League Two roundup: Portsmouth go top, Newport County remain bottom

Sports Mole rounds up all the action from League Two, as Portsmouth move to the top of the table, and Newport County get their first win of the season.

Portsmouth have moved to the top of the League Two table after a 2-1 win away at Bristol Rovers this afternoon.

Goals from Gareth Evans and Jayden Stockley, either side of Jermaine Easter's strike for the hosts, were enough to seal victory for Paul Cook's early pacesetters.

Wycombe Wanderers also climbed up the table to second place, as second-half goals from Joe Jacobsen and Garry Thompson gave the Chairboys a 2-0 win at Exeter City.

Pompey and Wycombe overtook Leyton Orient, who dropped to third place in League One after a 1-1 draw at Northampton Town.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin looked to have scored the winner for Northampton in the 93rd minute of the game, but Dean Cox rescued a point for the visitors in the 97th.

Plymouth Argyle also dropped down the table to fourth place this afternoon, as Derek Adams' side played out a goalless draw at Mansfield Town.

A 3-0 win away at Crawley Town saw Accrington Stanley climb up to fifth place, thanks to goals from Josh Windass, Matt Crooks and Billy Kee, while a goalless draw with Morecambe saw Oxford United drop to sixth place.

Cambridge United snatched a late victory over Stevenage with a goal from Harrison Dunk in the 97th minute, while Notts County secured a second win in two matches as an early Izale McLeod goal gave them a 1-0 win against York City.

At the bottom of the table, Newport County won their first match of the season, as a Tyler Blackwood strike secured a 1-0 win at Carlisle United.

Barnet produced an impressive performance to defeat lowly Dagenham & Redbridge 3-1, as Michael Gash fired two either side of an Andy Yiadom goal to move the Bees up to 18th place.

A Jack Marriott double gave Luton Town a 2-0 win over AFC Wimbledon, while Yeovil Town dropped to 21st in the league after a 2-1 home defeat by Hartlepool United, after Brad Walker scored an 83rd minute winner for the visitors.
