League Two roundup: Torquay United, Dagenham & Redbridge, York City win away

Torquay United overcome a poor night's sleep to win 1-0 at Portsmouth, while Dagenham & Redbridge and York City also record impressive away victories in League Two.

Torquay United overcame a poor night's sleep to record a 1-0 win at Portsmouth in League Two on Saturday.

The Gulls had to depart their hotel at 5am because of flooding, but they looked fresh enough at Fratton Park, where Billy Bodin netted the winner on 27 minutes.

Dagenham & Redbridge and York City also registered impressive away victories.

Rhys Murphy's 63rd-minute strike was enough for the Daggers to overcome Rochdale, while Wes Fletcher netted a stoppage-time winner for York at promotion contenders Fleetwood Town.

Elsewhere, Scunthorpe United were held to a goalless draw at Hartlepool United.

Chesterfield capitalised on Scunthorpe's failure to win by extending their lead at the top of the table to three points by beating Bristol Rovers 3-1 at the B2Net Stadium.

Oxford United are now third after seeing off AFC Wimbledon 2-1 at the Kassam Stadium. David Connolly scored on his debut for the U's.

Fellow promotion hopefuls Burton Albion came from behind to draw 1-1 with Exeter City at the Pirelli Stadium, while Anton Forrester struck the only goal in Bury's narrow victory over Wycombe Wanderers.

Lewis Alessandra fired a last-minute equaliser as Plymouth Argyle and Mansfield Town drew 1-1, which was also the score at Whaddon Road where Cheltenham Town and Northampton Town could not be separated.

The match between Accrington Stanley and Morecambe at the Crown Ground was abandoned after 58 minutes, with the score still 0-0, due to standing water on the pitch.

Accrington had earlier been reduced to 10 men, with Alex Kenyon seeing red for a two-footed tackle on Peter Murphy.
