Remember how fun and crazy the end of the Premier League was last year? The end of the League One was also pretty crazy this year. Doncaster (second place) played Brentford (third place) over the weekend and Brentford had a stoppage time PK to win the game and give them automatic promotion to the Championship. . . .then this happened.
