Team of the week
Graham Stack - Barnet
The Barnet goalkeeper played a full part in another two clean sheets over the Easter period - making it four clean sheets in a row for the Bees as they push for safety. On Good Friday, Edgar Davids' side welcomed Dagenham & Redbridge to Underhill and they had Stack to thank in securing a point as the goalkeeper tipped Medy Elito's thunderbolt onto the bar in the 70th minute of the stalemate. The Bees then travelled to fellow strugglers AFC Wimbledon on Easter Monday and Stack again kept the opposition out as his side leap-frogged their rivals in the table with a crucial 1-0 win.
Matt Fish - Gillingham
The Gillingham defender earns his place in the team after helping the league leaders pick up four points over the Easter weekend to maintain their push for promotion. First, the Gills held play-off chasing Fleetwood to a 2-2 draw on Saturday before Fish helped Martin Allen's side keep a clean sheet on Easter Monday in their 1-0 win over Rotherham at Priestfield. That victory sees the Gills sit eight points clear at the top of the table, and 11 points ahead of fourth-placed Cheltenham, with just four games remaining.
Chris Smith - York City
Centre-back and skipper Smith helped the well-organised York defence keep back-to-back clean sheets over the Easter weekend to boost the relegation-threatened side's survival hopes. First, the Minstermen travelled to Bristol Rovers and Nigel Worthington's team secured a goalless draw, where Smith forced the home goalkeeper into a good save. Two days later, York hosted fellow strugglers Plymouth at Bootham Crescent and ran out 2-0 winners - their first victory since New Year's Day, ending a 16-game winless run which Worthington and his predecessor Gary Mills had preceded over in the process.
David McGurk - York City
Smith's partner in the centre of the York defence also played his part in the back-to-back clean sheets. While the second-from-bottom Minstermen still remain in the drop zone, the vital victory over the Pilgrims lifted Worthington's side to within a point of safety, behind Torquay and Plymouth. Worthington's team now face a massive game against fellow strugglers Accrington on Saturday where victory over the 20th-placed visitors will see York leap-frog their opponents in the table - and out of the drop zone.
Elliot Johnson - Barnet
Like York, Barnet get two players from their defensive back four in the team of the week following their impressive displays over the Easter weekend. Johnson played his part in keeping both Dagenham and AFC Wimbledon out as the Londoners kept up their push for safety. Having now kept four clean sheets in succession, the Bees have earned eight points to climb up to 18th in the table, now three points above the drop zone with four games of the season remaining.
Lee Molyneux - Accrington Stanley
Molyneux scored a last-gasp winner against Wycombe on Good Friday to earn a precious three points for his relegation-threatened side. Stanley had to endure plenty of pressure from the home side and survived several near misses before Molyneux pounced in the third minute of added time to move them clear of the relegation zone. Stanley followed up the win with another point against high-flying Burton on Easter Monday to sit two points above the drop zone ahead of their crucial clash with York on Saturday.
Ian Henderson - Rochdale
Henderson scored as Rochdale came from behind to beat Exeter 2-1 on Easter Monday to boost their survival hopes and sit six points above the drop zone. After Exeter's Jamie Cureton opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time, Henderson equalised in the 87th minute when his shot took a huge deflection off the head of Exeter midfielder Mark Molesley and into the corner of the net, with Bobby Grant netting a late winner to earn a precious three points.
Stuart Lewis - Wycombe
Lewis scored the only goal of the game on Easter Monday as Wycombe produced the victory they needed over Morecambe to take a massive step towards League Two safety at the Globe Arena. Lewis secured the vital win for Gareth Ainsworth's side as he lashed home a shot from 12 yards out in the 55th minute after the Morecambe defence had failed to clear their lines after Matt Spring's deep free-kick was headed into the danger area. The win sees the Chairboys sit seven points above second-from-bottom York, with two games in hand.
James Hanson - Bradford City
Hanson scored a goal in both of Bradford's games over the Easter weekend as Phil Parkinson's side picked up four points to maintain their hopes of a play-off place. First the tall striker netted an 84th minute equaliser to earn Bradford a 2-2 home draw against Southend on Good Friday, heading home at the far post from substitute Nahki Wells' cross. Hanson again headed in at the far post from Garry Thompson's deep cross in the 3-1 win at Torquay which sees the Bantams move to five points of the play-offs, with a game in hand.
Top Pope - Port Vale
The striker netted four goals - including a hat-trick - as the second-placed Valiants took four points at Easter to continue their push towards League One. Pope ended his 11-match barren spell with a sensational hat-trick to earn Port Vale a 3-2 victory over fellow promotion hopefuls Cheltenham, with his treble taking his season's tally to 30 goals. He then rescued a point for his side with a late header in a 2-2 draw with Chesterfield at the Proact Stadium on Easter Monday as Micky Adams' team sit three points above fourth-placed Cheltenham, with a game in hand.
Oumare Tounkara - Bristol Rovers
Tounkara made a big impact on his first start for the Pirates as he scored twice in a 4-2 victory at Dagenham on Easter Monday. The former Sunderland man, who arrived on a short-term deal at the end of February, rounded goalkeeper Jonathan Miles and slotted into an empty net for his first goal on six minutes. He then registered his second goal in the 70th minute when he latched on to Danny Woodards' header and smashed the ball home off a post from the edge of the box to help John Ward's side to a fourth game without defeat.
