Sky Bet League 2 leaders Chesterfield suffered a surprise 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Burton Albion and now lead the standings on goal difference alone.

Adam McGurk scored twice in a four-minute spell early in the first half and, despite shading the rest of the game, the league leaders could not find a response.

Rochdale and Exeter City have the exact same record as Chesterfield but have conceded one and two more goals, respectively.

Dale had to rely on a late double from Ian Henderson to secure a 2-1 win at Cheltenham Town.

Troy Brown's scruffy effort had put the hosts ahead but Henderson struck twice in the final eight minutes to keep Dale in amongst the leaders.

Exeter had a much easier time of it on the road as they ran out 4-0 winners at Scunthorpe United.

The home side were unbeaten in six league matches but a Liam Sercombe brace, as well as goals from Arron Davies and Sam Parkin, secured a straightforward victory for Paul Tisdale's side.

Morecambe missed the chance to go top and ended the day in sixth place after drawing 1-1 at home to AFC Wimbledon.

Kevin Ellison scored early on for Morecambe but they could not add to their lead and were made to pay as Michael Smith levelled with a header at the start of the second half.

York City had won back-to-back league games but their momentum was ended as they lost 3-0 at Newport County.

Chris Zebroski and Lee Minshull struck to put the hosts on course for a win and the game was wrapped up when Danny Crow scored a minute from time.

Hartlepool United played for over an hour with 10 men but were still able to pick up their fourth straight win after seeing off Plymouth Argyle 1-0.

Jack Compton was sent off after just 26 minutes but Luke James struck his sixth goal of the season 10 minutes after half-time to secure the points.

Accrington Stanley remain without a win in League 2 but the bottom side did manage to take a point off Oxford United following a 0-0 draw at the Crown Ground.

Fellow strugglers Northampton Town remain five points clear of Accrington after a 2-2 home draw with Dagenham and Redbridge.

Luke Norris' close-range effort put Northampton in front before the visitors turned the game on its head with quick-fire goals from Zavon Hines and Rhys Murphy.

But Aidy Boothroyd's side earned a share of the spoils when Ian Morris levelled just after the hour.

Max Kretzschmar scored the only goal as Wycombe Wanderers won 1-0 against 10-man Bristol Rovers.

David Clarkson saw red in the first half for Rovers with Kretzschmar's 82nd-minute effort proving to be the difference.

Elsewhere, Bondz N'Gala's fourth-minute header was enough for Portsmouth to beat Bury 1-0 while Krystian Pearce was sent off in Torquay United's goalless draw with Mansfield Town at Plainmoor.

Friday 18th October

Barry Corr bagged a brace to fire Southend United to a 2-0 win against Fleetwood Town at Roots Hall on Friday night.

The Irish striker had gone 12 games without a goal for the Shrimpers but he rediscovered his scoring touch to help fire Phil Brown's side to a third successive league win.

Corr's first goal came in the 21st minute when Kevan Hurst's brilliant right-wing cross picked him out at the far post to bundle the ball home.

Fleetwood had been on top up until the Shrimpers' goal with striker David Bell having two low shots saved by Daniel Bentley.

The Southend goalkeeper then also did well to parry out a well-struck shot from Antoni Sarcevic.

But the Shrimpers made sure of their win in the 81st minute, with Corr on target from the penalty spot.

The spot-kick was given after Will Atkinson was brought down by Liam Hogan and Corr slammed his 12-yard shot high in to the left hand side of the net.
