  1. And so we face the final curtain..

    And breathe. The regular season is now over in Leagues One and Two. Now we move on to the play-offs.

    There was drama at either end in both divisions today, with Morecambe sealing their English Football League status at the expense of Barnet, whose three-season stay in League Two came to an end.

    Barnet fans

    Wigan lifted the League One title with their victory at Doncaster, while Charlton wrapped up the final play-off spot.

    Meanwhile, the biggest story of the day was Joe Thompson firing Rochdale to safety in League One, as Oldham and Northampton joined MK Dons and Bury in relegation to League Two.

    On Sunday, we've got more final day action, this time in the Championship. We'll be bringing you all the action tomorrow.

    For now, thank you for joining us.

  2. Reaction - 'I'm absolutely made up'

    FT: Coventry 0-0 Morecambe

    Jim Bentley

    Morecambe's goalless draw against Coventry means the Shrimps retained their League Two status for next season.

    Jim Bentley's side knew a win at the Ricoh Arena would keep them safe, while a draw would also be enough provided Barnet didn't beat Chesterfield by a seven-goal margin. The Bees managed three.

    Bentley said: "Everyone knows how I feel about the club, and we let ourselves down last week [with defeat at home to Barnet].

    "It’s been in our hands and we got the job done today so I’m absolutely made up for everyone associated with the club.

    "I said last week about Wembley [promotion via the 2007 Conference play-off final] being my highlight. This is definitely my second highlight since I’ve been at the club."

  3. Post update

    Let's have the final word of the day from Morecambe manager Jim Bentley...

  4. Reaction - 'We'll need to be better in the play-offs'

    FT: Lincoln 1-1 Yeovil

    Danny Cowley

    Lincoln City boss Danny Cowley has admitted the Imps will need to up their game in the League Two play-offs before they take on Exeter in the semi-finals.

    The Imps booked their top-seven spot with a tense 1-1 draw against Yeovil.

    In the end, Lincoln could have afforded to lose as Mansfield were held at home by Crawley - but Cowley was still concerned by their first-half performance.

    “We’ll need to be a lot better than we were today,” conceded Cowley. “We were very tentative and our execution in the first half was very poor.

    “We were taking loads of risks in our defending third but none in their defending third. We rectified a few things at half-time and we found a way.”

  5. Reaction - 'It was a rubbish game'

    FT: Coventry 0-0 Morecambe

    Mark Robins

    A goalless draw against Morecambe gave Coventry City the point the point they needed to secure a League Two play-off place.

    The Sky Blues, relegated from the third tier last season, will play Notts County in their play-off semi-final.

    "It was a rubbish game, but in fairness it was all we expected," said Coventry boss Mark Robins. "I'm pleased that we've managed to do the first part of it - now we've got to learn from the experiences we've had and that we're just about to undertake.

    "It's all good experience in terms of the building blocks, and the young players in the team have got to take it in their stride. It's how people handle the experience of the play-offs.

    "I don't think there's any need to go into the analytical side of things [from today's game] - it is what it is. I think there were a few tired legs and minds out there after the end of a long season."

  7. Post update

    Before we shut up shop for today, let's have a quick reminder of what happened in League Two earlier and grab a bit more reaction...

  8. 'Magnificent' Dale squad hailed by boss Hill

    FT: Rochdale 1-0 Charlton - Dale survive

    Keith Hill

    Rochdale manager Keith Hill tells Sky Sports:

    "It means a lot.

    "I said I'd never as a manager celebrate surviving relegation, but the way we've done it, we came up with a plan 16 games ago and we've executed it.

    "I'm really pleased about it, it's for all the honest people, who work at this football club, the supporters and the players - they've been magnificent.

    "It's been a 60-game season and I'd like to thank all the players for what they've done this season."

    Amazing scenes at Spotland as the crowd spill onto the pitch. Rochdale have done it and they are staying in League One at the expense of local rivals Oldham.

    FT: Rochdale 1-0 Charlton

    Oldham Athletic's 2-2 draw at Northampton Town means both of those sides are relegated to League Two and Rochdale remain in League One!

    What a story it's been for Keith Hill's side, who were 11 points adrift of safety in February. They've held Tottenham Hotspur to a draw in the FA Cup and set up a Wembley replay and now they've gone against the odds to stay up!

    Joe Thompson, who has recovered from cancer twice and came back earlier this season, scored the goal that has kept them in the division.

    What a victory, what a story!


    FT: Northampton 2-2 Oldham

    Oldham can't find a late winner and they are relegated to League Two.

    Northampton's fate is also sealed, although they needed a hatful of goals today to have a sniff of staying up.

    There will be celebrations elsewhere in Greater Manchester - Rochdale have pulled off a miracle to survive.

    Oldham relegated

    Northampton Town 2-2 Oldham Athletic

    We are well into five minutes of stoppage time at Sixfields.

    Oldham need to find a late winner if they are to stay in League One after Rochdale's 1-0 win over Charlton.


    Gillingham 5-2 Plymouth Argyle

    A hat-trick from Tom Eaves and singles from Josh Parker and Elliott List sees Gillingham end the season on a high and end any outside chances Plymouth had of making the play-offs.


    Rochdale 1-0 Charlton

    It's all over at Spotland and Rochdale have beaten Charlton.

    But Dale's League One status rests on the full time result between Northampton and Oldham.

    There are six minutes still to play at Sixfields and it's 2-2, which means Oldham are down as it stands and Rochdale are staying up.


    Blackburn Rovers 2-1 Oxford United

    Goals from Darragh Lenihan and Jack Payne in each half ensure Blackburn end the season with a win and end the season in second place.


    FT: Doncaster 0-1 Wigan

    It's all over at the Keepmoat and Wigan Athletic are League One champions for the second time in three seasons.

    A tremendous campaign for Paul Cook's side is capped off with a victory at Doncaster Rovers courtesy of Will Grigg's second-half goal.

    Wigan champions
  18. GOAL: Gillingham 5-2 Plymouth Argyle

    Elliott List (90 mins)

    Gillingham end the season with a five-star performance - Elliott List gets his second goal in as many games - the only two he's ever scored.

    He chases onto a long ball and finishes well from a tight angle.

  19. Post update

    Northampton Town 2-2 Oldham Athletic

    Matt Grimes almost breaks every heart in Oldham - the Northampton Town midfielder's 30-yard free kick needs an excellent save from Johny Placide.

    Both sides still heading to League Two as it stands......

  20. Elsewhere...

    This is a nice touch on what has been a miserable season for bottom side Bury.

    George Miller has just scored to make it 2-2 at AFC Wimbledon. The Shakers were 2-0 down.

    Not too much to report elsewhere.
