The last day of the Championship regular season, played this Monday afternoon across the Channel, kept all its promises. While Burnley was already guaranteed to be champion, Sheffield to be the second directly promoted in the Premier League and Luton and Middlesbrough to play in the play-offs, the last two tickets for the accession play-offs have been hotly contested, until at the end.
It was finally Coventry, author of a draw on the lawn of Middlesbrough (1-1), and Sunderland, wide winner of Preston (3-0), who obtained these final precious sesames. On the losing side, West Brom, who could still hope to p***, were upset by Swansea (2-3), while Millwall, after leading 3-1 and being virtually qualified, were knocked down by Blackburn (4- 3), which fails to nothing.
The play-off halves will oppose Sunderland to Luton and Coventry to Middlesbrough, in a home and away format, from Saturday.
