2016-17 League One promotion odds - Who will win the play-off final?

The 2016-17 League One campaign has been highly competitive with Sheffield United and Bolton Wanderers having clinched automatic promotion to the Championship, while Bradford City are slight favourites to win the play-off final against Millwall.



Bolton Wanderers, Charlton Athletic and MK Dons suffered relegation from the Championship last season and only the first-named of that trio will be returning to England's second tier at the first time of asking.

Bolton have outperformed the likes of Bristol Rovers and Oxford United, two clubs promoted from League Two that were originally viewed by the bookies as having as good a chance of securing promotion to the Championship as the Lancashire club.

The Trotters have suffered dreadful financial problems in the last few years since Sam Allardyce was taking them into Europe via the Premier League, finishing sixth in 2005, but after a takeover they appear to be back on a sounder footing.

Phil Parkinson, an experienced operator at this level, was brought in as manager during the summer and the former Bradford City boss has secured automatic promotion for his new club.

Sheffield United have been languishing in the third tier too long for a club of their size but after beginning the campaign poorly, their manager Chris Wilder led the Blades to the title by reaching the 100-point mark and finishing 14 clear at the top of the table.

Scunthorpe United, Fleetwood Town and Bradford City also helped to form a very strong northern challenge for places in the Championship next season after enjoying excellent campaigns and it will be the last-named Bantams who contest the play-off final against Millwall.

Bradford won 1-0 at home to Fleetwood Town in the first leg of their play-off semi-final and that solitary Rory McArdle goal was enough to send them to Wembley as the return match ended 0-0, while Millwall also drew 0-0 with Scunthorpe at the New Den but then won 3-2 at Glanford Park.

The Lions are aiming to go one better than last season when they lost the play-off final to Barnsley - but they had beaten Bradford in the semis.
