Who's in and who's out as we look ahead to next term in the second tier

Following Rotherham United's victory over Shrewsbury Town at Wembley this weekend, the 2018-19 Championship lineup has been confirmed.

The Millers join ourselves and Wigan Athletic back in the Championship, with all three sides bouncing back to the second tier at the first time of asking, which hasn't happened often - Hartlepool, Swindon and Walsall were all promoted from League Two in 2006-07, which was the last occasion this occured.

Coming down from the Premier League were Stoke City, Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion, who recently appointed our former first-team coach Darren Moore as their permanent manager.

There are plenty of big hitters in the Championship this term, with Aston Villa missing out on promotion after former Rover Tom Cairney scored the winner in the play-off Final at Wembley on Saturday afternoon to take Fulham back to the top flight.

In fact, just five teams from the 24 competing in the second tier next term haven't been in the Premier League, with Brentford, Bristol City, Millwall, our near neighbours Preston North End and Rotherham all hoping to make history next season.

The full list of teams competing can be seen below:

What game are you most looking forward to watching?

It promises to be a fascinating campaign, so make sure you join the journey by purchasing your 2018-19 Season Ticket and ensuring you don't miss a kick at Ewood Park next term.
