The Welsh club had Robbie Willmott sent off inside four minutes as he handled a goalbound Steve Schumacher shot, with the Fleetwood man netting from the resulting spot-kick.

He then added two more, with his hat-trick strike again coming from the spot.

Newport had a penalty of their own which Chris Zebroksi scored to make it 3-1, but David Ball had the final say for the home side.

Oxford dropped to second as they were beaten 1-0 at home by struggling Bristol Rovers as John-Joe O'Toole scored the only goal from the penalty spot.

Chesterfield climbed to third but missed out on a first win in seven games as they drew 1-1 at home to Scunthorpe.

The Spireites had looked on course for three points thanks to Marc Richards' strike, but Luke Waterfall headed in an equaliser two minutes from time.

Peter Murphy's stoppage-time strike earned Accrington a 1-1 draw against Wycombe to move off the bottom of the table.

Stanley had trailed to Antony Stewart's effort until Murphy struck late on.

That meant Northampton dropped to the foot of the standings as they were condemned to a 1-0 defeat at Plymouth by Lewis Alessandra's late winner.

Portsmouth held off a late Exeter fightback to claim a 3-2 win at Fratton Park.

Pompey had led 3-0 thanks to Ricky Holmes and a Ryan Bird double, before Danny Coles and John O'Flynn pulled goals back, but it was not enough for the Grecians.

Rochdale dropped out of the top three as they were beaten 2-1 by AFC Wimbledon at Spotland.

The hosts had led through Jamie Allan before Sammy Moore levelled.

The game was held up for 25 minutes as the floodlights went out after one was struck by lightning, with Andy Frampton firing home the winner after play resumed.

Ryan Williams gave Morecambe a 1-0 win at Burton, who had Shane Cansdell-Sherriff sent off in added time.

Torquay ended a run of six games without a win with a 3-1 victory at Bury. Aaron Downes put the visitors ahead only for Nathan Cameron to restore parity for the Shakers.

But Paul McCallum's brace proved decisive.

York twice came from behind to earn a 2-2 draw at Cheltenham.

Byron Harrison and Matt Richards netted for the hosts, but Ryan Bowman struck back with a brace for the visitors.

Elsewhere, Andy Monkhouse's header gave Hartlepool a 2-1 victory over Dagenham.

James Poole tapped in the opener for Pools but Zavon Hines levelled matters, only for Monkhouse to seal all three points for the hosts.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
