Leeds secured automatic promotion to the Coca-Cola Championship after a tense final day in League One.

With Norwich already promoted as champions, the permutations for who could join them in winning automatic promotion were vast, with five teams in with a shout. Three points separated second-placed Leeds and sixth-placed Huddersfield before kick-off, with Millwall, Swindon and Charlton the other sides guaranteed at least a play-off place.

Leeds came from behind to beat Bristol Rovers 2-1 and join the Canaries in returning to the Football League's top tier thanks to second-half strikes from Jonny Howson and Jermaine Beckford.

Millwall beat Swindon 3-2 to finish third and set up a play-off meeting with Huddersfield, who lost 2-1 at Exeter.

The Robins will meet Charlton in the play-offs after the Addicks' 2-0 win at Oldham secured fourth place.

At the other end of the table, Gillingham joined Stockport, Southend and Wycombe in being relegated to League Two after a 3-0 loss to the Wanderers.
