Rochdale were relegated from League One after losing 2-1 at home to Doncaster Rovers. A goal in each half from Taylor Roberts put the visitors two up and although Matt Done pulled one back with seven minutes remaining, Dale couldn’t find an equaliser and their drop to League Two was confirmed.

Wigan Athletic were beaten 3-1 by Hull City, who claimed the League One title with the win. Keane Lewis-Potter and George Honeyman scored for Hull either side of a goal from Joe Dodoo in a frantic period of three goals in six minutes. Josh Magennis secured the win for Hull in the second half.

Despite defeat at the KCOM Stadium, Wigan’s survival was confirmed as defeat for Northampton at home to Blackpool meant they were relegated alongside Rochdale, Shrewsbury and Bristol Rovers.

Bolton Wanderers missed the chance to secure automatic promotion from League Two after a dramatic defeat at home to Exeter City. Gethin Jones had given Bolton the lead they needed, but Randell Williams levelled early in the second half before the visitors snatched victory thanks to a 96th minute goal from Pierce Sweeney. Bolton will still be promoted on the final day of the season if they win at Crawley. 

Salford City’s play-off hopes are out of their hands following a 1-0 defeat to Colchester, who secured their survival with the win. Josh Bohui gave Colchester the win with the first league goal of his career. Salford finished the game with nine men after DiShon Bernard and Ashley Hunter were both sent off.

In order to finish in the play-off places, Salford must beat Leyton Orient on the final day and hope Forest Green and Exeter drop points against Oldham and Barrow. Oldham’s last away game of the season saw them beaten 4-1 by Mansfield.

Manchester City are one win away from the Premier League title after goals from Sergio Aguero and Ferran Torres gave them a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace. They will secure the title if they beat Chelsea on Saturday. Manchester United’s home clash with Liverpool on Sunday was postponed following fan protests against the club’s owners the Glazers.

Manchester City’s Women ensured the Women’s Super League title race will go to the final day after a comfortable 4-0 win over struggling Birmingham City. Chloe Kelly scored a first half brace, while Esme Morgan and Sam Mewis scored late.

The win takes City top of the table, although they have played a game more than Chelsea who will retain the title if they win both of their final two games.

Manchester United edged past Bristol City 1-0 thanks to a Yana Daniels own goal. United would need an unlikely 23-goal swing on the final day to finish in a Champions League place.
