Accrington Stanley recorded their first npower League Two win in seven games when Sean McConville's goal in the 67th minute gave them a 1-0 home win over Stevenage.

A late Phil Jevons penalty secured a point for Morecambe in a 1-1 draw at Cheltenham.

The hosts went in front just before the break when Josh Low tapped home. But Jevons grabbed his fifth goal in four games 10 minutes from time after Martin Riley had fouled James Spencer.

Lincoln continued their revival under new boss Steve Tilson with a 3-1 win that sent Hereford to the foot of the table.

Goals from Ben Hutchinson and Delroy Facey put City in command by the interval and although Stuart Fleetwood reduced the arrears in the 55th minute, Mustapha Carayol made it 3-1 two minutes later.

Cody McDonald's 40th minute goal was enough for Gillingham to secure a 1-0 win over Oxford and collect their first away win since May 2009.

Barnet remain in the relegation places just a point behind Northampton after a fine 4-1 home win against 10-man Town.

Leon McKenzie put Northampton in front in the sixth minute but they had Liam Davis sent off for a foul on Steve Kabba two minutes later.

Kabba scored from the spot and then added a second before the break.

A free-kick from Grant Basey and an injury time goal from Ricky Holmes completed the scoring.
