LEAGUE TWO

  • CHELTENHAM TOWN 1 - 0 GILLINGHAM

Cheltenham Town secured their place in the League Two play-offs after a 1-0 win over already promoted Gillingham.

The Gills only needed a draw to be crowned champions, but Michael Hector's 67th minute header from Billy Jones' corner sealed the three points for the Robins.

Mark Yates' men move up to fourth in the table, two points behind Burton who occupy the final automatic promotion spot, after an injury time winner over Plymouth today.

Bristol Rovers survived a few scares in a goal-less draw at fellow mid-table side Southend.

The Pirates had goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall to thank for the point after an outstanding double save. He dived to his right to keep out a shot from Freddy Eastwood, before reacting to the follow up effort from Britt Assombolonga.

Tom Parkes headed just wide for Rovers in the last ten minutes, and the defender also had a shot blocked by the Shrimpers defence.

LEAGUE ONE

Yeovil Town confirmed their place in the League One play-offs with a 2-0 win at Stevenage.

Sam Foley gave the Glovers the lead eight minutes into the second half. James Hayter unselfishly laid the ball back for Foley to curl the ball into the top corner of the net.

Hayter doubled the advantage ten minutes from the end. Foley repaid the striker by setting him up for a goal which went in off the crossbar.

Yeovil played the last moments of the match with ten men after Dan Burn was dismissed for a second bookable offence.

Gary Johnson's men are fourth in the table, five points away from the automatic promotion places with three games remaining.

Swindon Town slipped to their second straight defeat after losing 2-0 at promotion rivals Sheffield United.

United, who sacked former Town boss Danny Wilson in the week, took the lead when Chris Porter headed in Tony McMahon's free-kick shortly before half-time.

McMahon then crossed for Dave Kitson who headed the second ten minutes from time.

James Collins came closest for Town, but his shot was tipped over by goalkeeper George Long.

Kevin MacDonald's side occupy the final play-off place - five points behind the Blades, and one point ahead of Walsall and Leyton Orient.

CHAMPIONSHIP

Bristol City are a step closer to relegation after a 2-1 home defeat to Bolton.

Liam Fontaine's own goal in the second minute put the visitors ahead. And although Steven Davies equalised early in the second half from Albert Adomah's cross, Craig Davies scored the winner from the penalty spot after Matthew Bates was judged to have fouled David Ngog in the area.

Sean O'Driscoll's men are 10 points adrift at the foot of the table with four games left.
