Unbelievable Ending to Brentford-Doncaster Match [VIDEO]

doncaster rovers Unbelievable Ending to Brentford Doncaster Match [VIDEO]

Don’t be surprised if some of the Brentford fans had heart attacks today. In last week’s match against Sheffield United, there were three red cards and four penalties awarded in their match. And then today, with Brentford needing a win to secure promotion, they were awarded a last minute penalty. If Brentford scored, they would have been promoted. Up stepped Fulham’s on-loan striker Marcello Trotta to take the PK, but his shot hit the woodwork.

Then, Doncaster broke on the counter, ran down the rest of the pitch where James Coppinger knocked the ball into the back of the net to win promotion as Champions of League One, helping them land a place in the nPower Championship next season.

Brentford, meanwhile, will have to battle it out in the playoffs to try to land a place in the Championship next season.

Alongside Doncaster, Bournemouth secured automatic promotion today to the Championship.

Congratulations too to Watford and Brighton on securing playoff spots in the nPower Championship.

Watch the video highlights of the incredible last-minute penalty and then the resulting goal. Brentford are in red and white, while Doncaster are in their away shirts (green).
