This weekend’s action all gets underway on Friday evening as Brighton host Leeds United. This should be a fierce contest between two teams chasing a play-off spot this season. As things stand they sit 10th and 11th respectively with both on 19 points.
It is a tough one to call and a great way to start the weekend. You then have a typically busy Saturday afternoon in the Championship with no less than ten matches getting underway at 10pm.
When it comes to picking out the stand-out games in this league, you could probably select any fixture and that is the beauty of the Championship. It is however worth noting that 2nd placed Leicester City travel to Watford, while 3rd placed Middlesbrough face a tough trip to Charlton.
Nottingham Forest and Millwall – both of whom share play-off ambitions – are involved in a fascinating battle at the City Ground. Crystal Palace – who recently lost manager Dougie Freedman – are then at home to another team without a manager, Blackburn. Anything could happen in this one.
Elsewhere, Ipswich begin life after Paul Jewell at Birmingham,with new manager Mick McCarthy taking over the reigns at Portman Road, Burnley host Wolves, Derby and Blackpool go head to head, Huddersfield are at home to Bristol City and struggling duo Sheffield Wednesday and Peterborough are in action at Hillsborough.
The final two games to look at should be excellent. First of all, Hull – who sit 6th going into this weekend – are at home to Barnsley, a team that has only won once since their tremendous 5-0 win at Birmingham back in December.
Rounding off the weekend’s action is a 5.20pm kick-off between Bolton and Cardiff. This has all the makings of a classic with Dougie Freedman taking charge of Wanderers for the first time against a Cardiff side that sit top of the table after five wins in their last six games – it should be a cracker at the Reebok as Malky MacKay’s side look to consolidate their narrow lead at the top of the table.
Expect goals, individual errors, controversial moments and plenty of twists and turns. Just another normal weekend in the Championship!
