EFL preview: matchday three

Get the latest fixtures and league standings ahead of the weekend!

15 August 2019

The Sky Bet Championship action resumes on Friday evening between two promotion favourites in Huddersfield Town and Fulham. The Terriers are yet to register a win this season and face another tough task here, against a Fulham side buoyed by victory over Blackburn Rovers last time out.

Saturday sees 20 Clubs in action, including table-topping Sheffield Wednesday, who head to Millwall, and Charlton Athletic, who will be looking to maintain their 100% record against Barnsley at Oakwell, a ground which has become somewhat of a fortress for the Tykes.

The fixtures don't stop there, with Cardiff City travelling to Reading for a Sunday lunchtime kick-off.

There's a real treat in store in Saturday's early Sky Bet League One kick-off, as Sunderland AFC and Portsmouth - who went head-to-head in last season's Play-Off Semi-Finals and the EFL Trophy Final, meet for the first time this season at the Stadium of Light.

It's one of a number of big clashes this weekend, with Peterborough United going up against Ipswich Town, and league leaders Blackpool at home to seventh-placed Oxford United.

Alongside the Seasiders, Lincoln City and Fleetwood Town are the only other sides to have picked up maximum points so far, and will be hoping to keep it up against Southend United and Doncaster Rovers respectively.

All 24 Sky Bet League Two Clubs feature on Saturday afternoon, with pace-setters Plymouth Argyle looking to stay top of the pile. They head to Newport County, last season's Play-Off Finalists, with six points from six so far.

Behind Argyle only on goal difference are Swindon Town and Exeter City, who go head-to-head at St James Park, while fifth-placed Forest Green Rovers host fourth-placed Grimsby Town.

Looking to pick up their first points of the campaign will be Oldham Athletic, Stevenage and Scunthorpe United.
