EFL decide dates for top-tier shoot-out

The EFL have today announced their provisional play-off timings for the Sky Bet Championship.

After the regular season ends on Sunday, four teams – including the Royals – will contest a shoot-out for top-tier promotion!

Our 1-0 win against Wigan at the weekend ensured our place in the top six of the Championship and a chance to extend our season for up to three games… with the prize for one team being Premier League football in 2017/18.

Sheffield Wednesday, Huddersfield Town and Fulham occupy the other three positions.  The Owls host Fulham this Sunday and Huddersfield host Cardiff, while we end our campaign with a visit to Burton Albion.

Here’s how the top of the table looks after 45 games…

And these are the provisional dates that the EFL have set for the play-off campaign…
