What is happening elsewhere in the Championship?

Derby County are the new league leaders after a thumping 5-0 win over fellow promotion contenders Wolves, with Middlesbrough and Bournemouth both missing the chance to sit atop the league standings heading into the international break after playing out a 0-0 draw.

Brentford's astonishing start to life in this division continues, with the Bees moving into the top six with a weekend win at Millwall, while the pressure was alleviated from Stuart Pearce at Nottingham Forest as his side struck twice late on to beat Norwich City 2-1.

At the bottom, Gary Rowett continued his unbeaten start to life with Birmingham City with a 0-0 draw at home to Cardiff City, while Bolton Wanderers traded places in the bottom three with Wigan Athletic thanks to a 3-1 win at the Macron Stadium on Friday night.

The pressure remains on Latics boss Uwe Rosler, as well as Brighton and Hove Albion boss Sami Hyypia, whose side were only able to draw again - this time at home to Blackburn Rovers.

Plus, there are transfer rumours continuing to float around, with the loan window still open for business and presenting an opportunity for managers to bolster their squads.
