The finale of the League One season takes centre stage on Saturday as Bolton Wanderers take on Oxford United at Wembley for a place in the Championship.

Bolton finished third in the table during the regular season, five points behind second-placed Derby, and sealed their place in the final with a nervy 5-4 aggregate victory over Barnsley.

Oxford sealed their place in the play-offs thanks, in part, to defeats for Lincoln and Blackpool on the final day, but there was less fortune surrounding their semi-final performances as they edged past Peterborough 2-1 over two legs in the semi-finals.
