  4. Reaction - Derby to face Leeds in play-offs

    FT: Derby 3-1 West Brom

    Derby manager Frank Lampard on the upcoming play-offs:

    "We're underdogs. I don't want to think about anything past Leeds. They're a fantastic team.

    "They will be two massive games for us. We've got our work cut out.

    "Take away all of the spying talk, we didn't play well in those two games (in the league against Leeds)."

  5. Post update

    Derby will take part in the Championship play-offs for the fourth time in six years, after 2014's loss to QPR in the final, plus semi-final eliminations against Hull and Fulham in 2016 and 2018 respectively.

    Can they finally end their 11-year stay in the second tier?

  6. 'Delighted' Lampard on reaching play-offs

    FT: Derby 3-1 West Brom

    Derby boss Frank Lampard tells Sky Sports:

    "Everyone has given their absolute all. The achievement is great, to be in the bracket of Leeds, West Brom and Villa.

    "I'm absolutely delighted. I don't even know if I'm speaking sense, because I'm so delighted."

  7. Norwich lift the Championship trophy

    Norwich fans

    Norwich pair Grant Hanley and Christoph Zimmermann lift the Championship trophy.

    Let the party begin!

  8. Norwich win Championship title

    At Villa Park, EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey has just placed the Championship trophy on its plinth and Norwich's players are entering the field to a guard of honour from the Aston Villa squad.

    Expect lots of jumping around and plenty of champagne to be sprayed in the next few minutes.

  9. The final table

    Top six

    How's how things have finished in the top six at the end of the regular season.

    Leeds were three points clear of Sheffield United going in to the Easter weekend, but have ended up six points adrift of the Blades.

    Norwich win the title by a five-point margin, while Derby - 20 points behind them - could still join the Canaries in the Premier League next season.

  10. Disappointment for Boro and Bristol City


    For a few minutes it had all looked so good for Middlesbrough.

    With Derby being held by West Brom, the Teessiders looked like they would take the final play-off spot when they led 2-0 at Rotherham.

    However, those second-half goals from Mason Bennett and Harry Wilson mean it's another season in the second tier for Boro.

    Bristol City needed to beat Hull and hope Boro and Derby slipped up if they were to pinch sixth but could only draw 1-1 at the KCOM Stadium.

  11. Reaction - Derby clinch play-off spot

    FT: Derby 3-1 West Brom

    Derby substitute Mason Bennett - who restored their lead this afternoon - tells Sky Sports:

    "We've got a great team here and a great bunch of lads. I'm delighted to get to the play-offs.

    "It's a lottery now. It's anyone's game."

  12. And now...



    The play-offs await.

    Three leagues, 12 teams, three promotion places to play for.

    There'll be heroes, there'll be villains, there'll (probably) be penalty shootouts...

    We'll bring you live text coverage of every play-off game, starting with Newport v Mansfield on Thursday night.

    Now we know who will be in the play-offs in each league get in touch with us with your three winners using #bbcefl on social media.

  13. Keogh fitness 'touch and go' before kick-off

    FT: Derby 3-1 West Brom

    Asked if he'll be fit for the play-offs, having been a doubt for today's game, Derby defender Richard Keogh adds:

    "It was touch and go this game, I'm not going to lie. But there was no way I was going to miss this game.

    "It started hurting a little bit with about 15 minutes to go. I'll rest now and get ready for it."

  14. Reaction - Derby clinch play-off spot

    FT: Derby 3-1 West Brom

    Derby skipper Richard Keogh tells Sky Sports:

    "What a day. We kept going and in the second half we played really well.

    "I didn't [know Middlesbrough were winning]. We tried to just concentrate.

    "We're there now and when you get in to the play-offs, it's anyone's..."

    Josh Brownhill's effort is deflected in off the arm of Hull defender Markus Henriksen, and Bristol City have an equaliser.

    Meanwhile, Matt Smith has secured all three points for QPR away at Sheffield Wednesday.

  20. BreakingFULL-TIME

    Aston Villa 1-2 Norwich


    Goals from Teemu Pukki and Mario Vrancic give them all three points at Villa Park.

    Sheffield United could only draw at Stoke so they'd have won the league even if they'd lost today but they end the season on a high.
