Round-up: Final Day

6 May 2018

Morecambe clinched survival on the final day of the League Two season, securing the point they needed in a goalless draw at Coventry City.

Barnet put three past relegated Chesterfield without reply, but their victory was in vain following the Shrimps’ stalemate at the Ricoh Arena.

That point suited the Sky Blues too, confirming their place in the Play-Offs where they’ll be joined by Lincoln City, who drew 1-1 at home to Yeovil Town. Those scorelines put paid to Mansfield Town’s hopes of a top-seven finish, although the Stags could only share the spoils with Crawley Town.

Champions Accrington Stanley bowed out of the division with a 3-0 loss at Swindon Town, where Marc Richards, Keshi Anderson and Paul Mullin found the net. Swindon’s James Dunne and Stanley’s Jimmy Dunne both saw red in an incident late on.

Wycombe Wanderers celebrated their promotion with a 1-0 win over Stevenage, Matt Bloomfield grabbing the winner at Adams Park. Runners-up Luton Town drew 0-0 at Notts County, who finish the season in fifth position.

Exeter City are the other side who will be competing in the Play-Offs, and they warmed up for the post-season with a 1-0 win over Colchester United. Robbie Simpson netted the solitary goal.

JJ Hooper hit a hat-trick as Grimsby Town finished the season with a flourish, easing to a 3-0 win at Forest Green Rovers, and there were goals galore at Cambridge United who put five past Port Vale. David Amoo, Harrison Dunk, Brad Halliday, Barry Corr and Billy Waters all scored on a memorable afternoon for the U’s.

Elsewhere, Crewe Alexandra defeated Cheltenham Town 2-1, after fielding a homegrown XI — a team made up entirely of the club’s academy graduates, while Keith Curle’s final game in charge of Carlisle United was a 1-1 draw against Newport County.
