Chesterfield replaced Port Vale at the summit of npower League 2 courtesy of a 2-1 away win over Wycombe.

Craig Davies was the match-winner, netting in the 27th and 73rd minutes, with Ben Strevens scoring for Wanderers in between.

Chesterfield still needed Vale to slip up in order to go top and they did so, coming away with a goalless draw at home to Gillingham.

Third-placed Rotherham needed a late double to defeat 10-man Accrington 3-2.

Stanley went one up through Andy Parkinson in the ninth minute before losing Kevin Long to a red card eight minutes later. Adam Le Fondre converted the ensuing penalty before Jimmy Ryan (49) and Exodus Geohaghon (81) teed up Ryan Cresswell's last-gasp winner.

Fourth-placed Bury edged a thrilling encounter with hosts Torquay 4-3 having gone two behind to strikes from Chris Robinson and Chris Zebroski.

Ryan Lowe (27, pen), Nicky Ajose (33) and Steven Schumacher (51) turned that into a lead before Zebroski's second restored parity ahead of Mike Jones' 71st minute winner.

Shrewsbury kept pace with the play-off pack with a 2-0 defeat of Lincoln, Jake Robinson and Mark Wright the men on target.

Lowly Bradford earned a much-needed three points with a 3-1 win over visiting Cheltenham.

Josh Low put the Robins ahead but Dave Syers, Lee Hendrie and James Hanson hit back.
