What is happening elsewhere in the Championship?

The transfer window is open for just 12 more days, with deadline day this year falling on Monday February 2, so managers around the division will be desperately looking to make additions to their squad.

Brighton and Hove Albion have completed the loan signing of Blackburn Rovers striker Leon Best, who spent time on loan at Derby County earlier this season, and have released summer signing Nzuzi Toko after cancelling his contract by mutual consent.

Other signings were made yesterday, with Brentford swooping for Everton striker Chris Long on an initial one-month loan deal, Charlton Athletic signed former Middlesbrough loanee and Tottenham Hotspur defender Milos Veljkovic and Ipswich Town have signed Paddy Kenny.

In the two games last night, Leeds United earned their first win in nine by toppling leaders Bournemouth 1-0 while Middlesbrough capitalised and moved into second with a 2-1 win at home to Cardiff City.
