Leeds 0-0 Rotherham
Leeds's season ended on an aptly frustrating note in a stalemate against relegated Rotherham.

Matthew Spring was the first of three Leeds players to be denied by the woodwork when his shot struck the post.

On-loan striker Rob Hulse saw his shot rebound off the inside of the post, and a similar fate befell Marlon King.

The biggest cheer of the afternoon was for Lucas Radebe who came off the bench five minutes from time for his 200th and last appearance for Leeds.

  • Leeds manager Kevin Blackwell:
    "I can't give our players Premiership football and it will be a tough, tough job to hold on to every one of them.

    "I now will have to wheel and deal again. The chairman is trying to resolve the financial situation at the club.

    "There has been some black holes appear apparently and, once he nails that down, then I will have a fair indication of what I can do."

  • Rotherham manager Mick Harford:
    "I thought some of the defending was particularly good and overall we just edged it and probably should have sneaked it at the death.

    "It was the best Rotherham performance since I came here and all credit to the players. They have been relegated and deserve a little accolade to end the season on."
