Burton are promoted after drawing 0-0 at Doncaster Credit: PA

The point meant they finished just above Walsall, who needed a win today, and a Burton defeat in order to pip them into second place.

But Burton held on to draw against a Doncaster side that finished the game with nine men following injuries.

That meant Walsall's 5-0 win at Port Vale, which including a couple of long-distance wonder-goals, was in vain.

They will play Barnsley in the play-offs, and after today's result will go into the semi-final on a high.
