Wycombe stretched their lead at the top of League Two to eight points after they beat Bury 2-1 at Adams Park.

Matt Harrold and Angelo Balanta put the Chairboys 2-0 up before a Mike Williamson own goal gave Bury a glimmer of hope but Wycombe held on to extend their unbeaten home league run to 12 matches.

Robert Purdie's injury-time penalty moved Darlington up to sixth after their 2-1 win over Bournemouth.

Bournemouth took the lead through Danny Hollands but his goal was cancelled out by Pawel Abbott before Purdie scored from the spot after Shaun Cooper fouled Franz Burgmeier.

Rochdale jumped two places to seventh after their 3-1 win over Accrington Stanley at Spotland.

An Adam Le Fondre penalty gave Dale the lead but Peter Cavanagh pulled Accrington level before William Buckley and Kallum Higginbotham struck to stretch the hosts' unbeaten run to nine matches.

Ian Sharps scored deep into injury time to snatch a point for Rotherham against Dagenham and Redbridge while Bradford remain in third after they played out a 0-0 draw with fellow promotion rivals Shrewsbury at Valley Parade.
