Haim are currently just 28 copies behind Justin Timberlake in the race for the Number One slot on the UK Official Album Charts.

Earlier this week, the LA sisters' debut 'Days Are Gone' was just 700 copies behind the pop star's 'The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2', but is now closing the sales gap. The winner of this week's chart battle will be revealed on BBC Radio 1 this Sunday (October 6).

As of Wednesday's midweek chart update (October 2), Arctic Monkeys remain in the top five with 'AM' at Number Five. Kings Of Leon, who were last week's Number One, fall to Number Three with their album 'Mechanical Bull' while US metal band Alter Bridge are new at Number Four with their latest album 'Fortress.' Other new entries are due from Dizzee Rascal (9), Sub Focus (10), Status Quo (18), Moby (21), Metallica (25), Kids In Glass Houses (27), The Answer (29), All Time Low (37), Johnny Flynn (38) and Turin Brakes (39).

New entries in the Official Single Chart are set to come from The Vamps at Number One with their debut single 'Can We Dance', which is today (October 4) just 6,000 copies ahead of OneRepublic's track 'Counting Stars'. Other new entries include Chase & Status with their track 'Count On Me' as well as tracks from Nelly, Lucy Spraggan, Two Door Cinema Club, Fuse ODG and Maxsta.
