Dean Holdsworth's first game npower League Two match in charge of Aldershot looked set to bring all three points when Luke Guttridge put the visitors ahead at promotion-chasing Bury nine minutes in - but the Shakers earned a 1-1 draw thanks to Steven Schumacher's leveller (71).

A last-minute equaliser from Charlie Taylor earned struggling Barnet the same scoreline against Shrewsbury, who took the lead through a Mark Hughes own goal (27).

That result enabled Gillingham to climb into the top seven as Cody McDonald's goal (32) earned them a 1-0 win over Northampton, while Oxford closed to within one point of the play-off places with a 2-1 victory over Bradford.

Dave Syers gave the hosts a ninth-minute lead, which they held onto until 13 minutes from time when two goals in five minutes from Steven MacLean and Tom Craddock turned the tables.

Hereford continued their good form to climb off the bottom of the table with a 3-0 victory over Stockport - their first home win of the season.

Fresh from reaching the fourth round of the FA Cup, the Bulls made it four wins in a row thanks to an own goal from Andy Halls (3), Mathieu Manset's (25) fourth in three games and a late strike from Guillem Bauza (86).

Laurence Wilson scored two penalties in the final three minutes to give Morecambe a 2-1 win over Torquay, who had only gone ahead themselves through Billy Kee's 78th-minute strike, while Leam Richardson's 89th-minute goal earned Accrington a 2-1 victory at Cheltenham.

Terry Gornell (39) put Stanley ahead but Wes Thomas (83) looked to have sealed a point for the hosts before Richardson's even later intervention.
