The team I have an ownership stake in finished 2 places out of the playoffs on 70 points this season. Hopefully a good building season to push further next season.

Luton 1-1 Huddersfield
Sheffield 1-2 Forest

Sheffield scored late to keep it alive, but Forest would still have to be favourites to go through being at home in the second leg.

Forest easily created enough chances to win by 3 or 4.
Sheffield barely landed a punch at home and lucky to get a late goal.
I watched the first half and there was a 15 minute period late in the first half where there was about 3 or 4 instances where I could not believe they did not put at least two or three goals past the United goalkeeper. United were incredibly lucky not to be 3 or 4 down at halftime.

Northampton lost their first leg 2-1 in the semi-final play-off v Mansfield Town :straining:

since they've been so bitter about how crap we are, it would be fantastic to see them miss out.

As much as I hate Forest, I'd genuinely love to have a proper rival to play again.

To think there's a chance that there'll be no Forest or Derby in the Championship next season is crazy - considering how long both have been there.

Who'd be the new longest serving - Preston? Or Milwall?

Definitely Forest currently but after a quick look I couldn't find an easy answer.

For some reason I thought Millwall were in League One not that long ago but I could be wrong

You might be right, I thought Milwall had been in the league uninterrupted since at least 2010/11 (since I went to a Hull-Milwall game then) but could be wrong.

If it's not them I'd think it's definitely Preston.

Millwall were relegated in 14/15.

I'd say Preston are probably it then. Bristol City have been around for a while as well I think.

Pretty sure Millwall got relegated to League 1 5 years ago or so and then came back up .

Preston got promoted in 2015. Birmingham have been there since 2011 and Blackburn 2012.

duck me, what a cowardly prick.

Billy Sharp is one of the nicest guys around as well. Not that it should make any difference.

Disgraceful act. Gutless pig.

What a performance by Samba. Was the difference.

That early save to deny Ndiaye and the late one were huge. Penalties was the fair result in the end, Forest should've buried them in the first leg, but Sheffield were the better side in this leg.

And the campaigner in the yellow jacket is a gutless coward. Just as bad as the Brummie prick who hit Grealish from behind a few seasons back.

i saw the late save and I thought for sure they were going to score there. Was terrific in the penalties as well.

Forest going up would give Leicester a genuine rivalry other than just a one-way hatred from Spurs.
