The four sides taking part in the Championship play-offs were confirmed on Saturday afternoon as we now know Huddersfield will take on Luton and Nottingham Forest meet Sheffield United for a place at Wembley.

Few would have picked those four teams earlier in the season, with Luton in particular being a surprise package as they look to reach the Premier League for the first time ever.

The other three teams have all previously played in the Premier League and are hoping to return to the top flight with automatically promoted Fulham and Bournemouth.

As always, third (Huddersfield) meets sixth (Luton) and fourth (Forest) meets fifth (Sheffield United) in the two-legged semi-finals. Then the winners fight in a match for promotion in Wembley.
