Two Review - March 31st
The race for automatic promotion was made that bit tighter as Exeter City squeaked past Port Vale at St James's Park when Prosser put past his own keeper in the 29th minute to give the home side a vital 3-points. The win means that there is now a cluster of 5 clubs to within a point of each other. Exeter City 5th, Port Vale 18th.
Chesterfield had to settle for a point against Aldershot Town at The Recreation Ground. Lester had given the Spirites a 7th minute lead, but it wasn't enough as Robinson levelled 7 minutes after the break. The point means that Chesterfield are within spitting distance of the play-offs. Aldershot Town 15th, Chesterfield 9th.
Lincoln City, with just 6 home wins to their name all season have probably left it too late to claim a play-off place, even though they managed to beat Macclesfield by a single goal at Sincil Bank. Patulea scored the only goal of the game in the 27th minute to secure the win. Lincoln City 12th, Macclesfield 19th.
It was a game they simply had to win, but Luton Town failed to pick up any points against Rotherham United at Kenilworth Road. The Millers 4-2 away win came courtesy of opening goals from Reid and Houghton in the 11th and 38th minutes, before Martin pulled one back for the home side in the 42nd minute. Harrison restored the Millers' 2-goal advantage in the 53rd minute with Hall pulling one back for the Hatters in the 70th minute. An all-important equaliser was not to be after Hudson ensured that the points were heading back up the M1 with an 87th minute strike, leaving Luton 11 points adrift of safety, no games in hand, and 6 left to play. Luton Town 24th, Rotherham United 14th.
