Nigel Adkins and Oscar Garcia: Chasing play-off spots

Nigel Adkins and Oscar Garcia: Chasing play-off spots

This weekend is the final round of matches in the Sky Bet Championship and the two matches selected are amongst the most crucial.

Following Wigan's win over Birmingham on Tuesday, there is now just one play-off spot up for grabs - and Nigel Adkins' Reading and Oscar Garcia's Brighton are two of the teams in contention.

The Royals currently occupy the all-important sixth place in the table - but any slip-up could let in Albion, who are just one point outside the play-off frame.

Blackburn also have an outside chance of securing sixth spot, but they must thrash Wigan at Ewood Park and hope other results go their way in order to join the Latics in extending their campaign.

Elsewhere, Birmingham travel to 14th-placed Bolton knowing that even a victory at the Reebok Stadium may not be enough to avoid the drop into League One.

Lee Clark's Blues are a point behind 21st-placed Doncaster, although Paul Dickov's Rovers team also have a tough away day to contemplate against champions Leicester.

Millwall and Blackpool are still sweating on survival too. Ian Holloway's Lions play host to Bournemouth knowing a home win at the Den would definitely keep them up, while the Seasiders need just a point against Charlton at Bloomfield Road to be sure of staying in the second tier for another season.

Derby will aim to enter the play-offs on the back of a three-point haul at Leeds, while there are mid-table encounters to end the season at Portman Road, where Ipswich take on Sheffield Wednesday, and at Vicarage Road, as Watford face Huddersfield.

Already-relegated Barnsley and Yeovil both have home games, against QPR and Middlesbrough respectively.

All 12 fixtures in the final round of the regular Championship campaign kick off at 12.15pm.

You can watch either - or both - Reading v Burnley and Nottingham Forest v Brighton live on Sky Sports 1HD and 2HD on Saturday May 3 from midday.
