Sky Bet Championship Schedule & Fixtures 2013-14

Burnley FC are the surprise new leaders of the Championship and aim to secure that position going into the international break by winning at home to Reading.

Sean Dyche’s side were considered more probable relegation candidates than promotion challengers by some pundits at the start of the season, but have confounded those predictions with only one defeat in their opening 10 games.

A 2-0 win away to Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday knocked QPR off the summit on goal difference, although Harry Redknapp’s side have a game in hand as they were due to play Wigan Athletic who instead were involved in Europa League action.

The Clarets’ ascent is all the more remarkable as they sold their top goalscorer Charlie Austin to QPR on the eve of the campaign, but Danny Ings and Sam Vokes have done superbly in filling the breach.

QPR remain favourites to be promoted straight back to the Premier League as champions at a best price of 5/4 for the title with bookmaker Boylesports.

They will be confident of maintaining their unbeaten league record for the season when they host struggling Barnsley, who have sunk to the bottom of the table.

Also on the table-topping total of 23 points are Leicester City, who have been beaten only once this term in the Championship or Capital One Cup and now bid to emulate Burnley’s midweek victory at Doncaster.

Among the other Saturday highlights is an all-top 10 battle which pits Huddersfield Town at home to Watford, while Nottingham Forest travel to Brighton for a teatime kick-off.

Due to their Europa League game, Wigan play on Sunday and host Lancashire rivals Blackburn Rovers, while Bolton Wanderers travel to Birmingham City for the Saturday lunchtime televised fixture.
