Following the Sky Bet Championship and Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off Finals, the Terriers now know which 23 teams will join them in the second tier of English football.

Barnsley

The Tykes finished second in the Sky Bet League 1 table during the 2018/19 campaign finishing with 91 points from 46 games.

Managed by Garry Monk, Birmingham City finished 17th in the Sky Bet Championship last season.

Charlton Athletic

Charlton Athletic was promoted back to the Sky Bet Championship after a late, dramatic Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off Final winner against Sunderland.

This is the Addicks’ first return to the second-tier since the 2015/16 campaign, meaning Karlan Grant could face his former side during the upcoming season.

Derby County

Frank Lampard’s Derby County was denied a return to the top-flight after losing 2-1 to Aston Villa in the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final.

The Rams beat Leeds United in the Semi-Finals before being beaten at Wembley. This game could see left-back Scott Malone return to the John Smith’s Stadium.

Fulham

Winger Jarrod Bowen was the stand-out player for the Tigers, picking up both the Player of the Year prizes.

Leeds then faced Derby County in the Play-Off Semi-Final but lost 4-3 on aggregate to the Rams.

Luton Town

Sky Bet League 1 table toppers Luton Town has been promoted to the Sky Bet Championship for the first time since the 2006/07 season.

Neil Harris’ side finished with 44 points from 46 games. However, the Club reached the Quarter Finals of the Emirates FA Cup, losing to Brighton & Hove Albion on penalties.

Nottingham Forest

Former Town winger Joe Lolley was one of Forest’s stand-out players during the 2018/19 campaign as the Club finished ninth.

The winger scored 12 goals and set up 11 for his teammates. Fans’ favourite Michael Hefele is also on the books at Nottingham Forest, although he has missed a large part of the campaign through injury.

Like Middlesbrough, Swansea City is also on the hunt for a new Manager after Graham Potter left the Club to join Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion.

During his year in charge at the Swans, he took the Club to 10th in the Sky Bet Championship table, ending the season without defeat in five games.

West Bromwich Albion

West Bromwich Albion was beaten by Aston Villa in the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Semi-Finals.
