For many the Bank Holiday weekend will be a time to wind-down and relax. Yet for #Football fans in England and Scotland it will be quite a different matter, with no less than four key play-off fixtures being determined. Scotland hosts the Premiership promotion semi-final decider between Hibernian and Rangers. In England, the play-off finals for the Championship, League One and League Two will all be concluded. With travel disruption expected due to Network Rail's 24-hour strike on Bank Holiday Monday, it could be a frenetic period both on the pitch for the players and off it for their supporters..
Middlesbrough v Norwich City (Monday, 3pm)
The two sides occupied the 3rd and 4th positions in the regular season, so in some senses their opportunity to contest the final promotion place seems fair. Boro will probably fancy their chances against the Canaries after defeating them twice already this season and cruising past Brentford in the semi-final.
Norwich will be seeking a return to the #Premier League after relegation during the 2013-14 season. City fans and players will have been buoyed by their victory over East Anglian rivals Ipswich Town to reach the final.
They will hope that manager Alex Neil can repeat the feat he engineered with Hamilton in last year's Scottish Premiership play-offs.
League One conclusion
Preston North End v Swindon Town (Sunday, 5:30pm)
Preston and Swindon occupied 3rd and 4th positions at the end of the season in League One. North End finished a mammoth 10 points better off than their rivals over the 46-match campaign though and just missed out on the second automatic promotion place to MK Dons. They looked convincing in beating Chesterfield 4-0 over the two-legged semi-final play-off, with Jermaine Beckford in particularly sharp form up front.
Swindon will need to tighten their defence after surviving a high scoring affair against Sheffield United 7-6 on aggregate. Few will forget their dramatic 5-5 draw in the second leg as they held on to reach the Wembley final.
They beat Preston at home in the league this campaign, but also endured a 3-0 away defeat to them in April.
League Two finale
Southend v Wycombe Wanderers (Saturday, 5:30pm)
Both sides were convincing semi-final winners, Southend defeating Stevenage 4-2 and Wycombe overcoming Plymouth 5-3 on aggregate. There was little to choose between the two sides in the normal season, as they both finished on 84 points and were only separated by Wycombe's superior goal difference.
It has been an amazing turnaround for Wycombe after narrowly avoiding the drop from the Football League in the previous season. They have had marginally the better of Southend in the league so far, winning at home and drawing away against them.
Scottish Premiership play-off semi-final 2nd leg
Hibernian v Rangers (Saturday, midday)
Motherwell await the winners of the semi-final between two clubs who probably feel that they rightly belong in the Premiership. Hibs were relegated from the Premiership just last season but finished as runners-up to local rivals (but runaway winners) Hearts in the Championship this term.
Rangers have been four seasons out of the top league, fighting their way back through the lower leagues. Both teams would increase average gates in the top division when (as expected) they finally do get promoted.The first leg at Ibrox will be played tonight, with Rangers looking to gain an advantage before Saturday's return leg at Hibs' Easter Road ground.
