John Ryan: Wishes rivals well

Ryan's club sealed an immediate return to the Championship following relegation last year by winning the League One title in the most dramatic fashion at Brentford last weekend courtesy of James Coppinger's injury-time goal.

Ryan hopes there will be plenty of derby matches to look forward to next season and hopes that Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday both get the results they need in their final games of the season on Saturday to ensure that they remain in the second tier.

The 63-year-old also wants Sheffield United to return to the Championship along alongside Doncaster by winning the play-offs.

"The Championship is the place to be and I have been looking down the table and the potential fixtures are mouth watering," Ryan said.

"Along with the three clubs who come down from the Premier League, there's also the likes of Leeds in there.

"We also want Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield Town to stay up and in an ideal world for Sheffield United to come up with us, then we can enjoy some real Yorkshire derbies."
