Episode 155 – Final day drama

Final Day Drama

It’s all over for another year. The final weekend of the Football League season saw the usual mix of blood, sweat and tears, not to mention the odd pitch invasion or two (including one with a man on a mobility scooter). The boys are back together in London to look back over an incredible weekend.

MK Dons clinched the final automatic promotion spot in League One with a 5-1 drubbing of Yeovil on Sunday lunchtime at Stadiummk, whilst Preston slipped to a shock 1-0 defeat at Colchester. We’re joined by Toby Lock, sports editor for the MK Citizen and Leighton Buzzard Observer. Toby tells us about what promotion means to Pete Winkelman, Karl Robinson and the city of Milton Keynes.

Bury also came from behind to pinch the final automatic promotion spot in League Two. The Shakers won 1-0 on a nervy afternoon at Tranmere, to edge out both Southend and Wycombe for a place in the third tier next season. A VERY happy Mark discusses his afternoon in Birkenhead, plus we’re joined by Craig Nelson, the Bury reporter for the Bury Times and the Bolton News. Craig discusses the Shakers’ amazing post Christmas turnaround, the impact of Nick Pope and their chances in League One next season.

We also hear a disappointed DC on Watford’s final day damp squib, plus discuss Derby County’s epic meltdown, relegations for Notts County, Crawley and Leyton Orient, and another farcical day at Bloomfield Road…
