Today's football round-up

No wins for any of our sides today.

Yeovil Town's final game in the Championship ended with a heavy 4-1 defeat to Middlesbrough at Huish Park. James Hayter scored for the Glovers.

In League One, Bristol City drew 1-1 at Crawley. Jamie Proctor gave the home side a first half lead, but Simon Gillett equalised for City just after the hour mark. Steve Cotterill's men finish the season in 12th place.

Former Cheltenham striker Wes Thomas scored both goals for Rotherham as Swindon Town lost 2-1 at the County Ground. Town pulled a goal back through Michael Smith's penalty. Mark Cooper's men finish 8th in the table.

In League Two, Bristol Rovers have been relegated from the Football League after losing at home to Mansfield. With relegation rivals Wycombe and Northampton both winning, it means Rovers drop into the Conference along with Torquay United.

Cheltenham were leading twice against Dagenham and Redbridge after first half goals from Steve Elliott and Matt Richards, but ended up losing 3-2. Town finish the season in 17th place.

Tindall enjoys Kingsholm farewell

Mike Tindall is poised to announce his retirement from rugby union.

The 35-year-old, 75-times capped centre tweeted, after his side's 38-30 home Aviva Premiership victory over London Irish:

When asked about the tweet outside the changing rooms, Tindall, who is married to the Princess Royal's daughter Zara Phillips, said: "I don't want to say anything now - I will do it at some point next week.

"There will be plenty of time next week (to speak with the media)."

Tindall said he would make himself available for selection for Gloucester's final match of the season away at local rivals Worcester but wanted to say goodbye to the club's fans at the last match of the campaign at Kingsholm.



Bristol Rovers beat Wycombe in 'six-pointer'

Bristol Rovers' battle to stay in the Football League has received a huge boost after they beat relegation rivals Wycombe 2-1.

Lee Brown gave Rovers an 11th minute lead at Adams Park. Matt McClure equalised for the hosts 10 minutes later.

But 14 minutes from time, David Clarkson's strike earned three vital points.

The win lifts Rovers up to 21st in the table. And with second-from-bottom Northampton winning, it sends Wycombe into the bottom two along with Torquay - who were relegated today.

Elsewhere in League Two, already safe Cheltenham lost 2-0 at Rochdale, who are promoted to League One.

Swindon's hopes of reaching the League One play-offs are over, after a 2-0 defeat at relegation-threatened Notts County. Town also had Nathan Thompson sent off in injury time.

And Bristol City drew 0-0 with Crewe at Ashton Gate.
