Five teams compete for Play-offs

The results this afternoon have confirmed that York City will not be involved in this season's Conference play-offs as they draw with Stevenage.

Otherwise Grays Athletic cemented their place with their win at Altrincham, Hailfax need one more point to be certain and it looks as though the other place will be taken by either Morecambe or Stevenage.

Stevenage, who had both Jason Goodlife and Darren Stamp sent off in their game with York, will have to win their game next Saturday and hope that either Morecambe or Halifax, assuming they lose their mid-week game, are defeated.

Next Saturday Morecambe travel to Grays Athletic for what could be a decider as to who plays who in the play-offs.

Top of the Conference:

1 Accrington Stanley 41 33 91
2 Hereford 41 24 77
3 Grays Athletic 40 40 75
4 Halifax 40 15 72
5 Morecambe 41 26 71
6 Stevenage 41 17 69

Potential Points Table:

Accrington 94
Grays 81
Hereford 80
Hailfax 78
Morecambe 74
Stevenage 71

Play-off tickets for Hereford United's home game were selling steadily before the game this afternoon but there were no long queues. As matters stand at present the Bulls need to take one point from the game at York next Saturday to be certain of a home game for the second leg in the play-offs. But that point may not be needed if Halifax fail to beat Gravesend on Tuesday.
