Team of the week
Martin Rice - Torquay United
The goalkeeper was making his Football League debut aged 26 and, in the absence of the Gulls' first-choice stopper Michael Poke, celebrated with a clean sheet in the 0-0 draw against Oxford.
Billy Jones - Cheltenham
League Two's joint leading assist maker causes problems with his set-piece deliveries - and it was his corner which led to the Robins' winner against Burton. He also impressed at the other end as Cheltenham kept their fourth straight clean sheet.
Femi Ilesanmi - Dagenham and Redbridge
Marauding left-back Ilesanmi, provided two assists in Dagenham's thumping home win against Rotherham. But the man-of-the-match didn't forget his defensive responsibilities in the 5-0 win either - helping the Daggers keep only their third clean sheet of the season.
Joe Davis - Port Vale
The 19-year-old defender has only made 13 Football League appearances, but is producing some mature displays at the heart of the Vale defence. He helped the second-placed side blunt Southend's attack in a 0-0 stalemate at Roots Hall.
Stephen Darby - Bradford City
Former Liverpool defender Darby has been an assured presence in the Bantams' defence this season and was impressive again in their 2-0 triumph at Aldershot.
Andrew Fleming - Morecambe
Fleming was an instrumental figure as the Shrimps beat Barnet 4-1 to record their biggest home win of the season. The midfielder's neat finish from a tight angle put them 2-0 ahead.
Luke Howell - Dagenham and Redbridge
The all-action midfielder bagged twice in his side's 5-0 rout of Rotherham to take his goal tally to an impressive six for the season.
Russell Penn - Cheltenham
Another energetic display from the Robins midfielder helped the third-placed side earn a narrow 1-0 win over his former club Burton. Penn's performance earned the plaudits - and man-of-the-match vote - from his boss Mark Yates.
Dwight Gayle - Dagenham and Redbridge
Former Arsenal trainee Gayle scored the opener to set the Daggers on the way to a 5-0 victory over Rotherham. And he crowned a five-star display by sweeping in the final goal of a comfortable afternoon.
Adebayo Akinfenwa - Northampton
Powerful striker Akinfenwa netted his first professional hat-trick to help the Cobblers to a 4-2 win at Accrington Stanley. He has scored 10 goals this season - with boss Aidy Boothroyd admitting he can play at a higher level.
Nahki Wells -Bradford City
The Bermudian continued his fine form to fire promotion-chasing Bradford to a 2-0 win at Aldershot. His first-half double, taking his tally to 12 for the season, moved the Bantams up to fourth.
