Bradford slipped out of the Coca-Cola League Two play-off places after they lost 3-1 at 15th-placed Notts County.

A first-half brace from Jonathan Forte put County comfortably in the lead before Delroy Facey bagged a third in first-half stoppage time.

Peter Thorne grabbed a late consolation for the visitors five minutes from time.

Two goals in the final four minutes saw relegation-threatened Chester come back from two goals down to snatch a point against Dagenham & Redbridge.

The promotion-chasing visitors seemed on the cusp of an important victory following first-half goals from Ben Strevens and Matt Ritchie.

But David Mannix pulled one back four minutes from time and Kevin Roberts headed in the equaliser three minutes later.

Meanwhile, Luton triumphed 3-1 at Port Vale, Aldershot beat Accrington Stanley 3-1, Rotherham won 1-0 against Lincoln and Chesterfield were held to a 1-1 draw by Barnet.
