The League One play-off final will have a distinctly Norfolk feel to it after Paul Warne's Rotherham earned themselves a Wembley showdown with Shrewsbury Town.

Norwich-born Warne – a fan of his hometown club who also played non-league football for Wroxham – will be hoping to end the promotion dreams of the Shrews' on-loan Canaries Ben Godfrey and Carton Morris.

Goals from Richard Wood and Will Vaulks at the New York Stadium secured victory over Scunthorpe after the first leg had finished 2-2, with former Canaries youngster Cameron McGeehan netting a late equaliser for the Iron. The Millers, relegated last season, went ahead through Wood's smart header. Vaulks added a second from close range, before Scunthorpe had captain Rory McArdle sent off.

Shrewsbury made it through after beating Charlton 1-0 on Sunday, with Morris netting the winner, for a 2-0 aggregate score.

The play-off final is on Sunday, May 27.
