Cardiff appointed the experienced Neil Warnock as new boss during the international break after parting company with Paul Trollope, he starts with a home match against Bristol City who are going along nicely since returning to this level on Friday.

Nottingham Forest also play on the Friday night with Birmingham visiting Birmingham as Forest play a first match since they lost a member of staff as they saw the director of football walk away.

After such an impressive run to start with Barnsley tailed off a little of late so the international break would have been a relief to them with them playing host to Fulham on Saturday, Blackburn are another side with home advantage as Owen Coyle’s struggling side aim to return with a rate Ewood Park win over Ipswich.

Goals haven’t often been seen when Brighton and Preston have met, in fact that last four-matches have been nil-nil draw with the Seagulls looking to keep up a promotion push at the Amex Stadium.

Steve McClaren, some 17-months after he was sacked to eventually become Newcastle boss, returned to Derby this week and he starts with a match at the iPro Stadium against Leeds. His former side, who were relegated from the Premier League despite his sacking, Newcastle face a Brentford side who will travel to St James’ Park with confidence but Rafa Benitez’s side have recovered from a poor start to be very much battling for automatic promotion now.

The meeting between Norwich and Rotherham will see a side looking to get back into the Premier League hosting a Millers side who are battling just to remain in the Championship once again this season, struggling in the bottom three at the moment.

A midlands derby between Aston Villa and Wolves will see Steve Bruce start his new job as boss of Villa at Villa Park against a Walter Zenga, who some reports say could be under pressure….

Heading into the weekend matches the Championship leaders have to wait until midday on Sunday when Huddersfield welcome Sheffield Wednesday to the John Smith’s Stadium knowing a win will keep the Terriers top regardless of what others do before them.

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!
