What is happening elsewhere in the Championship?

As we enter the latest international break, Derby County sit top of the pile after a thumping 5-0 win over fellow promotion contenders Wolves last weekend, with Middlesbrough and Bournemouth both missing the chance to go top 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 by winning 3-2 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.

The pressure grows 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.
