Over the Easter weekend, Brighton and Hove Albion beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2 – 0 which puts them four points clear at the summit of the Sky Bet Championship. A win on Monday for the Seagulls against Wigan Athletic will see them secure promotion to the Barclays Premier League for the first time in their history.

Reading secured and consolidated their fourth place spot in the Sky Bet Championship after they saw out a 3 – 1 against Aston Villa at Villa Park on the Easter weekend.
