League Two roundup: Northampton Town victorious in seven-goal thriller to go top

Sports Mole rounds up Saturday's League Two action as Northampton Town go top after they were victorious in a seven-goal thriller over Luton Town.

Northampton Town came out of a seven-goal thriller victorious over Luton Town, who originally took the lead before conceding three first-half goals.

John-Joe O'Toole, Lawson D'Ath and Marc Richards's goals wiped out Paul Benson's opener for the Hatters, who managed to bring the game back to 3-3 midway through the second half.

However, Ricky Holmes scored the winner 10 seconds after coming on as a substitute to win the game for the Cobblers, putting them top of League Two.

Portsmouth comfortably beat Hartlepool United 4-0, as Caolan Lavery, Adam Jackson and Gareth Evans all got their names on the scoresheet.

Liam Noble scored a 96th-minute winner for Notts County, as seven goals were scored in their game against Newport County.

Oxford United were unable to keep their place atop of League Two, as they could only manage a 1-1 draw against Carlisle United.

Plymouth Argyle slip to third after conceding a late Luke Berry winner, as Cambridge United won 2-1.

Francois Zoko's late, quick-fire brace cancelled out Aaron McLean's first-half double, as Yeovil Town came from two goals down to draw with Barnet.

Matt Taylor's 91st-minute winner spared Bristol Rovers' blushes as they beat York City, condemning them to their ninth defeat on the bounce.

Rhys Murphy's double and Matt Harold's strike were enough to win Crawley Town all three points at home to Dagenham & Redbridge, despite a late surge from the away side after Jamie Cureton's late goal.

Jamille Matt scored his first Stevenage goal in their 2-1 away victory over AFC Wimbledon.

Reggie Lambe cancelled out Jay Simpson's 12th-minute opener, as Mansfield Town and Leyton Orient shared the points.

Accrington Stanley's home fixture with Wycombe Wanderers was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, whereas Morecambe's game with Exeter City was cancelled after failing a pitch inspection.
