On Tuesday night, several fixtures were played throughout the English Football League on a spring evening under the floodlights. It may have been a midweek fixture, but fans still traveled all over the country to back their sides and we collect those numbers in one place! Below shows the attendances and results for Tuesday 4th April in the English Football League.

A last minute goal for Bolton Wanderers saw them close the gap on Sheffield United at the summit of the Sky Bet League One to just three points. Their win tonight against Southend United also sees them create a 10 point gap between them and third and fourth place Fleetwood Town and Bradford City respectively.
Tonight at The Valley marked a special occasion for the club, in which Charlton dedicated tonight’s fixture against MK Dons for fans across the country to come and pay their respects to PC Keith Palmer. Unfortunately, Karl Robinson’s Addicks succumbed to a 2 – 0 defeat at the hands of Robbie Neilson’s MK Dons.
Millwall’s 2 – 1 away win at New Meadow against Shrewsbury Town, saw them increase their point tally to match Southend United. However, the South London Lions still sit outside the playoff spots due to goal difference.
