|RESULTS IN FULL|
After confirming their promotion to the Premier League in midweek, it only took a 1-1 draw against Burnley for Cardiff City to clinch their first ever Championship title. The champions had the lead though Craig Conway’s first-half strike until David Edgar levelled for the home side in the 90th minute.
Wolves looked to be pulling themselves out of the relegation zone until Tottenham loanee Jonathan Obika struck a 90th-minute winner for Charlton. But fellow relegation-scrappers Blackburn conceded four second-half goals away to Watford, and Peterborough lost to Derby, leaving the battle at the bottom wide open.
Nottingham Forest lost ground in their push for a place in the play-offs, losing 3-0 against Huddersfield thanks to a double from Jermaine Beckford either side of a clinical finish from James Vaughan. The result drags the Terriers three points clear of the drop.
Brighton demolished Blackpool 6-1 to solidify their position in the play-off spots, while Crystal Palace and Leicester, in fifth and seventh position respectively, played out an entertaining 2-2 draw at Selhurst Park. The Eagles twice forfeited the lead to slip out of the top seven as Bolton capitalised with a win over Middlesbrough.

At the top of the table, Doncaster suffered a shock defeat against Notts County, allowing Bournemouth to leapfrog them into first place in the table following their win over Carlisle.
Brentford's late 1-1 draw with Hartlepool means Bournemouth have secured promotion to the Championship.
Sheffield United, Swindon and Yeovil are all guaranteed a place in the play-offs, though the Blades were unexpectedly beaten 3-0 by Portsmouth – who have been handed a 10-point deduction – which ended their slim hopes of automatic promotion.
Scunthrope’s win over MK Dons, courtesy of a solitary Karl Hawley strike, keeps their survival hopes just about alive. The Iron are three points behind Colchester after the U’s 0-0 draw with Shrewsbury, and will need to win by a three-goal margin - and hope their relegation rivals lose - in order to stay up.

Barnet celebrated their last ever match at Underhill with a victory, a result that pulls them out of the relegation zone by just a single point. Jake Hyde had given the Bees the lead over mid-table Wycombe, before goalkeeper Graham Stack saved a 94th-minute penalty to preserve all three points.
There were mixed feelings at the Priestfield Stadium, where Gillingham survived a second-half comeback from Wimbledon to secure the point they needed to claim the League Two title – their first in nearly 50 years. But Barnet’s win sent the Dons into the drop zone, and they will need to win on the final day of the season to stay in the division.
Elsewhere, Capital One Cup winners Bradford won a tight contest against Burton Albion, with James Hanson scoring the all-important goal. The three points secures the Bantams’ place in the play-offs. Cheltenham and Rotherham both won, and the former could yet snatch an automatic play-off spot.
