How to watch Championship Playoff Final

It’s third place versus fifth place for the right to go to the Premier League when the richest game in sports takes center stage on Saturday.

Luton Town meets Coventry City on Saturday as we learn whether there will be Hatters or Sky Blues in the 2023-24 Premier League season.

Coventry has been gone from the Premier League since being relegated at the end of the 2000-01 season, while Luton Town has not been in the top flight since before the Premier League era.

In 2018, Luton and Coventry were both in the fourth-tier of English football. Now they are both one win away from the Premier League.

So, yeah, the craziness of English football extends beyond the Premier League.

Luton Town finished beating Sunderland over two legs, trailing 2-1 after the away 90 minutes, while Coventry scored the only goal of its tie with Middlesbrough in the second leg at the Riverside Stadium.

The managers and star players

Luton Town boss Rob Edwards left rival club Watford in November and the risky maneuver has paid off for the coach and club. Viktor Gyokeres is the club’s 21-goal scoring hero and he chipped in 11 assists as well, and Gustavo Hamer has been sensational as well.

Coventry City manager Mark Robins has been with the club since 2017 and it’s been up-up-up. Carlton Morris leads the way with 20 goals, while Alfie Doughty and Tom Lockyer have been key players, too, with Lockyer scoring in three of the Hatters’ last four matches.
