        The standout games in the EFL this weekend

        EFL matches to look out for

        2023/03/16 16:12

        The Championship goes on a two-week hiatus after this match day due to the March international break. This is a look at an individual standout match from each of the three divisions in the EFL as we move towards the 2022/23 ‘run-in’…


        Blackpool vs Coventry City | 15:00 on Saturday

        In midweek, Mick McCarthy’s Blackpool hammered fellow strugglers Queens Park Rangers by six goals to one. The Seasiders’ much-needed victory means they begin this weekend’s round of fixtures sitting four points behind Cardiff City and potential safety. They now face a Coventry City side that, under the management of Mark Robins, were held to a 1-1 draw by bottom-of-the-table Wigan Athletic in midweek. The Sky Blues are six points adrift of Millwall, who are in sixth place in the playoffs and they are still pushing for a possible top six spot. 

        LEAGUE ONE

        Sheffield Wednesday vs Bolton Wanderers | 19:45 on Friday

        This is a massive ‘War of the Roses’ match at the top of League One on Friday evening. Sheffield Wednesday, under the management of Darren Moore, are unbeaten in their last 22 matches in the league and The Owls are targeting a tilt at a record-breaking points tally for the third-tier. Bolton Wanderers, on the other hand, had been challenging for automatic promotion until a recent run of just one win in their last five matches means The Trotters are now clinging on to a spot in the top six and the playoff places ahead of this weekend.



        LEAGUE TWO

        Carlisle United vs Stevenage | 15:00 on Saturday

        Any match between second and third, regardless of the league, is one to pay close attention to. Paul Simpson’s Carlisle United come into this on the back of a last minute win at Swindon Town in their most recent outing, last weekend. The Cumbrians have now enjoyed four successive victories. They now face a Stevenage side that, under the management of Steve Evans, have earned back-to-back victories in the last week and they are crucial wins after ‘Boro had stumbled quite badly for the previous month or so.
