As the EFL Championship season enters its final stretch, the Yorkshire clubs are fighting at the top and bottom ends of the table.
This week we discuss the weekend’s fixtures involving promotion-chasing Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday, Huddersfield and Barnsley as well as Rotherham United who are fighting for survival in England’s second tier.
Leeds United face Birmingham City in the first fixture of the weekend and Garry Monk’s Whites are looking to continue their good form coming off the back of a 1-0 home victory against Sheffield Wednesday.
Carlos Carvahal’s side play host to Norwich City and fans of Sheffield Wednesday will be keen to see their side bounce back following defeat and strengthen their spot in the final play-off place.
Huddersfield welcome table-topping Newcastle to the John Smith’s Stadium with the aim of collecting three points, which will keep the Terriers in contention for automatic promotion.
Barnsley travel to Derbyshire to take on Steve McClaren’s Derby County at Pride Park. Paul Heckingbottom’s men will work hard to close the gap between themselves in 10th place and Sheffield Wednesday, who are in sixth.
The Championship’s basement club Rotherham play against Aston Villa with the Millers currently 16 points from safety. A win against Villa may prove pivotal in Rotherham’s fight for survival.
