After the drama of round 13 when Newcastle moved top of the table after slip ups by Norwich and Huddersfield, the action moves to match-day 14.
Newcastle have impressed in the opening stages of the league and will head into the clash with Ipswich chasing a fifth successive win. Number 4 in that run came midweek when two goals from the in-form Dwight Gayle helped the Magpies to a 2-0 win over Barnsley.
The win moved Rafa Benitez’s side top of the table, a point ahead of Norwich as it gets very tight at the top of England’s second tier.
The Canaries lost their hold on top spot following a 2-2 draw away to Fulham. Despite leading 2-0 at the break, Alex Neil’s side were caught in the second half as Stefan Johansen and Chris Martin scored for the Cottagers.
Next up for the Norfolk side is a home tie with Preston North End. Preston will be full of confidence after beating fourth place Huddersfield 3-1 on Wednesday so things will not be so straight forward for Alex Neil’s die this afternoon.
The Terriers for their part have now lost 3 of their last 5 games and they will hope to get back to winning ways when they face Derby at home. There is a new confidence and optimism around the ipro since Steve McLaren returned and Rams fans will be hopeful of putting more pressure on the early Championship front runners.
In between Norwich and Huddersfield sit Brighton. Along with Ipswich, Chris Hughton’s side boast the best defensive record in the division with just 9 goals conceded. A 1-0 win over Wolves midweek moved them to within 3 points off the top and they will hope to keep the pressure on the leaders when they travel to face Wigan.
Birmingham and Sheffield Wednesday complete a very competitive top 6. The Blues surprised many last season with their form and they have continued that this campaign, winning 6 and lost just 2 of their opening 13 games. They faced Burton in the Friday night game but lost out 2-0, putting a dent in their playoff credentials.
The Owls meanwhile are chasing a fourth win in six against QPR, which could be a cracker.
Elsewhere Wolves host Leeds, Cardiff, unbeaten under their new manager Neil Warnock, face Nottingham Forest in the evening kickoff.
The Royal of Reading travel to Rotherham, Brentford take on Barnsley.
Draw specialists Aston Villa are up against Fulham with Steve Bruce looking to turn things around for the Midlands club.
Bristol City play Blackburn Rovers in a very busy Saturday coupon.
