|WEEKEND FIXTURES IN FULL
League leaders Cardiff City travel to Nottingham Forest as Malky Mackay's men look to extend their three-match winning run, while Leicester City, who are currently second after five straight victories, play Birmingham City away from home.
Another in-form side are Crystal Palace, who have not lost a game in the Championship since August, and Dougie Freedman's men host Millwall at Selhurst Park. Wolves have also hit form under Stale Solbakken, winning five of their last six league games, and they face a trip to Huddersfield Town, who have won just two matches at home this season.
Blackburn Rovers are still searching for Steve Kean's replacement following the Scot's resignation last month, meaning Eric Black will continue to take charge for his side's trip to Derby County. Bolton are also on the hunt for a new boss after Owen Coyle's sacking and they host Bristol City at the Reebok Stadium.
Ipswich Town have not secured a win in the Championship since August and they travel to Hull City this weekend. Meanwhile, Peterborough are currently propping up the table after sealing just six points from 10 games this term and face a trip to Watford.
Brighton are without a victory in three games and Gus Poyet's men will be looking to reverse that form as they host Middlesbrough on Saturday.
Charlton have struggled for goals at The Valley this season and have secured just one win at home in the Championship all season. Chris Powell's men host Barnsley this weekend.
Blackpool have lost three out of their last four Championship fixtures and Ian Holloway's men will be aiming to turn that record around as they travel to Burnley.
