Danny Kedwell was on target as Gillingham defeated Barnet

Gillingham manager Martin Allen masterminded a 3-1 victory over former club Barnet that kept his side at the top of npower League Two

The Gills raced into a two-goal lead through Jack Payne's 20-yarder and Danny Kedwell's header after 11 minutes. Jack Saville nodded Barnet back into the game but Deon Burton restored the two-goal cushion six minutes before half-time.

Exeter made it three wins from three away games as they ended Oxford's 100% home record with a 4-2 victory at Kassam Stadium.

Jamie Cureton's well-taken finish from distance, Scot Bennett's header from Liam Sercombe's corner and another from veteran striker Cureton put the visitors three clear.

Jake Forster-Caskey's penalty and Alfie Potter's header reduced the arrears, but John O'Flynn settled matters before James Constable received two quickfire bookings late on.

Port Vale's Tom Pope hit four goals against former club Rotherham in a 6-2 rout. Louis Dodds and Ashley Vincent grabbed their other goals, while Michael O'Connor and Daniel Nardiello (penalty) netted for the shellshocked Millers.

Jon Parkin's hat-trick swept Fleetwood to a 4-0 win at Morecambe - their third successive league victory, while Jason Walker maintained York's unbeaten run as he snatched a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Chesterfield.

Northampton condemned AFC Wimbledon to a third successive away defeat after goals from Alex Nicholls and Chris Hackett completed a 2-0 win and Wycombe received the perfect start against Cheltenham but failed to capitalise in a 1-1 draw at Adams Park.

Torquay claimed their first clean sheet in four games as they fought out a goalless draw with Plymouth, while substitute Fabian Broghammer saved Bristol Rovers from a fourth defeat in as many home games after scoring from close range to secure a 2-2 draw with Aldershot.

Matthew Paterson scored his first goal for Burton to seal a 1-0 victory at Rochdale, while Accrington and Bradford drew 1-1 and Britt Assombalonga scored twice as Southend beat Dagenham 3-1.
