Swindon boss Danny Wilson was left to reflect on what might have been after seeing his side suffer a 1-0 defeat to Millwall in the League One play-off final at Wembley.
Paul Robinson's first-half strike - which came after Swindon failed to deal with a Danny Schofield corner - sent the Lions into the Championship. But Millwall needed a helping hand from the much-maligned Wembley turf as a nasty bobble denied Town's Charlie Austin the chance to equalise.
A dejected Wilson said: "The game hinged on two moments, a missed header from us at the corner and a bobble for Charlie."
He added: "I'd have put my house on him but what can you do when the ball bobbles up like that? You can't blame the boy. He's inconsolable, but his goals got us here. We wouldn't criticise him even if it wasn't a bobble. Maybe it's fate, I don't know.
"It's absolute devastation in the dressing room but they can be very proud of what they have done this season."
