As Hull and Sheffield Wednesday prepare to do battle for a place in the Premier League, we bring you the ultimate guide to the Sky Bet Championship play-off final - live on Sky Sports. Saturdays Wembley showdown has been billed as the £170m match with a spot among Englands elite, as well as unrivalled riches, waiting for the victor at the end of the 90 minutes or more.Steve Bruces Tigers will be looking for an instant return to the Premier League after being relegated at the end of the 2014/15 season while Carlos Carvalhals Owls have been absent from the top flight since the 1999/00 campaign. So how did they make it to Wembley, who is available for the game and what does Sky Sports Football League expert Ian Holloway have to say? Read on to find out...How did they get here?The two sides had differing seasons, with Hull sitting pretty in the automatic places until as late as February before slipping into the play-off spots while Sheffield Wednesday surged into sixth and held off the likes of Cardiff and Ipswich to seal sixth place and a shot at promotion. Andrew Robertson, Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone celebrate after the first-leg at the iPro Stadium. The Tigers faced Derby in their semi-final and stormed into a 3-0 lead during the first leg at the iPro Stadium with goals from Abel Hernandez, Andrew Robertson and a Jason Shackell own goal. And though the Rams came storming back into the tie at the KC Stadium, taking a 2-0 half-time lead after Johnny Russell and Robertsons own goal, they failed to find an elusive third. Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-final second leg between Hull City and Derby County. It was a similar story for Wednesday, who dominated Brighton in the first leg thanks to great strikes from Ross Wallace and Kieran Lee but were given a scare early on by their opponents during the return fixture at the Amex Stadium. Ross Wallace set Sheffield Wednesday en route to victory against Brighton The Seagulls controlled the opening period but though Lewis Dunk finally pulled one back to raise hopes of a fightback, Wallace restored Wednesdays two-goal aggregate cushion nine minutes later and it proved enough. Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-final second leg between Brighton and Sheffield Wednesday. Play-off previous Hulls last play-off appearance came in the 2007/08 season where they were promoted to the Premier League following a 1-0 victory over Bristol City at Wembley after Tigers legend Dean Windass scored his now-famous 38th minute volley. Highlights of the 2008 Championship play-off final between Bristol City and Hull. Prior to that, Hull had lost in the 2001/02 Division Three play-off semi-final to Leyton Orient, but will be making their fourth visit to Wembley in the last eight years - their last being the 3-2 FA Cup final defeat against Arsenal in May 2014.Sheffield Wednesday are yet to play at the new Wembley, but are unbeaten in their last five appearances in the play-offs. Their previous campaign came in the 2004/05 season where they were promoted to the Championship after beating Hartlepool 4-2 in the League One play-off final at Cardiffs Millennium Stadium. Head-to-headThese two could not be separated in the regular season, with both league meetings ending level. The sides drew 1-1 at Hillsborough in October with star strikers Fernando Forestieri and Abel Hernandez on the scoresheet - the latter accidentally injuring referee Keith Stroud - while the reverse fixture at the KC Stadium produced a stalemate.Saturday will see the 50th meeting between Hull and Sheffield Wednesday and the Owls edge the overall record, winning 20 games to the Tigers 11, with 18 draws. Highlights of the Championship play-off semi-final first leg between Derby and Hull at the iPro Stadium. The managersSteve Bruce could become the first ever manager to win four promotions to the Premier League, having previously done so twice with Birmingham - once via the play-offs - and having steered Hull to automatic promotion at the end of his first season in charge in 2013.But the former Manchester defender is sure his own experience - and that of his players over the last few seasons - will stand them in good stead. Steve Bruce could win promotion for the fourth time in his managerial career - more than anyone else. Ive been fortunate, near enough to 1,000 (games) as a player and something like 800 as a manager and in among that lot Ive had a few big games, Bruce said.Weve got a squad that has been there (Wembley) before in the last couple of years; lets hope thats a bit of an advantage. Weve got some good players and lets hope we can achieve what we want to achieve.That is in stark contrast to Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal - whom Bruce admitted he had not heard of ahead of his appointment in June 2015 - but the Owls boss has had play-off success in his homeland, winning promotion to the Portuguese top flight with Vitoria Setubal in 2003/04. Sheffield Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal was relatively unknown when he arrived at Hillsborough. Carvalhal has certainly made himself known after a stellar season with the Owls and has - in his own words - awoken the giant. We have achieved something. I remember we was in 19th in the league, so we have grown together - me, the staff, the owner and the fans like a team, Carvalhal said after the semi-final second leg.The self-confidence of the club is much higher this season. The club was sleeping and we have woken up the giant. The final is something that we deserve but its not finished yet.Team newsBruce has confirmed goalkeeper Allan McGregor (back) will not recover in time to feature with Eldin Jakupovic the man to take his place, but every other outfield player is fit and in contention.Manchester United loanee Nick Powell remains an absentee due to a thigh problem with David Meyler, Sam Clucas, Harry Maguire and Arsenal loanee Chuba Akpom among those pushing for recalls to the starting line-up. Eldin Jakupovic is set to start between the posts for Hull Carvalhal says his players are fresh and ready to go - but the Owls boss faces a midfield dilemma.Alex Lopez partnered Kieran Lee at the Amex but was substituted at half-time in the second leg, with Sam Hutchinson catching the eye. On loan Aiden McGeady has been deemed surplus to requirements and has already met up with the Republic of Ireland squad to begin preparations for Euro 2016.Ian Holloways key menHull City - Moses Odubajo Moses Odubajo is Hull Citys key man, according to Ollie He was sensational in the first-leg against Derby and is progressing into a top-class attacking full-back. He reminds me of Seamus Coleman, who I had at Blackpool. The way he flies up and down the wing will give Sheffield Wednesday all sorts of problems.Sheffield Wednesday - Fernando Forestieri Fernando Forestieri could be key for Sheffield Wednesday, thinks Ian Holloway He links the play between midfield and attack. Hes so crucial to the way Sheffield Wednesday play. Theres so much talent in his boots - Premier League level. I cant believe Watford let him go. Ive thoroughly enjoyed watching him play this season and the crowd love him. Its a match made in heaven.Match stats Sheffield Wednesday players celebrate after the Sky Bet Championship Play Off semi final at Brighton. It is the first time the second tier play-off final has been contested by two Yorkshire clubs.It is 5,859 days since Sheffield Wednesdays last Premier League game - a 4-0 final day win v Leicester at Hillsborough on May 14, 2000 (relegation had been confirmed in the previous game).Hull go into the game having won five of their last eight games (D1 L2).Sheffield Wednesdays only defeat in last seven games was 2-1 to Wolves on the Championships final day, having made 10 changes from their previous game.Sheffield Wednesday are making their first appearance at Wembley since the 92-93 season, when they played at the stadium on four occasions (W1 D1 L2), including losing both the League Cup and FA Cup finals to Arsenal.BettingHull are 5/4 favourites with Football League sponsor Sky Bet to secure promotion within 90 minutes as Sheffield Wednesday are rated 12/5 outsiders, while the clash is 21/10 to go to added time. With both league meetings ending in draws, promotion to be settled in extra-time is a 6/1 chance while a penalty shoot-out is considered a real possibility at 7/2.Abel Hernandez, who has four goals from his last five appearances, heads the first goalscorer betting at 4/1 while Fernando Forestieri and Gary Hooper are considered the Owls main threats at 6/1 apieceOllies verdictWill it be the experience and strength in depth that Hull City have in abundance that will shine on the day or will it be the surprise package in Sheffield Wednesday, who have a little bit more flair about them? I cant wait to find out. Its going to be a fascinating game. Sheffield Wednesdays Ross Wallace celebrates scoring the opening goal against Brighton at Hillsborough. Ive just got a sneaky feeling Wednesday, who believe theyre on the way back, will be celebrating in the Wembley sunshine on Saturday after a dramatic extra-time victory.

Something needs to change because were a better team than what were showing right now. Its a long season and we just need to continue to push." Its been a frustrating week for the ballclub.CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Al Jefferson knows few people will be giving the Charlotte Bobcats a chance to upset the Miami Heat in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. That doesnt matter to the veteran centre. "They didnt give us a chance in October, if you remember," Jefferson said. "We were going to be last in the league, right? So we dont worry about what is said outside of these walls right here." The Bobcats defeated the Chicago Bulls 91-86 in overtime on Wednesday night to finish the season 43-39 and as the seventh seed in the East. Not bad for a team that was a combined 28-120 over the previous two seasons. But now there is the monumental task of beating the two-time defending NBA champions, something the Bobcats havent done in the LeBron James era. The Heat are 15-0 against the Bobcats since James signed. "Its going to be a challenge, but its the playoffs and anything can happen," Bobcats guard Kemba Walker said. "Its not going to be easy. Were going to go out there and give it all we got just like we have been doing all year." The series starts on Sunday. "Its going to be a dogfight," Jefferson said. The Bulls finished as the No. 4 seed in the East and will face the Washington in the first round after the Wizards leap-frogged the Brooklyn Nets on the final night of the season to grab the fifth spot. "They are a great transition team with a lot of shooters and size," Bulls forward Carlos Boozer said. "To make the playoffs you have to be a good team, and theyre a good team." After missing a jumper that would have won the game in regulation, Walker scored eight of his 22 points in overtime to help the Bobcats beat the Bulls for the first time this season and finish the regular season with eight wins in their final nine games. Jefferson added 10 points and 18 rebounds for Charlotte, and Chris Douglas-Roberts finished with 13 points after being held scoreless for the first three quarters. Josh McRoberts made a key play in overtime, his block of D.J. Augustins 3-point attempt leading to a fast-break layup by Walker that gave the Bobcats an 888-81 lead with 1 minute left.dddddddddddd "This was the type of game we needed going into the playoffs," Jefferson said. "Thats a playoff team and thats a playoff game that we played tonight." Joakim Noah finished with 14 points and 13 rebounds for Chicago, Boozer added 14 points and 11 rebounds, and Augustin scored 17 points. The Bulls came in having won 10 of their last 11 against the Bobcats, including five straight in Charlotte by an average of 22 points per game. And it looked early on like this would be another road blowout for Michael Jordans former team. The Bobcats started the game cold, missing 21 of their first 29 shots from the field to fall behind 33-23. But Jefferson hit a short jumper and the Bobcats made 11 straight shots to take 43-37 lead at halftime. After a back-and-forth third quarter, the Bulls entered the final period leading 60-59. Every time Chicago attempted to pull away, Douglas-Roberts seemed to have an answer. Two nights after a buzzer-beater to sink the Atlanta Hawks, Douglas-Roberts had 12 points in the fourth period, including a left-handed layup off an offensive rebound with 3:42 left to tie the game at 75. After Taj Gibson missed a jumper with 25 seconds left, Walker had a chance to win the game but missed an open step-back jumper from 18 feet at the buzzer. "I had a great look at it," Walker said. "Just missed it." Walkers big overtime helped the Bobcats improve to 20-9 since the All-Star break. "The guys have done a great job," Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said. "We wont think about it right now, but when we reflect back on the year we will. We didnt have a definitive number because I didnt know how good we could be. Its a good group and hopefully we have a lot more in us. It was good to see the locker room tonight. Theyve worked hard. Theyve been grinding from the jump." NOTES: Jefferson was taken to the locker room for observations with a left knee contusion midway through the third quarter. He did return to the game and played the entire fourth quarter. ... With the win, the Bobcats avoided a season series sweep by the Bulls.
