Division One Status Retained.

The Millers got the draw that kept them in League One and sent MK Dons down - but the Dons fought every inch of the way for their survival.

All in all enough was done to retain division one football at Millmoor next season.

The fans at the game yesterday were superb, next season we need that at every home game to make Millmoor the fortress it once was.
