Sheffield Wednesday in Skybet Championship Playoff Finals

Sheffield Wednesday has qualified for the Championship Play-off Finals and are now 90 minutes away from promotion to the Premier League for next season. After a convincing home win (2-0) against Brighton & Hove Albion in the first leg, Carlos Carvalhal's men confirmed their superiority over the two legs by drawing the away game (1-1).

The "Carvalhal effect" saw the Portuguese coach take the historic club to the 6th place in the Skybet Championship, with a serious chance of returning to the top flight of English football for the first time since 2000. Players such as Lucas João, Fernando Forestieri or Barry Bannan provide an attacking flair to the side.

The SkyBet Championship Playoff Finals take place at Wembley on Saturday 28th May. Sheffield Wednesday will face the winner of the other semifinal between Derby County and Hull City.
