Shrewsbury's hopes of moving back into second place in League Two literally went up in smoke as their match against Port Vale was abandoned after 64 minutes due to an electrical fire.

The Shrews led 1-0 at the time due to a 50th minute goal from James Collins, but when smoke began billowing out of the East Stand at the Greenhous Meadow Stadium, the game was swiftly called off.

Fourth-placed Crawley moved within a point of the automatic promotion places with a 2-1 win at Bradford. Leon Clarke's opener for the visitors was cancelled out by Chris Dagnall, but Gary Alexander fired a 76th minute winner.

Asa Hall's double boosted Oxford's play-off hopes with a 2-0 win at Accrington Stanley, while Gillingham's play-off hopes continued to falter as a Matt Fish own goal handed hosts Burton a 1-0 win which ends the Brewers' recent dismal run.

In the night's other match, Peter Vincenti scored a 43rd minute winner for Aldershot at home to Bristol Rovers which keeps the north Hampshire side's outside hopes of making the play-offs alive.
