Cambridge moved top of League Two with a 1-0 win at play-off contenders Newport thanks to Declan Drysdale’s goal.

Drysdale struck with 11 minutes remaining to move United two points clear of Cheltenham, who lost 1-0 at Crawley on Friday night.

Morecambe boosted their automatic promotion hopes with a 4-3 home win over Oldham as Carlos Mendes Gomes scored twice, while third-placed rivals Bolton suffered a surprise 2-1 loss at bottom side Grimsby.

Morecambe moved to within a point of Bolton as Aaron Wildig and Cole Stockton also found the target. Conor McAleny, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Kyle Jameson scored for the visitors.

Grimsby took a first-minute lead against automatic promotion contenders Bolton as Jay Matete fired into the far corner and dominated large parts of the game.
