Last updated : 13 September 2008 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
Bradford City maintained their 100% start to their home campaign as they had to come from behind at Valley Parade to take all 3-points against Exeter City. Gill had given the Devon side a 38th minute lead, but that was as good as it got as Thorne (54th and 68th minutes), and Boulding (59th and 72nd minutes) ensured that the points remained in Yorkshire. Bradford City 1st, Exeter City 13th.

Bury also maintained their 100% start at Gigg Lane as they hosted Lincoln City. Morrell gave the home side a 30th minute lead, which was cancelled out when Buchanan put past his own keeper in the 37th minute. Sodje restored the advantage in the 50th minute, with a Bishop penalty in the 66th minute securing the win. Bury 2nd, Lincoln City 19th.

Shrewsbury Town rattled up the biggest win of the day at the New Meadow as they more than saw off Gillingham with a 7-0 thrashing. The goal scorers for the Shrews were .... Jackson (27 mins), Hibbert (30 mins), Davies (42 mins and 87 mins), Coughlan (45 mins), Cansdell-Sherriff (52 mins) and Holt (58th min pen)! The journey back to north Kent will not be a happy one for the Gills. Shrewsbury Town 4th, Gillingham 8th.

Dagenham & Redbridge left it late to secure the points against Chesterfield at Victoria Road after Saunders gave the home side a 2nd minute lead. The home fans had to wait until Nwokeji (87 mins) and Benson (88 mins) secured the win. Dagenham & Redbridge 5th, Chesterfield 9th.

Luton Town claimed their first home league win of the season to help close the gap on the rest of League Two as they left it late to claim a vital win over Aldershot Town at Kenilworth Road. Spillane gave the home side a 17th minute lead, with Grant levelling for the Hampshire side in the 51st minute. Hall restored the lead in the 89th minute with Martin scoring the decisive goal in the 95th minute of time. Luton Town 24th, Aldershot Town 7th.

Darlington were another side to come from behind to claim a win. Their win at The Arena came at the expence of Port Vale, who took the lead through Rodgers in the 28th minute. Darlington levelled through Burgmeier in the 38th minute, with Hatch scoring the winner in the 77th minute. Darlington 10th, Port Vale 12th.

Accrington Stanley helped Notts County to their 5th draw in 6 League matches at Livingstone Road. Both sides left it late though as Canham gave County a 90th minute lead, only to see Ryan level in the 92nd minute! Accrington Stanley 11th, Notts County 17th.

Chester City secured their first away win of the campaign with a convincing 3-1 success over Grimsby Town at Blundell Park. An Ellison hat trick in the 3rd, 80th and 87th minutes only saw a response from North in the 52nd minute for the hosts. Grimsby Town 20th, Chester City 14th.

Rochdale must have thought that they had done enough to secure the points against Rotherham United at the Don Valley Stadium. But in the end, both had to settle for a point. Dale had taken a 2-goal lead through Rhodes (43rd min) and Buckley (51st min), but saw McArdle put past his own keeper in the 77th minute, leaving Reid to level matters in the 95th minute of time. Rotherham United 22nd, Rochdale 15th.

AFC Bournemouth, even with a change in manager, are still searching for their first League win of the campaign, and were left licking their wounds after 10-man Macclesfield claimed a win at Dean Court. The only goal of the game came in the 2nd minute through Evans, who was sent off 15 minutes later. AFC Bournemouth 23rd, Macclesfield 16th.

Barnet claimed their first point of the season thanks to a 1-1 draw over Morcambe at Underhill. Adomah gave the home side an 18th minute lead. The points were shared when O'Carroll levelled in the 42nd minute. Barnet 21st, Morcambe 18th.

The only other game in League Two saw Wycombe Wanderers (3rd) draw 0-0 with Brentford (6th) at Adams Park.
