Sky Bet Championship: Matchday 33 Preview

26 February 2016

There are 11 games taking place in the Sky Bet Championship on Matchday 33 with leaders Hull City kicking off the action against Sheffield Wednesday in Friday night's televised Sky Sports fixture.

Steve Bruce's side have the opportunity to move four points clear at the top, for 24 hours at least, when they take on the Owls who themselves could jump up to fifth with maximum points.

Second-placed Burnley play Bolton Wanderers at the Macron Stadium on Saturday with Middlesbrough taking on Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Here's a full schedule of the Sky Bet Championship fixtures on Matchday 33. All matches are 3pm kick-offs unless otherwise stated:

Friday 26th February

Hull City v Sheffield Wednesday (7.45pm - live on Sky Sports)

Saturday 27th February

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Derby County (12.30pm - live on Sky Sports)
Blackburn Rovers v MK Dons
Bolton Wanderers v Burnley
Cardiff City v Preston North End
Charlton Athletic v Reading
Fulham v Middlesbrough
Huddersfield Town v Ipswich
Nottingham Forest v Bristol City
Queens Park Rangers v Birmingham City
Rotherham United v Brentford

Burnley, unbeaten in 10, are currently second but any slip up from Hull could see Sean Dyche's men lead the pack by the end of play on Saturday if they can overcome relegation-threatened Bolton. 

However, should the leading duo both fail to win then Middlesbrough could return to the summit with victory over Fulham. Brighton & Hove Albion can keep up the pressure if they can beat Leeds United on Monday evening.

Derby County remain in the Play-Offs and they can cement their position with victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers, who are without a win in seven, in the early kick-off at Molineux. The game is live on Sky Sports.

Outside the top six, two in-form sides clash in the Welsh capital as Cardiff City, unbeaten in 12 at home in the Sky Bet Championship, entertain a Preston North End side who have won their last four.

At the bottom, Charlton Athletic play Reading at The Valley while Rotherham United, still looking for their first win under Neil Warnock, welcome Brentford to the New York Stadium.
