Sunday Express - - Your Projects Count - ONE

SWIN­DON boosted their sur­vival hopes and dented FLEET­WOOD’S au­to­matic pro­mo­tion as­pi­ra­tions with a sur­prise 1-0 win at High­bury.

Nicky Ajose scored the de­ci­sive goal with nine min­utes re­main­ing af­ter he ran on to a long ball from Char­lie Colkett to get on the wrong side of Ash­ley Eastham be­fore slot­ting a low fin­ish be­neath goal­keeper Alex Cairns.

The Robins re­main in the rel­e­ga­tion places but are now just three points from safety. Third-placed Fleet­wood are now seven points adrift of BOLTON who drew 0-0 with CH­ESTER­FIELD, who had Jon Nolan sent off in in­jury time. BRAD­FORD ben­e­fited as they won 1-0 at home against WAL­SALL, cour­tesy of a 58th-minute strike from Billy Clarke (right).

SCUN­THORPE’S slump con­tin­ued and they are now back down to fifth af­ter los­ing 3-1 at MILL­WALL.

Goals from Shaun Wil­liams, from the penalty spot, Shane Fer­gu­son and Ai­den O’Brien kept the Lions in the race for the play-offs. Matt Crooks headed a con­so­la­tion for the Iron.

SOUTHEND are the side above Mill­wall in sixth af­ter they over­came OLD­HAM 3-0 at Roots Hall. Ryan Leonard was sent off af­ter 70 min­utes but Southend then bagged three through Nile Ranger, Theo Robin­son and an An­thony Wordsworth penalty.

Billy Bodin hit a brace, one a penalty, as BRIS­TOL ROVERS beat SHREWS­BURY, who had Ryan Yates sent off, 2-0.
