Our man at Wembley Jay Jaffa on the atmosphere ahead of the Championship play-off final:

"I might be sitting closer to the Middlesbrough fans than the Norwich lot but the Teesiders are noticeably louder and vibrant as we approach kick-off at Wembley for the Championship play-off final. In fact, it's deafening. Visually the stadium looks stunning, too; a sea of yellow to my left, red and white to my right. The prize for promotion? Estimated at a cool £130 million..."

Leicester City's unlikely bid to beat the drop started at West Ham the week before but Jamie Vardy's late winner against West Brom kept the wheels in motion. Darren Fletcher and Gary Gardner gave the Baggies an early 2-1 lead but Robert Huth levelled matters with 10 minutes to go. Then, as the game entered stoppage time, Vardy slotted home to spark wild scenes in the away end.
