Wembley set for all-South Yorkshire showdown

19 May 2023

After booking their place at Wembley this evening, Barnsley will meet Sheffield Wednesday in the Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final.

Earlier this evening, Michael Duff's side secured a 1-0 win over Bolton Wanderers in the second leg of the Semi-Final tp progress 2-1 on aggregate.

Liam Kitching's goal was the difference as Barnsley edged past the Trotters, with the two teams heading into the tie level after drawing 1-1 in the first leg.

They join Sheffield Wednesday under the arch after the Owls completed a remarkable turnaround at Hillsborough last night, overturning a 4-0 deficit to draw 5-5 on aggregate with Peterborough United and eventually win 5-3 in a tense penalty shootoout.

The Final takes place on Monday 29 May when a South Yorkshire derby will decide who takes the third and final promotion spot to the Championship.
