Brentford 3-1 Leeds United 17:30

Sunday 5th November
Middlesbrough 1-0 Sunderland 12:15

Sheffield United, fresh from a League One title success last season, remain very much in the promotion picture - a win at Burton on Friday would keep the pressure on Wolves, with the leaders themselves heading to Reading on Saturday.

Hull and Sunderland, two of the sides to drop out of the Premier League last season, are struggling, surprisingly really. City play host to Ipswich whereas the Black Cats welcome Millwall looking to avoid the embarrassment of slipping to the bottom of the Championship.

On Sunday, the only game being played, Garry Monk will return to his former club when he takes Middlesbrough to Elland Road to face Leeds.

What will happen in this one though? Cast your vote so we know if you think it'll be all smiles or disappointment come the full time whistle.
