Additional services and longer trains will be running between Derby and London St Pancras International this Bank Holiday Monday to help supporters get to Wembley for the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final. 

East Midlands Trains are doing everything they can to help supporters get to and from London on Monday but the huge demand from supporters as well as engineering works means services are still expected to be exceptionally busy.
