Owls to face Brighton or Boro in play-offs

Wednesday will face either Brighton or Middlesbrough in the Championship play-off semi-finals.

Fifth-placed Derby’s lunchtime draw at Brighton took the Rams four points clear of us with just one game left, so confirming our sixth-place finish.

Burnley then clinched an immediate return to the Premier League with victory over QPR this afternoon, leaving Middlesbrough and Brighton to fight it out for the second automatic promotion place when they meet at the Riverside next Saturday. Boro require a point from the game to go up while Brighton need to win to seal a place in the top flight.

As the sixth-placed team we will then play against whoever misses out, with the first leg of the semi at home on Friday May 13 and the return on Monday May 16.
