Promotion to the Championship was on the line for League One clubs Rotherham and Leyton Orient on Sunday, and the high stakes evidently brought out the best of Rotherham’s Alex Revell.
With Leyton holding a 2-0 lead early in the second half, the striker notched two goals in five minutes to get Rotherham level. His second was an absolute firecracker:

The only thing better than that sweet strike? His manager’s priceless reaction:
Steve Evans is probably still running and fist-pumping somewhere.
Revell’s brace sent the playoff final into extra time, and after thirty more minutes of drama, Rotherham won 4-3 in penalties to clinch back-to-back promotions and return to England’s second division for the first time since the 2004/05 season.
