Get the lowdown on all of the team news for the latest round of Championship matches before you put your money on.
Ipswich v Swansea
IPSWICH will be without Damien Delaney through suspension while Connor Wickham (thigh) and Gareth McAuley (Achilles) add to Roy Keane’s injury headaches but Luca Civelli could step in and Martin Fulop could shake an ankle injury. Garry Monk has a very good chance of returning for SWANSEA but Albert Serran is on standby.
Cardiff v Preston
CARDIFF are set to be without ‘keeper Tom Heaton (knee) for at least 4 weeks and will be replaced by David Marshall in nets. Leon Cort is likely to retain his place in defence for PRESTON after his debut last weekend and Barry Nicholson is pushing for a start while loan signing Joshua King should be fit after missing out last week through injury.
Coventry v Middlesbrough
David Bell is pushing for a start for COVENTRY after a return to fitness but Ben Turner, Sammy Clingan (both knee) and Stephen O’Halloran (back) are all sidelined. Gary O’Neil (knee) is just ‘fifty-fifty’ for ‘BORO and Kevin Thomson’s (leg) chances are also bleak while Tony Mowbray has to choose whether to recall Kris Boyd or retain Scott McDonald.
Derby v Norwich
Alberto Bueno and Russell Anderson (both hamstring) will not be fit to turn out for DERBY but Kris Commons is set to step back in and The Rams are boosted by the imminent return of Steve Davies though this weekend is too soon. Korey Smith is in contention for NORWICH after a brief cameo last weekend and there are no fresh injury concerns.
Doncaster v Barnsley
Hull v QPR
Leeds v Crystal Palace
LEEDS have extended the loan of George McCartney for another month but terminated Andy Robinson’s contract while Richard Naylor (knee) undergoes surgery. Alex Marrow (ankle) has escaped a lengthy lay-off for PALACE but will certainly not feature this weekend and Owen Garvan is suspended for one more game.
Nott’m Forest v Bristol City
On-loan Aaron Ramsey is short of fitness but will likely make the bench for FOREST while Dele Adebola’s (ankle) absence adds to striker problems in the form of Dexter Blackstock (knee). Christian Ribeiro is good to go for BRISTOL CITY despite fears of a ligament injury but captain Louis Carey (calf) is not fit while Leiwn Nyatanga returns from loan.
Portsmouth v Burnley
Sheff United v Reading
Watford v Leicester
Shaleum Logan has finished his loan but, aside from that, WATFORD have no new absentees. LEICESTER could hand a debut to Chris Kirkland while Miguel Vitor (leg) is yet again a doubt after failing to shake a persistent injury while Roman Bednar is likely to start after impressing on his debut last weekend, alongside Darius Vassell.
Millwall v Scunthorpe
Kevin Lisbie (knee), Chris Hackett (hip) and Danny Schofield (thigh) are all doubts for MILLWALL meaning new signing Josh McQuoid is likely to get some sort of look in. Sam Togwell (knee) and Garry Thompson (groin) are pushing for starting berths for SCUNTHORPE after making the bench last week while David Mirfin (foot) remains out.
