  • 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.

    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.

    5/3/2014 11:24:26 AM
  • [jamieredknapp]Sky Sports football pundit Jamie Redknapp gives his verdict on the early kick off between West Ham and Spurs and expects his former club to edge it.

    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
    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
    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 11:32:38 AM
    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

    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!

    5/3/2014 11:34:35 AM
    Brighton are very much on the outside looking in as far as the play-offs go now Reading have scored and the Seagulls are also under the cosh at Forest as Derbyshire's deflected shot flies just over the crossbar.
    5/3/2014 11:35:59 AM
  • READING 1-1 BURNLEY (Arfield) [goal]
    GOAL!!!!!!!! Burnley are level after a poor clearance from Leigertwood drops straight to Arfield who is totally unmarked 10yds out - he makes no mistake with his finish that flies past McCarthy. Game on here folks

    5/3/2014 11:36:21 AM
  • GOAL! NOTTINGHAM FOREST 1-0 BRIGHTON (Derbyshire, 22)[goal]
    Nightmare for Kuszczak! Derbyshire's near-post header from Vaughan's cross is going straight at the Brighton goalkeeper but he seems to stumble slightly and the ball somehow slips past him and into the corner of the net. Just after receiving a boost from Burnley's equaliser, Brighton have handed Forest the lead.
    5/3/2014 11:38:38 AM
  • Garcia can't believe it! Kuszczak's blunder has put Brighton behind!

    5/3/2014 11:40:56 AM
    The Lions are piling on the pressure and Steve Morison comes close to breaking the deadlock, but his shot hits the bar. Stefan Maierhofer missed a sitter soon after but Charlie Nicholas tells us he might have been given offside anyway. [millwall]
    5/3/2014 11:41:53 AM
  • Is Frank De Boer on the brink of becoming Tottenham manager? Darren Anderton is backing him to be a success at White Hart Lane ahead of their clash with West Ham - which kicks off shortly [tottenham]

    5/3/2014 11:42:33 AM
  • READING 1-1 BURNLEY [burnley]
    SOFT!!!! Pogrebnyak falls over like a felled tree after a light touch from Marney on the edge of the box - free-kick is wasted as it's blasted straight at the Burnley wall 

    5/3/2014 11:43:21 AM
  • [goal] READING 1-2 BURNLEY (Ings)
    GOAL!!!!!!!!!!! He hasn't scored for a while but Championship Player of the Year Ings spins and drills the ball low past McCarthy from the edge of the box - superb finish but a massive blow to Reading 
    5/3/2014 11:44:12 AM
    [flag]Disallowed! Brighton almost level as Ulloa taps in Calderon's low cross from close-range but the flag is up for offside, cutting the forward's celebrations short.
    5/3/2014 11:45:03 AM
  • Brighton have it in the net - but the goal is rightly ruled out for offside

    5/3/2014 11:45:13 AM
  • But Brighton just need one goal, because Burnley have turned things around at Reading and lead 2-1!

    5/3/2014 11:45:23 AM
  • [football]WEST HAM 0-0 TOTTENHAM
    This isn't quite a 'dead rubber' when you look at it - Spurs can still catch Everton and nick fifth and West Ham aren't quite safe from relegation worries... Plus, they don't like each other very much. Expect a full-blooded derby.
    5/3/2014 11:45:24 AM
  • Millwall's survival hopes are in their own hands - and they've gone 1-0 up at home to Bournemouth. They're safe as it stands!

    5/3/2014 11:46:54 AM
    GOAL!! The Cherries wasted a couple of chances after Morison hit the bar and now Millwall have the lead - a glancing header from Martyn Woolford puts them in front and gives them a cushion over Doncaster and Birmingham. [millwall]
    5/3/2014 11:47:12 AM

  • 5/3/2014 11:48:05 AM
  • [kick-off]WEST HAM 0-0 TOTTENHAM
    Underway at Upton Park and Kane nearly pressurises Adrian into an early mistake straight from the kick off. This'll be fast and furious...
    5/3/2014 11:50:04 AM
    GOAL!! The goal swing Rovers need improves again with Gestede getting his second goal of the game. They are bang in the race now, with Reading and Brighton both losing. [blackburn]
    5/3/2014 11:51:33 AM
  • [save]WEST HAM 0-0 TOTTENHAM
    End to end stuff here as Carroll towers above his man at a corner to knock down for Nolan, and his attempted overhead kick provides Lloris with a routine early touch. Spurs break quickly and excellent passes from Kane and Eriksen allow Adebayor a sight of goal, but he fluffs his lines.
    5/3/2014 11:52:36 AM
  • READING 1-2 BURNLEY [ouch]
    Marney and Le Fondre are both taking no prisoners as they fly into a challenge and crunch each other on the shins - no quarter given by either and no foul says the ref #oldskool
    5/3/2014 11:53:13 AM
    Let-off for Forest! A Calderon corner is missed by two Forest men at the near post and bounces across the goal-mouth but, agonisingly for Brighton, no one is on hand to tap the ball into the empty net.
    5/3/2014 11:53:29 AM
  • [post]WEST HAM 0-0 TOTTENHAM
    Demel hopelessly slices a volley and Lloris allows the ball to bounce off the top of the crossbar and behind. Casual stuff from the French goalkeeper but he got it right, ultimately.
    5/3/2014 11:53:36 AM
    Fury from the Blues, who have the ball in the back of the net through Nikola Zigic, but it's disallowed for a foul. Alan McInally says there was no contact at all as he headed home. [disallowed-goal]
    5/3/2014 11:55:06 AM
  • READING 1-2 BURNLEY [burnley]
    CHANCE!!!! One touch and band from Ings who is at least 25yds out - keeper was beaten but the Burnley hit-man has lifted it over the park, Reading hanging on here after a bright start
    5/3/2014 11:55:56 AM
  • Here's how it stands at the moment in the race for the final play off place. Reading are losing - but still holding onto sixth.

    5/3/2014 11:56:53 AM
  • Meanwhile, at the other end of the Championship, Birmingham remain in the bottom three.

    5/3/2014 11:58:19 AM
    Brighton desperately need an equaliser here but Greer gets his near-post header wrong from a left-wing corner and it flies harmlessly wide.
