2019/20 Sky Bet Championship now complete

Derby County final side confirmed in next season's second tier

28 May 2019

Derby County's 2-1 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa in Monday's Sky Bet Championship Play-Off final means it is The Rams who take the 24th and final spot in the second tier for the 2019/20 season. Frank Lampard's side fell behind to an Anwar El Ghazi goal five minutes before the break with John McGinn doubling Villa's advantage on the hour. 

Martyn Waghorn pulled one back inside the final ten minutes but, despite seven minutes of added time, Dean Smith's side held on to return to the top flight after a three-year absence. 

Brentford ended the 2018/19 Championship season 11th in the table, securing a top half finish for the fifth year in a row. The Bees will, for the sixth season in succession, be in the second tier next season and the last season of football at Griffin Park will be with Brentford as a Championship side.
