Brentford v Cardiff City
Both sides will be desperate to pick up three points in this one after losing last time out. Brentford lost 1-0 late on away to Leeds United, while Cardiff were on the wrong end of a seven-goal thriller with Barnsley, losing 4-3.
Ipswich Town v Fulham
Ipswich Town ended their three-match wait for a win last time out by beating Wigan 3-2 away from home. Fulham remain in and around the playoffs currently in 9th and are unbeaten in their previous four outings and I expect them to come away with a result from this one.
Wolves v Bristol City
Wolves were excellent last time out as they won 2-0 at Nottingham Forest, making it just one defeat in their last four outings. Bristol City lost their fourth game on the bounce last weekend after going down 2-1 at home to Preston North End making this a huge game to stop the rot.
Aston Villa v Burton Albion
This midlands clash will see the two sides meet in league action for the very first time. Steve Bruce's Villa have steadily climbed the table, finding themselves six points off the top six here and I'm expecting them to get a victory in this one.
Preston v Leeds
Preston have been in decent form as of late, picking up seven points from a possible nine in their previous three clashes as Simon Grayson takes on his former club. High-flying Leeds moved up to 5th last weekend after persisting to beat Brentford 1-0 late on at Elland Road, with Garry Monk's side looking good for a top-six finish.
Newcastle v Sheffield Wednesday
Newcastle's surge towards the Premier League title continued last time out, beating Burton Albion 2-1 away from home, their third win in succession. Sheffield Wednesday have won four of their last five matches and are in great form coming into this one, although this will be a huge test of their credentials.
Barnsley v Blackburn
Barnsley's 4-3 win over Cardiff last time out will have given the side a real confidence boost, moving them up to 12th in the table. Blackburn, on the other hand, were beaten in the dying embers against Reading 3-2 and enter this weekend in the bottom three.
Reading v Norwich
Reading returned to winning ways last time out with a 3-2 victory over Blackburn Rovers, thus consolidating their place in 3rd in the table. Norwich's struggles continued, losing 2-1 to Huddersfield to leave them 10th, making Reading's price particularly generous for the punter here.
Brighton v QPR
Brighton's late showing saw them keep pace with leaders Newcastle as Glenn Murray's stoppage-time winner saw them beat Birmingham City 2-1 away from home. QPR have lost five on the bounce coming into this one and look desperately short of confidence and ideas under Ian Holloway, who is yet to have the desired impact.
Huddersfield v Nottingham Forest
Those who wrote off Huddersfield may now regret doing so, with the Terriers now going unbeaten in their last four, winning three in a row. Forest meanwhile are without a win in three and are struggling at this moment in time.
Rotherham v Wigan
Rotherham remain by far the poorest side in the Championship, with their lack of luck shown after losing 1-0 in stoppage time to Sheffield Wednesday. Wigan too are in terrible form, losing four on the bounce in recent weeks and this is a real six-pointer for both sides.
Derby v Birmingham
Derby's winning streak came to an end last time out, drawing 2-2 with Fulham away from home, leaving them a point off the top six. Gianfranco Zola's first game as Birmingham boss started brightly but ended in a 2-1 defeat to Brighton, as the club looks to move forward from the sacking of the popular Gary Rowett.
