As ever, with some key games to watch out for, we preview the main talking points ahead of this weekend's Championship fixture list. Scroll and click through the pages:
5. Derby can make play-offs, claim Wayne Rooney
The former Manchester United man spoke to the press as his debut edges closer in the New Year. Derby are six points off the play-offs, however Rooney believes his team can secure a spot come May.
6. Preston sweat over EFL refereeing appointment
Alex Neils side could do with a win vs Luton Town but if they are, they will likely have to do it the hard way based on previous matches refereed by Keith Stroud. He has sent off SIX Lilywhites players in just 15 games!
7. Its tight at the top
Expect more movement at the top of the Championship this weekend as just four points separate third to 12th place. Crazy numbers. Does anyone fancy a Barnsley play-off push?
8. Fulham struck by sickness bug
Scott Parker confirmed some of his Fulham players have caught the sickness bug ahead of the Brentford derby. Among those suffering are key players Tom Cairney and Steven Sessegnon. Will they recover in time?
