Grab your rattles and don your scarves because the Football League is back!
Seventy-two teams will head into the 2014/15 campaign looking to earn promotion to a higher division – though by next May nine will suffer the ignominy of relegation.
Sky Sports will be there every step of the way, with regular live games and our weekly highlights and analysis programme FL72-Review, as well as ample articles and features on skysports.com and our iPad and mobile apps.
Ahead of the big kick-off, we asked some of our Football League experts for their predictions and Matt Murray is the latest pundit to offer up his thoughts.
