Due to Emirates FA Cup action across the weekend, only four fixtures were scheduled to take place in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday afternoon.
Port Vale travelled to Forest Green Rovers hoping to bounce back from the New Year’s Day defeat to Notts County, but Reuben Reid’s 61st-minute strike handed the hosts all three points.
Chesterfield remain in the bottom two after they suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat away to Accrington Stanley, whilst the win sees John Coleman’s side climb back into the play-off places.
There was also plenty of goals as Colchester United hosted Cheltenham Town at the Weston Homes Community Stadium, but it was the visitors who ran out 4-1 victors to punish U’s winger Kyel Reid who was sent off in the first half.
Grimsby Town’s recent poor form continued in the final game of the weekend as they fell to a home defeat against Morecambe, Kevin Ellison and Steven Old the goal scorers.
