A round up from Mark Birtles …

Stoke City’s Championship status remains in the balance, after they came from behind to draw 1-1 at Hillsborough against Sheffield Wednesday.

Luke Cundle equalised for The Potters 14 minutes from time, and the point leaves Stoke three points clear of the drop zone with a better goal difference of four.

City will start preparations for Saturday now as they welcome Steven Schumacher’s former side Plymouth Argyle to The Bet 365 Stadium.

Port Vale are once again in deep relegation trouble, as allowed a two goal lead to slip at home to Exeter City.

Goals for Ethan Chislett and Baylee Dipepa saw The Vale go into the half time interval 2-0 in the lead.

But four second half goals from Exeter, turned the game totally on its head.

Burton’s win at Stevenage mean The Valiants are now three points from safety, and have a goal difference five worse off than The Brewers, and will look to pull level tomorrow night when Wycombe Wanderers visit Vale Park.

Crewe Alexandra’s stuttering end of season form continued when they were comfortably swept aside by Grimsby Town on Saturday afternoon.

Toby Mullarkey, Curtis Thompson and Denver Hume scored the goals for a depleted Alex side, which included the emergency loan signing of goalkeeper Maz Streyjek from Wycombe Wanderers.

Thanks to other results the Alex remain in 5th and six points clear although Doncaster have played a game less. The Alex welcome newly promoted Wrexham on Saturday in their final home game of the season.

Newcastle Town completed the league double over Cheshire neighbours Nantwich Town with a 1-0 win at The Lyme Valley Stadium.

Jack Van Der Laan scored the goal on the hour, and brings to an end Nantwich’s unbeaten run which had stood at seven games.

Kidsgrove Athletic were hammered 5-0 in Widnes by The City of Liverpool. One down at half time, and two down on 51, Kidsgrove then let three more goals in during injury time, to complete a poor afternoon for the away side.

Champions Leek Town lifted the trophy following a 1-1 draw with Bootle at Harrison Park. Aaron Opoku scoring for Leek to give them the lead.

Hanley Town and Runcorn Linnets played out a 0-0 draw in a game that saw Hanley’s James Askey sent off.

And Stafford Rangers were beaten 1-0 at Atherton Collieries thanks to a Dylan Thompson goal.

In the women’s game – An own goal on 54 minutes proved to be the difference between Stoke City and Burnley.

Port Vale got the three points by default as their opponents weren’t able to fulfil the fixture due to being unable to field a match day squad.

Katie Gibbons and Leah Collins scored a goal each as Crewe Alexandra beat Bury FC.

Newcastle Town were well beaten at home by 5 goals to nil by AFC Telford.

Leek Town’s ladies were beaten 1-0 at Sheffield FC,
