League Two roundup: Top two drop points, Portsmouth score six in second half

Sports Mole rounds up all of Tuesday evening's action in League Two.

Plymouth Argyle remain top of League Two after Tuesday evening's action despite dropping points against Leyton Orient.

Jay Simpson gave the O's the lead but Curtis Nelson equalised in the 81st minute to rescue a point for Plymouth.

Second-placed Oxford United also dropped points due to a 1-1 draw at home to Newport County. Lenell John-Lewis gave Newport the lead but Pat Hoban scored with 18 minutes remaining.

Northampton took advantage of the top two dropping points by beating Crawley Town 2-1. Early goals from Joel Byrom and John-Joe O'Toole put Northampton in the driving seat before Simon Walton scored a consolation from the penalty spot in the second half.

Jackie McNamara has now lost his opening four matches in charge of York City after a 6-0 loss to Portsmouth. All six goals were scored in the second half, after Jonathan Greening was sent off, with Marc McNulty's hat-trick the highlight for Pompey.

Jamie Cureton's late strike has propelled Dagenham & Redbridge off the foot of the table as they beat London rivals AFC Wimbledon 1-0.

Yeovil Town are in danger of their third successive relegation and they were in a familiar position tonight, losing to Wycombe Wanderers after Luke O'Nien's 70th-minute goal consigned the Somerset club to the bottom of the league.

Stevenage earned a much-needed win at Bristol Rovers to move seven points clear of the drop zone. Ben Kennedy's opener was cancelled out by Matt Taylor but Chris Whelpdale netted on the hour mark to secure the points.

Carlisle United moved into the playoff places in style. After trailing 3-1 to Luton Town, three goals in the final 23 minutes secured them a 4-3 victory.

Elsewhere, Joel Grant and Lee Holmes scored during Exeter City's 2-0 win at Mansfield Town, while Notts County moved up to 14th after a 4-2 victory over Barnet.

Cambridge United completed the night of League Two action with a 4-2 win away at Morecambe.

Accrington Stanley's match against Hartlepool United was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
