An exciting Championship season will enter its 23rd game-day with a number of high profile games.
Arguably the game of the day sees QPR travel to Portman Road, with both sides now having realistic chances of promotion. Ipswich are the final team in the top 6 although Mick McCarthy’s side, with two defeats in four, are hanging on for dear life with just two points separating them from 10th place Brentford.
The ‘Tractor Boys’ have suffered two disappointing defeats to other promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough and Derby in their last two at home, so a third defeat would provide a serious dent in their promotion aspirations.
Things will not be easy however. The ship has been steadied at Loftus Road since the departure of Chris Ramsey, with Neil Warnock and now Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink at the helm, with Rangers now on a five match unbeaten run.
If QPR are to mount a serious challenge on Premier League promotion then much depends on striker Charlie Austin, and whether the club can keep hold of their star asset during the January transfer window.
The Boxing Day spectacle kicks off at 1pm with previously unbeaten Brighton traveling to Griffin Park to face Brentford.
The Seagulls saw their 22 game unbeaten run come to an end in dramatic fashion as they lost 3-0 to Championship leaders Middlesbrough at home last weekend. The result saw the South Coast slide out of the top 2, down to 3rd, although they remain just three points off the top.
Brentford meanwhile are just two points off the play-off places and have lost just 2 of their last 10 games.
Leaders Middlesbrough were due in action at the more traditional time of 3pm. Aitor Karanka’s side have been in good form in recent weeks, winning 5 of their last 6 games to move 2 points clear at the top. They faced improving Blackburn at Ewood Park, although this game has now been called off due to inclement weather.
Second place Derby meanwhile have scored five goals and conceded none in wins over Bristol City and Ipswich. They will hope for a fourth clean sheet in five when they face Fulham at home.
Burnley boss Sean Dyche insists his side are firmly on track to make a swift return to the Premier League. The Clarets have lost two of their last four games and face a tricky test away to Hull, currently fourth in the table, five points off the top.
Elsewhere Birmingham face a tricky task as they travel to Sheffield Wednesday, Cardiff are away to MK Dons, Rotherham face Bolton in a crucial six-pointer while Huddersfield are at home to Preston.
Bristol City take on Charlton, while in the evening kick off Wolves take on Reading.
It should be a cracking afternoon football with a bumper coupon to get stuck into!
