Rochdale managed to get back in to the automatic promotion places with an emphatic 3-0 win over Bradford City at Spotland. McArdle got the scoring under way in the 49th minute. Then Le Fondre netted a brace of penalties in the 56th and 74th minutes. Rochdale 3rd, Bradford City 6th.

Gillingham left it very late to claim the points against Darlington at Priestfield. Jackson scored the only goal of the game, from the penalty spot, in the 94th minute. Gillingham 5th, Darlington 13th.

Exeter City saw their unbeaten run come to an abrupt end at St James's Park against AFC Bournemouth, who in turn, climbed out of the drop zone again.

Chesterfield edged Grimsby Town as the Mariners tried to climb back out of the drop zone at Saltergate. Talbot gave the Spirites a 55th minute lead.

Luton Town still have a glimour of hope of avoiding the drop to the Conference, but they do need to win all of their remaining matches to do so.

Rotherham United compounded relegation fears for Chester City with a thumping 5-1 win at the Deva Stadium. Ellison have City a 14th minute lead, but that's as good as it got for the home side as the Millers then ran riot. Reid levelled from the penalty spot in the 26th minute, with Cummins and Broughton giving the visitors the lead in the 38th and first half stoppage time. Reid completed his hat trick with goals in the 50th and 72nd minutes. Chester City 22nd, Rotherham United 17th.
