Shrewsbury’s draw at Coventry yesterday has confirmed their survival. Three from Wycombe, Southend, Plymouth, Walsall, Scunthorpe, and ourselves will go down on Saturday. Wycombe are very long shots given goal difference, so realistically it is three from five.
Plymouth have sacked manager Derek Adams. Kevin Nancekivell will take charge for their game with Scunthorpe on Saturday. In a statement, the Devon club said: “The club would like to place on record its sincere gratitude to Derek, not only for his hard work and dedication in his management of the team, but also for his wider input into the club during four challenging and often exciting seasons.”
The under-18s won their penultimate game of the season on Saturday. They won 2-1 at Stevenage, with Jack Madelin and Finlay McNab getting the goals. They go into the final game of the season with a chance to win their league.

ON THIS DAY – 1978. The Dons finished their first season in the Football League with a 3-2 defeat at Barnsley. It had been a season of change, with Allen Batsford resigning mid-campaign after a terrible run. Dario Gradi stepped up from Assistant Manager and appointed “Harry” Bassett as his assistant, and the Dons had a hugely successful second half of the season, managing 10 wins from 31, finishing relatively comfortably in 13th place.
