Sky Sports has announced more EFL TV selections to be shown live in April along with the March games already picked.
The season has reached a third of the way and the race for promotion is hotting up nicely, while the battle down the bottle is getting tense.
Leading the way in the Championship, it’s Fulham, who currently have 76 points from 35 games played, while in second it’s AFC Bournemouth, who have 62 points after 33 matches. Huddersfield, Blackburn, Sheffield United and Luton make up the playoffs.
Down the bottom, Derby County are plotting their own survival which would be a miracle in itself, 5 points from safety despite having a -21 point deduction. Barnsley and Peterborough also sit in the relegation zone.
