League Two promotion battle (2 to go)

League Two promotion battle (2 to go)


Automatic promotion is back in the Chairboys' hands after they beat Crewe while Shrewsbury drew with Accrington in the latest round of results.

Bury, Wycombe, Stevenage and Gillingham all won.

Shrewsbury, Accrington, and Torquay all drew.

Chesterfield lost.

Bury are now promoted along with the Spireites.

Only two points separate the two remaining title contenders, and they both face a difficult run-in against fellow promotion hopefuls.

The Shakers have won six games in a row and could take the title on goal difference if they win their next two and the Spireites draw one of theirs.

Wycombe can win automatic promotion next Saturday if they win at Bury and Shrewsbury lose at Cheltenham. Any other combination of results means things will be settled on the final day of the season.

The Chairboys are now guaranteed a place in the play-offs and one more point would ensure they play the second-leg at Adams Park.

The Shrews are Wycombe's main rivals for third spot, but still need another point to be guaranteed a place in the play-offs.

One more win for either Wycombe or Shrewsbury would be enough to kill-off Accrington's slim chance of a top-three spot.

One more point for Wycombe would put paid to Stevenage and Gillingham's automatic promotion challenge.

Torquay can no longer win automatic promotion.
