Championship predictions: Derby to beat Leeds, Wednesday with narrow win

Derby County Away Flag

Derby to extend their lead by beating Leeds, Nottingham Forest to win away and Middlesbrough to keep the pressure on among other potential results.

There are plenty of important points to be had in the Championship this weekend as Derby look to condemn Leeds United to another defeat and stretch their lead at the top of the table.

There are also just three points separating third and seventh place in the division which means there’s an opportunity for any side to stamp their authority and break into that important top six heading into a busy Christmas and New Year period.

There are also just three points separating Leeds and Wigan in the bottom three, which shows how important the next round of fixtures is for the sides who could get involved in the scrap at the wrong end of the table.
