Two EFL Championship playoff places are up for grabs on the final day of the 2021/22 season in the reliably engrossing second tier of English football.
After 45 matches, Sheffield United and Luton Town occupy the fifth and sixth in the table, with seventh-placed Middlesbrough and Millwall in eighth bidding to keep alive their chances of playing Premier League football next season.

EFL Championship live updates, highlights
One hour before KO: Sheffield United finished bottom of the Premier League last season, enduring a dismal campaign that included the departure of Blades fan and current Middlesbrough boss Chris Wilder.
United manager Paul Heckingbottom was interim boss before the doomed appointment in May of Slavisa Jokanovic, who lasted less than six months at Bramall Lane.
Heckingbottom’s players recovered from a goal down at half-time to win 3-1 at QPR last week. That means a draw at home to Fulham today should secure them a playoff spot unless Luton and Middlesbrough both win. Victory would guarantee them fifth place and a semifinal against Huddersfield.
