An exciting Championship season enters round 22 with a number of high profile fixtures as we’re all set for a busy few weeks of festive football.
The big game on Saturday takes place at the Amex Stadium where 2nd place Brighton put their 21 game unbeaten start to the season on the line against current leaders Middlesbrough in the lunchtime kickoff at 12:30.
Brighton have come through two difficult games in the last week, drawing 2-2 with both Derby and QPR while ‘Boro moved top of the table with a hard-fought win over Burnley midweek.
Both sides have been in good form this season but such is the competitive nature of the division that a share of the spoils could potentially see the club’s knocked down a place.
Third place Derby are just two points off the top and boast a better goal difference then both sides. They travel to Norfolk for a tricky test against 6th place Ipswich. The Tractors boys have beaten both the MK Dons and Fulham in their last two games to stay ahead of those on the fringe of the play-offs.
In between Derby and Ipswich, you have Hull and Burnley. Both have consistently being in the top 6 since the start of the season but will be keen to bounce back from some recent inconsistent form.
Hull have won just won one of their last four game and face second from bottom Rotherham in a Yorkshire derby while Burnley are without a win in 6 as they prepare to host third from bottom Charlton.
Of those on the fringes of the play-offs, only 10th place Brentford are in action on Saturday. Cardiff and Birmingham meet at St. Andrews on Friday while Sheffield Wednesday face Wolves on Sunday.
The Bees lost 3-2 at home to Cardiff midweek and will be keen to bounce back against Huddersfield. The club are on 29 points, five point behind 6th place Ipswich and they could climb up to 8th depending on results.
Elsewhere Bolton host Fulham, QPR travel to Bristol looking for a first win under Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Nottingham Forest take on the MK Dons.
We should be in for an absolute mouth watering afternoon of football in the Championship, and with Ipswich facing Derby and Brighton playing Middlesbrough the Championship title race could become much clearer come 5pm.
