Brighton or Sheffield Wednesday to win in the Championship play-off semi-final first leg on Friday at Hillsborough?

Then again, which is more than possible of course, it could be a draw!

A draw with Middlesbrough on Saturday meant Brighton had to be settle for third place, so we’ll have to come through the play-offs to join Burnley and Middlesbrough in the Premier League.

Sheffield Wednesday host the first leg of this semi-final tomorrow night with us having to quickly put the disappointment of that one-all draw (ordinarily a very good result at the Riverside Stadium, but we knew we had to win) behind us and go again.

We’ll do this without Dale Stephens though! His header had us level but four-minutes later he then saw red for a poor challenge on Gaston Ramirez so he’ll be suspended.

The fixtures are.

Friday 13th May 2016
Sheff Wed v Brighton 19:45

Saturday 14th May 2016
Derby v Hull 12:30

We’ll seek to end our 33-year spell outside of the topflight, starting in this 7:45pm kick-off on Friday, Wednesday will feel they’ve also got a great chance of returning to the topflight and will know our third place finish will leave us somewhat deflated.

It’s been and gone, we move on to this tie, which shouldn’t be won or lost in the first leg but the Albion aim will be to take an advantage back to the Amex Stadium with a win, at least a draw.

But will this happen?

Whatever the line up expectancy will be high and ahead of the game we’re looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which obviously requires you to vote in the latest poll one of three ways….

Brighton win
Sheffield Wednesday win
