A look ahead to the Sky Bet Championship weekend action

4 November 2021

All eyes will be transfixed on the Sky Bet Championship this weekend with a full schedule to look forward to, and you can find what's coming up all in one place as we preview the upcoming action...


Luton Town boss Nathan Jones will be reunited with his former team Stoke City this weekend when the Hatters welcome Michael O’Neill’s side to Kenilworth Road in our featured 3pm kick-off.

After the EFL’s only remaining unbeaten record was shattered by Preston North End in midweek, can League leaders Bournemouth bounce back against Russell Martin’s Swansea City? The Cherries are two points clear at the top but that could all change.

Blackburn Rovers will be looking to make amends when they entertain Sheffield United, with the Lancashire side having suffered a 7-0 defeat to Fulham earlier in the week.

Fulham, meanwhile, make the trip to Peterborough United. The Cottagers, who have notched 20 goals in the last five League encounters, will be out to extend their winning sequence to six games on the bounce.

Two points stand between fifth-placed Queens Park Rangers and tenth-placed Blackpool, but who will come out on top this weekend? The Tangerines slipped to a midweek defeat to Stoke City, whilst the Hoops secured maximum points away at Cardiff City.

And there’s a Yorkshire derby on the agenda, as Barnsley entertain Hull City in the Championship.

A midweek defeat to the Swans will see Coventry City vying to bounce back against a Bristol City side without a win in five this weekend. The Robins will also be looking to make up for a 3-0 loss to Birmingham City last time out on Tuesday evening.

Elsewhere, the Blues welcome Reading to St Andrew’s, with the Royals facing a fourth straight defeat.

Preston North End will be full of confidence when the Lilywhites hit the road to take on Nottingham Forest, looking to build on back-to-back wins. Forest, on the other hand, are without a win in three, sharing the spoils with Sheffield United during the week to add their first point to the board in November.

Neil Warnock’s managerial milestone didn’t quite go as planned, with Boro losing 3-1 to Luton during the week, but the long-serving boss has the chance to right those wrongs when the Teessiders travel to West Bromwich Albion. However, the third-placed Baggies will put up a fight, fresh off the back of a 1-0 win over Hull City in midweek.

Meanwhile, without a win since August, will Cardiff City overcome seventh-placed Huddersfield Town, or will the Bluebirds’ drought persist in South Wales?

And this weekend presents an opportunity for Millwall to break into the top six when they lock horns with Derby County.
