  1. Goodnight

    That's about all we have for you today, but please join us at 11:15 BST on Sunday for the final day of the League One season.

    Bolton and Fleetwood still both harbour hopes of joining Sheffield United in the Championship next season, while there is also a play-off place and relegation spot to be decided.

    Until then, have a very good evening.

    Glenn Murray

    And in our final game of the afternoon, Bristol City confirmed their Championship survival with victory at promoted Brighton, who missed out on the chance to secure the title.

    If you missed it, take a look at Ian Woodcock's report.

  3. Orient v Colchester ends behind closed doors

    Leyton Orient fans

    The other big story in the EFL this afternoon came at the Matchroom Stadium where Leyton Orient's match with Colchester United finished behind closed doors after a near-two hour delay caused by a pitch invasion by O's fans.

    Colchester eventually won the game 3-1 after home fans protesting against owner Francesco Becchetti got onto the pitch in the 85th minute.

    An EFL statement said the game was concluded "to maintain the integrity of the competition".

  4. Reaction: 'Table tells no lies'

    FT: Reading 1-0 Wigan

    Graham Barrow

    Wigan's relegation to League One was confirmed with a 1-0 defeat by Reading, whose place in the play-offs was already assured.

    Wigan manager Graham Barrow said:

    "At the end of the game, I was disappointed because I wanted to take it to the last weekend. But results went against us elsewhere as well. 

    "I thought we could stay up, I knew it was a long shot, and I was quite proud of the performance today. But obviously the finishing touch was not there. 

    "The lads have been great for me but clearly it hasn't been enough to keep us up. 

    "There are things we'll have to look at internally, which haven't been right, and that's fact. We are where we are, the table tells no lies."

  5. Post update

    But one relegation was confirmed in the Championship this afternoon as Wigan returned to League One after only one season.

  6. Reaction: Forest's 'commitment and quality is evident'

    FT: QPR 2-0 Nottingham Forest

    Conor Washington

    Nottingham Forest’s 2-0 defeat by QPR leaves them 21st in the Championship, only outside the relegation zone on goal difference. The Reds host Ipswich in the final game of the season.

    Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton told BBC Radio Nottingham.

    “We created chances against a good team, but we didn’t take them, it’s as simple as that.

    “I was pleased with long aspects of the game, whether it was four at the back or three at the back, we created space, created chances. We’ve got to get the rewards, the work ethic, their commitment, their quality’s evident, but we’ve got to get the rewards.

    “We’ve got to come in, we’ve got to work hard, we’ve got to focus on the game and we’ve got to deliver a performance.”

  7. Post update

    We've already had reaction from Birmingham and Blackburn - who both won today - but what about Nottingham Forest, who face a nervy week ahead.

  8. Battle to beat the drop

    FT: Brighton 0-1 Bristol City

    Here are the key fixtures:

    • Brentford v Blackburn
    • Bristol City v Birmingham City
    • Nottingham Forest v Ipswich
    Bottom of the Championship

    "It was hard work before Brighton put on a good show and fully deserve to go up but we did well tonight.

    "We've been hard to beat in recent weeks and we fully deserve to stay up."

  11. Post-match reaction

    FT: Brighton 0-1 Bristol City

    Bristol City defender Aden Flint told Sky Sports: "We've probably come here as the underdogs but we put in a great performance and got a deserved win.

    "I have made a living out of heading and kicking and that's what I've done today. I was in the right place at the right time for most of them."
