What is happening elsewhere in the Championship?

Cardiff City are expected to formally appoint Russell Slade imminently, although his switch from Leyton Orient is being held up for legal reasons.

Fulham are now the only side in the division on the lookout for a new manager, having dispensed with the much-maligned Felix Magath last wee but interim boss Kit Symons did his chances of landing the position full time no harm at all with a 2-1 win at Birmingham City at the weekend.

Jose Riga's future at Blackpool looks to be increasingly safe, but pressure remains firmly on Dougie Freedman at Bolton Wanderers after a woeful string of results.

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.
