Leeds remain in the doldrums

 

Doncaster 1 Leeds 0: James Hayter's second-half header helped Doncaster win promotion and consigned Leeds to a second season of third-tier football after a tense 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.

Leeds - who started the season on -15 points for breaking Football League rules on insolvency - had large spells of possession but were indebted to their goalkeeper Casper Ankergren for keeping them in the game as Doncaster threatened every time they poured forward.
