  1. That's all for now

    Saturday's Championship action

    Angus MacDonald

    It's been another dramatic afternoon in the Championship and it looks like it may well be the end of Hull's stay in the second tier after defeat by a defiant Luton.

    Preston, Millwall and Bristol City have all had slim play-off hopes dashed, while Brentford have given the initiative in the automatic promotion race back to West Brom.

    Tomorrow Leeds play for the first time since winning promotion and being crowned champions and perhaps a guard of honour from Derby awaits them? That'll be worth watching - see you then.

  2. Uncertainty for Wigan

    FT: Charlton 2-2 Wigan

    Not yet knowing the outcome of their appeal against their 12-point deduction, Wigan fans don't yet know what kind of final-day drama they might endure.

    If the penalty is enforced, the Latics will have to win on the final day, against a Fulham side who are still in the hunt for an automatic promotion place, and hope for help from elsewhere.

    If it's overturned, Paul Cook's men are 10 points clear of any danger.

  3. Another close shave for Blues

    FT: Preston 2-0 Birmingham

    Birmingham still haven't won since football restarted - not scoring away from home this summer - and they cannot be certain of their safety yet with Wigan's appeal against a 12-point deduction still to be decided.

    It means that, for a third time in four seasons, and for the fourth time since 2014, the Blues will go in to the final round of Championship games still in a relegation battle, still unsure of their survival.

  4. The final-day fixtures

    There are a couple of games to be played tomorrow, but what a final round of matches we're going to have, with so much still to be decided at both ends of the table.

    Here are Wednesday's fixtures (all 19:30 BST):

    • Birmingham City v Derby County
    • Brentford v Barnsley
    • Bristol City v Preston North End
    • Cardiff City v Hull City
    • Leeds United v Charlton Athletic
    • Luton Town v Blackburn Rovers
    • Millwall v Huddersfield Town
    • Nottingham Forest v Stoke City
    • Reading v Swansea City
    • Sheffield Wednesday v Middlesbrough
    • West Bromwich Albion v Queens Park Rangers
    • Wigan Athletic v Fulham

    Which clubs will be left disappointed and which teams will be somersaulting with joy?

  5. The bottom of the Championship

    Bottom of table

    Here's what that win for Luton has done to the battle at the bottom - the Hatters are level on points with Charlton ahead of the final round of fixtures.

    If Wigan's appeal against their 12-point deduction is unsuccessful, they'd be down to 46 points.

    That means Hull aren't quite down yet, but if Wigan don't get a points penalty, the Tigers would need a near-impossible final-day goal-difference swing to stay up. The Tigers look doomed.

    Barnsley are in action tomorrow and if they don't beat Nottingham Forest, they will be relegated.

  6. The top of the Championhip

    Top of table

    Brentford missed the chance to put promotion to the Premier League in their own hands going into Wednesday's final round of fixtures by falling to defeat at Stoke City. That loss also meant that Leeds United are crowned champions.

    Fulham are still in the mix for automatic promotion, too, after their win today.

    Millwall's play-offs hopes ended as they suffered a 4-3 defeat at QPR, while Cardiff City remain in pole position to clinch the final Championship play-off spot following a 3-1 win at Middlesbrough.

    Swansea are seventh - if they win their final game and Cardiff lose, it'll be the Swans in the top six.

  7. Championship full-time headlines

    Angus MacDonald
    • Hull are on the verge of relegation to League One after losing 1-0 to Luton, who are now only in the bottom three on goal difference thanks to Kazenga LuaLua's late winner.
    • Fulham keep their slim automatic promotion chances alive after a 5-3 triumph over Sheffield Wednesday - Neeskens Kebano and Aleksandar Mitrovic each scored twice.
    • Cardiff need only a point on the final day to claim the final play-off spot thanks to their 3-1 win at Middlesbrough - Swansea's 1-0 victory over Bristol City means they're the only side who can catch them.
    • Millwall's hopes of a top-six finish are over after a 4-3 defeat by QPR, while Blackburn beat Reading by the same score.
    • Birmingham are still not safe from the drop - depending on what happens with Wigan's 12-point deduction - following a 2-0 loss at Preston.
  8. Post update

    Let's get some headlines...


    QPR 4-3 Millwall

    Millwall will be playing Championship football next season as QPR ended their hopes of a play-off finish.


    QPR 4-3 Millwall

    Millwall thought they scored but the flag is up.

    Shaun Hutchinson's header is ruled out for offside.



    Fulham 5-3 Sheff Wed

    Wow. Eight goals in total and five for Fulham, who remain in the hunt for second spot.

    Wednesday night - with three teams in with a chance of getting automatic promotion - should be tasty!


    Middlesbrough 1-3 Cardiff

    Cardiff celebrate

    Cardiff are in pole position for the final play-off spot after a comfortable win at Middlesbrough.

    Welsh rivals Swansea are the only team that can deny them a top-six finish.

  13. GOAL: QPR 4-3 Millwall

    Jayson Molumby (90+5 mins)

    Late late goal as Jayson Molumby's deflected shot from outside of the box finds the net but it could be too late.


    Blackburn 4-3 Reading

    There was nothing riding on this but these two sides produced a great game as a late Sam Gallagher header snatched the points for Rovers.


    Hull 0-1 Luton

    Luton have done it, Hull are all-but relegated.

    Despite an inspired second-half display it looked like the Hatters would have to settle for a draw, but Kazenga LuaLua's fine late strike means they are now only inside the bottom three on goal difference.

    Hull are three points from safety with a 16-goal swing in goal difference to overhaul 21st-placed Charlton - though Wigan's possible 12-point deduction could yet be a lifeline.


    Blackburn 4-3 Reading

    Sam Gallagher almost with his second but his first-time strike crashes off the bar.


    Preston 2-0 Birmingham

    Paul Fletcher

    BBC Sport at Deepdale

    That's it for Preston - the end of their home campaign, and one that ends with three points. But, of course, there will be no lap of the pitch to thank the fans this season after the final whistle, that would be pointless.

    Instead, with their play-off prospects now officially over, they will be left to reflect on a run of form that cost them a place in the top six. This is just their second win since the restart.

    They have been top of the table this season and right up there for most of it but arguably their lack of a regular goalscorer has cost them.

    Midfielder Daniel Johnson is the top scorer this season with 12 goals - and that is the problem for Alex Neils' team right there. Lots of quality - apart from where it matters most.


    Swansea 1-0 Bristol City

    Connor Roberts' first-half goal means Swansea still have a chance of claiming a play-off place going into the final day.

    Bristol City are now out of the race, with Famara Diedhiou seeing his second-half penalty hit the post.

  19. Post update

    Hull 0-1 Luton

    This one has a while left yet.

    Luton's Martin Cranie has a cut to the face and is being treated.

    Hull's Championship status is hanging by a thread.

  20. GOAL: Fulham 5-3 Sheff Wed

    Bobby Decordova-Reid (90+1 mins)

    Fulham make their win secure now, as Bobby Decordova-Reid produces a clinical, expert finish from outside the area.

    We've had some scorelines today, haven't we?!

    Fulham will still be in the hunt for automatic promotion on the final day on Wednesday.
