Quotes from the dogfight

The tension is mounting at the foot of the Championship after weekend wins for Coventry City, Leicester and Blackpool heaped pressure on Sheffield Wednesday, Southampton, Barnsley and Norwich.

'Three more points would be perfect, one might do it too,' said Tykes boss Simon Davey as his side prepare to face Charlton, who have little to play for but pride.

Leicester face Sheffield Wednesday in a titanic showdown at the Walkers Stadium and manager Ian Holloway has urged Foxes fans to roar his team to safety.

'We showed passion and belief and need to show that again because we have done nothing,' he said after the vital win at Barnsley.

'There was unity there. The team played like the fans would have wanted them to.'

The Owls are now favourites to fall but still have to play Leicester and fellow strugglers Norwich.

'We might have to rely on other people's results, but it's going to be very tight because I think it is going to go to the last game,' boss Brian Laws told BBC Radio Sheffield.
