EMERGENCY LOAN: Matt Ingram from Hull City

Hull have just one game left of their Championship season, at home to Nottingham Forest, and are guaranteed to finish 18th or 19th, safe from relegation.

Ingram has played in 13 of the 18 games in charge of Shota Arveladze, taking advantage of Chelsea loan Nathan Baxter being injured in the first of them, and keeping his place when

Baxter regained his physical form. But Baxter has been restored to the XI in the previous three games.

Ingram’s contract expires in the summer. The club has the option to extend it for another year but has not yet done so, as have many players in a similar position.

Emergency loans are due for renewal on a week-to-week basis and Luton’s season could end on Saturday anyway, although the chances of it extending beyond that seem good.

If they lose at Craven Cottage, they will drop below Sheffield United on goal difference from fifth to sixth with a game to play.

Seventh-placed Middlesbrough are two points behind the pair, and Millwall a further three behind with a goal difference that is currently five fewer.

The team finishing fourth in the division, currently Huddersfield, will play the fifth-placed team in the play-off semi-finals, with third-placed taking on sixth-placed side over two games, with the winners meeting at Wembley on May 29. .

The Blades host Fulham on the final day of Saturday, with Middlesbrough at the Preston North End. Qualified Huddersfield play at home to Luton hosts Bristol City, Reading, and Millwall at Bournemouth. All matches will start at 12:30 p.m.
