Barnsley have qualified for the Championship play-offs for the first time in 21 years.
Reading’s 2-2 draw at home to Swansea City at Sunday lunchtime means they cannot catch the Reds with two games left.
It is a superb achievement for the Oakwell club after avoiding relegation on the final day of last season. They did not win any of the first seven this season before the appointment of Valerien Ismael who has collected 73 points from 37 games.
The play-off semi-finals first legs take place on Monday, May 17 at 6pm then 8.15pm while the second legs are the following Saturday at 12.30pm or 5.30pm. The final is at Wembley on Saturday, May 29 from 3pm.
There are two league games left but the Reds know they will be joined in the play-offs by Brentford, Bournemouth and Swansea. The four clubs could finish in any order which will determine who plays who in the play-offs.
