Like football, do you? You're in the right place, friends. We've got four games to bring you this weekend, all providing some a degree of drama at all three ends of the Championship table - yes, the Championship table has three ends. You read that correctly.

We kickstart things with Leicester City. Once the runaway leaders, now trying to reclaim top spot. They have been given the opportunity to do just that, with Ipswich not in action this weekend.

Standing in their way are West Brom, who still have a little bit of work to do at the King Power Stadium and beyond to book their spot in the play-offs. It is live on Sky Sports Football from 12pm on Saturday; Kick-off 12.30pm.

Heading into the evening and attention switches to the other end and a QPR side host Preston needing points to clamber away from the bottom three. It is live on Sky Sports Football from 5pm on Saturday; Kick-off 5.15pm.

Then onto Sunday! Blackburn eased their relegation fears last weekend, and welcome Sheffield Wednesday to Ewood Park with the Owls still firmly embedded in the bottom three. It is live on Sky Sports Football from 12pm; Kick-off 12.30pm.

And your Monday night football comes to you from the Riverside Stadium, where Middlesbrough will aim to to put another block on Leeds United's promotion push. It is live on Sky Sports Football from 7.30pm; Kick-off 8pm.

Who will reach the Premier League?

The bulk of the Championship drama takes place at 3pm on Saturday. You will be able to follow it all by watching Soccer Saturday on Sky Sports News from 12pm, or via our dedicated EFL live blog on the website and app.
