And that’s it, Barnsley are back in the Championship. 3-1 victors over Millwall today.

90+3'

Time almost up as Millwall force a corner. In it comes and Davies claims. That should be that…

90+2'

Brownhill hacks clear for Barnsley under pressure from Morison and the whistles from the red fans have begun.

90+1'

Still it’s Barnsley with the possession and territory. No urgency from Millwall.

90' 

Just the four minutes of added time. Millwall need to score twice.

89' 

Toney’s shot deflected to Hammill and his shot blocked as Barnsley finish this match on the front foot.

88' 

All Barnsley this last ten minutes. Could easily be 4-1 up. Millwall just haven’t responded after getting back into the game.

87' 

Three waiting in the box for Barnsley but Winnall’s header misdirected. Barnsley could easily have had a penalty as Watkins clipped in the box.

86'

A good crowd in watching today's classic.

85' 

SAVE! Davies is there to parry Taylor’s shot in the box and he collects the ball on the rebound. Good keeping.

84'

Barnsley sub: Watkins on for Isgrove

83' 

Hammill keeping the ball very well but eventually loses out. Millwall break but O’Brien heads Morison’s cross well wide.

82'

CLOSE! In comes the Barnsley corner and Winnall scoops his shot over the bar. That would have sealed it.

81'

Another corner for Barnsley and they’re in no hurry to take it. Williams comes on for Edwards for Millwall.

80'

Barnsley sub: Fletcher comes off for Toney

79' 

A poor ball is latched onto by Isgrove but his cross is cut out and Millwall prevent conceding another corner. They just aren’t getting into the Barnsley half at the moment.

78'

The Lions have reached two previous play-off finals, both in League One - they lost 3-2 to Scunthorpe in 2009 before defeating Swindon 1-0 a year later.

77'
76' 

Just game management for Barnsley now. Will it be yet more play-off heartbreak for Millwall?

75'

Millwall sub: Thompson off to be replaced by Onyedinma

74' 

Lloyd Isgrove can scarcely believe it. The smallest man of the field with a headed goal and that could be crucial.

73'

GOAL BARNSLEY! Archer comes and gets nowhere near and Isgrove heads home his first goal for the club. What a time to get it!

72' 

Barnsley force another free kick. In it comes from Hammill and off the head of a Millwall defender for another corner.

71' 

Time for Millwall fans to start watching the clock. Twenty minutes to score a goal.

70' 

Barnsley force another corner to chants of ‘Come on you reds’. The referee calming down tempers fraying in the box. In it comes from Hammill but the whistle goes for a push in the box.

68'

Here's that Adam Hammill screamer.

67'
66' 

Morison skips around Davies and gets his cross into the box. A couple of failed clearances and Gregory slices his final shot.

64'

SHOTS: Barnsley 10-4 Millwall

63'

Foul by Roberts on Gregory and he goes into the book.

62'
61' 

Space opens up again for Hammill but this time his shot lacks power and accuracy and it’s easy for Archer.

60' 

An hour gone here and still Barnsley hanging onto that slender lead. Extra time if necessary.

59' 

Lovely play from Hammill, who twists and turns before digging out a cross to the far post but nobody there for Barnsley.

58' 

No clear chances as yet this half. The tension is clear as Winnall wins his side a corner.

57' 

Gregory almost gets through on goal but Davies very quickly out after the ball squirms through.

56' 

Hammill twists and turns but Edwards sticks with him and blocks his shot for a corner.

54' 

You sense that Barnsley could do with the security of a third. The longer it goes, Millwall will lay siege to their goal.

53' 

A lot of noise inside Wembley now. Both sets of fans making themselves heard. Header from Winnall lacks venom and Archer collects easily.

52'
50' 

A very poor ball from Hammill, meant for Fletcher but goes tamely behind for a goal kick.

49' 

Not quite the frantic start to the second half as the first, both sides realising the importance of the next goal. Barnsley force another corner.

48' 

No changes for either side at the break. O’Brien’s cross headed clear by Brownhill.

47' 

The next goal is absolutely crucial. Millwall with the momentum of scoring last and knowing they need another. Extra time and penalties if required. And I have a funny feeling that may just happen…

46'

Back underway here at Wembley and if the second half is anyway near as good as the first, we’re in for a cracker.

HALF TIME: Millwall 1 Barnsley 2

45+2'

Just too much on Ferguson’s ball meant for Gregory and Davies claims.

45' 

Indeed, there will be three added minutes as Roberts stabs the ball away under pressure.

44' 

Bound to be at least three minutes added as Barnsley win a free kick in the Millwall half.

-
43' 

Very unfortunate for Martin and he looks gutted. O’Brien a good substitute to bring on, though.

42'

Martin is struggling for Millwall. Looks like he jarred his knee. O’Brien coming on. Ferguson will move to left back.

41'
40' 

FIVE MINUTES TO HALF TIME: And it’s been an absolute cracker. Intense is the word.

38'
36' 

Another dangerous corner but the whistle goes for a foul by Craig on Mawson. Barnsley rocking slightly at the moment.

35' 

That goal from a former Barnsley season ticket holder has put them right back in this. All Millwall as they force another corner…

34'

GOAL MILLWALL! It’s smashed home from Barnsley boy Beevers after indecision in the box following the corner. First to react and a good turn and finish, rolling Roberts out of the way. Game on!

33' 

Now Mawson hoofs clear under pressure as Millwall start to ramp it up. A good response from the Lions.

32' 

Great challenge from Scowen on the edge of the box just as Taylor was about to pull the trigger. Excellent defending there.

31'
30'
28'

Well, replays show that was very late, studs straight into the shin just below the knee. That should have been a straight red card. Leg breaker.

27'

Taylor caught late by Williams and that is the first yellow card of the day.

26' 

Morison cutting a frustrated figure as he heads wide in the Barnsley box. Wasn’t a chance.

25' 

Barnsley all over Millwall at the moment and hunting what surely would be a killer third. Millwall must regroup quickly. A goal puts them right back in it.

-
24' 

Roberts hurls in a long thrown and Mawson gets on the end of it but heads well over the bar.

23'
22' 

Also a tricky decision for Barnsley. Do they keep playing this expansive football or try to go defensive and protect that lead?

20' 

A long, long way back for Millwall now. They must score next and preferably soon.

19'

GOAL BARNSLEY! And it’s an absolute stunner from Adam Hammill, who cuts in from the left before curling in an outstanding finish into the top corner.

18' 

Millwall have regrouped well and are pressing high up the pitch. They must beware of the swift Barnsley counter.

17' 

One thing looks certain even this early on. There are more goals in this match.

16' 

Dangerous cross from Martin finds Morison at the back but his header is cleared by Scowen.

15' 

Gregory almost latches onto a cross but it’s just too deep and Davies gathers.

14' 

CHANCE! Now Isgrove’s shot is blocked on the line as Barnsley go close to a second goal yet again. Millwall all over the place.

13'

CHANCE! No flag and Fletcher is through on the keeper. The angle is very tight, though and Archer makes the save.

12' 

Fletcher looking dangerous again and Archer has to be alert to get to the ball just before him.

11'
10' 

Morison trying to get Millwall going but his flick into the Barnsley box easily dealt with.

8' 

Hammill cuts inside onto his right foot but it’s neither a shot nor a cross and harmlessly out for a goal kick.

7'

Only inches in it as Fletcher flagged offside. Almost timed his run to perfection. Barnsley looking sharp early on.

6' 

Millwall on the counter through Taylor and well covered across from Isgrove. A frantic pace already.

5'

CHANCE! Barnsley carving their way through again and Hammill fires over the bar.

4'
3' 

Well what a start here. Millwall with the opening chance before Barnsley go ahead. Game on at Wembley.

2'

GOAL BARNSLEY! A wonderful finish from Ashley Fletcher, who turns beautifully on the edge of the box before firing into the far corner. What a start.

2'

CLOSE! In it comes from Taylor and Beevers leaps at the far post and heads just wide!

2' 

Today’s referee is Stuart Atwell. Millwall have set up 4-4-2 with Gregory and Morison up front. A decent, if fairly sparse crowd in good cheer. Ferguson felled by Scowen and Millwall have a dangerous free kick.

1'

KICK-OFF! We’re underway here at Wembley and the conditions are perfect for free-flowing football. Tough one to call, this.

14.55

BREAKING NEWS!

The Lions have reached two previous play-off finals, both in League One - they lost 3-2 to Scunthorpe in 2009 before defeating Swindon 1-0 a year later.

14.25
14.20

Barnsley have reached two previous play-off finals, losing in 2000 against Ipswich in the second tier but beating Swansea on penalties in League One in 2006 after a 2-2 draw.

14.15

Neil Harris (via BBC Radio London): "We are confident but not arrogant. We have a tough opposition and a difficult game but we are in the final on merit. Wigan and Burton deserve to go up but in performances and the points gained, we and Barnsley may be the top two sides since the turn of the year. Barnsley played at Wembley this year but they didn't play against Millwall or in front of our fans there. We have come a long way but to be a success, the season is now defined in one game. We have to perform."

14.10

And here's the Barnsley team for today.

14.05

Paul Heckingbottom (via BBC): "We have a group who are young, they're athletic and fit, so we play with pace and we play to their strengths. We try to use their strength, so the minimum is the opposition has to match us, and now the belief that when they apply themselves and make good decisions, they are a force."

And here is the Millwall team for today.
