Dagenham and Redbridge went top of Coca-Cola League Two with a 3-0 win at home to Lincoln.

While leaders Notts County slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Barnet, the Daggers were comfortable winners.

Jon Nurse (13, 72) and Danny Green were the goalscorers as Dagenham cruised to an impressive victory against a mediocre Lincoln outfit.

Notts County had been heading for a draw until Jake Hyde's crushing winner four minutes into added time at Underhill. Hyde crashed home the winner after being set up by namesake Micah Hyde's header.

Rotherham moved up to second spot courtesy of a well-deserved 3-1 win away to Macclesfield.

Adam Le Fondre (24) and Tom Pope (37) put the Millers 2-0 up before Matthew Tipton pulled one back before the break, with Danny Harrison (87) rounding off the win.

Bournemouth are up to third in the table after Liam Feeney's 51st-minute winner was enough to give them a 1-0 win at home to Crewe, who slip from third to sixth.

Meanwhile, Aldershot are seventh thanks to their 2-1 win at struggling Grimsby, Darlington are still without a win after they drew 1-1 at home to Cheltenham and Bradford scored in both first and second-half injury time to beat Torquay 2-0 at Valley Parade.

Three goals in the first 11 minutes helped Burton to an edgy 3-2 win at home to Northampton, Shrewsbury beat Accrington 3-1 away from home and Rochdale beat fierce rivals Bury 3-0 on a comfortable afternoon at Spotland with local lad Joe Thompson among the goalscorers.

Elsewhere Hereford and Port Vale drew 2-2 and Chesterfield shared a 1-1 draw at home to Morecambe.
