12th January 2018

The race for promotion intensifies during the months of February and March in both the Sky Bet Championship and Sky Bet League One, with nine EFL fixtures set to be screened exclusively on Sky Sports.
 
Norwich City welcome local rivals Ipswich Town to Carrow Road to kick off the live coverage on Sunday 18 February in what promises to be a hotly contested East Anglian derby.  A battle of promotion candidates takes place at Elland Road later in the day, with Leeds United hosting Lee Johnson’s Bristol City in a 4.30pm start, whilst Bury travel to Blackburn Rovers in Sky Bet League One action on the Monday night.
 
Leeds will then travel to Gary Rowett’s high-flying Derby County side for the midweek fixture on Wednesday 21 February, whilst there is a double dose of action set for Friday 23 and Saturday 24 February as Hull City face Sheffield United before Fulham welcome current Sky Bet Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers.
 
Tony Pulis’ Middlesbrough host Leeds the following Friday 2 March in a 7.45pm kick off, with Wolves looking to continue their formidable form against Reading the next day.
 
Both Leeds and Wolves feature again on Wednesday 7 March in the midweek offering at Elland Road to round off the latest selection of EFL coverage.
