Brighton & Hove Albion v Cardiff City 19:45
Reading v Fulham 20:00

Wednesday 25th January 2017 – CHAMPIONSHIP
Leeds United v Nottingham Forest 19:45

Playing the game in hand they have Brighton have the chance to return to the top of the Championship and open up a two point advantage over current title rivals Newcastle. However, in order to achieve this Albion – beaten only one in the last 10 in the Championship – will have to overcome a Cardiff side on a role. The Bluebirds will head to the Amex Stadium unbeaten in four – having won the last three – looking to move into a position around midtable.

The other game on Tuesday will see Reading and Fulham try again in another game that was also previously postponed ahead of the end of last year. Back-to-back defeats have seen the Royals faced with the prospect of slipping out of the top 6 with the Cottagers aiming to return from the Madjeski Stadium with the points to move to within a couple of points of the play-off places.

Wednesday will see Leeds aiming to recover from a first defeat in seven – only a second in the last 10 – that saw automatic promotion aspirations take a blow but they’re still in a strong play-off position. Nottingham Forest are heading to Elland Road looking to make it back-to-back wins having won at the weekend – the only win in the last 10 – to increase the five point gap between them and the relegation zone.

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We’ll find out soon enough.

Ahead of the game we’re looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which requires you to vote in the latest poll in one of the options you have been given.

However, don’t just look also have a say. We don’t just want your vote, which you can do to the right, we also want some thoughts and views ahead of the game as well so share these below.
