EFL League 1 and 2 Playoff reviews.

Thursday May 23, 2019

 This weekend four sets of hopeful fans make the trip to Wembley as promotion beckons!

 League 2 Playoff Final – Saturday 25th May, 3pm.

 Newport County v Tranmere Rovers

 Both of these teams were languishing in the Conference recently but playoff victories for both teams saw them promoted to League 2. These playoff victories and Wembley experience will give both teams confidence going into this match.

 Both finalists were the underdogs in the semi finalists with Tranmere finishing 6th on 73 points and Newport sneaked into the playoffs coming 7th with 71 points. Tranmere are slight favourites with the bookmakers at 6/4 with Newport 2/1 and the draw 2/1. These odds really do show how close this game will be. Newport managed a 1-0 victory over Tranmere at Prenton Park and the other match in the league was a 0-0 draw. 

 This game really will be difficult to call. If it is too close to call maybe best New Zealand casino could be looked at.


 League 1 Playoff Final – Sunday 26th May, 3pm

 Charlton Athletic v Sunderland

 Two ex-Premier League teams face in this final, both hoping to get back to the Championship and hopefully beyond. Both teams have a large fan base and the atmosphere at Wembley will be incredible.

 Charlton narrowly missed out on automatic promotion by 3 points despite gaining 88 points. They beat Doncaster in the semi final on penalties despite having 15 more points during the season. Sunderland managed 85 points and beat Portsmouth in the semi-final 1-0 over two legs in a very tight affair.

 Sunderland are slight favourites at 29/20 with Charlton 2/1 and the draw 21/10. As with all these playoff finals, the game is so close to call and one moment of skill or a single mistake could make the difference. Offers, information and promotions can be found at cansportsbetting.

 So come Monday morning, two sets of fans will be celebrating and looking forward to August and playing at that higher level and dreaming of back to back promotions!
