Another Championship season has come and gone, with Bournemouth crowned champions on the final day of the season as they won 3-0 at Charlton Athletic and saw Watford concede a last-minute equaliser to Sheffield Wednesday through Adthe Nuhiu to seal the title.

As Huddersfield Town's season finale at Blackpool was abandoned following a pitch invasion from the home fans, the results elsewhere saw Brentford climb into the play-offs on the final day at the expense of Derby County, who dropped to eighth with a last-day 3-0 home defeat to Reading.

Norwich City secured third spot with a 4-2 victory over Fulham, while Middlesbrough had to settle for fourth after drawing 0-0 with Brighton and Hove Albion as Ipswich Town squeezed into sixth despite 3-2 defeat at Ipswich Town.

It means there will be an East Anglian derby in the play-offs, with Boro meeting Mark Warburton's Bees side in the other game, as he looks to mastermind promotion to the top flight before his planned exit this summer.

While the season may be over, although perhaps not quite in the respective cases of Town and Blackpool, there is still plenty of news to report from around the division as clubs gear up for the upcoming close-season transfer window.
