Play-Off Preview

Play-Off Preview

LEAGUE ONE

Gillingham vs Shrewsbury

Will Gillingham be able to revenge their seven nil defeat they suffered to the Shrews earlier in the season? Shrewsbury will be relying on the firepower of Grant Holt to take them into League One and a local derby against Walsall. Gillingham have only suffered five defeats since the turn of the year while after starting excellency the Shrews have struggled late season to even make the play offs.

VERDICT
Consistency to reign and the Gills to return to League One at the first time of asking.


LEAGUE TWO

Scunthorpe United vs Millwall

A tale of David vs Goliath as for the second time this season Scunthorpe will be heavily outnumbered at Wembley. Scunthorpe scrapped into the play-offs with a late equaliser against Tranmere and rode their luck against the MK Dons. They will most likely be missing the goals for Gary Hooper. Millwall have been up and around the top four all season and deserve their chance at Wembley.

VERDICT
Scunthorpe once again to fail at the Home Of Football. Millwall will pull through by an odd goal and the scorer is most likely to be Millwall Legend Neil Harris.


CHAMPIONSHIP

Burnley vs Sheffield Unite

Burnley must have played the most games this season by a country mile due to excellent runs in the League and FA CUP though the seemed to have only got stronger as the season has gone on. But Kevin Blackwell has assembled a strong powerful Blades team which only seems to have grown as a team when they stopped relying on the goals of James Beattie.

VERDICT
Sheffield United finally found justice with the Carloz Tevez saga - well I predict that money will come in handy in assembling a team to survive in the Premiership. Burnley are the Nearly Boys as they just missed out on the League Cup Final. Blades to win by two goals to nil.
