Coventry City and Luton Town are one game away from the Premier League as they meet in the Championship play-off final.

Each side has fought back from times of strife to leave themselves on the verge of promotion after edging out Sunderland and Middlesbrough respectively in the semi-finals.

Coventry were last in the English top flight in 2001, and have endured an eventful season that included another forced relocation due to stadium conflicts at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Their opponents, meanwhile, are hoping to earn their first elevation to the Premier League, having been relegated out of the top tier in the season before it rebranded in 1992.

Here’s everything you need to know.

When is the Championship play-off final?

Team news

Gustavo Hamer has trained with the Coventry squad this week and appears likely to be fit after his decisive semi-final role. Tyler Walker remains absent with an undisclosed injury, but Casey Palmer has made an ahead-of-schedule return to training after initially being ruled out for the remainder of the season. His recovery from a hamstring issue could still force him out of the game.

Luton would appear to be in good health and could well name an unchanged side from the semi-final second leg.

Coventry City XI: Wilson; McNally, McFadzean, Doyle; Norton-Cuffy, Allen, Kelly, Hamer, Bidwell; Sheaf; Gyokeres.
