A review of Saturday's action in Sky Bet League 2.

Ritchie Humphreys' first goal of the season was enough to maintain Chesterfield's four-point lead at the top of Sky Bet League 2 with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Oxford.

Veteran Humphreys finished off a pass from Eoin Doyle on the half-hour to clinch victory in a clash between the two sides who started the day first and second in the table.

The Us fought hard for an equaliser but their hopes were hit by the 67th minute dismissal of Andrew Whing for a foul on Doyle.

Fleetwood took advantage to move up to second place as Jamille Matt scored the only goal of the game in the 67th minute to earn a 1-0 win over Portsmouth at Fratton Park.

AFC Wimbledon's fine start continued with a 3-1 win over 10-man Burton, who had shrugged off the early dismissal of Marcus Holness to grab a 29th minute lead through Adam McGurk.

The home side hit back after the break with Harry Pell equalising in the 55th minute and further goals from Jack Midson and Andy Frampton sealing victory.

Improving Mansfield piled more pressure on Northampton boss Aidy Boothroyd by breezing to a 3-0 win at the One Call Stadium.

Ben Hutchinson's free-kick opened the scoring on 11 minutes and Sam Clucas added a second before a 65th minute own goal from Mathias Kuou-Doumbe sealed the Cobblers' fate.

But Accrington Stanley remain the only team in the division without a win after they fell to a 2-1 home loss against Rochdale.

Matthew Lund and Scott Hogan put the visitors well in command inside the first 13 minutes, and despite Kayode Odejayi reducing the deficit and the visitors having George Donnelly sent off three minutes into the second half, the hosts could not fashion an equaliser.

Hartlepool's steady improvement continued but they were denied victory at Bristol Rovers by a last-gasp equaliser from John-Joe O'Toole.

Matt Harrold gave Rovers a 35th minute lead but two goals from Luke James late in the first half put the visitors in front before O'Toole fired home in the 89th minute to seal a 2-2 draw.

Exeter stumbled to a surprise 2-0 defeat at home to Newport, whose goals came from Conor Washington in the 23rd minute and a 70th minute effort from Harry Worley.

Etienne Esajas scored the only goal of the game in the 62nd minute as Scunthorpe beat Plymouth 1-0 at Glanford Park, while Dean Morgan's 70th minute equaliser grabbed a 1-1 draw for Wycombe at home to York, who had opened the scoring six minutes earlier through David McGurk.

Callum Ball scored twice as Torquay got the better of a six-goal thriller with Cheltenham at Plainmoor.

Ball twice gave the Gulls the lead only to see Byron Harrison and Karl Hawley claw the visitors back level, but Terry Gornell restored Torquay's lead for the third time in the 65th minute and Jordan Chapell completed a 4-2 win late on.

Rhys Murphy earned a last minute point for Dagenham and Redbridge in a 2-2 draw at Morecambe.

Abu Ogogo gave the Daggers the lead but goals from Padraig Amond and Mark Hughes looked to have won it for the home side until Murphy popped up with seconds to spare.

There was an equally dramatic finish at Gigg Lane where Ben Coker looked to have earned Southend the three points until Anton Forrester's 90th minute header secured a 1-1 draw for Bury.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
