Fixtures

Saturday 28th January 2017 – CHAMPIONSHIP
Norwich City v Birmingham City 15:00
Preston North End v Ipswich Town 15:00
Queens Park Rangers v Burton Albion 15:00
Reading v Cardiff City 15:00
Rotherham United v Barnsley 15:00

A very reduced schedule – due to FA Cup involvement for some – will see Norwich look for a third win in four that could take the Canaries up to 7th and just a couple of points behind a play-off place. Whereas Birmingham will head to Carrow Road looking to earn a first win under Gianfranco Zola.

They might have played a game more than others after this but if Preston – unbeaten in four – can record a win over Ipswich at Deepdale North End would be just two points from a top 6 place. The Tractor Boys’ run in the last seven would suggest – if it continues – they’ll go away with a victory though!

QPR are looking to extend an unbeaten run to five – with three of the previous four won – when Burton – who have lost seven of the last eight to drop into the bottom 3 – visit Loftus Road.

A chance to move back into 3rd will come for Reading – who could move to within six points of an automatic promotion spot – with a win over Cardiff. The Bluebirds have moved away from relegation trouble recently and will look for a reaction at the Madejski Stadium after a first defeat in five in midweek.

Bottom of the league Rotherham can’t really afford anything but a win at the New York Stadium to have any chance of staying in the Championship. Barnsley on the other hand could move to within a point of the play-offs should the Tykes win.

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.
