What is happening elsewhere in the Championship?

Leeds United's hunt for a manager looks set to reach its conclusion imminently, while the futures of many other managers in the Championship remain up in the air.

Cardiff City and Fulham are on the lookout for new managers, having dispensed with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Felix Magath respectively last week.

Jose Riga's future at Blackpool remains up for discussion but looks to be increasingly safe, particularly after masterminding a 0-0 draw at Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend, but pressure remains firmly on Dougie Freedman at Bolton Wanderers after a woeful string of results.
