Cody McDonald scored the only goal as
Gillingham maintained a two-point lead at the top of npower League Two
with a 1-0 win at Chesterfield.

McDonald headed home from close range
five minutes into the second half at the Proact Stadium, extending the
Gills' unbeaten run to four games.

Burton brushed aside Exeter 4-2 to
record a seventh successive home league win and move into the automatic
promotion places in third.

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.

Aldershot 2 Swindon 1: Di Canio blast as 'blurry' Robins fail

Paolo Di Canio launched a furious tirade against his Swindon players after defeat by mid-table Aldershot delayed their League Two promotion celebrations by a few more days.

Swindon’s 2,000 fans packed the EBB Stadium expecting to see their side gain the point they needed to be sure of going up.

Di Canio, who wore a black armband, returned to England from his mother’s funeral in Italy the previous day and bowed his head during the minute’s silence held in her memory.

But he later hit out at his team, saying: ‘At least eight of my players were blurry. I would like to know why. Maybe I can guess why. They were so unprofessional. We are one point away from promotion but we lacked any kind of professionalism and it is like we are celebrating too early.

‘All these supporters come to see us win promotion and we played like a team going down, not up. I am worried that the attitude is so poor.’

Lethargic Swindon were a goal down after 11 minutes when Guy Madjo snapped up a rebound off goalkeeper Wes Foderingham, who failed to hold a Danny Hylton shot.

Paul Caddis equalised with a 53rd-minute penalty after Peter Vincenti handled but eight minutes later Di Canio’s night was ruined when Hylton converted Madjo’s cross.
