  4. Police statement on reports of crowd problems

    There have been reports of a small number of supporters in the Millwall section getting past police and stewards and confronting a number of Barnsley fans inside Wembley.

    The Metropolitan Police said: "At approximately 16:35 on Sunday 29 May during the League One play-off final between Millwall and Barnsley at Wembley an altercation between a small number of fans occurred.

    "No arrests have been made at this stage and enquiries continue.

    "The Metropolitan Police Service will conduct a review and will liaise with the Football Association and the two clubs involved to identify those responsible and where necessary take the appropriate action."

    A spokesman for Millwall FC said the club deplored the actions of a small minority of its fans during the second-half of Sunday's League One play-off final.

    He added: "Such behaviour is unacceptable and anyone found guilty of disorder will face life bans from the football club."

  7. Paul Heckingbottom's future

    FT: Barnsley 3 - 1 Millwall

    He's led Barnsley to two Wembley victories this season - but he's still only the caretaker.

    However, it appears that Paul Heckingbottom's future is secure.

    Barnsley owner Patrick Cryne has told BBC Radio Sheffield the job is his - if he wants it!

    I think it's safe to assume he does!

    So Barnsley are back in the Championship and will face Newcastle, Aston Villa, Leeds and co. in the second tier next season.

    Two wins at Wembley in eight weeks? What greedy Tykes, eh?

    Thanks for your company during a game which Millwall will look to learn from ahead of next season in League One.

    I now hand you back to Trevor Gibbons for more reaction to a fascinating final.

  18. Barnsley promoted to Championship

    FT: Barnsley 3-1 Millwall

    Millwall boss Neil Harris tells Sky Sports: "What we've achieved was unexpected at the start of the season. There's huge disappointment - we just couldn't finish it off today.

    "Congratulations to Barnsley. The chances we made, we didn't put in the net. That was the difference today.

    "Next year, we've got to be better."

    Neil Harris
  19. Barnsley promoted to Championship

    FT: Barnsley 3-1 Millwall

    Barnsley interim manager Paul Heckingbottom tells Sky Sports: "We were trying our best to have a really quick, positive start. Byron Webster being out probably helped us a little bit.

    "This is bigger (than the JPT final). The players know that. The party and everything that comes with it will be that much better.

    "The best bit about everything I've been doing is seeing these celebrations."

    And on his future at the club: "Everyone is this stadium knows I'm a Barnsley fan."

  20. Webster injury affected Millwall - Harris

    FT: Barnsley 3-1 Millwall

    Millwall lost defender Byron Webster to injury in the warm-up - here's what manager Neil Harris has had to say about it on Sky Sports:

    "It affected us mentally before the game. You try to paper over it but we worked all work on our gameplan and it all sort of goes out of the way in the warm-up.

    "It's a learning curve for me and certainly our players. I'll learn from it myself and we'll come back stronger next year."
