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.

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
