It's live games galore this coming week with four matches being screened on Sky Sports.

All the match action begins on Saturday evening as Bristol City meet Hull City at Ashton Gate in the npower Championship.

It's been a contrasting start for the two sides, with the Tigers sitting eighth and the Robins down in 21st, but they both come into the televised 5.20pm kick-off having tasted defeat in their respective midweek fixture.

Steve Bruce's Hull were on the end of a 2-0 loss at Middlesbrough, while Bristol City were defeated 4-3 on home soil by managerless Burnley.

There's three valuable points on offer for either side in this one, and they will both be eager to take them for very different reasons. The Tigers will want to the points to get themselves back in the Play-Off picture but Derek McInnes' men need them to pull away from the bottom three.

Sunday provides a day of rest from live football but it's straight back in the deep end on Monday evening as Portsmouth travel to Bramall Lane to take on npower League 1 high-flyers Sheffield United.

While the Blades have mounted another promotion push, Portsmouth look like they have finally adapted to life in League 1. They recorded four wins and a draw before they were beaten 2-1 by second-placed Stevenage in midweek. The narrow scoreline suggests they weren't too far away from getting a result against Gary Smith's men, and that will give them confidence ahead of the match against the only unbeaten side left in The Football League.

Portsmouth were the winners in the last meeting between the two, in 2011, but neither side have recorded successive wins against the other for over 10 years. Sheffield United were the victors in 1999 and then again in 2000, before Portsmouth won the meeting in 2001 to restore the topsy-turvy nature of the fixture, which remains to this day.

That's the last of the live Football League action on Sky Sports over the week but it doesn't end there, as the Capital One Cup returns, in the shape of Round 4.

There's two live all-Premier League ties with Arsenal visiting Reading on Tuesday at 7.45pm and Chelsea hosting Manchester United 24 hours later, in what is arguably the tie of the Round.

Both games promise to be exciting fixtures, especially as a win would take them one step closer to this season's Wembley showdown.
