    Robbed?? Are you kidding me???? We were the better team without doubt in both legs, you shouldn't even argue that. That first half you barely even touched the ball, we were sensational. The best I have seen us play in a very long time. I agree in both legs that decisions went against you, I can't argue that. Football won at the end of that day rather than negative football, looking to scrape a win.

    When your second goal was (incorrectly) ruled offside; that was a huge relief because I could see it swinging your way. After our first half though, it would have been almost criminal to be level.

    We deserved to win over two legs, 100%. Better team won the leg, we had the luck but we deserved it.

    **edit** We didn't deserve the win in the 1st (home) leg but the draw was fair.

    Didn't see the first leg but thought Coventry deserved to win tonight - much the better side and showed more quality.

    Some poor officiating went against Notts County that helped put a gloss on the score line but I think Cov more than deserved to go through.

    Not been on here moaning or whinging about the ref/linesman simply because you get used to such poor officials all season.

    If you look they are not Notts County posters, Did you deserve the win? Luck is not crap officials getting all the key points wrong in your favor, You are a Coventry supporter I fully understand rose tinted glasses, but the posters that don't agree with you are NOT NCFC supporters.

    Congrats Coventry. Good set of fans. Good to see you on the way back.

    Feel sorry for Exeter, another good club that always seems to do well on a small budget. Tisdale is definitely off isn't he? Looks hacked off and keeps avoiding questions about his future.

    Just got back, what a feeling! We've hit form just at the right time of the season, so many of those young lads have grown into real players over the season. Mark Robins deserves respect for what he's done, so much of it down to him! I can't help to think back to that penalty decision in the first leg, how different it could have been.

    Feel for the Exeter fans, spoke to a few throughout the day. They seem like a good bunch and wish them success next season.

    Yesterday was brilliant. Still on a high. Both teams were a bit scared in the first half but second half we blew Exeter away.

    First promotion in 51 years. Since we beat Wolves to gain promotion to the old Division One in 1967!

    MATCH PROGRAMMES

    A number of Clubs had previously asked the EFL if the mandatory publication of a match programme could be addressed as a result of an overall decline in sales and the proliferation of digital and social media, which has the ability to deliver the same content in a more cost effective manner. Mandatory publication of a programme was required due to a number of the EFL’s partnership, sponsorship and opt-in agreements.

    EFL Clubs approved an amendment which allows Clubs to opt out of providing advertising in match programmes on the basis it is replaced with other inventory. This amendment will mean that the requirement to deliver programme advertising in the EFL Regulations will only apply if a match programme is produced. The amended regulation provides each Club with the option to determine whether or not they publish a match programme.

    That's bye bye to the programme for many L2 clubs.

    GRIMSBY fans (if there's any), what's Dembele like?

    Apparently we've had a bid rejected. 4 L2 goals isn't exactly prolific... but only a young kid. Potential?
