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.

Confidence is high at Plymouth Argyle. The Pilgrims beat league leaders Chesterfield in midweek to move into the League Two play-off places. Today they travel to mid-table Accrington Stanley.

And every point matters for Exeter and Torquay now. The Grecians are just three points above the teams immediately below them in the League Two relegation zone. So they desperately need to hold their nerve and get three points at home to Fleetwood.

The same goes for Torquay, who host Newport at Plainmoor.

In the Championship, Yeovil host Bolton at Huish Park, knowing that victory could lift them clear of the relegation zone.
