        League Two Round-up | Gills continue strong start

        2023/09/16 18:15

        Gillingham are top of League Two after following a 2-1 win at home over Morecambe.

        The Gills were second in the table going into Saturday after Notts County won 2-0 on the road against Salford City on Friday.

        It was 1-1 after just 11 minutes gone as Gillingham hosted Morecambe with George Lapslie opening the scoring for the home side and Michael Mellon quickly restoring parity.

        With 23 minutes gone, Connor Mahoney scored what would become the winning goal with Gillingham’s afternoon made easier in the 75th minute when Mellon picked up a second yellow card.

        Swindon Town are behind Gillingham and Notts County in the third automatic promotion place. The Robins recorded a 2-0 win at home to Walsall with Charlie Austin opening the scoring after just two minutes. 

        Tom Knowles’ second yellow card midway through the second half helped Swindon secure a win that was wrapped up by Rushian Murphy’s 88th-minute goal.

        Just behind the top three is Wrexham who moved into fourth from seventh after a 3-0 win at home to Grimsby Town with goals from Ollie Palmer, William Boyle, and Elliot Lee.

        Breaking into the play-off places this weekend is Crawley Town. The Red Devils looked like they were going to be held to a 2-2 draw at home to Tranmere Rovers until Klaidi Lolos struck late to earn all three points for Crawley.

        Elsewhere, Stockport County won 2-1 away to MK Dons. Louie Barry scored in his fourth game in a row for the Hatters while Nick Powell scored the other one with his first goal for the club.

        Towards the bottom of the table, Doncaster Rovers won their first game of the season – 2-1 away to Forest Green Rovers thanks to Ben Close’s late winner – which sees them out of the relegation zone that is now occupied by Tranmere and Sutton United.
