Leeds United 2-1 Bristol City
Norwich City 2-2 Newcastle United
Scunthorpe United 0-0 Walsall
Millwall 2-0 Port Vale
Stevenage 2-1 Cheltenham Town
As Brighton draw as well, not too much damage for Newcastle..
Good win by Leeds, but all the other play off promotion rivals win as well..
Sheffield United can only draw as well, but Bolton win to move to within 2 points of the Iron with a game in hand..
Vale drop to just outside the zone as Oldham win & Gillingham draw!
Town also drop to just outside the zone on goal difference only as just about all their rival manage to pick up a point..

Ipswich Town 1-1 Leeds United
Port Vale 1-1 Bristol Rovers
Sheffield United 1-1 Scunthorpe United
Cheltenham Town 2-0 Yeovil Town
Gateshead 3-1 Forest Green Rovers
Macclesfield Town 2-0 Braintree Town
Stockport County 2-1 FC United of Manchester
With 7th. placed Norwich losing the draw is an OK result for Leeds, despite 6th. placed Sheffield Wednesday's win putting them on equal points with Leeds with a game in hand.
Bury's win is enough to drop Vale into the zone despite the draw..
Honors even in the top of the table clash, although the Iron may well consider themselves unlucky not to have claimed all 3 points. They ended the match with 10 men though as Harry Toffolo was sent off for 2 yellows..
A much needed win for Town!! :D Hartlepool are the big losers as they only draw while Town, Notts County & Accrington all win. Newport's resurgence seems to be over & they remain 7 points from safety, while Leyton Orient are just a win away from safety.
With leaders Lincoln away on FA Cup duty 3rd. placed Rovers had a chance to reduce the lead to a point. They failed dismally & it was as good as a result in the league, without playing, as it was in the Cup. Second placed Dag & Red also lost, to leave Lincoln 3 points clear with 2 games in hand.
Good win for Macclesfield keeps them clearly in 9th. place but creeping up on those above - a good series of results could still see them in the play offs, but others will need to falter as well..

21,000 at Brammal Lane for the days biggest game Sheff U v Scunny with im told the Iron selling their allocation of 3000 not bad for i tin pot club !!,,,finished honours even at 1-1 .. gotta take that as the Blades are the richest biggest club in L1 by a mile and pretty sure they will be promoted by the end of the season .. just hoping Scunny are joining them tho its now very tight with Bolton Fleetwood Roachdale Bradford and Millwall etc all in the mix now .

Bloody Billy Sharp scored again an ex scunny player an excellent finisher whos still worshipped by many Iron fans including me .... just wish he would stop scoring against us like he always does.

Well done to Lincoln n Millwall in the FA cup .. hope they get a good draw and make the semis at Wemberlee ...

Port vale in the drop zone ..valiants knees will be knocking !!

Leeds draw to keep in the mix

Bobs Robins get a win ... boy did they need it .

Newcastle United 2-0 Aston Villa
Newcastle get a fairly easy win to return to the top of the table.
Bad news was that their Championship top scorer, Dwight Gayle, limped off after half an hour. Looked like a hamstring issue & he has already lost 6 games this season to that..
Villa looked a bit of a mess once they conceded & lost their main striker, Scott Hogan, as well. No win in 9 for them, 6 points above the zone, but they desperately need some points & confidence..

It was only "fairly easy" for the last half hour Bob. The Toon were still in the dressing room for the first 30mins. They couldn't put 3 passes together. Yedlin finally got to the by line at about his sixth or seventh attempt and won a corner which was allowed to bobble about in the pen area until Gouff put it in from 1 yard out. Up till then it had been all Villa.
What pleased most Newcastle fans was that it was Henry Lansbury that scored the own goal as he had been the main cause of TWO Newcastle players wrongly being sent off at Forest earlier in the year .... he had been bood every time he touched the ball all night and got a massive cheer when he was announced as the OG scorer #-o :fryingpan:

If you take the league position of the opponents in each remaining game this season and calculate their AVERAGE league position it would appear that BRIGHTON have the easiest "run in " of the top 6 in the Championship.

BRIGHTON ave for opponent in all matches 14.2 (home 13.5 away 15.0)
READING ave 12.6 (h 15.6 a 10.3)
HUDDERSFIELD 12.4 (h9.8 a 15.3)
SHEFF WED 11.5 (h9.7 a14.0)
LEEDS 11.1 (h7.0 a 14.5)
NEWCASTLE 10.6 (h13.5 a 7.7)

Leeds score of 7.0 for home matches is over 6 games 6th,16th,2nd,10th,1st,7th)
Newcastles score of 7.7 for away matches is over 7 games 2nd,3rd,4th,14th,6th.13th,12th

so all those STILL saying its a two horse race should take note. I'd certainly prefer to play my hardest opponents at home like Leeds, Sheff Wed and Huddersfield than I would away like Reading and Newcastle.

Depends which way you look at it Statts. I am still in the UK and, here, Leeds fans at least are only praying for the 5 or 6 wins that will take us into a play off position. With that in mind, a few easy home games would be better, particularly if the constant rumours about the fitness of our only striker are true.

I don't think Reading can string enough wins together and expect Huddersfield's bubble to burst as they start to feel the weight of expectation. That leaves Sheff W as the only team, in my opinion, capable of stringing enough results together to close the gap - Saturdays Leeds v Sheff W game will hopefully dent their ambitions though.

Newcastle weren't good last night but, like Brighton, they have an experienced team and management. I still think these 2 will romp clear.

Last night in the Conference......Eastleigh 0 Macclesfield 1

Macc now just 3 points off a play off place.Lincoln,Dagenham & Redbridge,Tranmere Rovers and Forest Green look to be in a very strong position for the automatic promotion/play off places.
It looks like there is just 1 play off place up for grabs between Dover,Gateshead,Aldershot,Barrow and Macclesfield.
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.
