Swindon 0 Millwall 1 

League One Play-Off Final
 
Wembley Stadium
 
RESULT: Swindon Town 0 Millwall 1
 
Millwall scorer: Robinson 39
 
A day that started full of such hope ended in play-off pain for Town's fans and players tonight - with none more heartbroken than Charlie Austin.
 
The Swindon striker was in tears at the final whistle after he missed Town's best chance to equalise Millwall's first-half opener.
 
But when the ball bobbled on the Wembley pitch just as a clean-through Austin was about to score - a piece of bad luck confirmed by a TV replay - the 21-year-old's dream moment turned into a nightmare as his shot flew wide.
 
The shocked look on the young forward's face mirrored by thousands of Robins' fans at Wembley and those back in Swindon watching at home and in pubs.
 
"I feel gutted for young Charlie," commented Danny Wilson, who has now lost two play-off finals, when asked about his marksman.
 
"But without his twenty goals this season we wouldn't even be here.
 
"We've had a great season and today just wasn't our day. They had the first half, we had the second.
 
"But I can tell you one thing. We'll all be back better and stronger for this despite us all being very disappointed with the outcome."
 
"The sooner we move the play-offs to the Millenium stadium, the better!"
 
said a forthright Andrew Fitton, the Town chairman, who was very critical of the pitch.
