Verdict: Wow! What a season, plenty of goals (including lots of last ‘minuters’), attractive, high-tempo football, drama and a never-say-die attitude from all the squad. A top-half finish would have been considered a success by most Millers, but a Wembley win ensured a fairytale ending.

Best player: Ben Pringle.
