Leeds have a very satisfactory weekend, but possibly the 9 points they need to overall Brighton with only 8 games remaining is just too much.
After my big build up, Fulham have a stinker at home against Wolves & are still a point away from Sheffield.
The Iron were leading at half time but fall to a very late Oxford goal. Bradford win to go into 4th, Fleetwood can only draw so a winning Bolton grab second spot.
Town were still at the races when the visitors scored almost from the kick off. Luckily both Newport & Leyton Orient take heavy beatings. It looks like they may remain in the league due to the incompetency of 2 others rather than any personal skill on display!!
Any easy day out for Rovers as they go joint on points with Lincoln City, the year's near cup winning specialists do have 3 games in hand though..FA Trophy
LINCOLN CITY 1-1 YORK CITY AET (AGG 2-3)
Tranmere Rovers 0-1 Macclesfield Town (Agg 1-2)
I think everyone excep Zid will be surprised that the finalists for the Trophy will be York against the Silkmen. Both were the underdogs going into the second legs & both away from home. York won the game with a penalty in the 105th. minutes - there is no 'away goals' rule in the Trophy. The other tie was a very tight affair with few chances either way. Macclesfield clinched the game with a strike in the second half to make their way to Wembley.
