LEAGUE ONE TAKING SHAPE

6 May 2013

Four more of next season's opponents are confirmed after the weekend's action


The 2013/14 League One line-up became a little clearer this weekend following the final round of Championship fixtures and the second legs of the npower League One and League Two Play-Off Semi-Finals.

Gillingham fans can look forward to their first trip to Molineux since February 2005, after Wolves 2-1 defeat to Brighton at the Amex confirmed the Midlands giants second relegation in successive seasons.

Wanderers needed a win against the Seagulls, and for results to go their way elsewhere, but two goals from Kazenga Lua-Lua condemned them to a 2-0 defeat.

They are joined by already-relegated Bristol City in League One, along with Peterborough United, who slipped into the drop zone in the final minutes of the season.

The Posh led Crystal Palace twice on Saturday before an 89th minute Mile Jedinak header gave the Eagles a 3-2 win, and signalled the end of Peterbrough's Championship status.

Two more of next season's opponents were confirmed today following the completion of the League Two play-off semi-finals.

The Gills will face Sheffield United in 2013/14 after goals from Kevin Dawson and a late Ed Upson header sent Yeovil Town through to the Wembley Final later this month.

Gills will also renew their rivalry with Swindon Town next season after Brentford won a penalty shoot-out with the Robins 5-4, the two sides having finished 4-4 on aggregate after two legs.

Meanwhile the final promotion slot from League Two will be contested between Bradford City and Northampton Town, after they overcame Burton Albion and Cheltenham Town respectively to reach the play-off final.

Finally, everyone at Gillingham would like to congratulate Newport County, who return to the Football League next season after beating Wrexham 2-0 in the Blue Square Premier Play-Off final.

They will be joined by Blue Square Premier champions and fellow former Football League stalwarts Mansfield Town.
