In the Championship, two second half goals by Chris O'Grady and others by Liam Lawrence and Dale Jennings proved decisive in the relegation battle at Huish Park. Yeovil Town lost 4-1 to Barnsley in a match crucial to their chances of staying up. Luke Ayling got the Yeovil goal.

In League Two, Exeter City conceded a goal just before half time to Accrington Stanley at St James's Park and thats the way it finished.

At the bottom of the table, Torquay went down 1-0 at Southend.

Plymouth Argyle didn't have a game because scheduled opponents Chesterfield are playing in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final on Sunday.
