          EFL play-off finals settled as Newport edge thriller

          2021/05/23 21:51

          Newport County are off to Wembley despite losing 4-3 (aet) to Forest Green on Sunday in one of the most extraordinary play-off semi-final second legs ever.

          The Exiles, who entered the contest with a two-goal advantage from the first leg, needed extra-time to get through after Forest Green got back into the tie with a 4-2 win at the end of 90 minutes.

          With a penalty shootout looming, Nicky Maynard scored a dramatic late goal in the 119th minute to send the Welsh side to Wembley (6-5 on aggregate). 

          Newport will now face Morecambe in the League Two play-off final on Monday May 31 at 3pm, after the Shrimps booked their place at the Wembley showpiece with a 1-1 draw against Tranmere (which earned them a 3-2 aggregate win).

          In the Championship, Brentford and Swansea will face off in the Championship play-off final on Saturday May 29, again at Wembley (3pm kick off).

          The Bees secured their place after a drama-filled clash against Bournemouth at the Brentford Community Stadium yesterday, last season's losing play-off finalists coming from behind to earn a 3-1 win (3-2 on aggregate). The Swans, meanwhile, drew 1-1 with Barnsley to secure a 2-1 aggregate victory.

          In League One, Blackpool and Lincoln will clash in the League One play-off final on Sunday May 30, also at 3pm.

          Blackpool made it to the final after overcoming Oxford United 6-3 over two legs in their semi, while the Imps beat Sunderland 3-2 over their two-legged semi-final.
