If you think you've been treated to plenty of live football already this season, just wait until you see this line-up of matches hitting your screens via Sky Sports in the coming week.

There's an npower Championship double-header over the weekend as Middlesbrough visit table-toppers Blackburn Rovers on Friday night and Birmingham City host Barnsley on Saturday evening.

Tony Mowbray's Boro will travel to Ewood Park for the 7.45pm kick-off hoping to bounce back from their 4-1 defeat at the hands of Blackpool on Tuesday but Steve Kean's Rovers are the form side in the npower Championship, with 14 points from their last six matches.

The two clubs have crossed paths several times over the years, with both spending prolonged spells in the Premier League together. Their last three fixtures have ended level but the six before that were all won by Blackburn. You have to go back to February 2005 to find the last time Middlesbrough overcame the Lancashire side - a Franck Queudrue goal giving the Boro a win at the Riverside.

In the second leg of the weekend double, Barnsley will be on the hunt for their first away points of the season as they travel to St Andrews for a 5.20pm kick-off.

Birmingham City will be a tough nut to crack, though, as they seem to have finally jump-started their npower Championship season with seven points from their last three matches. The Blues have history on their side, too, having won 35 times against the Tykes in the 73 meetings between the two.

Sunday will give you a chance to put your feet up but the npower Championship is back on Monday as the Sky Sports cameras make the trip to Bloomfield Road to see Ian Holloway's Blackpool take on Simon Grayson's Huddersfield Town.

The Tangerines are flying high in second and have won their first three home games, scoring 12 goals and conceding just two, while the Terriers have made a good start to life in the npower Championship following promotion from npower League 1 last term - they currently sit sixth, with 11 points.

That's not all, though, as the Capital One Cup returns with two live instalments from Round 3 next week.

On Tuesday, Leeds United host David Moyes' Everton in a 7.45pm kick-off while on Wednesday, also at 7.45pm, there's an all-Premier League affair at Old Trafford as four-time winners Manchester United take on Newcastle United.

As the Capital One Cup Round 3 draws to a close, take a breather because it will soon be time to start all over again with the next set of live Football League matches...
