Saturday's League One promotion clash between Sheffield United and Brentford has been postponed due to snow, a long with a number of other Football League fixtures.

Heavy snowfall across the country has hit the Football League schedule badly, with the match between Shrewsbury and Oldham Athletic also affected.

In League Two, Port Vale's home meeting with Aldershot was also wiped out, with groups of fans unable to clear the pitch as snow continued to fall.

Vale acknowledged the postponement on their website.

Chesterfield and Plymouth will also have to rearrange their fixture. So too will the games between Chesterfield and Plymouth, Burton Albion and Wycombe, Rotherham and Exeter and Rochdale and Southend.

with a 1-0 win at Chesterfield.

five minutes into the second half at the Proact Stadium, extending the

Michael Symes, Marcus Holness,
Jacques Maghoma and Lee Bell struck for Albion before Guillem Bauza and
Scot Bennett restored some respectability for the Grecians.

Second-placed Port Vale were also victorious, winning 1-0 at Torquay courtesy of a Calvin Andrew strike.

Northampton moved up two places to fourth with a 1-0 win over Plymouth, who dropped to the bottom.

Clive Platt scored the Cobblers' winner after 72 minutes.

AFC Wimbledon took advantage of the Pilgrims' loss, and the failures of Accrington Stanley and Barnet to win, to climb off the bottom and out of the relegation places.

Kevin Sainte-Luce scored the only goal 10 minutes from time as Wimbledon won 1-0 at Dagenham and Redbridge.

Accrington, however, still claimed a creditable 2-2 draw against play-off contenders Cheltenham at home.

Cheltenham twice led through Marlon Pack, the first from the penalty spot, but former England international James Beattie responded to both goals for Stanley.

Barnet played out a goalless draw with Rochdale while another side in trouble, Aldershot, won 2-0 at home to a Fleetwood side who ended the game with nine men.

Danny Hylton struck twice for Aldershot before the dismissals of Jamie McGuire and Alan Goodall.

Craig Reid also missed a penalty for the hosts.

Goals from Barry Corr and Britt Assombalonga saw Southend come from behind to win 2-1 at Wycombe, who had led early through Dean Morgan.

Oxford's clash with York ended 0-0 while Morecambe and Bristol Rovers drew 1-1. Rovers' Eliot Richards cancelled out a second-minute goal from Jack Redshaw.

Luis Boa Morte tasted defeat on his Chesterfield debut as the Spireites were beaten 2-1 by Dagenham at the Proact Stadium.

The former Arsenal, Fulham and West Ham forward, who joined the club on Wednesday, made an impressive start by setting up an early chance for Neal Trotman.

But Boa Morte was upstaged by Sam Williams, who scored twice to give struggling Dagenham a much-needed victory.

Edgar Davids discovered just how big a challenge he faces at Barnet as his first match in charge at Underhill ended in a 4-1 home defeat to Plymouth.

The former Holland midfielder is the new joint head coach of the Football League's bottom club, his first managerial position.

But there was no fairytale start for the former Champions League and three-time Serie A winner.

His new side fell behind after just two minutes as Rhys Griffiths converted a penalty and Maxime Blanchard made it two after 11 minutes.

David Stephens pulled one back five minutes later, but Argyle ran away with it in the second half as further goals from Paris Cowan-Hall (62) and Luke Young (90) earned them a convincing win.

Defeat left Barnet seven points from safety and five behind second-bottom Aldershot, who were thumped 4-0 at leaders Gillingham.

Charlie Allen opened the scoring after 11 minutes and Danny Kedwell added another from the spot (27).

Myles Weston made it 3-0 by half-time and Chris Whelpdale completed the rout midway through the second half.

Cheltenham knocked Fleetwood out of the automatic promotion places by moving up to third with a 2-1 win at AFC Wimbledon.

Marlon Pack put the visitors in front after 25 minutes and Kaid Mohamed doubled the lead early in the second half.

Byron Harrison pulled one back in the 90th minute, but it was too little too late.

Fleetwood dropped to fourth as they were beaten 1-0 at home by struggling Wycombe. Bruno Andrade scored the only goal of the game in the ninth minute.

The three other sides in the play-off places, Burton, Rochdale and Exeter, all failed to win.

Burton were held 1-1 at home by Bristol Rovers, Billy Kee's 50th-minute equaliser for the hosts cancelling out David Clarkson's opener on the half-hour mark.

Rochdale lost 2-1 at home to Morecambe, for whom Jack Redshaw scored twice (10 and 66).

George Donnelly gave Rochdale hope by netting in the 73rd minute, but they could not get a leveller.

Exeter went down 3-0 at Northampton, whose goals came from Adebayo Akinfenwa (25), Kelvin Langmead (39) and Alex Nicholls (84).

The Yorkshire derby between Bradford and York ended in a 1-1 draw at Valley Parade as Zavon Hines' 59th-minute leveller for the hosts cancelled out Ashley Chambers' goal just before half-time.

Britt Assombalonga scored twice as Southend stuck three times after the break to claim a 3-0 win at Rotherham. David Martin completed the scoring.

Torquay were 3-1 winners at home to Accrington.

Rene Howe put United ahead with a fifth-minute penalty, but Padraig Amond levelled in the 65th minute.

Billy Bodin put Torquay back in front two minutes later and Lee Mansell made the points safe 10 points from time.

'I'm really pleased,' he told the club's offiicial website.

'It's an amazing feeling to be signing a new deal at such an exciting time in the club's future.

'This summer has been my first proper involvement with the first team and I've enjoyed every moment. I've been in and around the first team over the last few years and now I want to step that up a level.'

Ehmer was later joined in penning a new deal by Michael Doughty.

The 19-year-old has first-team experience thanks to loan spells at Woking, Crawley and Aldershot and has also been capped by Wales at Under-19 level.

Doughty was part of Hughes' first-team squad during pre-season and is delighted to sign a three-year extension to his contract.

'It's a great feeling,' he said. 'It's nice to know the manager wants me here as part of the long-term future.'
