Swansea booked automatic promotion to League One with a nervy win at Bury on the last day of the season.

Adrian Forbes gave Swansea the lead after just 25 seconds, the midfielder sliding in to score left-footed from close range.

Bury's attacks kept Swansea nerves on a knife edge, with over-excited fans spilling onto the pitch at moments.

But after Southend were held to a 1-1 draw at Grimsby, Swansea leap-frogged them into third place and League One.
