Wycombe extended their lead at the top of Coca-Cola League Two following a last-minute win over Accrington Stanley.

The match had been heading for a goalless draw before Chris Zebroski latched on to a long ball to slide it home from 12 yards.

The result means Wanderers are still unbeaten and their lead over Brentford is now three points.

The Bees could only draw at home with Shrewsbury despite going ahead through Charlie MacDonald in the 73rd minute.

The lead only lasted seven minutes with Chris Humphrey levelling to leave the Shrews in fifth spot.

Exeter joined Brentford in the automatic promotion places following a 1-0 win at Barnet.

Matthew Gill scored the only goal of the game with a low shot following a cross by former Sunderland and Ipswich forward Marcus Stewart in the 72nd minute. The result saw Bradford drop to fourth.

Bury started the day in fourth hoping to move into the automatic promotion places but went down to a 2-1 defeat by rock-bottom Luton at Gigg Lane.

Meanwhile, Darlington moved into the play-off places with a 3-0 win over Dagenham & Redbridge, Gillingham sit just outside the play-offs after a 2-0 win over Chester and Bournemouth remain in the relegation zone following a 1-0 home defeat by Lincoln.

Elsewhere, Rotherham were involved in a thrilling 2-1 win at Macclesfield, Chesterfield enjoyed a 3-1 win over Notts County in the derby at Saltergate, a last-minute goal by Marc Richards saw Port Vale claim a 2-1 win over Morecambe and Rochdale beat Aldershot 3-1.
