Upcoming live matches on Sky Sports

1 May 2014

This weekend's Sky Bet Football League action live on Sky Sports is a double-header from the Sky Bet Championship as the regular season across all three divisions reaches its climax.

Sky Bet League 1 and Sky Bet League 2 teams begin their final round of matches at 3pm on Saturday, but before that the second tier will be concluded from 12:15pm with two games featuring the Play-Off race chosen for live coverage on Sky Sports.

Sixth-placed Reading occupy the final Play-Off spot and they host already-promoted Burnley at the Madejski Stadium. Brighton and Hove Albion are one point further back in seventh and their trip to Nottingham Forest is the other fixture set to be played in front of the cameras.

Burnley beat Reading 2-1 at Turf Moor back in October to end a five-game winning streak for the Royals in this fixture. Brighton meanwhile haven't won against Forest in four encounters.

The Royals have been trading places with the Seagulls in recent weeks and re-took sixth spot following a 3-1 success at Doncaster Rovers last Saturday, recording back-to-back wins. That followed Brighton's 2-0 win at home to Yeovil Town on Friday night which temporarily put Oscar Garcia's men in the Play-Offs.

Both Reading and Brighton have the same goal difference heading into their respective games. Blackburn Rovers could yet make the top six, but they would need to win, hope Reading draw and Brighton fail to win, with a seven-goal swing.

Burnley have already confirmed second place while Forest's hopes of reaching the Play-Offs were ended at Bournemouth last weekend - the highest place the Reds can finish is eighth.
