Sports Mole rounds up Tuesday evening's action from League Two.

Port Vale have edged closer to promotion to League One by securing a point against Aldershot Town this evening.

The second-placed side took the lead through Jennison Myrie-Williams just before half time, but Paul McCallum leveled for the visitors as they fight for their survival at the other end of the table.

Despite taking a point, Aldershot remain bottom of the table, while Vale are seven points clear of fourth place with three games left to play.

A second-half brace from Jacques Maghoma ensured that Burton Albion climb back into the automatic promotion places.

The two goals were enough to give the home side a win over Wycombe Wanderers, who remain 15th in the league table.

Bradford City have moved into the playoff places following a comfortable win over Bristol Rovers this evening.

Nahki Wells put the League Cup finalists two goals up in just over 20 minutes, with Andrew Davies adding the third just before half time.

Tom Hitchcock pegged one back for the visitors, but Garry Thompson ended their hopes of a comeback by netting Bradford's fourth.

Bradford's rise up into playoff places comes at the expense of Exeter City, who were thrashed by Rotherham United at the New York Stadium.

Ben Pringle fired the hosts ahead in the opening minute of the game, before Craig Morgan, Michael O'Connor and Daniel Nardiello all added to the score.

Results in full: Port Vale 1-1 Aldershot, Burton 2-0 Wycombe, Bradford 4-1 Bristol Rovers, Rotherham 4-1 Exeter
