Cardiff v West Ham preview
Cardiff manager Lennie Lawrence is expected to name an unchanged side for Tuesday's Championship meeting with West Ham at Ninian Park.
Lawrence is still without defender Tony Vidmar, who completes a two-match suspension for his dismissal in the Carling Cup match at Bournemouth last week.
The Bluebirds have drawn their last four games and have suffered only one defeat in their last nine in all competitions.
West Ham should have Sergei Rebrov available again after a knee injury as they look to end their run of five away games without a win.
Rebrov, who missed Saturday's 1-1 draw at Plymouth, is unlikely to force his way into one of the two striking roles at the expense of Marlon Harewood or Bobby Zamora.
He could come back into the starting line-up on the right side of midfield, however, with either Steve Lomas or Carl Fletcher stepping down.
The Hammers still have a number of injury problems, with Teddy Sheringham, Malky Mackay, Christian Dailly and Andy Melville all still out.
Sunderland v Wolves preview
Sunderland are up to fifth place in the Championship after a run of only one defeat in their last 10 games and they are protecting an unbeaten home record when they take on managerless Wolves.
Liam Lawrence should keep his place in Mick McCarthy's starting line-up after replacing Dean Whitehead for Saturday's 2-0 win over Brighton, in which he scored one goal and made the other.
Carl Robinson will play on with a broken nose, having decided to delay an operation to reset it until the end of the season, while McCarthy has confirmed that Jeff Whitley will start despite being substituted at the weekend.
Whitley had already been shown the yellow card against Brighton so McCarthy opted to substitute him to save him from a potential dismissal.
The 1-0 defeat to 10-man Gillingham at the weekend proved to be the final straw for the Wolves board, who sacked manager Dave Jones on Monday morning.
Caretaker boss Stuart Gray is able to recall top scorer Kenny Miller alongside former Newcastle striker Carl Cort, after the Scotland international missed the trip to Kent through suspension.
With Mark Clyde still struggling with an ankle injury, youngster Kenny Lowe should keep his place at right back with Mark Kennedy continuing to fill in on the left side of defence.
Former Sunderland defender Jody Craddock replaced Mikkel Bischoff after an hour at Gillingham and is back in contention for a starting role.
Crewe v Leicester preview
Crewe will welcome back top scorer Dean Ashton to face Leicester after he missed Friday's 3-2 home defeat to Sheffield United with a hamstring strain.
Ashton, who has scored nine goals this season, will partner Steve Jones in attack for Dario Gradi's side, with Andy White dropping down to the bench.
The Railwaymen have the worst defensive record in The Championship, but Gradi has given his backing to young keeper Ben Williams, who has conceded 41 goals already this season.
With centre back Adie Moses injured, Gradi believes he has the best defensive quartet available to him already in the starting line-up, so he will resist making any changes.
Craig Levein will take charge of Leicester for the first time, looking to make an immediate impact and bring them their first victory in seven games.
The Foxes have drawn their last five Championship matches and Levein, who watched from the stands at Ninian Park on Saturday, admits they were lucky to get a goalless draw against Cardiff.
Levein says he wants to bring down the average age of his team and that could be good news for the likes of Joey Gudjonsson, Richard Stearman and Trevor Benjamin, who were all involved at the weekend.
With Martin Keown still sidelined by injury another veteran, Matt Elliott, will continue to partner Matt Heath in defence.
Gillingham v Watford preview
Gillingham will be without 10 first team players when they take on Watford at the Priestfield Stadium, with defender Ian Cox the latest player to be ruled out.
Cox was sent off for a professional foul in the 1-0 win over Wolves on Saturday and will serve a one-match suspension.
Player-manager Andy Hessenthaler was especially pleased with Saturday's performance, which ended a seven-match losing run, as he was without Darren Byfield, Alan Pouton, Iwan Roberts, Patrick Agyemang, Nicky Southall, John Hills, Paul Smith, John Robinson and Barry Ashby.
They will all miss out again and with Cox also in the stands, Nyron Nosworthy is expected to play in the centre of defence with Leon Johnson coming into the starting line-up.
Watford have suffered a blow with the news that key midfielder Brynjar Gunnarsson is likely to miss the trip to Kent.
Gunnarsson suffered a recurrence of his recent groin injury during Saturday's 2-1 victory over his former club Nottingham Forest at the City Ground. Dominic Blizzard is set to replace him.
Ray Lewington's side are unbeaten in five matches and their weekend victory was their fourth Championship away-day success.
Ipswich v Sheff Utd preview
Ipswich stretched their unbeaten run to eight Championship games with their 3-0 win over Preston on Saturday, which keeps them in touch with leaders Wigan.
Joe Royle's side also remain unbeaten at Portman Road, with six wins from their eight games, and they are averaging more than two goals a game at home.
Saturday's success did come at a price, however, with Fabian Wilnis and Tommy Miller both picking up injuries.
Wilnis has a hamstring injury which will definitely keep him out of the meeting with The Blades, while Miller requires a fitness test on a bruised calf. Matt Richards will come in for Wilnis with Dean Bowditch standing by to replace Miller.
Sheffield United are unbeaten in seven league games since their 4-0 defeat at Wigan and Friday's 3-2 win at Crewe was their second consecutive away success.
Manager Neil Warnock is set to be without midfielder Michael Tonge once again through injury, so Andy Gray is expected to continue in a midfield role with Danny Cadamarteri partnering Paul Shaw in attack.
Plymouth v Reading preview
Plymouth manager Bobby Williamson is expected to stick with the players who started Saturday's 1-1 Championship draw against West Ham at Home Park.
Club captain Paul Wotton scored Argyle's equaliser against The Hammers after stepping off the bench, but is unlikely to come into the starting line-up.
Williamson is still without injured defender Hasney Aljofree and striker Marino Keith, while Tony Capaldi is not quite ready for action after recovering from a broken leg.
Reading were beaten for the first time in eight league matches when they went down to a 3-2 defeat against Coventry at Highfield Road.
Manager Steve Coppell has confirmed that midfielder Andy Hughes will not travel to Devon to face Argyle because of a hamstring injury, with his place in the squad going to Bas Savage.
Coppell is already without strikers Nicky Forster and Shaun Goater, while defender Adie Williams is poised to join Coventry.
QPR v Millwall preview
QPR are bidding for a sixth consecutive home Championship win when they take on London rivals Millwall at Loftus Road.
Ian Holloway's side recovered from successive away defeats at Preston and Wolves to beat Burnley 3-0 in West London at the weekend.
Marcus Bignot's fifth yellow card of the season means he will serve a one-match suspension, but that will not come into effect until Saturday and he will be available to face The Lions.
Midfielder Martin Rowlands will miss the game though, after suffering a foot injury five minutes before the interval against Burnley.
Marcus Bean is his most likely replacement, although Holloway has the option of recalling either Kevin McLeod or Tony Thorpe up front with Kevin Gallen dropping into midfield.
Millwall will be without striker Neil Harris for around three weeks after suffering a calf injury during the first half of Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Stoke.
Kevin Muscat could return after missing the trip to the Potteries with an ankle injury, but Paul Ifill and Peter Sweeney are not yet ready to come back.
The Lions travel across London having lost each of their last three away matches
Stoke v Wigan preview
Chris Greenacre's late goal against Millwall on Saturday ended Stoke's run of seven Championship games without a win and they will look to keep their revival going against leaders Wigan.
The Potters have already beaten Ipswich at The Britannia Stadium, while they have never lost at home to Wigan in nine previous meetings.
With John Halls troubled by a back injury, manager Tony Pulis is likely to stick with the defensive line-up of Wayne Thomas, Michael Duberry, Gerry Taggart and Clint Hill, which kept a clean sheet at the weekend.
Wigan remain unbeaten in their first 16 league games and they were convincing 2-0 winners at Leeds on Sunday.
Championship top scorer Nathan Ellington should be fit to start despite being substituted late on at Elland Road after suffering from cramp.
Manager Paul Jewell should name an unchanged side as he is still without the injured Gary Teale, Emerson Thome, Jason Jarrett and Nicky Eaden.
Jewell's side have won their last five league matches, scoring 14 goals and conceding just three, to open up a six-point lead at the top.(Sky)
