Titles, promotions, relegations: EFL set for chaotic conclusion

It is set to be a huge final weekend in the EFL, with titles, promotions and relegations all on the line across the Championship, League One and League Two.

With Championship and League Two final days set to take place on Saturday, and League One coming up on Sunday, we take you through all the crucial permutations here…

Sky Bet Championship

Who will go down on the final day?

Derby still have their fate in their own hands as they face Sheffield Wednesday in a final-day crunch clash at Pride Park – live on Sky Sports Football from 12pm on Saturday, with kick-off at 12.30pm.

A win keeps them up. A draw will be enough if Rotherham fail to win. They will be relegated if they lose, and relegated if they draw and Rotherham win.

Rotherham head to Cardiff knowing only a win will do, while they also need Derby to fail to win.

Sheffield Wednesday will be relegated if they fail to win at Derby. They will only stay up if they win, and Rotherham fail to win. Unless something spectacular happens at the Riverside…

Wycombe are almost certainly down, but deserve huge credit for keeping themselves in the slightest hunt until the final day of the season in their first ever Championship campaign.

They will be relegated if they fail to win at Middlesbrough, and will only survive if they win & Sheffield Wednesday win, scoring 12 more goals than Wednesday in the process, while also needing Rotherham to fail to win.
