Millers on top after comeback

05 September 2009 05:10
Rotherham United came from behind to beat Chesterfield 3-1 as they moved to the top of the League Two table. After Jamie Lowry had given the Spireites the lead from the penalty spot, United, without a manager after placing Mark Robins on gardening leave, hit back to take all three points thanks to goals in the last 22 minutes by Danny Harrison, Adam Le Fondre and Kevin Ellison. Dagenham & Redbridge had to settle for a point after a 1-1 draw at Cheltenham Town and slip to third in the table behind Bournemouth who won 2-1 at Torquay United. Brett Pitman gave the visitors at 49th-minute lead at Plainmoor and, although Chris Todd grabbed the Gulls' equaliser, veteran striker Steve Fletcher scored a late winner for Eddie Howe's team. Barnet are fourth after their impressive 3-1 win at Northampton Town on Friday, just ahead of Crewe Alexandra ater Gudjon Thordarson's side won the local derby against Macclesfield Town 2-1 at Gresty Road. Notts County had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Burton Albion at Meadow Lane despite former Carlisle United striker Karl Hawley putting them ahead. Winless Darlington remain at the foot of the table after losing 3-0 at Lincoln City. The managerless Red Imps, who parted company with Peter Jackson earleir in the week, cruised to victory thanks to a Rene Howe brace and a further goal by Chris Fagan. Grimsby Town remain in the relegation zone after losing 4-0 at Port Vale while Tristan Plummer scored twice for Hereford United at Aldershot Town. However, the Bulls are still searching for their first win of the campaign after Gary Waddock's side rescued a point with two late goals. Bury's poor start to the season continued as they lost 2-0 to crisis club Accrington Stanley at Gigg Lane while Bradford City's revival continued with a 2-1 victory at stuttering Shrewsbury Town. Finally on Friday evening, Rochdale produced a stirring second-half comeback at Christie Park to rescue a point from a 3-3 draw with Morecambe.
