Strikers Shaun Miller and Clayton Donaldson each claimed doubles as Crewe belatedly opened their npower League Two points account with a 7-0 demolition of Barnet.

Miller opened the scoring after just four minutes and Donaldson added a second 11 minutes before the break, but the home side scored five times in the second half with the pair doubling their individual tallies as Joel Grant, David Artell and Ajay Leitch-Smith also helped themselves.

But there were even more goals at the Don Valley Stadium, where visitors Cheltenham scores four times, but still left empty-handed. Rotherham striker Adam Le Fondre plundered four goals as his side came from behind to see off the Robins with a remarkable 6-4 victory.

There were plenty of goals too at Chesterfield, where Danny Whitaker's hat-trick paved the way for a 4-0 win over Hereford which sent them into second place in the table, but leaders Torquay maintained their perfect start to the campaign with a 2-0 victory over 10-man Bradford.

Danny Stevens gave the home side a second-minute lead and the visitors were dealt another blow when Robbie Threlfall was dismissed for handball eight minutes later.

Bantams keeper Jon McLaughlin saved the resulting penalty from Nicky Wroe, but Chris Zebroski completed the scoring with 66 minutes gone.

Justin and Marc Richards were both on the scoresheet as Port Vale won 3-1 at Southend, but Aldershot's Anthony Charles denied Shrewsbury victory with a first-half equaliser.

Sean McConville's hat-trick secured a 3-0 win for Accrington Stanley at home to Macclesfield, and Aaron Webster struck twice as Burton Albion saw off Morecambe 3-2.

Stevenage striker Charlie Griffin scored twice as the promoted club claimed their first League Two success with a 3-1 win over Stockport, and Lincoln left Gillingham with all three points, courtesy of Cian Hughton's ninth minute effort.

Northampton claimed their second point of the campaign at Bury, although Steve Guinan's first half penalty looked like it would give them all three until David Worrall's 69th-minute equaliser, and Wycombe's home clash with Oxford ended goalless.
