Plymouth Argyle cruised to victory over Exeter City in the Devon derby.

Goals from Matty Kennedy, Ryan Taylor and Jake Jervis ended the Grecians seven-match winning run and puts the Pilgrims within three of league leaders Doncaster Rovers with a game in hand.

Donny surprisingly dropped points on Friday night against bottom of the table Newport County at Rodney Parade.

Both teams had opportunities to secure three points but had to settle for a point as Darren Ferguson’s side failed to add to their league at the top, while Newport missed the chance to climb out of the relegation zone.

Blackpool secured an impressive win at third-placed Carlisle United to climb to 11th in League Two.

The Tangerines netted four times to end a run of four draws in succession.

Two second-half goals from Danny Hylton earned Luton Town an important three points over Crawley Town in their bid of automatic promotion.

James Collins had given the Red Devils the lead on the hour before Hatters striker Hylton took his personal tally for the season to 17.

Mansfield stormed into the play-off places with a thrashing of struggling Hartlepool.

It was a fourth win league win on the bounce for Steve Evans’ men and they have now not conceded for 352 minutes in League Two.

Matt Godden was on target again for Stevenage as they recorded a third win in a row with victory over promotion-chasing Wycombe.

Godden has now scored eight times in his last eight games, and has 15 in total this season, with his penalty being sandwiched by strikes from Steven Schumacher and the excellent Tom Pett.

Matt Clarke and Kal Naismith scored to help promotion-chasing Portsmouth return to winning ways with a home success against lowly Accrington.

Pompey were in desperate need of the points following back-to-back defeats and sit four points off a automatic promotion spot.

Elsewhere there were 2-1 wins for Colchester United and Notts County over Barnet and Cheltenham Town respectively.
