Good day for leading teams 

Boreham Wood are hot on The Mariners’ heels, after taking a 2-0 home victory over early pacesetters Dagenham & Redbridge.

FC Halifax Town hit a goal in each half to beat Weymouth 2-0 at The Shay.  Jordan Slew and Kian Spence were on the scoresheet. 

Danny Rowe hit a hattrick and assisted the other as Chesterfield thrashed Southend United 4-0 at Roots Hall. 

Southend fans again invaded the pitch and delayed the game to protest against owner Ron Martin.  The Shrimpers are once again in the relegation places, after dropping two divisions in as many seasons. 

Rowe set up Saidou Khan for the other goal.

Bromley made it five wins out of five after picking up a comfortable 2-0 win over Torquay United.

Goals from Marcus Sablier and Omar Sowunmi were enough to defeat last season’s beaten play-off finalists. 

Bees win basement battle 

Barnet moved out of the relegation places after winning 2-1 at Dover Athletic, who continue to fall further adrift at the bottom of the table. 

Mason Enigbokan-Bloomfield and Daniel Powell helped their side climb five places in the table as every other team in the bottom seven lost. 

Aaron Cosgrave got a consolation for Dover, who are still on -9 points after being handed a 12 point deduction before the season for breaking league rules. 

Alty back to winning ways 

Phil Parkinson’s Altrincham side brushed off a midweek defeat  to beat Maidenhead United 2-0.

Goals from Matty Kosylo and Tom Peers secured all three points for The Robins who have started the season impressively.

Best of the rest

Notts County picked up an away win, beating Yeovil Town 2-0 thanks to two goals from Ruben Rodrigues.
