League Two roundup: Bury halt Shrewsbury Town promotion party

Sports Mole rounds up Tuesday's League Two action as Bury halt Shrewsbury Town's automatic promotion party, beating them 1-0 at home.

Substitute Marlon Harewood scored a vital equaliser for Hartlepool United in the last 10 minutes of their match with Accrington Stanley, with the point keeping the North-East side just out of the relegation places.

Phil Brown's Southend United comfortably beat Newport County 2-0, after goals from Cian Bolger and Stephen McLaughlin earned the playoff side all three points.

Ten-man Luton Town, who saw Paul Benson receive a first-half red card for violent conduct, managed to hold on for a point away at Dagenham & Redbridge, as the game finished in a stalemate.

Tom Pett's third-minute strike against Portsmouth saw Stevenage boost their chances of finishing in the playoff places, as they ran out 1-0 winners.

AFC Wimbledon held Plymouth Argyle to a 1-1 draw, as Ade Azeez cancelled out Anthony O'Connor's opener in the second half.

Alex MacDonald's 91st-minute equaliser rescues a point for Oxford United, after Ivan Toney broke the deadlock in the first 45 minutes for Northampton Town.
