Sky Bet Championship: Matchday 15 preview

3 November 2015

There's a full midweek schedule in the Sky Bet Championship with all 24 teams in action on Tuesday evening.

Brighton & Hove Albion sit at the summit and remain unbeaten but face one of their biggest tests this term with a visit to in-form Sheffield Wednesday.

Here's a look at the Matchday 15 fixture list (kick-off times are 7.45pm unless stated):

Tuesday 3rd November

Birmingham City v Blackburn Rovers
Brentford v Hull City
Bristol City v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Burnley v Fulham
Derby County v Queens Park Rangers
Ipswich Town v Bolton Wanderers
Leeds United v Cardiff City
Middlesbrough v Rotherham United
Milton Keynes Dons v Charlton Athletic
Preston North End v Nottingham Forest
Sheffield Wednesday v Brighton & Hove Albion
Reading v Huddersfield Town

Carlos Carvalhal's Sheffield Wednesday haven't lost for 10 games in all competitions, and that run includes a victory over Premier League Arsenal in the Capital One Cup, which was followed by a 1-0 league win over Nottingham Forest at the weekend.

Brighton were held to a 1-1 draw at Reading last time out and that was their fifth draw in their last seven matches. They remain unbeaten, although their lead at the top is now only two points.

Second-placed Hull City are leading the chase for top spot - they meet Brentford for the first time in 10 years - and Burnley are level on points with the Tigers ahead of hosting Fulham.

Derby County have found form under Paul Clement to win seven of their last nine, while their Tuesday night opponents QPR have tasted success just twice in nine outings. This will be the first meeting between the pair since they locked horns under the arch at Wembley for the 2015 Championship Play-Off Final.

Elsewhere, Cardiff City face Leeds United, who they've not lost to since February 1984, and Middlesbrough face Rotherham United looking to preserve an unbeaten record against the Millers that stretches back to 1966.

Charlton are the division's out of form team – without a victory in 10, losing all of their last three 3-0 – and visit Milton Keynes Dons.
