Steve Kabba smashed four second-half goals as Barnet came from behind to win 4-1 at Burton and claim three priceless points in their battle to avoid the drop from npower League Two.

Sam Winnall had given third-bottom Burton an 11th-minute lead but Kabba began his one-man salvage mission with a 53rd-minute strike and completed his four-goal haul 11 minutes from time.

Rock-bottom Stockport remain in grave danger after they slipped to a 2-0 defeat at second-placed Wycombe. Lewis Montrose and a Scott Rendell penalty kept the home side on course for automatic promotion.

Chesterfield maintained their 11-point lead and sent Port Vale tumbling out of the play-off places as second-half goals from Jack Lester and Deane Smalley secured a 2-0 home win.

Shrewsbury stay third after coming from behind to hammer Macclesfield 4-1. Hamza Bencherif put the visitors in front but a Lionel Ainsworth double as well as strikes by Jon Taylor and Matt Harrold helped the Shrews hold on to their one point advantage over fourth-placed Bury, who beat Oxford 3-0 through Ryan Lowe and a Nicholas Ajose double.

Stevenage stay fifth after a 2-1 win over Bradford at Broadhall Way. John Mousinho opened the scoring with a 37th- minute penalty and despite a David Syers equaliser, Darius Charles hit the winner on 77 minutes.

Torquay were the day's biggest beneficiaries as they jumped to sixth place with a late 2-0 win over Lincoln. Chris Zebroski broke the deadlock on 74 minutes and Gavin Tomlin added a second 10 minutes later.

Gillingham slipped to seventh after a goalless home draw with Hereford, while Accrington Stanley continued their march into contention with a 3-1 win over Northampton, an Ian Craney double and a strike by Sean McConville giving them a three-goal lead before a Michael Jacobs' consolation.

Crewe's play-off prospects remain slim but they took their frustration out on Cheltenham with an 8-1 win at Gresty Road, with Clayton Donaldson and Joel Grant both scoring hat-tricks. Shaun Miller and Ashley Westwood also scored for Alex with Wesley Thomas on target for the Robins.

Rotherham's slide out of contention continued as James Spencer grabbed a late Morecambe winner at the Don Valley Stadium, while Southend and Aldershot played out a goalless draw.
