For half the teams in the English Football League (EFL), today represents the final away day of the season so thousands of football fans up and down the country are making the most of their final trip of the season before the long summer break begins.

While some clubs still have promotion and relegation on their minds, plenty of fans will be attending matches today in a relaxed mood safe in the knowledge of where their team will be playing next season. For those fans, today is all about simply having a laugh with mates for the final time this season.

Bolton dress up for final away day of the season

Bolton fans are heading to Peterborough today knowing that their side needs to win if they are to secure automatic promotion to the Championship. They also need Derby County to lose at home to Carlisle otherwise a playoff campaign is what they have to look forward to.

Some of their fans aren't letting the stress of the occasion get in the way of having a good time, though. Here, we see a group of travelling Trotters in fancy dress en route to Peterborough.

Cheltenham follow suit

Cheltenham managed to narrowly avoid relegation to League Two this season and today, they travel to Stevenage for their final match of the season. Like the Bolton fans above, some of the travelling Cheltenham fans have elected to go in fancy dress to celebrate the occasion.

Middlesbrough enjoy picnic on final away day of the season

Taking first prize today is the group of Middlesbrough fans who are well and truly making the most of their final away day of the season. While Boro have come up short in their quest for the playoffs, their fans aren't letting that dampen their spirits ahead of a long trip to Cardiff.

This group have brought an elaborate picnic on board the away coach, with plates and baskets to boot. To be fair to them, it is a 300-mile journey down to Cardiff so they've probably done the right thing.

 

Early wake-up call for Plymouth fans

Plymouth Argyle fans woke up nice and early for their crunch away match against Millwall on Saturday. Argyle sit two points above the relegation zone and play against a Millwall team, who have already secured their Championship status for next season. Staying up in their first Championship season since 2010 would be a huge achievement for the Pilgrims.

The group of Plymouth fans pictured below had a full buffet, including sausage rolls, beers and a variety of different crisps. They boarded the train at 7am, ahead of a long train journey to South London.
