Rotherham moved up one place to fourth in Coca-Cola League Two with a 2-1 victory over Grimsby at the Don Valley Stadium.

Adam Le Fondre beat the offside trap to race through and give the Millers the lead before adding a second seven minutes before the break.

Wes Fletcher's stoppage-time goal proved to be a mere consolation for Grimsby, who remain six points adrift of safety.

Shrewsbury stretched their unbeaten run to four matches thanks to goals from Dave Hibbert and substitute Steven Leslie in a 2-1 win over Dagenham and Redbridge. Paul Benson was on target for the Daggers, who had Scott Doe sent off for a bad foul on Terry Dunfield with 20 minutes left.

Crewe ended their four-match unbeaten run in emphatic style as they swept aside rock-bottom Darlington 3-0.

Calvin Zola marked his return from injury by scoring twice and Joel Grant also got on the scoresheet for Dario Gradi's side.

Cleveland Taylor's 84th-minute goal was enough to steal a 3-2 win for Burton at Torquay.

Scott Rendell and Chris Robertson gave the home side a 2-0 lead before Russell Penn and Shaun Harrad restored parity and Taylor rounded off a remarkable comeback with a 12-yard strike late on.

Chesterfield leapfrogged Notts County into eighth despite being held to a goalless draw at Northampton.

Chris Herd and Brian Gilmour helped Lincoln to a 2-1 win over Bradford while Mark Duffy's strike ensured Morecambe beat Barnet by the same scoreline. In the day's other fixture Port Vale and Macclesfield played out a goalless draw at Vale Park.
