Huddersfield Town face Sheffield Wednesday at the John Smith's Stadium today in the first leg of their play-off semi-final.

The match has been described as the "biggest in recent history" by both David Wagner and Dean Hoyle and the atmosphere building around Town has been palpable all week.

Finally the day has come and we all wait with baited breath to see what will unfold in the West Yorkshire sunshine today.

In the other semi-final, Fulham and Reading drew 1-1 at Craven Cottage last night so as yet there has been no real indication of who Town would face in the final - should they beat the Owls over two legs this week.

Here we will bring you all the pre-match news, live action, comment and analysis with Rory Benson.
