SkyBet League 2: Fleetwood get promotion by beating Burton

eNewsletter
Antoni Sarcevic's second-half goal earned Fleetwood promotion to League One for the first time in their history at the expense of Burton Albion.

Sarcevic's direct 30-yard free-kick flew straight past wrong-footed Brewers keeper Dean Lyness.

Billy Kee had gone close to giving Burton the lead earlier in the second half of the Wembley play-off final but he fired over when through on goal.

Fleetwood have now won promotion in six of the last 10 seasons.

The crowd of just over 14,000 was one of the lowest for a play-off final, but considering Fleetwood has the smallest population of any Football League side - just over 25,000- and over 25% of the town were at Wembley it was still a great effort.
