As we head into the business end of the domestic season, Sky Sports looks at the promotion and relegation issues that could be decided this weekend.

In the Championship, Burnley could seal their return to the Premier League if they beat Middlesbrough at Turf Moor and third-placed Derby fail to win their home match with Huddersfield.

The Clarets, who spent the 2009/10 season in the top-flight, have enjoyed a superb season under Sean Dyche.

They are currently 11 points clear of Derby with just five games remaining.

Steve McClaren's Rams will be guaranteed a play-off place if they win and all of Brighton, who host Charlton, and Ipswich, who are at home to Doncaster, and Bournemouth, who travel to Yeovil, lose.

In League One, leaders Wolves will be promoted if they win at Crewe and Rotherham fail to beat Bradford on Friday.

Kenny Jackett's side can also be promoted if they draw and Rotherham lose, Leyton Orient draw or lose against Gillingham and Preston fail to win against Carlisle.

In League Two, Chesterfield will be guaranteed a play-off place if they better Oxford's result.

The Spireites are at Hartlepool, while the U's travel to Plymouth.

Torquay will be relegated if they lose to Bristol Rovers and Exeter (v Cheltenham), Portsmouth (v Dagenham) and Morecambe (v Fleetwood) all win.

And in the Skrill Premier, Luton will be promoted to League Two if they beat Braintree.

In Scotland, Morton wil be relegated from the Championship if they fail to beat Alloa.

Arbroath will be relegated from League One if they lose to Stranraer and East Fife beat Stenhousemuir.

And in League Two Peterhead will be champions if they beat Clyde and Annan fail to beat East Stirling.
