1995 Football League Second Division play-off Final

The 1995 Football League Second Division play-off Final was a football match played on 28 May 1995, to determine the second and final team to gain promotion from the Second Division to the First Division of The Football League in the 1994–95 season (due to the reduction of the Premier League from 22 to 20 teams, only one automatic promotion place was available). Huddersfield Town faced Bristol Rovers. It was the sixth Second Division play-off final to be decided at Wembley Stadium.

Huddersfield Town finally won at Wembley after the losing three FA Cup Finals (1928, 1930, 1938) and last year's Football League Trophy Final losses.
