In the last round Evis Mykolaiv (Shipbuilders) snatched the ticket to the Ukrainian Premier League from under the nose of Polihraftekhnika Oleksandriya (a point ahead of the Shipbuilders) by beating Naftovyk Okhtyrka 2:1 after allowing the first goal.

It is also worth of noting that the newly promoted club from Cherkasy was leading the league during the winter break and along with the Oleksandria club was the main contender for promotion. The second half of the season for Dnipro was terrible and they placed in the mid-table after the final round.
