Championship final day LIVE: Latest scores and goal updates as Sheffield United, Luton, Middlesbrough and Millwall face last day of 2021/22 season


The final day of the 2021/22 season in the Championship kicks off early on Saturday afternoon, with four clubs set to scrap it out over just two remaining play-off places.

We’ve already had confirmation that Bournemouth will be going back up to the Premier League after securing promotion, while Fulham are also back up after being crowned champions on Monday night with a 7-0 thrashing of Luton Town – who are one of the sides still hoping for a play-off place at the end of today. At the other end of the table, Barnsley, Peterborough and Derby County have all been relegated to League One. Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield are guaranteed a play-off place already, with just their final position to be determined.

Along with Luton, who sit sixth at the start of play, Sheffield United currently occupy one of the remaining and much-coveted spots. But behind them, Middlesbrough can sneak in with a victory if one of those two clubs slip up, while the outsiders are Millwall who need to win and have all three other results go their way. Follow all the latest goals and live action on the final day of the Championship season below:

Huddersfield looking good for third as they go 2-0 up against Bristol City through Danny Ward.

Luton looking in control of the game as we approach the interval, at home to Reading. A draw is perfectly fine for them to be in the play-offs, given Middlesbrough’s final-day dismal showing so far.

Stoke City 1-1 Coventry: Equalizer from Sam Clucas for the home side just before the break.

Some angry appeals from the Luton fans as Reading’s Holmes brings down his man on the edge of the box and the referee waves penalty appeals away.

As it stands we are now looking at one from Luton or Millwall for the final play-off place – it’s Luton’s to lose, but if they do lose here, Millwall need to win their own match to claim sixth on goal difference.

West Brom 2-0 Barnsley: Karlan Grant with a penalty and Adam Reach with the second.

Peterborough 1-0 Blackpool: Jonson Clarke-Harris with the opener there.

Looks like Middlesbrough are resigned to another season of Championship football – they are now 2-0 down to Preston with Daniel Johnson crossing and Dael Fry deflecting in the second just after the half-hour mark.

A couple of goals around the rest of the games to update you on:

Huddersfield are ahead at home to Bristol City thanks to Harry Tofolo, who as it stands sees them jump above Forest into third.

And John Buckley has put Blackburn ahead against Birmingham too.

Might have to reduce the number of Sheffield United updates we focus on at this rate – they are now 3-0 up against Fulham thanks to Sander Berge! No chance the Blades lose their play-off spot now, surely.

Not good news for Boro – Alan Browne has fired in a brilliant volley to put Preston ahead in that game!

That will leave Luton fans rather more happy, given those early missed chances at home to Reading.

Injury issue for Reading as Paul Ince watches on in concerned fashion from the sidelines.

It’s another one for the Blades and it might be fair to suggest Fulham are taking it easy today after winning the title.

Illiman Ndiaye has the second on 22 minutes, finishing after a Seri slip in midfield is ruthlessly punished.

All looking good for the Blades right now, though Kenny Tete has hammered an effort over the bar in response for Fulham.

It’s a little end-to-end between Preston and Boro too – a goal right now for the away side would put them above Luton on goal difference, remember.

Elsewhere: Coventry lead at Stoke, Gyoekeres with the goal.

Sheffield United are in front against the league champions Fulham!

A huge first strike of the day and it’s a 10th-minute goal for Morgan Gibbs-White.

A cross from the right is assumed in at the near post by the attacking midfielder.

Luton have already spurned two or three really good openings against Reading – an early goal here would surely settle some massive nerves and put them well in the driving seat for a play-off place.

No goals in the second tier anywhere in the 12 games, as we approach the 10-minute mark.

Worth remembering Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield’s results today will also determine the play-off semi-final fixtures.

Championship final day: Kick-off!

Underway at our four focus games! Luton and the Blades have it in their own hands – and a chance inside a minute almost sees Cameron Jerome put Luton ahead!

What a start that would have been.

5th – Sheffield United, 72pts
