YEOVIL threw away a two-goal lead as they were relegated to the National League after a 2-2 draw at Northampton on a dramatic day at the foot of Sky Bet League Two.

The Glovers looked on course to give their survival bid a boost after goals from Tristan Abrahams and Jake Gray in the opening 24 minutes put them in control.

However, Omar Sowunmi headed into his own net four minutes after half-time and Daniel Powell pulled the Cobblers level six minutes later.

Notts County started the day behind Yeovil but gave themselves a huge lifeline with a 2-1 win at home to Grimsby - a Craig Mackail-Smith effort and a Harry Clifton own goal earning them the three points.

However, the Magpies remain two points adrift of 22nd-placed Macclesfield, who moved a step closer to preserving their English Football League status thanks to a 66th-minute David Fitzpatrick goal in a 1-0 win at Port Vale that relegated the Glovers, who are now helplessly four points from safety with a single fixture left to play.

Forest Green were on their way to gaining ground in the race for automatic promotion until a late collapse in their match at Crewe.

Rovers led 3-2 with three minutes remaining but conceded twice before the final whistle to lose 4-3, meaning they will now likely have to settle for a play-off berth.

The result was a let-off for Mansfield and MK Dons, who both suffered defeats - the Dons losing 2-0 at Colchester and the Stags beaten 2-1 at home by Stevenage.

Tranmere's home clash with Bury was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch and will now be played on Tuesday. A win for the Shakers will secure their promotion to League One.

Colchester's victory keeps the Essex side in the chase for a play-off berth currently occupied by seventh-placed Exeter, who still hold a two-point advantage over the chasing pack thanks to a 1-0 win against Oldham.

Carlisle, Stevenage and Newport are all level on points with the U's in a congested race for the end-of-season knockout.

The Cumbrians were 4-2 winners against Crawley, while Newport beat champions Lincoln 1-0 and have a game in hand over the four teams above them.

Elsewhere, Morecambe were 2-1 winners at Cambridge and Cheltenham beat Swindon 3-2.
