Round up of last nights League Two action.
It was a busy and eventful night again at the bottom of League Two last night as Barnet made it seven points from three matches with a 2-1 win over promotion chasing Rochdale at Underhill. A late Yannick Bolasie goal in time added on gave the Bees their second home win in succession after Lee McEvilly had equalised after John O'Flynn had put Barnet ahead. The win took Barnet level on points with Accrington, whose home match with Port vale was postponed. Both clubs are on 30 points. Accrington remain 19th with a better goal difference. The Bees are now 7 points clear of the relegation zone and have a game in hand on Grimsby and Bournemouth and two games in hand on Chester.
Barnet moved three points ahead of Chester City who lost 2-0 at Wycombe who moved up to 2nd in the table. Matt Phillips and Jon-Paul Pittman scored the goals for the Chairboys against a Chester side without a win in 13 matches. Chester remain 21st with 27 points.
Bournemouth's 2-0 home win over Aldershot takes the Cherries out of the relegation zone after having suffered a 17 point deduction at the beginning of the season. Danny Hollands and Steve Fletcher got their two goals. Bournemouth are on 24 points.
Grimsby Town, who grabbed a late 3-3 draw at Underhill recently, dropped into the relegation zone after going down 1-0 at home to League two leaders, Brentford who entertain the Bees next Tuesday at Griffin Park. Charlie McDonald scored the only goal of the game. Their win keeps the other Bees 4 points clear at the top and they are now 9 points clear of 4th placed Bury who lost 2-1 at home to Chesterfield. Grimsby have now lost their last 5 matches and have not won in their last 9 matches. They are on 23 points, 1 point below Bournemouth.
Bottom of the table, Luton Town drew 0-0 at home to promotion chasing, Gillingham. The draw took the Hatters onto 10 points but they remain a daunting 14 points from safety. Luton still look favourites to finish bottom, while the form of both Grimsby and Chester makes one of them the most likeliest to accompany the Hatters into the Blue Square Premier.
Elsewhere in league two, Bradford City got their promotion bid back on track with a 1-0 home win over Macclesfield. Dean Furman got the Bantams' goal which saw them climb above Exeter, Gillingham and Shrewsbury into 5th place. Shrewsbury and Exeter drew 1-1, Grant Holt scoring for the Shrews and Marcus Stewart for Exeter. A Robin Hulbert goal gave Darlington the three points at home to Notts County, while Dagenham & Redbridge's poor form continued with a 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Lincoln City. Aaron Brown. Janos Kovacs and former Stevenage striker, Anthony Elding scored the goals for the Imps. The Daggers have taken just two points from their last five points and have slumped to 9th in the table, 5 points outside the play-off zone.
