The 2000 Football League Division Three play-off Final was contested by Peterborough United and Darlington. This was the last Third Division play-off final to be played at the old Wembley Stadium before moving to Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

  • Peterborough United: Peterborough United beat Barnet 2-1 at Barnet's Underhill Stadium, and went through 5-1 on aggregate after winning 3-0 at home in the second leg.
  • Darlington: Darlington beat Hartlepool United 2-0 in the first leg, and went through 3-0 on aggregate after winning 1-0 at home in the second leg.
  • Match Summary

    The only goal of the game came in the 74th minute when Andy Clarke slotted the rebound in to the bottom right hand corner of the goal after Andy Collett made a good save with Clarke's first attempt.

    The result was harsh on Darlington as they dominated most of the game but failed to convert their chances into goals.
