Shrewsbury Town climbed into the play-off zone by beating Rochdale as Wycombe Wanderers lost at home to Bristol Rovers.
Two unbeaten runs were on the line at Gay Meadow, with Shrewsbury not having lost in 13 League Two matches, while Rochdale had gone nine games without defeat.
It was Rochdale who surrendered their record by conceding three second-half goals following an open first period.
The hosts took the lead on 48 minutes when Marc Tierney's long ball, after a Rochdale free-kick, found Leo Fortune-West, who volleyed home superbly from 30 yards.
On 65 minutes it was 2-0 as Derek Asamoah showed good skill on the left before playing in Dave Edwards, who guided his header over the Rochdale keeper.
A third goal arrived on 78 minutes when Stuart Drummond converted Ben Davies' header before Rochdale came close to a consolation when Chris MacKenzie turned Chris Dagnall's header onto the crossbar.
Wycombe dropped out of the top seven after another disappointing home display in losing 1-0 to Bristol Rovers.
Steve Elliott headed the only goal on 16 minutes as he was left unmarked after the visitors worked a short corner.
It was the first goal Wycombe had conceded at home in over two months and sends Rovers into the weekend's Johnstone's Paint Trophy final against Doncaster in good form.
