FL72 - Preview: Peter Beagrie looks ahead to Football League action

FL72-Preview: 6.30pm, Thursday, Sky Sports 1

The action-packed midweek matches have shuffled the Football League tables - and Peter Beagrie will be in the Sky Café on Thursday to analyse the fallout.

The FL72 - Preview guest will also look ahead to the big games this weekend, including the Sky Live clash between QPR and Burnley.

Both sides have enjoyed time at the top of the Championship this season but now find themselves desperately trying to cling on to high-flying Leicester's coat-tails.

With just two automatic spots available, the outcome of this encounter could prove to be vital come the latter stages of the season.

Harry Redknapp's men capitalised on Burnley's 0-0 draw at home to Brighton by beating Bolton at Loftus Road on Tuesday night to edge three-clear of the Clarets.

But who will come out on top in this tussle in West London? Beagrie will offer his insight on the strengths and weaknesses of the respective sides.

Elsewhere in the Championship this weekend, Reading, fresh from boosting their play-off push with a 5-1 thumping of managerless Blackpool, will look to maintain their momentum at Ian Holloway's Millwall, while Doncaster will aim to put further distance between themselves and the relegation places at home to Middlesbrough, after dumping Charlton into the drop zone with a 3-0 midweek win.

Beagrie will also offer his thoughts on League One and League Two, and may touch on these topics...

LEAGUE ONE: Table-topping Brentford have won eight out of their last nine and will hope to maintain that form when they travel to Shrewsbury this weekend. With their nearest rivals Leyton Orient at play-off placed Rotherham, Mark Warburton's men will be keen to capitalise should the East London outfit slip-up at New York Stadium.

LEAGUE TWO: Title-chasing Chesterfield host Bristol Rovers with a spring in their step after beating York 2-0 to profit from Scunthorpe's 0-0 draw with Fleetwood on Monday night. The latter contest, which pitted second against third, means Scunthorpe must take three points from their trip to Hartlepool and Fleetwood need victory at home to York to keep up the chase on the League Two leaders.
