A Saturday evening highlights show of all Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two games will be show on Channel 5 from next season - before BBC’s Match of the Day.

The highlights show will be screened from 9pm to 10.30pm on Saturdays - a big change from the graveyard slot the Football League Show currently has on the BBC - and will feature every single goal.

Football League chief executive Shaun Harvey said: “This is an exceptional opportunity for the Football League to work with a broadcaster that will schedule our matches in a prime-time slot.

“It will take our games to a wider, younger audience by giving us the chance to be first in front of fans on a Saturday night.”
