Leaders Wycombe moved two points clear at the Coca-Cola League Two summit thanks to a last-gasp equaliser at Grimsby.

Wanderers drew 1-1 with the Mariners despite being down to 10 men in the closing stages.

Nick Hegarty put Town ahead after barely a minute and Wycombe were forced to battle to find a way back. An equaliser looked highly unlikely when Tommy Doherty was sent off for a professional foul in the 86th minute only for Leon Johnson to head home from close range in the 90th minute.

Dagenham and Redbridge beat Barnet 2-0 on Friday to briefly close the gap to one point while Bradford leapt to third spot after scoring three times in the last 10 minutes to beat Accrington 3-2. The Bantams were 2-0 down in the 80th minute when Michael Boulding volleyed home. Barry Conlon headed an equaliser eight minutes later before Peter Thorne drilled home a dramatic winner a minute from time.

Shrewsbury slipped to a 2-1 defeat at home to Port Vale in another match with late drama. Michael Symes' 88th-minute goal for the Shrews cancelled out Louis Dodds' early opener only for Marc Richards to win it for Vale five minutes into added time.

Bury slipped to fourth after a 1-0 defeat to Exeter at Gigg Lane, Richard Logan scoring the only goal early on.

Rotherham moved a further point into the black with a goalless draw against Bournemouth. Both sides began the season with deductions and while the Millers now have two points, the Cherries remain on minus seven.

Luton - hit with the biggest points penalty of all - are still on minus 18 after a 2-1 defeat at home to Darlington. Gregg Blundell scored an injury-time winner for the visitors.

Mid-table Gillingham enjoyed a 5-0 romp against Morecambe. Mark Bentley (21), Simeon Jackson (24 and 36), David Artell (own goal, 73) and Mark McCammon (80) were responsible for the goals.

Macclesfield won 4-2 at home to Aldershot as Danny Thomas' brace proved to be crucial while Chesterfield drew 1-1 with Chester.
