English nPower Championship Playoff Final 2011: Lineups

Reading take on Swnasea in one of the most lucrative matches of the year, the winner receiving promotion to the Premier League and the loser receiving... well, nothing. Them's the breaks. It's the nPower Championship playoff final, and it's going to be a quite a lot of fun. Reading run out a 4-4-2 relying on the work rate of its central midfielders and strikers to overpower the opposition, while Swansea play a 4-2-3-1 built around possession and the finishing ability of on-loan Chelsea man Fabio Borini.
