Sky Bet Football League

Tomorrow sees the last day of the Sky Bet Football League with teams striving to get into the play-off places, or to avoid relegation.

In the Sky Bet Championship, Leicester and Burnley are already promoted, and Reading and Brighton are fighting for the final play off place. Reading are at home to Burnley, while Brighton, who are 1 point behind with the same goal difference, travel to Nottingham Forest.

At the other end of the table, Yeovil and Barnsley are already down with Birmingham, who occupy the third relegation spot, favourites to join them. If the Blues draw and Doncaster are beaten at Leicester, then Doncaster will go down, while a Birmingham victory, would leave Millwall and Blackpool in danger. The one positive for Birmingham is that they have a far superior goal difference than the other clubs around them.

Sky Bet's current odds are shown below:

In the Sky Bet Division One, Wolves and Brentford are already promoted and the play off places have been decided. At the bottom however, Carlisle, Crewe, Tranmere and Notts County are fighting to avoid joining Shrewsbury and Stevenage in being relegated to Division Two. Carlisle are 1/100 favourites to go down, while it is pretty close between the other three clubs as to who will join them.
Finally, in League Two, while the top three clubs will be promoted, there is only 1 point separating the three of them with Chesterfield favourites to retain top spot. At the bottom, Torquay are already relegated to the Conference, but a win by Wycombe at Torquay will drag Northampton and Bristol Rovers into the mix if either of them lose.
