Live Sky Bet Championship coverage continues on Saturday lunchtime when Sheffield Wednesday take on Hull at Hillsborough, before nine more fixtures get under way at 3pm.

Among them is Rotherham's trip to Brentford in a match which will see manager Neil Redfearn lead out the Millers for the first time.

One place below Rotherham are Bolton, and Neil Lennon and his men will make the short trip to a Burnley side who have suffered just one defeat in their last seven.

Brighton still possess the only unbeaten record in The Football League - the table-toppers go to Leeds, where they have won on three of their last four visits.

There's a first Football League meeting between Milton Keynes and Blackburn, although the Dons did defeat Rovers in the Capital One Cup in 2012, while Preston face Cardiff for the first time in five years.

Elsewhere, there's a 40th encounter between Reading and Charlton, with the head-to-head honours even at 14 wins apiece.

To conclude the Championship action, Derby and Wolves, who are separated by two points and two places going into Matchday 11, will face off for the 148th time in a 1:15pm kick-off on Sunday, a game also shown live on Sky Sports.
