Bristol City made a return to the Championship after a two-year exile by storming to the League One title with a massive 99 points.

The Robins were joined by MK Dons, who pipped Preston to automatic promotion on the last day.

However, Simon Grayson’s men bounced back at Wembley to beat Swindon in the play-off final and join City and the Dons in the second tier.

The Bristol City defender showed true leadership at the back as he played a key part in helping the club to the title. Not only that though, the former Swindon player notched an incredible 15 goals. Not bad for a centre-back.


Manager of the Season: Steve Cotterill (Bristol City)

When the ex-Nottingham Forest boss was appointed in December 2013, City looked more likely to be playing their football in League Two rather than the Championship. But after steering them clear of relegation, he built a strong squad over the summer and oversaw just five defeats from 46 matches.


Goal of the Season: Jermaine Beckford (Preston)

After missing out on automatic promotion on the final day, many thought Chesterfield might catch Preston cold in the play-offs. But a 4-0 aggregate win was topped off with the awesome strike from Beckford, who scored three times over the two legs.
