Michael Symes' penalty earned Bournemouth a 1-1 npower League One draw with Rochdale after Gary Jones had given the visitors a first-half lead from the spot.

Andy Bishop's header and Matt Oakley's own goal gave Bury a 2-0 win against Exeter, while Brentford secured a last-gasp point at Carlisle.

David Clarkson gave the Bees a ninth-minute lead in Cumbria only for James Berrett and an own goal from Clarkson to change the game. However, with just two minutes remaining the west Londoners secured a 2-2 draw through Toumani Diagouraga.

The game between Colchester and Yeovil also ended 2-2, Yeovil taking the lead after just 40 seconds through Gavin Massey.

Goals from Andy Bond and Anthony Wordsworth either side of half-time gave the Us the lead, before Massey's second of the afternoon earned a share of the spoils.

Alex Nicholls goal with nine minutes remaining gave Walsall a 1-1 draw at Wycombe, for whom Ben Strevens broke the deadlock.

Finally, Leyton Orient's resurgence continued as they secured a 3-2 victory at Scunthorpe thanks to Kevin Lisbie's brace and Scott Cuthbert's header. Andy Barcham hit a brace for the home side.
