The EFL Championship continues to be one of the most entertaining leagues available on Fox Sports, and no less than four matches will be broadcast live this week.

The action begins at the Hawthorns tonight when West Bromwich Albion and Brentford wrap up round 20 with their 22h00 CAT kick-off (live on Fox Sports 1). The Baggies could go into third place (three points off the top) if they win, while the visitors would love to open up a six-point gap between themselves and the relegation zone.

Round 21 opens at the very same Hawthorns with West Brom at home to Aston Villa. The Birmingham visitors have become one of the Championship’s most talked-about teams after their 5-5 draw with Nottingham Forest and 3-0 win over Middlesbrough last week, and fans are sure to witness another thriller in this Friday night (22h00 CAT kick-off) match, which will be live on Fox Sports 1.

Moving onto Saturday, 10 matches will kick-off at 17h00 CAT, including leaders Norwich City at home to Bolton Wanderers, Leeds United taking on Queens Park Rangers, and the Fox Sports 1 feature presentation of Birmingham City at home to Bristol City at St Andrews Stadium.

Fox Sports 1’s live action for the weekend wraps up with the late kick-off (19h30 CAT) on Saturday which sees Sam Morsy’s Reading looking to rise from the lower reaches of the table when they welcome Sheffield United to the Madejski Stadium.
