    5/3/2014 11:04:58 AM
  • BEAGS: BRIGHTON WELL PLACED
    Brighton may be a point behind Reading but Peter Beagrie tells Sky Sports they could leapfrog Reading, who face a tough Burnley side. 

    There's an argument to say Brighton are favourites. When you factor in Reading's home form and the fact they're playing against Sean Dyche's well-oiled machine, who ended Ipswich's play-off hopes last week. 
    [peterbeagrie]
    5/3/2014 11:08:47 AM
  • FORSTER: BRIGHTON MUST STAY FOCUSED
    Former Brighton forward Nicky Forster says his former side mustn't be distracted by scores elsewhere today. [brighton]

    They have to approach it like they approach any other game. They can't let their concentration fail. They can't let the information from the crowd filter down and affect the way they play. 

    5/3/2014 11:11:13 AM
  • BLACKBURN CREDIT
    Blackburn may be outsiders to get a play-off place but Beags says they have done well this season, regardless. [peterbeagrie]

    They have done magnificently well. Bowyer has brought stability. There's been massive progression this season. 

    5/3/2014 11:13:11 AM
  • They're running out at Forest....

    5/3/2014 11:14:36 AM
  • And getting ready for kick-off at Reading...

  • HERE WE GO!

    5/3/2014 11:16:48 AM
  • READING 0-0 BURNLEY [reading]
    NO PENALTY!!!! Reading are livid that the ref has waved away their penalty appeals - Pogrebnyak hammered in a low shot and Shackell on the floor seems to handle the ball - looked a certain penalty from here
    5/3/2014 11:18:55 AM
  • Here's that penalty shout - the ball clearly hitting defender Shackell's arm

    5/3/2014 11:19:08 AM

  • Brighton need at least a point against Garry Birtles' former club Nottingham Forest today if they're to clinch the final playoff spot in the Championship. Birtles says it's all about holding your nerves on the final day.

    5/3/2014 11:21:11 AM

  • 5/3/2014 11:22:11 AM
  • NOTTINGHAM FOREST 0-0 BRIGHTON
    What a chance for Brighton! Forest fall asleep at the back and Ulloa is through on goal after latching onto a long punt forward but he pulls his shot wide of the far post. Early opportunity squandered by the play-off chasers.
    5/3/2014 11:24:20 AM
  • Ulloa just shoots wide for Brighton.

  • CHAMPIONSHIP RELEGATION LATEST
    No goals in the games involving Birmingham, Millwall and Doncaster yet, but a bit further up the table Simon Dawkins has given Derby a 1-0 lead at old rivals Leeds. [fl72]
    5/3/2014 11:26:01 AM
  • BOLTON 0-0 BIRMINGHAM [birmingham]
    CHANCE!!!! Early chance for Brum but Zigic has his shot blocked inside the Bolton box
    5/3/2014 11:26:31 AM
  • NOTTINGHAM FOREST 0-0 BRIGHTON
    First half-chance for Forest at The City Ground but the angle is tough for Jamie Mackie and he fires well wide.
    5/3/2014 11:27:56 AM
  • BLACKBURN 1-0 WIGAN
    Rovers need plenty of help to make the play-offs but they have the lead at Ewood Park with the club's player of the season Tom Cairney scoring from 12 yards after a mazy run
    5/3/2014 11:29:21 AM
  • Cairney sticks Blackburn ahead - now they need a few more and Reading and Brighton to go behind. It could happen!

    5/3/2014 11:29:23 AM
  • READING 0-0 BURNLEY [burnley]
    Obita is on the floor with both hands raised - he wants a free-kick but it was just strong defending from Kightly who got between the Reading man and the ball, home fans not at all happy with that

    5/3/2014 11:31:24 AM
  • [twitter]

    5/3/2014 11:32:38 AM
  • NOTTINGHAM FOREST 0-0 BRIGHTON
    Shocker! The ball falls nicely for Tudgay but the Forest man gets his attempted dink all wrong and it never threatens the target. The flag was up but not against Tudgay and the goal would probably have stood.
    5/3/2014 11:32:51 AM
  • READING 1-0 BURNLEY [goal] (Trippier) 
    OWN GOAL!!!!! Burnley corner is wasted and Reading race up the other end - McAnuff steams down the right wing and whips over a fierce low cross that Trippier turns past his own keeper and into the net, disaster for the Clarets but delight for the Royals

  • BLACKBURN 2-1 WIGAN
    Rovers' lead lasts only a few minutes as Ivan Ramis levels for Wigan (17), but moments later they are back in front through April's Player of the Month Rudy Gestede (19) [blackburn]
    5/3/2014 11:34:16 AM
  • Trippier puts the ball in his own net to send the Reading fans wild!
