Coleman’s Accrington win league, as Cook’s Wigan edge closer

Former Sligo Rovers manager John Coleman and his assistant Jimmy Bell have led Accrington Stanley to a historic league title in England.

Having already secured promotion, Accrington’s 1-0 victory over Lincoln City on Saturday was enough for them to secure top spot in League Two.

Former Rovers midfielder Seamus Conneely captained Accrington to the title.

Meanwhile, Paul Cook’s Wigan have edged closer to securing the League One title.

Despite being held to a 1-1 draw at home to second-from-bottom MK Dons, Wigan moved two points clear at the top after second-placed Blackburn Rovers lost 1-0 away to Charlton Athletic.

And given their vastly superior score difference, Wigan know a they will claim the title if they avoid defeat in their final game of the season away to Doncaster Rovers next Saturday.

Meanwhile, Ballinamallard United finished bottom of the Irish Premiership.

The Fermanagh side beat Glentoran 3-1 in their final game, but nearest rivals Carrick Rangers survived thanks to their 3-2 defeat of Warrenpoint Town.
