Ipswich Town have been installed as the early League One title favourites ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Following Sunderland's Play-Off Final win against Wycombe at Wembley yesterday we now know 23 of the 24 teams who will make up the division next season.

Peterborough, Derby County and Barnsley have come down from the Championship, while Forest Green Rovers, Exeter City and Bristol Rovers were promoted automatically from League Two.

The winners of next Saturday's League Two Play-Off Final between Mansfield Town and Port Vale will join them in the third-tier.
