While the Owls' play-off hopes have taken a blow in recent weeks with defeat against Aston Villa and Leeds United, there is still an outside chance.

With four games left to play, Steve Bruce's side are six points off the top six with rivals Bristol City still left to play.

The semi-finals of the play-offs will be held across three dates in May - just a week after the regular Championship season finishes.

These are the key dates for the Championship play-off semi-finals:

Championship A 1st Leg: Saturday May 11 (kick-off 12.30pm)

Championship B 1st Leg: Saturday May 11 (kick-off 5.15pm)

Championship A 2nd Leg: Tuesday May 14 (kick-off 7.45pm)

The selection for which fixtures are A and B will be made once the Championship season is completed.

The play-off semi final matches will see the side finishing in 3rd face those who finish 6th, while 4th position will take on 5th.

The higher ranked side play at home in the second leg and, as ever, all ties will be broadcast on Sky Sports.

The Championship play-off final will then be held on Monday, May 27 (3pm kick-off).
