HULL, England (AP) - Hull will play Sheffield Wednesday for a place in the English Premier League next season after surviving a fightback by Derby in their League Championship playoff semifinal on Tuesday.

Hull lost 2-0 at home, but advanced 3-2 on aggregate after a 3-0 win in Saturday’s first leg.

The playoff final is at Wembley Stadium on May 28.

A win for Hull would see Steve Bruce’s team return to the top flight at the first time of asking.
