There's a whole host of matches live on Sky Sports to look forward to in the coming week as October ends with a bang.

The first game to be shown on Sky Sports takes place on Friday at 7:45pm, when Middlesbrough and Doncaster Rovers lock horns at the Riverside.

Boro have endured a relatively poor start to the campaign, with just two wins, and they dismissed Tony Mowbray on Monday.

His successor is yet to be found but Mark Venus will be in charge for the televised fixture against Paul Dickov's Rovers, who are level on points with Boro but sit one place lower, in 17th.

On Saturday at 12:15pm there's another Sky Bet Championship match on Sky Sports, with Barnsley hosting Sheffield Wednesday.

The two South Yorkshire clubs currently find themselves in the relegation zone but three points for either would be enough to lift them out of the bottom three, prior to the 3pm kick-offs.

The trio of live Championship matches is completed on Monday when Brighton and Hove Albion welcome Watford, and the Sky Sports cameras, to the Amex Stadium.

Both clubs made the Play-Offs last term but have experienced contrasting starts this time around. Last season's losing Play-Off finalists Watford are seventh and travel south after losing 3-2 to Derby County last time out, while the Seagulls sit 15th having managed just one win in eight.

This week's TV matches aren't restricted to League action, however, with the Capital One Cup returning on Tuesday in the form of Round 4.

Arsenal's match with Chelsea on Tuesday is the stand-out tie, and that will be screened on Sky Sports with a 7:45pm kick-off time.

The two have played each other numerous times over the years, including in the 2007 League Cup Final at the Millennium Stadium, when Chelsea ran out 2-1 winners to lift the trophy.

Two Premier League clubs also go head-to-head in front of the cameras in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday, with Manchester City visiting Newcastle United.

The pair have already come together this season - Manuel Pellegrini's men triumphed 4-0 - but it is in fact Newcastle who have the upper hand historically, winning 70 meetings compared to City's 60 victories, with the other 38 ending level.
