Football League Finale

Football League Finale

So it's the final day in League One and League Two today, and Wednesday will be some way to knowing their opposition for the 2010-11 campaign following today's results.

We already know that Norwich City are promoted as champions from League One and will be changing places with us next season - bouncing back at the first time of asking is something Alan Irvine and his men will be keen to follow.

But we're yet to know who'll join them as League One prepares for a nail-biting final day.

Five teams are in with a shot of stealing the second automatic place from the division, with Leeds United leading the way as they go into a home clash against Bristol Rovers.

A victory for Leeds will see them promoted, regardless of results elsewhere.

But a slip up by Simon Grayson's men could open the door for Millwall and Swindon Town to go up, who both play each other today and trail Leeds by just a point.

Charlton Athletic, too, are in with a shout of promotion today when they travel to Oldham Athletic looking for nothing other than a win, a win which would see them go up in Millwall and Swindon draw and Leeds lose.

Finally, Huddersfield Town are also in with the longest shot of all, they need Swindon and Millwall to draw and both Leeds and Charlton to lose, as well as winning by a big margin at Exeter.

Stockport County, Wycombe Wanderers and Southend United are already relegated.

And Tranmere Rovers, Exeter, Hartlepool United - who've been slapped by a three-point penalty after playing an ineligible player - and Gillingham are fighting for their League One status.

Joining the Owls from League Two will be Notts County, Bournemouth and Rochdale - who've all secured promotion automatically going into the final day.

Rotherham United and Aldershot will definitely be included in the play-offs but any of Morecambe, Dag & Red, Bury, Port Vale, Chesterfield and Northampton could be alongside them.
