We’re all set for a bank holiday bonanza from the Championship with a full coupon to get the pulses racing.
Newcastle will be looking to consolidate at the top of the division as they travel to Blackburn Rovers, with Rafa Benitez’s side now in pole position at the top of the table.
With Brighton’s match with Cardiff abandoned due the weather conditions, a 3-1 over Nottingham Forest at home enabled Rafa’s side to take over top spot going in to the New Year.
Due to the quality of the away side Benitez must make do without a few of his star players in Mohamed Diame, Chancel Mbemba and Christian Atsu, who are all way on African Cup of Nations duty, while Jonjo Shelvey remains suspended.
The Toon could be set for a tricky and abrasive encounter however, with Rovers gaining plenty of confidence over their draw with playoff hopefuls Huddersfield Town last time out.
Its difficult to see past the away win in this one however with Newcastle’s strength in depth and their price of 4/6 is sure to see plenty of attention.
Brighton themselves face an away trip against high scoring Fulham in West London. Both these sides had additional time off over the Christmas period with their games abandoned due to adverse weather conditions.
The Seagulls remain in a purple patch and its now 17 games unbeaten for Chris Hughton’s side, who remain close behind Newcastle in second place.
They should fancy their chances against the Cottagers, who were dealt a blow with the news that striker Chris Martin is wanted back at his parent club Derby, and 7/4 on the Brighton away win is a price dripping in value, all things considered.
Its been a tortuous few months for Norwich City fans, who have seen their side win only twice in their last twelve games.
Alex Neil’s side have slid down the table and now find themselves in a mid table twelfth position, and the pressure is really on the Scot to turn things around quickly.
Things could get even worse however as the Canaries face a resurgent Derby side under the management of Steve McClaren, who has guided his side to seventh place in the Championship following a run of ten games unbeaten.
They could easily make that eleven against a Norwich side looking to stop the rot.
There’s a Yorkshire derby in store as Garry Monk’s Leeds look to continue their fine form in front of their home fans as they take on struggling Rotherham. The Lilywhites now find themselves pushing for an automatic promotion spot and three points against the bottom side looks inevitable.
Elsewhere Wigan take on Huddersfield, Aston Villa travel to Cardiff, Birmingham take on Brentford, Nottingham Forest face Barnsley, QPR take on Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday play Wolves.
Strap yourselves in.
