What's coming up in midweek?

Following a memorable weekend, it's back to business on Tuesday night!

10 February 2020

There are 29 more EFL fixtures on the way this Tuesday evening, with Brentford's Sky Bet Championship clash against Leeds United arguably the pick of the bunch.

Here's a look ahead to the midweek action...

Things took a dramatic turn in the Sky Bet Championship at the weekend, and could well do so again in midweek. 

Leeds United's lead over the chasing pack was erased on Saturday evening at Nottingham Forest, and the Whites face another tough away day on Tuesday night, this time against Brentford in West London. Just two points separate the sides, and it will be Brentford in the more confident mood following their late, 3-2 win over Middlesbrough last time out.

Speaking of Forest, they're on home soil once again in midweek, taking on a Charlton Athletic side that suffered a disappointing 3-1 defeat at Stoke City on Saturday. Another three points for the hosts could move them into the automatic promotion places and, with just one defeat in their last eight games, they will be fancied to pick up a positive result.

A number of sides will be looking to get back to winning ways on Tuesday, including both Swansea City and Queens Park Rangers, who meet at the Liberty Stadium, and Wigan Athletic and Middlesbrough, who go head-to-head at the DW Stadium.

Here are the Tuesday fixtures...

The sides at the top of Sky Bet League One just keep rolling on, but something will have to give when Coventry City host Portsmouth on Tuesday night. Pompey have won a record nine consecutive games in all competitions, while Coventry are also in fine form, setting this up to be a fantastic clash.

Elsewhere, Peterborough United are also flying, having won their last five league games; they take on relegation-threatened Southend United who, despite a stunning goal from Stephen McLaughlin, lost at Blackpool last time out. The Posh will certainly be favourites here.

With leaders Rotherham United not in action, only a huge goal swing would take Wycombe Wanderers back to the summit, should they see off Fleetwood Town. Sixth-placed Sunderland AFC take on Rochdale, while Ipswich Town will be hoping to bounce back quickly at AFC Wimbledon.

Big wins for Crewe Alexandra and Exeter City last time out, coupled with Plymouth Argyle's defeat at Colchester United, kept things very interesting at the top of Sky Bet League Two. Stevenage continue to lead the way, and travel to fellow promotion hopefuls Northampton Town in midweek.

The big game at the bottom sees Morecambe host Macclesfield Town, who will be buoyed by a late equaliser against Leyton Orient at the weekend. This relegation six-pointer could prove crucial come the end of the campaign, and Stevenage will have one eye on the fixture as they head to Bradford City.

Two sides with an outside chance of a Play-Off place meet at The New Lawn, as tenth-placed Forest Green Rovers take on ninth-placed Port Vale. Vale come into this game on the back of a morale-boosting victory at Northampton Town.
