Manish Bhasin, Mark Lawrenson and Lee Dixon look ahead to another busy weekend of football as the 2008/9 season enters its final stages.

Manchester United visit Middlesbrough, where they famously lost 4-1 in 2005, while Alan Shearer faces his most daunting trip yet as Newcastle manager, with a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool. Chelsea host West London neighbours Fulham, who have come away from Stamford Bridge with creditable draws in the past two seasons.

It is the final weekend of fixtures in the Football League, so it is bound to be a dramatic couple of days, with teams battling to earn promotion and fighting to avoid relegation. By tea-time on Sunday, when the last round of Championship matches are concluded, we will know which clubs are on their way down, which have gained automatic promotion, and which will be doing battle in the play-offs later in the month.
