Lincoln City crowned League Two champions following goalless draw with Tranmere Rovers

Lincoln clinched the League Two title with a goalless home draw against Tranmere on Easter Sunday.

The Imps threw everything at Rovers, whose goalkeeper Scott Davies denied Bruno Andrade twice while Jake Caprice produced a goalline clearance from a Matt Rhead header.

The stalemate was enough, however, as Mansfield’s defeat at Oldham left the Stags nine points behind Danny Cowley’s team with just two matches remaining. The point also secured a play-off spot for Tranmere.

Mansfield lost 3-2 at Boundary Park, where Mohamed Maouche scored in between Gevaro Nepomuceno’s double for the Latics. Tyler Walker and Neal Bishop replied for the Stags, who twice found themselves two goals behind.

Bury moved above Mansfield into second place with a 3-1 home win against Northampton, who led through Andy Williams’ strike. Goals from Chris Stokes, Danny Mayor and Nicky Maynard completed the turnaround for the Shakers.
