Bolton Wanderers v Leeds United

Bottom of the table Bolton Wanderers entertain Leeds United in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday.

Dougie Freedman's side drew their first two games of the campaign but lost the next three, most recently against Blackburn Rovers 4-1 - Alex Baptiste's header was the Trotters' first goal in three matches.

Leeds fell to their first defeat of the season last time out as they were beaten 1-0 by Queens Park Rangers, prior to that defeat they had won two and drew the other two of their five league fixtures.

Bournemouth v Blackpool

Two nominees for August's Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award go head-to-head as Paul Ince's Blackpool travel to Eddie Howe's Bournemouth.

The Tangerines are top of the league after four wins and a draw from their first five matches and that form was enough for Ince to win the first Manager of the Month award of the season.

Bournemouth have taken nine points from their five games with victories over Charlton Athletic, Wigan Athletic and, most recently, Doncaster Rovers, but boss Howe will be wary after his side conceded 11 goals in the two matches that they have lost.

Burnley v Blackburn Rovers

This weekend's Sky Bet Championship action starts at 12:15pm on Saturday with an East Lancashire derby between Burnley and Blackburn Rovers.

Both of last season's meetings ended in 1-1 draws with Sam Vokes hitting an 89th-minute leveller at Turf Moor back in December before David Dunn struck in the final minutes of the reverse fixture four months later.

The fifth-place Clarets got the better of Derby County at Pride Park in their most recent outing, winning 3-0, while Rovers also won by a three-goal margin, beating Bolton Wanderers 4-1 at home.

Huddersfield Town v Doncaster Rovers

There's a meeting between two Yorkshire rivals at the John Smith's Stadium as Huddersfield Town face Doncaster Rovers.

Both sides saw three-game unbeaten runs come to an end in their last outing as the Terriers lost 2-1 to Barnsley, while Doncaster were beaten 1-0 by fellow Championship new boys Bournemouth.

The two clubs have not met since 2008 but Rovers are riding a six-game unbeaten stretch against Huddersfield, winning three and drawing three.

Ipswich Town v Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough are entertained by Ipswich Town at Portman Road this weekend as both clubs go in search of only their second win of the term.

The Tractor Boys took the lead against Birmingham City in their last match through a Christophe Berra strike but Mick McCarthy's side were not able to hold on for the three points, eventually drawing 1-1, which gave them their first point in three games.

Middlesbrough also registered a 1-1 scoreline. Tony Mowbray's men went behind in the first half against Sheffield Wednesday but Mustapha Carayol scored shortly after the break for their third consecutive draw.

Leicester City v Wigan Athletic

After losing for the first time this season in their most recent match, Leicester City host Wigan Athletic.

The Foxes fell 2-1 against Charlton Athletic before the international break to end their four-game unbeaten start which included three wins and a draw.

Owen Coyle's side registered their second win of the campaign, and their first since the opening day, in their last outing by beating Nottingham Forest 2-1.

Millwall v Derby County

Millwall will continue their search for a first league win when Derby County make the trip to The Den.

The Lions lost their first three league games without scoring a goal but have since drawn 2-2 with Sheffield Wednesday and, most recently, 1-1 against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Nigel Clough's men have had an inconsistent start with two wins, a draw and two losses, including a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Burnley last time out.

Historically, the home team has held the advantage when the two teams have met; neither side has lost in front of their own fans in the last 10 encounters.

Nottingham Forest v Barnsley

A team who suffered their first loss of the campaign before the international break host a club that registered their first win on the same day, as Nottingham Forest welcome Barnsley.

Forest opened the term with three wins, before sharing the points with Watford but, most recently, lost 2-1 at Wigan despite taking an eighth-minute lead through Andy Reid.

In contrast to Forest, the Tykes lost three and drew one before goals from Chris O'Grady and Marcus Pederson lifted David Flitcroft's side to a 2-1 win over Huddersfield Town.

Queens Park Rangers v Birmingham City

Queens Park Rangers have dropped just two points this season and they host Birmingham City on Saturday.

Rangers have won their last three games 1-0 against Ipswich Town, Bolton Wanderers and Leeds United to sit second in the table. Birmingham have lost three of their five league matches but registered a draw in their most recent game - 1-1 against Ipswich.

Historically, Birmingham City hold the upper hand, winning 21 times compared to QPR's 15. The Blues have lost just one meeting since 1985, although that was in their most recent encounter back in October 2008.

Reading v Brighton and Hove Albion

Two of this season's predicted promotion contenders do battle at the Madejski Stadium on Sunday as Reading entertain Brighton and Hove Albion in a 1:15pm start.

Adam Le Fondre struck a 77th-mintue penalty in Reading's most recent game, helping the Royals to a 1-0 win at Yeovil Town and their first three-point haul since the opening day of the campaign.

After consecutive 2-1 losses in the first two games of the new season, Brighton have managed to turn their form around, registering wins over Birmingham City and Burnley before drawing 1-1 win Millwall last time out.

Sheffield Wednesday v Yeovil Town

Yeovil Town will be in search of their first ever win over Sheffield Wednesday when they clash at Hillsborough.

The Glovers have been defeated on four occasions against Wednesday and have drawn the other two. Recent form suggests they may struggle this time around, with Gary Johnson's side currently riding a four-game losing streak in which they have failed to find a goal.

Dave Jones' men are level with Yeovil on three points but are yet to register a league win. They opened the campaign with successive 2-1 losses against QPR and Burnley before sharing the points with Leeds, Millwall and Middlesbrough.

Watford v Charlton Athletic

There's another clash of sides that recorded firsts last time out as Charlton Athletic travel to Watford.

The Addicks overcame Leicester 2-1 in their most recent match for their opening win of the campaign, while Watford were beaten 1-0 by Blackpool for their first defeat.

Meetings between the two teams have been close with 22 encounters finishing level, while Charlton have won 21 compared to the Hornets' 19 victories. No more than one goal has separated the sides since 1995.
