 1-1.
