Matchday preview: midweek action

20 August 2019

After a fantastic weekend of football across the EFL's three divisions, the League action continues in midweek with a host of fixtures up and down the country.

The Sky Bet Championship action is split across Tuesday and Wednesday evening respectively, and will see some important clashes take place.

With three games played so far, it's Leeds United who lead the way in the early standings - they head to Brentford on Wednesday, looking to maintain their unbeaten start.

A handful of Clubs will be looking to replace them at the top on Tuesday evening though, including Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday, who host Luton Town, and Derby County, who take on fellow promotion hopefuls Bristol City.

Two sides buoyed by big wins at the weekend are West Bromwich Albion and Reading, who meet at The Hawthorns on Wednesday, with Fulham v Millwall also among the standout fixtures.

There are 10 fixtures taking place in Sky Bet League One on Tuesday evening, including league leaders Lincoln City's trip to MK Dons.

Also on maximum points after three games are Blackpool, who face a long trip to 17th-placed Gillingham, while Southend United will be looking for their first win of the season at home to Peterborough United. 

Both Fleetwood Town and Wycombe Wanderers have made strong starts to the 2019/20 campaign, and meet at Highbury Stadium, while Ipswich Town and Sunderland will hope to climb into the Play-Off places.

All 24 Sky Bet League Two sides are in action on Tuesday evening, with Swindon Town the early pace-setters in the division. They'll look to stay at the top with victory over Northampton Town.

Elsewhere, winless Morecambe travel to unbeaten Macclesfield Town in an all-North West clash, Exeter City can go top - dependent on other results - with victory over bottom club Oldham Athletic, and Bradford City will look to build on a big win at the weekend by beating Stevenage.

Also in the mix is a first-ever EFL meeting between Plymouth Argyle and Salford City, and a first between Walsall and Newport County since 1987. 

Don't forget, highlights of every game will be available on 'EFL on Quest' this Wednesday evening (Freeview 12, Freesat 167, Sky 144, Virgin 172).
