Oxford United remained top of the League Two table on Tuesday night despite being held to a 0-0 draw at home to Newport County.

Chesterfield, Fleetwood Town and Rochdale all missed the chance to replace Oxford at the top of the tree.

The Spireites were involved in a goalless draw with relegation battlers Northampton Town, while Fleetwood lost 2-0 at Accrington Stanley.

Rochdale endured a torrid evening, as defenders Oliver Lancashire and Jack O'Connell were both sent off during a 4-0 home defeat to Scunthorpe United.

Elsewhere, Exeter City's run of five consecutive defeats came to an end as Alan Gow netted an 81st-minute equaliser to earn a 1-1 draw at Wycombe Wanderers.

Southend United came from behind with 10 men to win 2-1 at Portsmouth in a match that was delayed due to an accident on the A3.

The Devon derby ended all square between Torquay United and Plymouth Argyle, as Reuben Reid's ninth-minute penalty cancelled out Elliot Benyon's opener.

Billy Kee scored his first goal since October as Burton Albion won 1-0 at home to Mansfield Town. Bury were victorious by the same scoreline against Hartlepool United at Gigg Lane.

AFC Wimbledon drew 1-1 with Dagenham & Redbridge at Kingsmeadow, while there were no goals in the games involving Cheltenham Town, Bristol Rovers, Morecambe and York City.
