An 84th-minute goal by Gillingham's Curtis Weston denied League Two leaders Wycombe victory at Priestfield on Sunday.

The Chairboys were on course for their seventh away success of the season when Stuart Lewis put the ball into his own net in the 31st minute.

But Weston's long-range effort meant they had to settle for a point - and a five-point lead at the top of the table.

Brentford trimmed the gap by two points courtesy of a 2-0 win at play-off hopefuls Exeter, with two goals in four minutes from Charlie MacDonald (75) and Sam Wood (79) making sure of victory for the west London side.

Bradford ended their recent slip by moving up to third with a convincing 4-0 defeat of Morecambe, with Paul McLaren (24), Michael Boulding (66), Nicky Law (77) and Barry Conlon (87, penalty) sealing an emphatic home success.

Fourth-placed Dagenham and Redbridge ended Aldershot's unbeaten home record at the Recreation Ground, with Jon Nurse's 87th-minute goal proving decisive in a 2-1 win.

Kirk Hudson had given the Hampshire side a 16th-minute lead - but Solomon Taiwo levelled matters 11 minutes later.

Shrewsbury moved above Bury into fifth place thanks to a 76th-minute goal from prolific striker Grant Holt - Efe Sodje was dismissed for the visitors seven minutes before half-time.
