Yeovil Town are in the npower Championship - who would have predicted that at the start of the season? Not me.

They've done marvellously, they really have, and given what happened at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon it's impossible to begrudge them a place in English football's second tier for the first time in the club's history. On the day - even though they had a lot of defending to do - I think they deserved to beat Brentford

Paddy Madden's early goal got them off to a perfect start, and what a magical strike it was. The way the ball fell at his feet, it was set nicely for him to bend it with the outside of his right boot; but saying it and doing it are two different things. The technique he produced to whip it into the top corner was sensational. He trusted himself, and boy did he deliver.

Madden's the division's top scorer this season, and in that split second we saw exactly why.

My old mucker at Carlisle United, Greg Abbott, will be kicking himself for letting the boy go. The Irishman just needed a run in a first team to prove what he could do, and at Yeovil he's had that. He must be worth a few quid now.

Yeovil's second goal before half-time seemed to bring Brentford to life after the break, and their play did deserve the goal they got, but in truth the Bees didn't threaten enough in forward positions. They needed a big game from Clayton Donaldson, and it didn't really happen for him.

Afterwards Gary Johnson spoke eloquently about the trust he has in his unheralded squad. Even though none of them are superstars - they are 'boys next door' according to their manager - and he knows that together they form a unit which he believes in.

When he talks about trust, Johnson means that he and his coaching staff know the players are listening to what they say. Some lads switch off and do their own thing when they're out on the pitch, but the best sides always have dressing rooms who take on board the managers' instructions.

It's a two-way thing. The players believe in their manager, and he has faith in them that they will try and implement what he's asked them to do. Together, they don't want to let anyone else down. It sounds easy, but you'd be surprised how rare that quality is.

I was also chuffed to bits for assistant manager Terry Skiverton, who stepped aside from the top job when Johnson made his return to Huish Park in January 2012.

It would have been easy for him to sulk at being stripped of the post, but instead he got on with things and decided to be the best right-hand man he could possibly be instead.

You've got to say that Gary Johnson and Terry Skiverton are a management team made in heaven for Yeovil Town.

I do feel sad for Brentford. They came so close to going up automatically on the final day, and now they've been struck by the Play-Off curse again. That's seven times now, that they've been unsuccessful in them.

How will the Glovers fare at the higher level? If they can avoid the bottom three I think it will be a huge success for them.

What goes in their favour is a brilliant team ethic, and the two goalscorers in their ranks.

If Paddy Madden and James Hayter stay, and are joined by another poacher, I see no reason why Yeovil won't go and score a load more goals in the Championship. It will be harder of course, but their confidence and knack for scoring will stand them in good stead.

Congratulations to Bradford City on their promotion to npower League 1 next season, too.

It's shaping up to be an even more powerful division, as the Bantams, Rotherham United, Gillingham, Port Vale, Peterborough United, Bristol City and Wolverhampton Wanderers are all big clubs who will expect to do well.

The crowds will be bigger, and the competition will possibly be even stiffer.
