ROTHERHAM HAVE BEEN promoted to the Championship after beating Shrewsbury Town 2-1 in today’s League One playoff final at Wembley.

Richard Wood scored both his side’s goals, including one after extra-time, while Alex Rodman’s 58th-minute equaliser proved immaterial.

Former Dundalk star Richie Towell — currently on loan from Premier League outfit Brighton — played the full game, while Limerick-born winger Anthony Forde came off the bench with 10 minutes remaining.

Ex-Ireland international Darren Potter is also part of Rotherham’s squad, but the 33-year-old midfielder has not featured at all since picking up a serious achilles injury back in December.
