If Newcastle – looking for a third straight win – are able to see off Reading it would keep them at least four points clear at the top. A Royals win at the Madejski Stadium – where form is so impressive – would strengthen the play-off bid and leave automatic promotion possible.

Birmingham’s six defeats in eight is relegation form. The Blues should be safe from trouble with Wigan in need of the points – having failed to win in four – to close the four points between them and safety.

Tony Mowbray will look to make it three in a row as Blackburn boss at Ewood Park as Rovers aim to stay outside of the relegation zone. Victory over Cardiff – beaten for the first time in five at the weekend – would assure this with the Bluebirds looking to keep up a push for a top 10 finish.

Victory for Bristol City would give the Robins a chance to move out of the relegation zone. However, even that against Norwich might not be enough with the Canaries looking for the points at Ashton Gate to revive a possible play-off push.

Games are running out for Derby to overthrow the 10 points between them and a top six place. Preston have the better chance of this ahead of the meeting at the iPro Stadium but even North End – after a first defeat in five – are nine points adrift of the play-offs.

Fulham look for a fifth win in six against Leeds – who have won three of the four unbeaten the Whites are on – to keep alive their chances of making it into the play-offs. Victory could close the gap on Sheffield Wednesday to two points with a game in hand too.

A first defeat in eight for Huddersfield saw the chance to make up ground on Brighton – after a second successive defeat – in automatic promotion missed. The visit from Aston Villa – who have won three in a row – gives Town a chance to keep this possibility on.

Having won four in a row Ipswich – who are unbeaten in six with five of them drawn – will look to continue that unbeaten run against struggling Wolves. Five successive defeats has seen Wolves drop just a point and a place off the bottom three.

Nottingham Forest’s impressive win over promotion chasing Brighton at the weekend took them six points clear of the relegation zone. Forest welcome an in-form Brentford – who are unbeaten in three having won two – to the City Ground this midweek.

Three wins in four has made QPR’s likely Championship survival a near certainty now. The R’s welcome Barnsley – who are without a win in three – to Loftus Road looking to increase the nine point between them and trouble.

Rotherham’s latest defeat saw the gap to safety grow to 18 points. Brighton – despite back-to-back defeats – would be favourites to come away from the New York Stadium with the points to keep Albion in with a chance of winning the title – certainly finishing in the top two.

A positive Sheffield Wednesday reaction to successive defeats kept the Owls well placed to finish in the top six. Burton head to Hillsborough on a four game unbeaten run looking to remain at least three points clear of trouble.

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.
