Hayter puts Rovers in the Championship

Published Add your comment

James Hayter scored the only goal of the game to secure promotion for Doncaster and consign Leeds to a second season of third-tier football after a tense Coca-Cola League One play-off final at Wembley.

Hayter took advantage of dismal marking to head in a 47th-minute corner and continue Rovers´ remarkable ascent of the football pyramid.

Just five years ago the club were playing non-league football but Hayter´s crucial strike was enough to cap a third promotion in five years and bring second-tier football to Doncaster for the first time since 1957.
