Stoke based unit Bet365 announced this morning that they are continuing to live stream a variety of fixtures from the Championship through their website.
Sheffield Wednesday are labelled as very slight 6/4 favourites to beat Leeds United in the Yorkshire derby whilst Ipswich and QPR clash in a bid to strengthen their promotion chances.
Despite being only a few miles from one another physically, Leeds and Sheffiedl Wednesday’s goals for the season seem worlds apart going into Saturday’s early clash.
Hosts Sheffield Wednesday are battling for their very survival and they find themselves in 20th place with just a one point cushion keeping them safe from the drop zone.
Going into the clash, Sheffield United could start with a new attacking line-up as Caolan Lavery is expected to start alongside Connor Wichkham after being recalled back from his loan spell at Plymouth earlier in the week.
Wednesday are still struggling somewhat with an injury crisis at Hillsborough with the likes of Michail Antonio, Kamil Zayatte and Lewis Buxton all those sidelined through injury for the derby clash.
On the other hand, Leeds are once again chasing their promotion dream and find themselves on the cusp of a playoff spot as they sit in eighth just one point off the final play-off spot.
Leeds have already been fairly active in the January transfer window and new signings Cameron Stewart and Jimmy Kebe could make their debuts at some point during the Yorkshire derby.
Meanwhile, former Sheffield United players Michael Brown and Michael Tonge could come back to haunt their arch-rivals as they both return from injury in time for the short trip down the M1.
In the other top clash on Saturday, Ipswich find themselves hosting QPR in a game which could be an early preview for a playoff game later on in the season.
Ipswich find themselves in the best form they have had for quite some time and currently occupy the final playoff spot in sixth having won nine times this season.
Mick McCarthy will be keeping an eye on both Daryl Murphy and Sylvain Ebanks-Blake who are both returning from injury and could be surprise inclusions in the matchday squad.
Despite rotating some players, McCarthy will hope to continue his good run of form that has seen The Tractor Boys remain unbeaten in their last nine fixtures.
Having started as strong title contenders, QPR’s challenge has faded somewhat in the last few weeks which has seen The Hoops drop down to third in the table and one point off the automatic promotion places.
Harry Redknapp will be keen to include some of his more experienced campaigners in the squad for the trip to Portman Road with Rob Green, Richard Dunne and Niko Krancjar all destined to start the game.
However, QPR will be without Junior Hoilett and Alejandro Faurlin who are the two biggest names that are currently on the injured list at Loftus Road.
