Nationwide Conference Wrap

Oxford United, Morecambe, York City and Exeter City all earned a spot in the Nationwide Conference play-offs on Saturday afternoon.

Oxford lost 0-1 to York City at Kit Kat Crescent but still managed to hang onto second-place on goal difference. Neal Bishop was the hero for the home side.

Morecambe defeated Grays 1-0 to cement their spot, with the only goal of the game scored by Paul Lloyd.

Exeter beat Southport 2-1 to guarantee their place in the play-offs. Adam Stansfield grabbed a brace to see the Grecians through.

Woking came out on top in their mid-table battle with Northwich Victoria, 3-2, a result which makes little difference to either side. Liam Marum, Tom Hutchinson and Neil Smith scored the decisive goals for the home side.

Stafford Rangers achieved the great escape and avoided relegation despite losing 0-1 at home to Forest Green Rovers. Mark Preece was the hero for the away side.

Already relegated St Albans City put in a final performance to remember against a buoyant Weymouth side. City came away 1-0 winners thanks to a goal from Djouman Sangare.

Andy Campbell hit a vital brace as strugglers Halifax avoided the drop with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Stevenage Borough. John Nurse equalised for the visitors before Campbell grabbed the winner.

Altrincham could only manage a goalless draw against Aldershot Town on as their relegation was confirmed at Moss Lane.

Burton Albion missed out on the play-offs after slumping to a 1-2 defeat at the hands of Rushden & Diamonds at Pirelli Stadium. Curtis Woodhouse grabbed the winning goal for the visitors in 58th minute.

Cambridge United ensured their survival with a 1-0 win over Tamworth thanks to a Robbie Simpson penalty.

Crawley Town and Kidderminster Harriers played out a goalless draw, a result which does not affect either side on the league placings.
