Norwich City promotion party delay as Canaries' bus breaks down

Norwich City promotion party delay as Canaries' bus breaks down

Leeds' bid for promotion rests on a semi-final clash with Derby after the final Championship table set them up for an engrossing battle in the play-offs.

Leeds United slipped away from the two automatic promotion places in the Championship at the start of the month, with Norwich and Sheffield United confirming their departure from the second tier.

The first legs of the play-off semi-finals take place on Saturday, with the final at Wembley on May 27.

Grealish has been in excellent form since returning from injury 11 games ago, netting four goals and being the main creative force in a team that has scored 24 goals during that period.

Bielsa played down prior meetings between the clubs, saying: "I don't think the games we played against Derby are decisive".

However they still had the advantage over their rivals Bristol City and Middlesbrough going into their final match of the season though they faced tough opposition in the shape of West Bromwich Albion, a team that had already confirmed their place in the play-offs. Lawrence then jinked his way into the area only to be felled by Kyle Bartley, and Harry Wilson buried the penalty kick in the bottom-left corner of the net before Baggies substitute Hal Robson-Kanu was sent-off for kicking out at Bradley Johnson.

The relegated sides are Rotherham, Bolton and Ipswich.

The bus was created to celebrate their Championship success and emblazoned with the phrase "We Are Premier League".
