Championship: Promotion rivals square off

West Brom and Watford both have their sights set on promotion this season and they will battle it out for victory at the Hawthorns on Monday.

Champions League: Rangers staring at Champions League exit

Rangers entered the Champions League at the third qualifying round but, having lost their first-leg 2-0 on the road at Union Saint-Gilloise, they face a battle to advance any further.

Rugby League: Struggling duo square off in Super League

The Super League relegation fight is proving to be extremely interesting and Thursday's meeting between Warrington and Toulouse could have a big say on who goes down.

Toulouse, who came up to the top flight ahead of this season, found their groove in July, winning three successive games. However, they've since lost three in a row.

A fourth successive loss, especially against a relegation rival in Warrington, could all-but end their hopes of surviving.

Warrington eased to a 32-18 victory in February's reverse fixture and will hope to repeat that feat at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Friday 12th August

Rugby League: Super League stages double-header

There's further Super League action to enjoy on Friday with two games both scheduled for 20:00.

Cas lost their last outing on home soil, going down 32-6 to Wakefield, but that was just their third defeat at The Jungle this term and they'll be confident of bouncing back.
