What is happening elsewhere in the Championship?

Leeds United's hunt for a manager is still alive as they seek a successor to Dave Hockaday, while the futures of many other managers in the Championship remain up in the air as Cardiff City prepare to dismiss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The pressure has alleviated on both Bolton Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman - after his side's 3-2 win over Rotherham United - and Blackpool's Jose Riga with chairman Karl Oyston performing a u-turn on his decision to sack the Belgian.

Fulham could also soon be the subject of a managerial departure with lingering doubts over the future of Felix Magath, with his Cottagers side rock bottom of the division.

Plus, there are plenty of transfer rumours continuing to do the rounds with the loan window presenting an opportunity for managers to bolster their squads.
