Easter Monday could be a vital day in the Championship, we list what is at stake for teams in the division. CHAMPIONSHIP RELEGATION Preston  will be down if they lose and Crystal Palace win. Or they draw, Palace win at home to Leeds and Doncster avoid defeat at Barnsley Blades will be down if they lose and Palace avoid defeat, or if they draw and Palace win The Iron could draw level with Palace with victory over Millwall combined with an Eagles loss. Draws in both matches would leave a three point gap, but the London side have a much greater goal difference. Defeat for the Iron combined with a Palace win would leave the gap at six points with two games left. CHAMPIONSHIP PROMOTION QPR will be promoted if they beat Hull, point enough if Cardiff and Norwich both fail to win. Reading will secure a play-off place with a win over Sheffield United. Norwich and Cardiff are already assured of a top-six finish.   LEAGUE ONE Brighton are champions and heading to the Championship, with Southampton, Huddersfield and Peterborough assured of a play-off place. Swindon Town could be relegated with a loss at Sheffield Wednesday, combined with any one of Dagenham, Walsall or Bristol Rovers avoiding defeat in their matches. A point for the Robins in tandem with a win for any of those three would also see them heading to League Two.   LEAGUE TWO Alan Knill's old club Bury could be promoted if they claim a win at Chesterfield, who are already up, and either Wycombe or Shrewsbury drop points. A Spireites win would secure the title. Stockport will be relegated out of the Football League if they lose to Northampton. A draw combined with a Barnet win would also send them down.
