League Two round-up: Exeter go back to the top

Exeter are the new leaders of League Two after they beat Carlisle and Notts County drew 1-1 with Forest Green.

After defeat by Mansfield last weekend, County looked poised for another shock loss against the team who started the day bottom of the table. Omar Bugiel put Forest Green ahead on the half-hour mark but Robert Milsom salvaged a point for County deep into stoppage time.

Exeter moved two points ahead of County after coming out on top of another low-scoring game, with Pierce Sweeney earning the Grecians a 1-0 victory with a 49th-minute goal.
