Yeovil and Leyton Orient were involved in a six-goal thriller which ended 3-3 in Coca-Cola League One on Saturday.

Orient were twice in front but had to rely on a 60th-minute strike from Ryan Jarvis to earn a share of the spoils.

Exeter moved up to 10th thanks to a 1-0 win at Carlisle. A 73rd-minute penalty from veteran striker Marcus Stewart settled the contest.

Oldham and Swindon shared the points in a 2-2 draw at Boundary Park.

Swindon looked to have won it when Billy Paynter put the visitors in front two minutes into injury-time. However, Oldham saved the game a minute later when Kieran Lee scored with a long-range effort.

Brighton remain second bottom after a 4-2 home defeat at the hands of Stockport. A hat-trick from Carl Baker helped County to win all three points.

Hartlepool won 1-0 at Gillingham thanks to James Brown's goal in the 64th minute.

Troubled Norwich despatched Wycombe 5-2 at Carrow Road to get Paul Lambert's City career off to a flying start.

The Canaries were 3-1 in front at half-time thanks to strikes from Grant Holt, Korey Smith, and Jon Otsemobor. Although Jon-Paul Pittman and Matt Harrold made it 3-2, Jens Askou and another from Holt ensured City earned their first victory of the season.
