Bristol Rovers vs Bristol City[]

After a goalless draw at Ashton Gate a week earlier, the winner of the second leg was guaranteed a place in the Final. Rickie Lambert's 65th minute strike was the only difference between the two sides to send Rovers to Cardiff. After the game, a number of fans from both sides invaded the pitch, resulting in riot police being forced to separate the fans.
