Kuffour drives home points for Torquay

Jo Kuffour's 84th-minute goal handed Torquay United their first home win of the season by beatingHuddersfield Town 2-1. Junior Mendes had given the visitors the lead in the 39th minute, but Kevin Hill netted the equaliser four minutes after the interval before Kuffour's winner.

However, Torquay's win was only sufficient to move them up one place as Walsall were 2-1 victors at home to Colchester United. After 70 goalless minutes, Colchester's Richard Garcia scored the opening goal, but the lead lasted just three minutes before defender Julian Bennett equalised. Six minutes from time, Neil Emblen's header secured the three points.

Lowly Cambridge United shocked League Two high-flyers Bristol Rovers with a 1-0 victory at the Abbey Stadium. That result, combined with Leyton Orient's 1-1 draw at home to Bury, was enough to lift Orient above Rovers and into fourth place.

John Turner's close-range goal a minute after half-time was enough to give Cambridge only their second victory of the season and in so doing denied the Pirates the chance to go third. Orient were leading for more than an hour after Lee Steele's ninth-minute goal but Chris Porter's header 15 minutes from time earned the Shakers a point.

Lincoln moved themselves away from the foot of the table with a convincing 3-0 victory over bottom side Kidderminster. Simon Yeo gave the home team the lead two minutes before the break, and Kevin Sandwith's first goal for the Imps after 58 minutes and another from Gary Taylor-Fletcher 16 minutes later made sure of Lincoln's first home win of the season.
