Shrewsbury were 2-0 winners at Southend and move up from sixth to fourth in the npower League Two table.

The goals came from Jon Taylor after 43 minutes and Matt Harold on the hour.

Gillingham moved back into the final play-off spot despite being held to a goalless draw at home by Oxford, while Morecambe and Cheltenham drew 1-1 at the Globe Arena.

Stewart Drummond headed the home team ahead after 58 minutes, but 11 minutes later Frankie Artus levelled.

Torquay sent bottom club Stockport closer to the drop with a 2-0 victory. Chris Zebroski scored the first after 13 minutes and Billy Kee added the second with a 73rd minute shot.

Stevenage were 2-0 up against Accrington Stanley with only two minutes left, but it ended 2-2.

Byron Harrison (seven minutes) and Lawrie Wilson (78) put Stevenage in command, only for Terry Gornell to get one back and then Andrew Procter to equalise with virtually the last kick of the match.

Lincoln moved up the table with a 1-0 victory at Hereford, Delroy Facey's strike after 29 minutes producing the only goal, while Barnet pushed Burton into the next-to-bottom spot with a goalless draw at Northampton. There were only six shots in the entire game.

Burton's fixture at Bury was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch and it was the same story at Moss Rose, where Macclesfield were due to take on Bradford.
