Top scorer Paddy Madden scored his 16th goal of the season as Yeovil Town won for the sixth consecutive league game.

Madden scored the only goal of the game on the stroke of half-time. Sam Foley ran fifty yards before playing in the Irishman, who took one touch before firing past Joe Murphy.

The home side dominated the second half as they pushed for an equaliser. They hit the bar and had numerous shots kept out by Marek Stech and his defence.

Gary Johnson's men held on for the three points and are now just five points off top spot.

Exeter City picked up a club record tenth away win of the season after a 3-0 success at Morecambe.

All three goals came in the second half. Jamie Cureton scored twice, with Arron Davies also on target.

Cureton’s first came just after the hour mark. Tommy Doherty threaded the ball through, and the veteran striker fired past Barry Roche in the Morecambe goal.

Davies doubled the advantage five minutes from time after meeting Jimmy Keohane's cross.

And Cureton confirmed the win in the final minute, finishing brilliantly from a narrow angle.

The Grecians move up to fourth in the table, just one point from the automatic promotion places.

Plymouth Argyle climbed out of the relegation zone and above Aldershot with a crucial three points at the EBB Stadium.

Both goals were scored in the first half by loan signing Jason Banton. His first came after just five minutes when he hit a shot from the edge of the area from Conor Hourihane’s free-kick.

The lead only lasted six minutes. Danny Hylton's shot was saved by Jake Cole, but the ball fell to Peter Vincenti, who tapped in from close range.

But five minutes before half-time, Reuben Reid ran the length of the pitch before squaring to Banton, who stepped inside and curled a shot into the top corner.

The home side pushed for an equaliser in the second half, but Argyle's defence was equal to everything thrown at them, and John Sheridan remains unbeaten since replacing Carl Fletcher in the hot-seat.

Torquay United dominated this game, but couldn't find the net.

Jon Parkin scored the only goal of the game for the visitors in the 26th minute, heading in Dean Howell's cross.

Fleetwood goalkeeper Scott Davies earned the man-of-the-match award after keeping out efforts from Ashley Yeoman, Billy Bodin and Kevin Nicholson.

And when Davies was finally beaten in stoppage time, Aaron Downes' header hit the crossbar.
