Comments:

League position: 1st Unused substitutes: Leo Fortune-West and Adam Collin Six years and one day after being condemed to the Nationwide Conference, this result confirmed Doncaster Rovers' promotion to Division 2 of the Football League. They last appeared in the third tier of English senior football in 1988. Rovers returned to the Football League via the first Conference Play-Offs in 2002-03. This was the first time in their history that they had gained promotion in consecutive seasons.
