Bradford City had done enough in the first leg to win the tie after a second leg of very few chances.
The Iron miss out to Millwall after going infront & then conceding 3 quick goals either side of half time.
For once the play off games don't throw up any surprises & so it will be Forest Green Rovers against Tranmere Rovers for the promotion place. Tranmere had the edge as the season came to an end & must start favourites..

All pretty tight after the play off first legs, with only Blackpool going into the second leg with a lead..

Congratulations to Forest Green Rovers on their first promotion to the League.
All the goals came in a frantic first half that saw Rovers score 2 in the last 3 minutes to put themselves firmly in charge.

Unlike many of the smaller clubs Rovers have an owner with money & ambition and should do well in the league. That is not to say that owner Dale Vince isn't rather full of personal quirks but his heart does seem to be with Rovers specifically rather than any club that happened to be available.. :D

Just as well you don't report for a living Bob both teams were "Rovers" We "Old Birkonians" are used to it!

Yes,congratulations to Forest Green Rovers ! A bit of a surprise that but apparently the better side on the day won it.
Conference fans from the north of England wont be too sad as Tranmere staying in the league means two big home gates home and away.
Sooo Bob.....when Cheltenham play Forest Green in League 2 next season,who will you be cheering on ?? :D

Oh,and well done Everton Ladies on their 3-0 win.......were Lukaku and Barkley playing ? :badteeth:
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.

Premiership Play Off,second leg. Reading 1 Fulham 0 (aggregate 2-1)

A Yann Kermorgant penalty was enough for Reading to edge out Fulham and reach the Championship play-off final.
The French forward fired the Royals into the Wembley final on Monday, 29 May for a shot at promotion to the Premier League just after half-time.
The only goal of the second leg came after Fulham centre-back Tomas Kalas was penalised for handball.
Fulham were denied a leveller by a string of excellent saves from Ali Al Habsi in the Reading goal.
The Royals, who finished third in manager Jaap Stam's first season in charge, will play either Huddersfield or Sheffield Wednesday in the final.

Congratulations to Huddersfield and commiserations to Wednesday who missed out in the play offs for the 2nd successive season.
Lets hope that The Terriers can make it all the way to the Premiership for the first time......not that I've got anything against Reading but I'm a northerner !
But who will the Leeds fans on the forum be rooting for in the Final ? Huddersfield.....or is it taboo to cheer on another Yorkshire team ??

Being the biggest and best club in Yorkshire (and arguably, the world), Leeds fans tend to look down in a protective sort of way to our smaller brethren so, of course we will be cheering Huddersfield on.

Apart from that, I have a particular dislike for Reading as, they epitomise, all that is wrong with modern football. A happy, clappy club in a plastic ground with fickle support. I remember a few years back when I last visited that modern carbuncle of a stadium of theirs they played music after they scored a goal - horrible!!

Come on you Terriers!!

Blackpool reached the League Two play-off final as an injury-time own goal ended Luton's promotion hopes at the end of a remarkable, see-sawing tie.
The Hatters, trailing 3-2 from the first leg, fell further behind when Nathan Delfouneso opened the scoring.
Kelvin Mellor's own goal, Scott Cuthbert's header and Danny Hylton's penalty then hauled Luton in front.
But Armand Gnanduillet made it 5-5 on aggregate, before Stuart Moore's own goal sent the visitors to Wembley.
Goalkeeper Moore's misfortunate capped an incredible night of League Two play-off action, as Exeter City beat Carlisle United in the other semi-final - also 6-5 on aggregate and also courtesy of a 95th-minute winner.
The Grecians had looked to be coasting towards the final on Sunday, 28 May before Carlisle scored two late goals to level the tie.
But Jack Stacey's spectacular long-range strike in stoppage time means Blackpool will face Exeter in the Wembley showpiece.

What time is the Bradford v Millwall KO please ? ...

DM hopng for a Millwall win ,,they deserve it and Bradford is a good local derby game for next season .. i like how Millwall are playing at the moment and their victory over Scunny was a cracking game with both sides going for it ..how the game should be played ,,where as Bradford are ... lets say ...id rather watch a Thai soap ...YES THAT BAD !!

Camorn the Lions ..

Regarding the championship playoff final .. a big suprise with Hudders n Reading getting thru , i would have bet my left testicle on Fulhanm v Sheff Wed final .. shame .. as both Hudders n Reading are not worthy and niether will not surivie in the EOL as they play such defensive negative football ...take a look at the Terriers end ov season goal difference total ..who ever wins out in footballs richest game neither will light up the EPL ... IMO.
