Both live Sky Bet Football League matches to be broadcast on Sky Sports this week come from Sky Bet League 1, starting on Saturday lunchtime in a top-of-the-table clash.

Second-placed Leyton Orient host Brentford, in third, in front of a sell-out crowd at the Matchroom Stadium with just one point separating the sides.

The O's won 2-0 at Port Vale on Tuesday night to make it 14 points from a possible 18, while the Bees were also victorious by the same scoreline, at home to Tranmere Rovers.

The reverse fixture at Griffin Park back in September was won by Orient, thanks to goals from David Mooney and Shaun Batt.

On Monday night, promotion-chasers Preston North End host a resurgant Sheffield United at Deepdale in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Preston, in fourth, are six points off an automatic promotion spot having been held to a draw by Stevenage on Tuesday. The visiting Blades weren't in action until Wednesday when they beat Carlisle United 1-0 for a 10th straight win in all competitions.

That was also their seventh consecutive clean sheet in League 1, and moved them up 10th, only eight points off the Play-Off pace.

There have been 108 previous meetings between the two clubs - Sheffield United lead the head-to-head 48 wins to 33, plus 27 draws.
