The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

WE’VE done it, was it ever in doubt? When Mar­cello Trotta stepped up to take the 94th minute penalty my heart sank.

Just 12 sec­onds later Billy Payn­ter played the ball across Si­mon Moore for James Cop­pinger to poke the ball home and we are the cham­pi­ons of League One.

We erupted. The game as a whole was very nervy as the oc­ca­sion took its toll on ev­ery­one.

Rovers’ fans in good voice got be­hind the lads ex­cel­lently and that only seemed to spur them on. Rob Jones and the de­fence held their ground su­perbly and stopped ev­ery­thing Brent­ford had to of­fer.

You could say we were lucky but that’s our sea­son over­all, poor home form but an away form to ri­val any team in the coun­try.

It had to fin­ish on an away win. What a sea­son it has been, ups and downs through­out and Rovers have fi­nally had their Ser­gio Aguero mo­ment.
