Coca-Cola League Two promotion hopefuls Notts County failed to mark new executive chairman Peter Trembling's successful takeover with a victory as they went down 2-1 at home against Accrington Stanley.

Bournemouth are now four points behind after they crashed 5-0 at Morecambe, who have won seven straight league games. Stewart Drummond (15), Craig Stanley (23) and Lawrence Wilson (25) made it 3-0 by half-time, before Cherries defender Marvin Bartley was sent off with a penalty from Phil Jevons (50) and Mark Duffy, in stoppage time, completing the rout.

Third-placed Rotherham won 4-2 at Bradford. Lee Bullock (19) gave the hosts the lead, but Kevin Ellison's brace (30 & 37) saw Rotherham ahead at half-time. Michael Flynn levelled (46) before a long-range free-kick from Gary Roberts (78) and Drewe Broughton (88) wrapped up the points.

Greg Pearson netted a first-half hat-trick as Burton thrashed Aldershot 6-1. Steven Kabba (43 & 72) also grabbed a brace, with Shaun Harrad (84) scoring number six after John Grant's consolation (67) for the visitors, who had defender Anthony Charles sent off following a professional foul on Jacques Maghoma.

Torquay also went goal crazy, thumping bottom club Darlington 5-0 at Plainmoor, Chris Zebroski scoring twice.

Fourth-placed Dagenham beat Bury 3-1, with Paul Benson netting a brace to end a run of three home games without a win while Chesterfield returned to wining ways with a 1-0 home win over Cheltenham, Jack Lester grabbing his ninth goal of the season just before the break.

Crewe won 2-1 at Barnet, Clayton Donaldson scoring the crucial goal in the second half, and Macclesfield beat Hereford 3-1 at Moss Rose, where Emile Sinclair netted a brace.
