FL72 - Preview: We look forward to another great weekend of action

FL72 - Preview: 7pm, Thurs, Sky Sports 2

On this week's FL72 - Preview, we will build up to the Sky Live Championship double header on Saturday when QPR face Leicester and Millwall take on Middlesbrough.

Harry Redknapp's high-flying Hoops will hope to increase their two-point lead at the top of the Championship with victory over third-placed Leicester at Loftus Road in the first kick-off of our tantalising twosome.

Then, following the 3pm kick offs, it is over to The Den for an important clash at the other end of the table as 18th take on 19th when Middlesbrough will hope to leap above Millwall in the table and distance themselves further from the relegation zone.

You can catch the action from 12pm on Sky Sports 1 this Saturday, but first tune in to see our experts analyse the sides' strengths and weaknesses.

There are plenty of other fascinating battles to look forward to in the Football League this weekend, too, and here are a few highlights we'll feature in the show...

CHAMPIONSHIP:

As well as the two games that are live on Sky Sports 1 on Saturday, there's plenty of big match-ups to look forward to from the 3pm kick offs with Reading playing Wigan, Birmingham against Nottingham Forest, and Burnley versus Blackpool among the fixtures.

LEAGUE ONE:

Leaders Leyton Orient face mid-table Crawley in League One while their nearest rivals, Wolves, are at home to second-bottom Crewe. Among the other fixtures, it's sixth versus seventh as Rotherham travel to Bradford, while Brentford will want to keep tabs on the top two with victory over Swindon, who are desperate to stay in contention with the play-off hopefuls.

LEAGUE TWO:

Chesterfield will have the chance to, temporarily at least, jump above Oxford United at the summit of League Two on Friday night. They travel to Exeter, while Southend face Rochdale in the other Friday-evening clash. Oxford can confirm their place at the top of the table on Saturday, though, if they beat struggling York.
