Yeovil remain on track for promotion and the Coca-Cola League Two title - but both issues will be settled on the final day of the season.

The Glovers' 1-0 win over title rivals Southend gives Gary Johnson's side a one-point margin over S#horpe going into next Saturday's last round of games.

However in theory Yeovil could still miss out on automatic promotion, as Southend - who slipped to third with Saturday's defeat - can still catch them, and so can fourth-placed Swansea. Former Everton striker Phil Jevons fired Yeovil's winner in the 83rd minute of Saturday's Roots Hall tussle, a match watched by 11,735.

S#horpe climbed to second with their 4-0 thrashing of Bristol Rovers, Steve Torpey heading two goals in the opening quarter of an hour and Paul Hayes lobbing in the third less than a minute into the second half. Rovers had Craig Disley sent off before Cleveland Taylor headed S#horpe's fourth in the 69th minute at Glanford Park.

Adrian Forbes struck the only goal after eight minutes as Swansea beat Shrewsbury at the Vetch Field. The Swans are fourth, and could yet overtake Yeovil next week given a favourable sequence of results.

Macclesfield's fading hopes of climbing into the top three were extinguished by a 3-0 defeat at Cheltenham. David Morley's own goal and two close-range finishes from Damian Spencer after half-time earned mid-table Cheltenham the win.

The Quakers dropped out of the play-off zone, falling to eighth, as Northampton surged past them and into seventh after Andy Kirk fired both goals in their 2-0 win at Chester.

Kidderminster's relegation, all but certain before kick-off due to a dreadful goal difference, was confirmed by a 4-1 home defeat against Grimsby. Michael Reddy, once of Sunderland, netted twice for the Mariners, while Robert Jones and Andy Parkinson were also on target, with Gary Birch replying in vain for Harriers.

Rushden and Diamonds, whose safety was already effectively secure barring freak results, lost 1-0 at home to Cambridge but could celebrate the certain knowledge that another season in League Two awaits them. Tesfaye Bramble's penalty just before the half-hour mark gave maximum points to already relegated Cambridge.

Games involving neither the title race nor relegation issues saw Mansfield beat Boston 3-2, Notts County fall to a 1-0 defeat at home against Bury, Rochdale crush Oxford 5-1 and Wycombe edge Leyton Orient 3-2.
