Gillingham maintained their five-point lead at the top of League Two after Adam Barrett secured a late 2-2 draw at Plymouth.

Earlier, Curtis Nelson put Plymouth ahead but Ben Strevens equalised after 38 minutes.

Second-placed Port Vale could not capitalise after drawing 0-0 at Southend and are now level on 32 points with Cheltenham, who edged out Burton 1-0 thanks to a late Chris Zebroski goal.

A Nahki Wells brace enabled Bradford to move up to fourth with a 2-0 win at rock-bottom Aldershot while big-spending Fleetwood were twice pegged back in a 2-2 draw at Exeter.

Dwight Gayle and Luke Howell both scored twice as Dagenham ran riot with Medy Elito also getting on the scoresheet.

Adebayo Akinfenwa scored his first Northampton hat-trick as the Cobblers came from behind to win 4-2 at Accrington.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
