Southampton to face Leeds in Championship play-off final

Southampton will battle Leeds United for the final promotion slot from the Championship.

This was confirmed after the Saints’ 3-1 win over West Brom on Friday night.

Following a goalless draw in the first leg, Southampton prevailed in the second leg at St Mary’s to reach Wembley.

Will Smallbone and Adam Armstrong’s double did the damage in the second half, as they blew the Baggies away late on to settle the semi-final tie.

Cedric Kipre headed in a final-minute consolation for the Baggies, who now face a third successive season in the second tier.

Southampton will face Leeds in the final on Sunday, May 26 with the winner securing promotion to next season’s Premier League.
