League Two round-up: Lincoln party postponed as unbeaten run ends

LINCOLN
missed the chance to be crowned champions after their 19-game unbeaten run was halted by a 1-0 loss at CARLISLE
.
The Imps secured promotion last weekend and would have guaranteed top spot with victory at Brunton Park. But after having defender Jason Shackell sent off with half an hour played, a goal from Mike Jones inflicted a first defeat since Boxing Day on Danny Cowley's side and moved the hosts to within a point of the top seven.
MANSFIELD'S
4-0 win over MORECAMBE
saw them go second and retain a slim chance of catching the leaders. David Flitcroft's side are eight points behind Lincoln with three games left.
BURY
dropped out of the automatic promotion places following a 3-1 loss at NEWPORT
. A brace from Mickey Demetriou and a strike from Jamille Matt earned a surprise win.
MK DONS
capitalised on that result to move above Bury into third by increasing the relegation concerns of NOTTS COUNTY
with a 2-1 success at Meadow Lane.
County remain bottom, but defeats for fellow strugglers Macclesfield and 
Yeovil leave Neal Ardley's men within touching distance of safety.
Second-bottom YEOVIL
were beaten 2-0 at Crewe. Sol Campbell's MACCLESFIELD
stay two points ahead of their rivals following a 2-1 loss at NORTHAMPTON
.
Sixth-placed FOREST GREEN
secured an impressive 1-0 win over play-off rivals TRANMERE
.
