The season is ticking closer and closer to the end and just two or three matches remain in the English Football League. These are the teams who could potentially go up or down this weekend.

Sky Bet Championship

Chris Hughton’s Brighton & Hove Albion side will be crowned as Sky Bet Championship champions should they defeat Norwich City on Friday night.

The Seagulls, should they not beat the Canaries, will have to wait until Monday night when Newcastle will need to better the Seasiders’ result to keep the title race alive.

If Reading drop points and Huddersfield Town lose on Saturday, then three points for Rafa Benitez’s side will confirm Newcastle United’s return to the top-flight.

Wigan Athletic could consign the Latics to relegation if they drop points at home to Cardiff City on Saturday.

Should the Latics draw, and if Nottingham Forest beat Reading, then they will be relegated. A draw, and a Forest win and a Birmingham draw at Aston Villa, would also consign them to League One.

Sky Bet League One

Should Bolton Wanderers win away to Port Vale on Saturday, then they could be promoted to the Championship. However the Trotters require Fleetwood Town to drop points at 18th-placed Gillingham.

Swindon Town can be relegated to the bottom tier of the Football League should they fail to beat Scunthorpe United at home. Should the Robins lose, and Bury gain a point at home to Northampton Town, they will be relegated.

A draw against the Iron, and it would take a Bury win along with a point for Shrewsbury Town to relegate Swindon.

Sky Bet League Two

Leyton Orient must win at Crewe Alexandra on Saturday to prevent relegation from happening.

However, the O’s may still be relegated if Hartlepool – who host Barnet – better their result.

Return to the Football League

Lincoln City could seal promotion to the English Football if Danny Cowley’s side beat Macclesfield Town in the lunchtime kick-off.

If Tranmere Rovers drop points against Southport on Saturday, then the Imps will also be promoted.
