Midweek TV Preview: 16 - 19 May 2011

Monday 16 May

19.45 Swansea City v Nottingham Forest, Championship Playoff Semi-Final 2nd Leg, Sky Sports 1/HD1
Could the Premier League be soon to feature its first Welsh club? Could the Championship playoff final feature both Swansea and Cardiff? We didn't get much of a clue from Thursday's goalless first leg, but it's now a straight win-and-in shoot-out.

Tuesday 17 May

19.45 Cardiff City v Reading, Championship Playoff Semi-Final 2nd Leg, Sky Sports 1/HD1
Like their South Wales rivals, Cardiff play their second leg at home after a 0-0 draw in the first. An all-Wales final remains a distinct possibility.

Wednesday 18 May

19.45 Braga v Porto, Europa League Final, Five/Five HD
This season's Europa League culminates in an all-Portuguese affair in Dublin. Braga will be the underdogs, but edged out compatriots Benfica on away goals in the semi-final. Porto's first leg thrashing of Villarreal set them up nicely to cruise into the final.
19.45 Huddersfield Town v AFC Bournemouth, League One Playoff Semi-Final 2nd Leg, Sky Sports 1/HD1
After near-doom, points deductions, a transfer embargo and the loss of a brilliantly talented manager, it's a miracle that the Cherries are even in League One, let alone trying to get out of it the right way. A 1-1 draw here leaves home advantage with Huddersfield.

Thursday 19 May

19.45 Peterborough United v Milton Keynes Dons, League One Playoff Semi-Final 2nd Leg, Sky Sports 1/HD1
The winners of Huddersfield v Bournemouth will face the winner of this clash, and MK Dons are in the driving seat. Grant McCann's late penalty for Posh gives them hope.
