Forest Green make it four wins out of four

This week in League Two saw some high-scoring and entertaining matches.

League-leaders Forest Green Rovers smashed six past Crawley Town in a 6-3 win for the home side.

Nicky Cadden scored a hat-trick, his first goal coming within the first minute. Mathew Stevens put Forest Green back ahead after Jake Hessenthaler scored the first of his two goals.

James Matt, Jake Young and Kwesi Appiah were the other scorers in what was easily the stand-out match of the League two fixture list this weekend.


Exeter score four; Bradford leave it late; Rochdale get first win

Another high scoring game in the division saw Exeter City put four past visitors Bristol Rovers to record their first win of the season.

Exeter were straight out of the traps and led 4-0 after just 24 minutes, thanks to a brace from Matt Jay and a goal apiece from Timothee Dieng and Harry George Kite.

Bristol Rovers pulled one back thanks to a finish from Sam Finley midway through the second half.

Mansfield Town and Bradford City were also involved in a five-goal thriller with the Bantams scoring late to seal victory.

Andy Cooks’ late goal three minutes from time proved to be the deciding factor in an entertaining game at Field Mill.

Rochdale finally got their first win of the season thanks to a good performance at previously unbeaten Northampton Town.

Max Taylor scored the first of the Rochdale goals.

Josh Andrews and Abraham Odoh also scored for Rochdale while Josh Guthrie replied for Northampton, who were beaten 3-1.


Salford without a win; Oldham bottom of the table; Sutton salvage a point

Swindon Town claimed a second win of the season to send them into the top three and continue Salford’s miserable start.

Jack Payne’s goal early in the second half sent the Robins home with a 1-0 win away at Salford City.

Scunthorpe United’s first win of the season still evades them. The Iron looked to be claiming a first three points of the season thanks to a clever overhead kick from new loan signing Jake Scrimshaw on his debut, having joined just 24 hours before the match.

Still, newly promoted Sutton showed their resolve and equalised six minutes from time thanks to striker Donovan Wilson whole stole in at the near post and beat Scunthorpe defender Emmanuel Onariase to the ball and poked home from 6 yards out.

The other results in the division saw Oldham lose 2-1 to Colchester to leave them with a fourth successive defeat.

Hartlepool beat Walsall 2-0, while Stevenage finished all square with Port vale, both teams finishing with a goal apiece. Carlisle vs Leyton Orient also ended 1-1 thanks to Harry Smith’s leveller.

Newport gained a second victory of the season, beating Tranmere Rovers 1-0 at Prenton Park. Harrogate Town continued their perfect start to the season with a 2-1 win over Barrow, although Harrogate have only played two games so far this season.


Overview

These results mean Forest Green continues to lead the way with maximum points.

Bradford and Swindon make up the top three, respectively. Mansfield, Stevenage, Hartlepool and Harrogate all sit in the top seven. Down at the bottom, Oldham are the only team yet to register a point. Walsall join them in the bottom two with a single point.

Sutton United and Salford City are both languishing in 21st and 22nd place.
