What is happening elsewhere in the Championship?

Malky Mackay is the new Wigan Athletic manager, with chairman Dave Whelan appointing the former Cardiff City boss despite an ongoing FA investigation into his alleged part in sending texts of a homophobic, racist and sexist nature during his time with the Bluebirds.

Mackay replaces Uwe Rosler, with the 46-year-old sacked after a poor run of form which has left the Latics in the bottom three and with just three wins from 17 league games.

The pressure remains on Brighton and Hove Albion chief Sami Hyypia after also only being able to amass a triplet of league successes, with the Seagulls just a point above Wigan in 20th.

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.
