Brentford 2-0 Southampton: Southampton are in danger of shipping an absolute hiding at Brentford, who lead 2-0 and have missed several glorious chances. Already on the scoresheet, Yoane Wissa has just fired over an empty goal.

Scottish Premiership

Celtic tightened their grip on the title and are effectively champions after coming from a goal down to beat Hearts 4-1 at Celtic Park. Mathematically speaking, Rangers can still overtake them but only if Celtic lose their final two games and their Glasgow rival make a goal difference of over 20 in their last three. Rangers, who one presumes have more pressing Europa League and Scottish Cup matters on their minds, host Dundee United tomorrow.

Women’s Super League

This season’s WSL reaches its denouement tomorrow, with Chelsea in the box-seat to take the title, but Arsenal still hopeful of overtaking them on the final day of the season. Read on …

League Two

Forest Green and Exeter City have already booked their places in League One next season but a home win for Exeter against Port Vale will send them up as champions.

There’s a five-way battle for the third automatic promotion spot which is currently occupied by Northampton Town on 77 points, who have Bristol Rovers (77), Mansfield (76), Port Vale (75) and Swindon Town (74) breathing down their necks in the play-off places.

Sutton United (73) and Tranmere Rovers (72) are also harbouring hopes of making the play-offs but will have to rely on teams above them dropping points. At the bottom of the table, Oldham Athletic and Scunthorpe have already been consigned to the drop.

The Championship

It’s the final round of fixtures and Fulham and Bournemouth have already secured automatic promotion, with the team from Craven Cottage guaranteed to go up as champions following their 7-0 win over Luton Town. At the other end of the table, Derby County, Barnsley and Peterborough United are already relegated.

In the battle for the play-off places, which kicked off at 12.30pm (BST), Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield Town have already booked their berths, while Sheffield United and Luton occupied fifth and sixth spots before kick-off. They can still be overtaken by one or both of Middlesbrough or Millwall and Scott Murray has the latest on the final day twists and turns …

Saturday Clockwatch …

There are six Premier League fixtures slated for today, four of which kick off at 3pm. Brentford host Southampton in a game with little or nothing at stake for either side, while fans at Turf Moor will hope to witness a Burnley win over Aston VIlla as the Clarets continue their heroic attempt to beat the drop.

At Stamford Bridge, victory for Chelsea over Wolves would go a long way towards cementing their place in the top four, while anything less than a win for Watford at Crystal Palace will result in a relegation that is already signed and sealed but not quite delivered even if the postman is already knocking loudly on the door.

Meanwhile in League Two, the final round of fixtures kicks off this afternoon and with one automatice promotion spot and the play-off places up for grabs, we’ll keep an eye on proceedings in the fourth tier.
