Luton clinched the Coca-Cola League One championship after their 2-1 win against Wrexham at the Racecourse.

Andy Holt had put the hosts in front after 31 minutes but levelled just after the break when Curtis Davies rose unchallenged from a corner to head home. Chris Coyne scored the winner six minutes later to give Mike Newell's side the points and the championship.

The Hatters clinched the title after Hull's 3-0 defeat to Walsall at the Bescot, thanks to a Julian Joachim hat-trick. The veteran striker opened the scoring 11 minutes before the break and doubled the lead just after the interval. The Saddlers' relegation fears were eased as Joachim completed his treble midway through the second half. Hull have already had promotion confirmed but are now out of the title race.

Tranmere missed the chance to secure a play-off place after a 2-1 defeat against Swindon at the County Ground. Ryan Taylor had opened the scoring for the visitors after 20 minutes but a second-half brace by Grant Smith gave the Robins the points.

Peterborough will be playing League Two football next season, despite a 1-0 win against Bournemouth at Dean Court. Calum Willock scored the winner for Posh with a first-time finish from Curtis Woodhouse's cross - but they still go down.

Torquay boosted their survival hopes after a 2-1 win against Oldham at Boundary Park. Veteran David Eyres scored the opener for the Latics but Matt Hockley and Ade Akinfenwa scored either side of half-time to hand victory to the Gulls.

MK Dons look set to join Peterborough and Stockport in League Two, losing to 2-1 to Bristol City after a Leroy Lita double at the National Hockey Stadium. Izale McLeod opened the scoring to give the hosts the lead but England Under-21 striker Lita netted a brace, which gives his side hope of reaching the play-offs.

Promotion-hopefuls Brentford slipped out of the play-off places after a 1-0 defeat to Huddersfield at Griffin Park, with Pawel Abbott scoring the only goal of the game after 26 minutes.

Doncaster still have an outside chance of reaching the play-offs after their 2-0 win against Hartlepool at Belle Vue. Pools, who should still finish in the top six, fell behind just before the hour mark when Ricky Ravenhill scored, and Leo Fortune-West wrapped up the win late on.

Port Vale ensured safety after a 5-0 win against Barnsley at Vale Park. Chris Birchall started the rout, and Billy Paynter and Tony Dinning scored twice each to wrap up a comprehensive win.

Sheffield Wednesday could not muster a goal against relegated side Stockport, but they remain in the play-off places.

Blackpool beat Chesterfield 1-0 at Bloomfield Road, with Simon Grayson netting the winner after 18 minutes.

Colchester and Bradford drew 0-0 in a disappointing clash at Layer Road.
