The relentless pace of the Championship means the action continues over the weekend, starting with leaders Wolves at home to Fulham on Friday.
Following a minor blip, Nuno Santo’s men bounced back by winning at Norwich and will expect another triumph at Molineux, despite the rumours linking the boss with Everton. In contrast, the Cottagers look less and less like the promotion candidates we all thought they’d be and are without a win in four.
Saturday’s early game is the Severnside derby and unlike in previous years, both Bristol City and Cardiff are in the promotion hunt.
Midweek wins have boosted both sides and this is sure to be a fiery one. However, having won the last three meetings, including their last two trips to Ashton Gate, perhaps back Neil Warnock’s men to grind out a victory at 13/10.
The pick of the games at three is the Yorkshire derby between Sheffield United and Hull City.
Having lost at QPR in the week, the Blades will be keen to bounce back and are playing a side whose manager, the brilliantly idiosyncratic Leonid Slutsky, has admitted he would not be surprised if he’s sacked so pick the home win at 20/23.
Finally to Sunday’s match when we have the Tees-Wear derby with resurgent Middlesbrough hosting Sunderland.
Just for a change, rather than ponder why a lack of investment has led to their poor start, the Black Cats board have instead sacked their latest victim, Simon Grayson.
11 managers in nine years is good going so rather than look at this as a chance for them to bounce back, just accept their squad is dire and go straight for the home win to zero at 27/20.
