Jermaine McGlashan celebrates his goal for Cheltenham

Oxford missed the chance to go top of Sky Bet League 2 after they were held to a goalless draw at York.

The result leaves the Us one point behind leaders Chesterfield, who beat Exeter 2-0 on Friday.

Scunthorpe moved into third thanks to a 2-0 home victory over Morecambe, with Deon Burton scoring both goals in the first half.

Fourth-placed Fleetwood and fifth-placed Burton, meanwhile, both dropped points.

Fleetwood were defeated 2-0 at home by Cheltenham after Troy Brown headed the opening goal from close range in the first minute, with Jermaine McGlashan scoring their second in stoppage time.

Burton drew 1-1 away at Hartlepool after Phil Edwards' 18th-minute goal was cancelled out by Bradley Walker midway through the second half.

Two stoppage time goals saw Accrington Stanley claim a dramatic 3-2 win over Mansfield.

Kal Naismith and James Gray both scored in added on time to cancel out a John McCombe double for the home side, after Naismith had set his side on the road to the win with his first score in the 48th minute.

Meanwhile, Wycombe thrashed rock bottom Northampton 4-1.

Jo Kuffour opened the scoring within the first 60 seconds, with Kortney Hause's header giving them a 2-0 lead at the break.

Izale McLeod hit back for the Cobblers early in the second half before two goals in five minutes late in the game for Stuart Lewis and Dean Morgan ensured a comfortable victory which cost Cobblers manager Aidy Boothroyd his job.

Elsewhere, Caolan Lavery opened the scoring for Plymouth as they hosted Bury, with Chris Sedgwick's equaliser not enough to secure a point for the visitors, as Reuben Reid found a 78th-minute winner.

In the other games, Aaron Downes' 50th-minute header saw Torquay claim a 1-0 away win over Dagenham and Redbridge, while scores from Ollie Clarke and David Clarkson saw Bristol Rovers triumph 2-0 over Portsmouth.

Newport's match against Wimbledon was postponed.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
