Not The Top 20 podcast’s George Elek and Ali Maxwell rate Nottingham Forest’s Djed Spence as one of their EFL 21 Under 21 stars

After the game, Spence appeared to make a comment to former Boro boss Neil Warnock, who was in charge when the 21-year-old was allowed to join Forest last summer, and tagged Warnock’s new Twitter handle alongside a picture of him showing him at the Moving celebrates rooms at Wembley.

Boro has favored Isaiah Jones, who is more of a full-back, over Spence this season and is happy with the way Jones fits into current boss Chris Wilder’s system – meaning Spence will almost certainly leave this summer for good , with two years to go on his contract there.

Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper on Sky Sports Football after winning the play-off final:

“I’m really happy for the players and the fans. I think we played well in the first half. And out of all the good goals we’ve scored this season, we get one like that – but it doesn’t matter to us did it, everyone associated with this football club deserved it today and we look positively to the future.

“It’s a relief, of course, but also pride. I love being at this football club. It changed my life. My family is here, the players’ families are here – this football club is about belonging to a city. We took over Wembley today and are in the Premier League.

Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper was overcome with emotion after his side secured promotion to the Premier League

“This football club builds on positive eras of the past and we want to build on that. We’re proud of that, but at the same time we have to think about what if?” Can we win the Premier League? Can we play attractive football? What if we can develop young players? And we did that by showing an attitude and a commitment not to be beaten. We deserve it.

“It’s a glamorous world as a footballer and as a manager, but it’s also a tough and hateful one. And I just wanted the players to know that I’ll be their biggest supporter and I’ll give them my all through thick and thin. That doesn’t mean that I’m gentle with them or not asking anything of them, but everyone loves to be loved, that’s what we tried to achieve with the players.
