As we go into the Christmas games let’s have a quick look at the Championship table.

Well, the Millers having won one and (cruelly?) lost one of their last two games are still firmly fixed at the bottom of the league but there is a lot more positivity about the place among the fans and the playing/back room staff which can only be good to see.

Wigan are above the Millers with a late goal from David McGoldrick of Ipswich seeing them get their fifth straight defeat last weekend. Blackburn Rovers also lost three-two at home beaten by an injury time goal by Reading’s George Evans leaving them third from bottom, two points above Wigan.

Just above the dreaded drop line a loss at home to top side Newcastle saw Burton Manager Nigel Clough say he was ‘proud’ of how his team battled. Neil Warnock’s Cardiff are one point above the Brewers after a seven goal thriller saw Barnsley snatch a late winner at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Jumping to the top of the Championship table it doesn’t look like anyone is going to stop Newcastle United going back to the Premier League with them not losing, yet, in December. Brighton are also going well with new Boss Gianfranco Zola seeing his first game in charge ending two-one to Brighton away at Birmingham.

The following pack have three Yorkshire sides in it and is made up of Reading, Huddersfield, Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday who are all just one point apart going into Boxing Day.
