Sky Bet League play-off final: Rotherham in Championship

Steve Evans, Rotherham's controversial Scottish manager, was celebrating last night after taking the Yorkshire side into the Championship at Wembley.

Richard Smallwood scored the winning penalty as fourth-placed Rotherham came from two goals down to register their second successive promotion. Having trailed 2-0 at halftime, Alex Revell scored twice against his former club. Moses Odubajo and Dean Cox had opened for Orient.

The 51-year-old Evans is rebuilding a reputation after a "contract irregularity" scandal at Boston followed by a suspended prison sentence for tax avoidance. He then took Crawley into the Football League for the first time but suffered a stadium ban after an incident in the tunnel following a game at Bradford.
