LEAGUE TWO

  • YORK CITY 0 - 2 TORQUAY UNITED

Torquay United won for the first time in five matches as they beat York City 2-0 this afternoon.

The Gulls opened the scoring in the tenth minute. Billy Bodin and Kevin Nicholson combined down the left flank, and Nicholson's teasing cross was superbly turned in by Danny Stevens on his return to the side.

Michael Poke saved well from Lanre Oyebanjo and Alex Rodman, before Joe Oastler sealed the win with his first goal in senior football, after good work from Rene Howe.

After two outstanding away wins, Exeter City were brought crashing back down to earth.

Ian Sharps’ header three minutes before half-time was enough to give Rotherham the win at St James Park.

Andy Warrington in the visitors' goal saved well from Jamie Cureton and Alan Gow.

Rotherham had substitute Mitchell Rose sent off late in the game, but the Millers held on for the three points.

The pressure is building on manager Carl Fletcher after Plymouth's third straight defeat.

Argyle are without a win in eight games, but could consider themselves unlucky against Chesterfield.

Curtis Nelson had a header cleared off the line, while Andres Gurrieri hit the crossbar.

The Pilgrims also had a late penalty appeal turned down when substitute Joe Lennox’s cross appeared to hit the arm of Chesterfield’s Nathan Smith.

Marc Richards scored the only goal of the game in the 66th minute, when he fired home after Jack Lester’s cushioned chest-down.

LEAGUE ONE

Yeovil suffered a disappointing home defeat to struggling Carlisle - the visitors winning for the first time in five matches.

18-year-old Mark Beck scored twice and put United 2-0 up with a goal on either side of the break.

Yeovil, missing in-form striker Paddy Madden who was unable to play against his parent club, pulled a goal back in the 65th minute through substitute Reuben Reid.

But Joe Garner confirmed the win for the Cumbrians with a header just five minutes later.
