In the Championship, Derby County will play Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, after County thrashed Brighton 4-1 last Sunday to reach the final over two legs, by a 6-2 scoreline.

QPR made the final after beating Wigan Athletic 2-1 at Loftus Road on Monday evening, with Charlie Austin grabbing both goals.

County will be arguably the favourites going into the Wembley fixture, having finished third in the regular season.

In League One, Leyton Orient will face Rotherham United on the Sunday, having overcome Peterborough United 2-1 at Brisbane Road.

Chris Dagnall scored the winner as Russell Slade’s men reached Wembley, and now have the chance to go up to the second tier, having just missed out on automatic promotion themselves.

They will come up against the surprise package, Rotherham, who are looking to secure back to back promotion, in a superb season for Steve Evans side.

Rotherham beat Preston 3-1 at the New York Stadium on Thursday, coming through 4-2 over two legs.

And finally in League Two, Fleetwood and Burton will go head to head for a place in League One.

Fleetwood reached Wembley following a tense 0-0 draw against York at Friday at Highbury, coming through 1-0 over the two legs, following Matty Blair’s goal in the previous encounter.

Alexander’s side will now be looking for an iconic sixth promotion in 10 years.

However, following their amazing rise, they will come up against Burton Albion.

Albion came through over two legs against an unfortunate Southend side, with the League Two final taking place next Monday.
