    Team news on its way from across the Championship.

  2. MK Dons take the lead

    About 25 minutes left in that one.

  3. Toon and Blues looking to bounce back

    Newcastle United v Birmingham City (15:00 GMT)

    Newcastle celebrate

    Second meets fifth at St James Park as Newcastle seek a first win in four matches and a return to the Championship summit.

    Back-to-back league defeats and an EFL Cup exit on penalties against Hull have seen Rafael Benitez's side overtaken by Brighton.

    Gary Rowett brings his Birmingham side to the north east for the first of two meetings in a month between the two clubs.

    Blues will know they need a strong response after losing 3-0 at home to Barnsley last weekend.

    League Two preview

    Doncaster celebrate goal

    Plymouth appeared to be walking away with the League Two title a few weeks ago - but three defeats on the bounce have seen them slip to third.

    Today, Derek Adams' side host new leaders Doncaster who are in fine form having won four in a row.

    Second-placed Carlisle have still only lost one league game all season - the Cumbrians visit play-off chasing Luton.

    Bottom side Newport play Morecambe at home and it's a battle at the wrong end of the table as Cheltenham host Exeter.

  8. Can the Shakers finally win?

    League One preview

    Bury who were third in October, could slip into the relegation zone if they suffer an 11th-straight league defeat - the Shakers travel to out-of-form Bristol Rovers.

    Bury striker Hope Hallam

    Leaders Scunthorpe have no such worries - they've only lost twice all season, but face a tricky trip to fifth-placed Rochdale.

    Second-placed Bolton do not play until Monday against Gillingham, so Sheffield United will move into the automatic promotion places if they beat Swindon at home.

    Coventry are looking to avoid a fifth defeat in a row at in-form Southend, while Northampton, who have also lost four successive league matches, visit Port Vale.

  9. Elsewhere in the Championship

    We've mentioned our three key games in the Championship this afternoon, but elsewhere....

    Barnsley are looking for a first home win since 27 August as they take on a Norwich side who halted a five-match losing streak last weekend with a 5-0 thumping of Brentford.

    The free-falling Bees, who have lost four in a row, will be looking to turn around their fortunes against Burton at Griffin Park.

    QPR boss Ian Holloway

    Rock-bottom Rotherham host Ian Holloway's QPR who have lost their last two games, while Wolves face Fulham at Molineux, off the back of four straight home defeats. 

    Just down the road, Aston Villa are seeking to continue the revival under Steve Bruce with the visit of lowly Wigan and it's a real six-pointer at Portman Road as Ipswich play Cardiff.

  10. Seagulls soar to highest perch

    Brighton 2-0 Leeds

    Brighton celebrate a win against Leeds

    The weekend's EFL action kicked-off on Friday with Brighton taking over top spot from Newcastle in a 2-0 win against Leeds.

    The Seagulls got the better of their visitors courtesy of two penalties - one in either half.

    Glenn Murray put Chris Hughton's men ahead after Kalvin Phillips was sent off for handling on the line midway through the first half.

    Despite dominating, the hosts only sealed victory with Tomer Hemed's late penalty after Lewis Dunk was fouled.

    Santa Fan at the Amex Stadium

    Just over a couple of weeks are left until Father Christmas delivers gifts to young and old up and down the country.

    But what gift should Santa bring your club this festive season to help bring more tidings of comfort and joy into the new year?

    Is it the funds to help capture a new striker in the transfer window or perhaps more controversially, a new man in charge?

    Send us your suggestions via #bbcefl and don't forget to mention which team you support.

  12. On the agenda

    Ten fixtures in all this afternoon in the Championship after last night's encounter between Brighton and Leeds. 

    We'll be keeping our eyes predominantly on three games in the 15:00 GMT kick-offs.

    • Huddersfield Town v Bristol City
    • Newcastle United v Birmingham City
    • Reading v Sheffield Wednesday

    We'll also let you know of any unusual or obscure events in the afternoon's other fixtures, but Birmingham boss Gary Rowett will hope the smile is still on his face come just after 17:00 GMT.
