Tuesday 18th April 2017 - LEAGUE ONE
Bolton Wanderers v Bury 20:00

Sheffield United's fifth straight win came when Bradford's automatic promotion hopes were dealt a blow with a 3-0 loss. The game was won by United by half with City's defeat seeing them fail to get the points needed to confirm a play-off spot with them down to fifth, four points off Bolton, second, who have a game in hand.

Wimbledon and Peterborough played a an end of season 0-0 draw at Kingsmeadow.

A Bristol Rovers win over Oldham keeps the Pirates, ninth, in with a chance of making it into the top-six. The Latics would have effectively secured League 1 survival with a victory at the Memorial Stadium.

Charlton have basically staved off the threat of relegation following a 3-0 over fellow strugglers Gillingham. The Gills are four points above Port Vale, 21st, but have played a game more.

Fleetwood's 1-0 win over Millwall saw the Cod Army cut the advantage Bolton, second, have to a point - the Trotters do have a game in hand. The Lions remain in the fourth and final play-off spot though, a point above Southend, seventh.

A Northampton lead was lost with the nine-man Cobblers holding on for a 1-1 draw with relegation threatened Shrewsbury. With it now three unbeaten for the Shrews they hold a three points lead over the bottom-four.

Oxford recovered from the Good Friday defeat with a 2-0 win over bottom-four side Port Vale - the gap between Vale and Bury remain at a point following a fourth straight defeat.

Rochdale kept alive their outside hopes of finishing in the top-six with a 2-0 win over already relegated Coventry at Spotland - a first win for bottom-side Sky Blues since relegation was confirmed.

An automatic promotion place is still possible for Scunthorpe after a 3-1 win over Chesterfield, which confirmed their place in the play-offs at least and relegation to League 2 of the visitors. The Irons, fourth, are three points off second-placed Bolton - who do have a game in hand.

Southend, seventh, missed the chance to move above Millwall into the play-offs when beaten 2-1 by MK Dons at Roots Hall. The Shrimpers are a point behind the Lions.

Walsall's first win in seven dented Swindon's survival hopes. This 1-0 defeat was the Robins' first in five as they remain two points from safety.
