Sky Bet Championship – Matchday 21 preview

15 December 2015

Sky Sports' #10in10 is well under way and there's another series of live matches over the course of Matchday 21 in the Sky Bet Championship.

The cameras will be at Loftus Road for the latest instalment of Football League action on Tuesday, where Queens Park Rangers will go head-to-head with the undefeated leaders, Brighton & Hove Albion.

Here's a look at the Matchday 21 fixture list, with all matches kicking off at 7.45pm:

Monday 14th December

Blackburn Rovers 0-0 Nottingham Forest (#10in10 live on Sky Sports)

Tuesday 15th December

Cardiff City v Brentford
Charlton Athletic v Bolton Wanderers
Derby County v Bristol City

Thursday 17th December

Brighton extended their unbeaten run to 20 matches by drawing 2-2 with Derby County last time out, and that saw them stay top of the division on 42 points.

Rangers, meanwhile, are down in 13th but have picked up seven points from the last nine available, most recently sharing the spoils with Burnley in what was Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's dugout debut at the club.

The other #10in10 games on Matchday 21 see Hull host Reading on Wednesday, before Leeds visit Wolves for a clash in front of the cameras on Thursday.

After that draw with QPR, Burnley's next game is against fellow promotion-chasers Middlesbrough. While The Clarets are winless in five – drawing four of those – Boro have won six of eight and haven't conceded in 581 minutes at The Riverside in the Sky Bet Championship.

Derby sit fourth after that aforementioned draw with Brighton, ahead of their midweek match against Bristol City, who have lost in six of their last seven visits to the iPro.

The Robins are 19th in the standings, with Huddersfield Town and Charlton Athletic directly below them, and Milton Keynes Dons, Rotherham United and Bolton Wanderers occupying the bottom three.

And there are two significant matches involving those sides, as Huddersfield host Rotherham and Charlton entertain rock-bottom Bolton. Karl Robinson's Dons are at home to Sheffield Wednesday.
