Brighton have a chance to close the gap on Newcastle at the top when they kick-off the Championship action after the international break when they play host to Aston Villa, who come to the Amex Stadium on Friday night in good form since Steve Bruce was appointed at Villa.

In the bottom three, and having seen new boss Warren Joyce start with a heavy defeat, Wigan head to Barnsley looking for an improvement in fortunes at Oakwell with Birmingham and Bristol fighting at the other end for play-off places when they meet.

Another side in the bottom three are Blackburn, the advantage of being at Ewood Park is something Rovers will want to make the most of when Brentford visit with the Bees looking for the points to push back into possible play-off contention.

Having suffered back-to-back defeats going into the break Neil Warnock, previously unbeaten since his appointment before that at Cardiff, will want the Bluebirds to get back on track when Huddersfield visit the Cardiff City Stadium. Town have had a bit of a wobble in recent weeks but still remain very much in the promotion push.

Rock bottom and in danger of being too far from getting out of trouble by Christmas time if they’re not careful, Rotherham head to Derby looking for some much needed points. With points also something Wolves will want in Paul Lambert’s first match in charge when he takes his side to Preston. Simon Grayson’s had PNE in good form with only one defeat in the last eight-matches in the Championship ahead of this one at Deepdale.

Burton’s step up to the Championship has seen them do better than many would have thought but Reading are going along well in fourth and have been in fine form at the Madejski Stadium with the Royals looking for another to keep pace with those above them.

Nottingham Forest’s season started with such promise but has disappointed for too long, next up they head to Portman Road to face Ipswich in the late kick-off on Saturday.

The fixtures are rounded off when Leeds and Newcastle meet at Elland Road. This match will see a tribute paid to the late Gary Speed with an 11th-minute applause in a match Rafa Benitez’s league leaders will want to win to (at least) maintain the gap they have at the top.

We can say it goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result.

But will this happen? We’ll find out soon enough!
