Birmingham will hope a derby win against Wolves can inspire a better run of form. The Blues return to St Andrew’s with promotion chasing Leeds the visitors on Friday evening with the Whites looking to close the gap on the automatic promotion places.

A draw in the last game ended Nottingham Forest’s three game losing run with Forest hosting title-chasing Brighton on Saturday. Albion – having lost to title rivals Newcastle in midweek – could return to the top of the Championship for a few hours at least with a win at the City Ground.

Blackburn and Wigan meet in a huge relegation six pointer at Ewood Park. Victory for either and they could move out of the bottom three – a point for Rovers could be enough.

A third defeat in four in midweek for Bristol City means goal difference alone keeps the Robins out of the relegation zone. Anything but a win against Burton – who are unbeaten in three to move three points clear of trouble – and Lee Johnson’s side could end the day in the bottom three.

Derby’s six games without a win – four have been lost – means the Rams are unlikely to make the play-offs. Barnsley – eight points from the top six – still have aspirations of this when heading to the iPro Stadium.

Potential play-off rivals Fulham and Preston meet at Craven Cottage. A win for the Whites and the five points between them and the top six could be closed – a fourth in six for North End and the six keeping them from the play-offs could also be reduced.

Midtable sides Ipswich – who are unbeaten in five – and Brentford – who have won back-to-back games – meet at Portman Road.

Three defeats in five isn’t impressive form for QPR against a Cardiff side – having one three of their last four – that are in good form. A Bluebirds win at Loftus Road and they move closer to a top 10 spot.

Reading’s automatic promotion bid has been damaged by successive defeats. The Royals are still well placed for the play-offs though and will look to react against Wolves. Four straight defeats has seen Wolves – ahead of the trip to the Madejski Stadium – slip to within two points of the relegation zone.

16 points from safety – with an awful goal difference – Rotherham are near certain to go down. Aston Villa head to the New York Stadium seeking a third straight win to well and truly ease relegation concerns that had started to grow.

Sheffield Wednesday bid to avoid a third straight defeat. The Owls’ place in the top six will come under threat if Norwich are able to come away from Hillsborough with a win to revive the Canaries’ own play-off hopes.

The late kick off will see Huddersfield looking to extend the seven game unbeaten run to keep alive automatic promotion hopes. However, this latest challenge comes from table toppers Newcastle visiting the John Smith’s Stadium. The Magpies will be looking to return to the top of the Championship – if Brighton win – or extend their lead.

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.
