Football: Victory sends Bristol City a point clear
Wednesday 01 April 1998
The former West Ham forward Matthew Rush put the Latics, who later had their Australian defender Doug Hodgson sent off, ahead after 23 minutes, when he drove the ball into the top left-hand corner of Keith Welch's goal following some neat approach play. However, two goals in 60 seconds soon after the interval by Gregory Goodridge and the on-loan Wolves striker Jason Roberts put the Robins one point above Watford.
Grimsby Town stay third, one place above Wrexham, after the two sides fought out a goalless draw at the Racecourse Ground, while Gillingham's play-off hopes suffered a blow after a Wayne Evans goal gave Walsall a 1-0 win at the Bescot Stadium.
The former Leeds striker Carl Shutt struck twice as Darlington beat Shrewsbury 3-1 at Feethams to move above their opponents in the only Third Division game of the evening.
