The season is reaching its climax and Barnsley and Doncaster Rovers face a nailbiting afternoon as they scrap for their Championship survival.

Hull City can make sure of their Premier League future, while in League Two, York City can guarantee their play-off spot.

Premier League

Fulham v Hull City

Team news: Shane Long has won his fitness fight this week and will again start, the striker having been substituted at half-time against Arsenal. Sone Aluko is more of a doubt with the injury that prevented him from starting against the Gunners. Allan McGregor and Paul McShane are still out.


Huddersfield Town v Leicester City

Team news: James Vaughan is out for the season, while Keith Southern is also unavailable for the visit of champions Leicester. Harry Bunn picked up an injury in midweek while playing for the development squad but Joel Lynch is back after a two-game suspension following his red card in the defeat at Derby County. Danny Ward has recovered from a bang to the head in the win at Yeovil.

Birmingham City v Leeds United

Team news: Luke Murphy and Michael Tonge are expected to be fit despite picking up knocks over the Easter holiday period. But Stephen Warnock (ankle), Sam Byram (hamstring), Jimmy Kebe (hamstring) and Marius Zaliukas (calf) are all out.

Sheffield Wednesday v Bolton

Team news: Liam Palmer and Lewis Buxton are out for the rest of the season, while Glen Loovens will be assesed after an injection. Sam Hutchinson is suspended.

Doncaster Rovers v Reading

Team news: Doncaster’s Lucas Neill, James Husband and Richie Wellens face fitness tests. But defender Abdoulaye Meite can play after having his red card at Millwall rescinded.

Middlesbrough v Barnsley

Team news: Kei Kamara is back from surgery, but Muzzy Carayol and Rhys Williams are out. Barnsley will monitor Jack Hunt, Kelvin Etuhu and Ryan McLaughlin.

League One

Bradford City v Crawley Town

Team news: James Hanson leads the list of doubts for City with a troublesome back injury that has seen the striker miss five of the last six games. Nathan Doyle (groin) is also struggling to be fit along with Matthew Dolan (groin). Adam Reach’s return to Middlesbrough means Kyle Bennett and Raffael De Vita will vie for the left flank berth with Mark Yeates.

Rotherham v MK Dons

Team news: Lee Frecklington will be involved either from the start or on the bench. Ritchie Smallwood serves the first game of a three-match ban for the Millers.

League Two

York City v Newport County

Team news: Nigel Worthington has no fresh injury concern as City look to avenge their heaviest defeat of the season - 3-0 in Newport last October. Such has been the pace of change since then, however, that only Lewis Montrose is likely to start today from the team that started at Rodney Parade.
