Stockport remain bottom in the Coca-Cola League One table but picked up a point after a battling goalless draw against Gillingham at Edgeley Park.

Southend are also in deep trouble, both on and off the pitch following another court appearance this week over unpaid tax bills.

The Shrimpers were left frustrated as they failed to see off fellow strugglers Exeter, who will have been happier with the stalemate at Roots Hall.

There were, though, plenty of goals at Griffin Park, where Brentford drew 3-3 with MK Dons after two strikes during stoppage time.

Aaron Wilbraham looked to have won it for the visitors, but there was still time for Carl Cort to net a dramatic equaliser.

Wilbraham (11) had put MK Dons in front, and while Sam Wood (27) levelled, Jermaine Easter's penalty restored their lead.

Ben Strevens (70) made it 2-2, before the grandstand finale during the three action-packed minutes of stoppage time.

Yeovil had midfielder Gavin Williams sent off in the second half, but still thrashed Hartlepool 4-0 at Huish Park, where Gavin Tomlin (20, pen), Williams (36), Dean Bowditch (71) and an own goal gave the west country side a comprehensive win.

Bristol Rovers and Tranmere drew 0-0, with Rovers defender Zoumana Bakayogo sent off in stoppage time while Sean Thornton scored twice in the second half as Leyton Orient beat Walsall 2-0.

At Oldham, Polish forward Pawel Abbott netted a stoppage time penalty as the Latics snatched a 2-2 draw with Wycombe.
