It's three straight league wins for Yeovil. Byron Webster got the all-important goal five minutes before half-time. The defender scored his second goal in three games when he fired in a loose ball following a corner.

Crewe upped the tempo in the second half, but they couldn't find a way past Marek Stech, who made several good saves in the Glovers' goal.

LEAGUE TWO

Torquay move into the play-off positions after their second home win a week. Danny Stevens scored the only goal of an uneventful game to beat Morecambe at Plainmoor.

Stevens' first goal of the campaign came on the half hour when he collected Billy Bodin's pass before slotting past Shrimps goalkeeper Barry Roche and in off the far post.

The visitors responded with Lewis Alessandra's shot being tipped over the bar by Michael Poke.

Bodin then had a shot held by Roche, with Rene Howe lurking for a rebound.

There were few chances in the second half. Roche came up for two Morecambe corners in injury time, and came close with a pair of headers, but Torquay held on for the three points.

Argyle slipped to back-to-back away defeats after going down at Rotherham's impressive New York Stadium.

The Yorkshiremen have now won six games out of eight at their new home and looked in confident mood against the Pilgrims. Jake Cole was on top form when he denied Rotherham twice in a minute in the first half.

He dived full length to tip Ben Pringle’s low shot around the post. Then from the resulting corner, palmed away Alex Revell's header.

But he could do nothing about Rotherham's winner 17 minutes from time. Former Exeter City striker Daniel Nardiello's low cross was deflected into the net with Kieran Agard claiming the crucial touch.

Guy Madjo had Argyle's best chance, but the striker couldn't direct his header on-target.

Exeter City suffered their fourth defeat in five matches after a heavy defeat at Cheltenham.

All the goals came in the second half with defender Keith Lowe scoring twice, and debutant loan signing Lawson D'Ath also on-target.

Exeter almost took the lead shortly before half-time when Jamie Cureton's effort was cleared off the line by former Grecian Billy Jones.

Cheltenham opened the scoring ten minutes into the second half. Darryl Duffy and D'Ath combined. The Reading midfielder ran towards goal and stroked the ball past Artur Krysiak.

Cureton almost levelled, but Scott Brown made an important save.

It was soon to become 2-0. Jones' corner was headed towards goal by Steve Elliott, and Lowe was on the line to poke home.

Brown, making his 200th appearance for the Robins, made several more good saves to keep Exeter out.

And the three points were confirmed late in the game as Lowe once again tapped in from close range to cap an impressive second half for the home side.
