Chesterfield had been due to play Northampton but it was one of four matches that fell victim to waterlogged pitches.

All Scunthorpe's goals came in the second half as David Syers (58) and a late brace from Sam Winnall (82, 84) earned them victory over Dale, who had Michael Rose sent off.

Burton also jumped ahead of Chesterfield despite being held to a goalless draw by Mansfield.

Ryan Leonard was Southend's hero as they climbed to fourth with a 2-1 victory over Portsmouth.

Sonny Bradley gave the visitors the lead on the half hour but Leonard levelled just before half-time and netted the winner two minutes into injury time.

Fleetwood moved back into the play-off places after ending a three-match losing run with a 3-1 win over Accrington.

Jon Parkin (6) and David Ball (58) put Fleetwood two up and, although Kayode Odejayi pulled one back in the 81st minute, Daniel Carr added a third for the hosts deep into injury time.

Torquay stay in the bottom two after a 2-0 defeat at Plymouth, Caolan Lavery (60) and Lewis Alessandra (85) scoring the goals.

Morecambe missed the chance to close the gap to the top seven, losing 1-0 to a 30th-minute goal from Ryan Jarvis for York.

Dagenham & Redbridge are now only one point behind the Shrimps after beating AFC Wimbledon by the same scoreline.

Abu Ogogo scored the only goal in the 10th minute and the Daggers held on despite losing Lawson D'Ath to a second yellow card with more than half an hour to go.

It was a miserable day for Hartlepool, who were two down inside 12 minutes at home to Bury.

Danny Mayor and Daniel Nardiello struck early and Richard Hinds wrapped up a 3-0 win in the 75th minute.

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
