Here is how you can watch all of the midweek Championship live on Sky Sports on Tuesday, April 20 and Wednesday, April 21.

​​​​​​​Rotherham vs Middlesbrough, Wednesday 6pm - Live on Sky Sports Football

Last week's fixture pile-up understandably proved to be a challenge for Rotherham. Playing four games in the space of eight days will have taken its toll but Paul Warne will have been disappointed to have only taken four points, particularly given his side only lost the latter two games by a single goal.

There's not an awful lot left for Middlesbrough to play for in the closing weeks, but they will still be chasing a win for the first time since March 16 in order to cement a top half finish. Score draw, for me.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Live EFL

Huddersfield vs Barnsley, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button

Without stating the obvious, had they not collected that 2-0 win over Forest at the weekend, Huddersfield would be right in the middle of the relegation mire. Don't get me wrong, they aren't out of trouble yet, but there's now a healthy gap between the Terriers and the bottom three, which will provide a timely confidence boost.

Defeat to Coventry on Sunday will give Barnsley a reminder that a play-off spot is not yet secure. Closest rivals Reading haven't been in the best form for more than a month now but only trail them by four points so a win in the Yorkshire derby here would be massive.

Luton vs Reading, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button

Like Middlesbrough, with promotion and relegation ruled out, Luton's main focus is now on finishing in the top half of the table. They are in with a good chance, too, with a game in hand and having won six of the last 10, including that shock 1-0 win over rivals Watford.

As I mentioned, Reading are still in with a chance of a top six finish and, at the moment, it looks like a straight shootout between them and Barnsley, albeit that the Royals are in a slightly worse position. Veljko Paunovic will be desperate to finish the season with a flourish to give his side the best chance of sneaking back in at the 11th hour. I'm not sure they'll have enough here, though.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)
