Starting from this weekend, clubs in the Championship, League One and League Two will see the number of changes that are allowed from three to five.

Regulation 33.4 has been amended to permit sides in the third tier to name up to seven substitutes in their matchday squad, with five able to take to the pitch from the bench.
