Sheff United and Don­caster on the up

The Football League Paper - - FRONT PAGE - By John Lyons

IT WAS party time in York­shire last night as Sh­effield United and Don­caster Rovers both sealed pro­mo­tion.

The Blades came from be­hind to win 2-1 at Northamp­ton thanks to John Fleck’s 88th-minute win­ner – and clinched pro­mo­tion back to the Cham­pi­onship af­ter a six-year ab­sence.

De­lighted Sh­effield United man­ager Chris Wilder, who won pro­mo­tion with Northamp­ton last term, said: “This club was drift­ing, it shouldn’t have been drift­ing – but I’ve come in and done my best.

“We’ve not only pulled it around on the pitch, we’ve done it off the pitch, too.”

Tommy Rowe scored the only goal of the game as Don­caster beat Mans­field to earn pro­mo­tion from League Two.
