There’s a full schedule of EFL weekend action in the pipeline, as the Sky Bet Championship returns.
Preview what’s coming up across the Championship, Sky Bet League One and Sky Bet League Two, including the small matter of a handful of local derbies…
In the Championship, West London rivals Fulham take on Queens Park Rangers, as the Whites look to make amends for a chastening 4-1 defeat to Coventry City last time out. Rangers, meanwhile, will be looking to build on back-to-back wins against Birmingham City and Preston North End.
The weekend’s Yorkshire derby sees Huddersfield Town host Hull City. The Terriers are on the brink of breaking into the top six whilst the Tigers will be looking to pull away from the drop zone, building on a triumphant display in a 2-0 win against Middlesbrough.
And Boro are this weekend’s featured game, as Neil Warnock’s men go head-to-head with a Peterborough United side with just one win in their last nine League outings.
Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic renew their long-standing rivalry in League One this weekend. The University of Bolton Stadium will play host to the highly anticipated showdown, with third placed Wigan unbeaten in the last four meetings between the two teams, who last traded punches in the Carabao Cup in August which ended in a goalless draw.
Elsewhere, table toppers Plymouth Argyle make the trip to Oxford United, with the Pilgrims unbeaten since the opening weekend and coming into the fixture on the back of a win over Burton Albion.
Doncaster Rovers welcome Wycombe Wanderers to the Keepmoat Stadium. In contrasting fortunes, the South Yorkshire side sit bottom of the League One standings, whilst Wanderers are level with Plymouth in second place.
Sutton United make the short, 23-mile trip to Crawley Town in League Two, with the two teams level on 17 points. Sutton recorded an impressive, stoppage time win over Port Vale at the weekend, securing maximum points at the death in a 4-3 victory.
League leaders Forest Green Rovers will be hoping to return to winning ways against a Scunthorpe United side without a win in seven. The Gloucestershire team suffered defeat to Swindon Town last weekend, with Harrogate Town hot on Forest Green’s heels.
Harrogate, on the other hand, travel to Colchester United. The U’s have amassed 10 points so far this season, occupying 20th place, whilst their North Yorkshire opponents are unbeaten in their last four with two wins on the bounce.
