As ever, with some key games to watch out for, we preview the main talking points ahead of this weekend's Championship games. Scroll and click through the pages:

The Tykes were met by the devastating news that lifelong fan Jeffrey Wroe passed away at the 2-2 draw with Derby on Wednesday following a cardiac arrest. Conor Chaplin says he and teammates want a win to honour his memory.
Fulham and Charlton meet in West London - two sides who have made impressive starts to the season. In fact, Scott Parker’s men have caught the eye so much that they have been compared to Manchester City (as per Sky Sports).

Lamouchi’s men are the Championship’s in-form side - briefly going top after last Friday’s win at Stoke. The Forest manager is faced with a selection headache, but Joao Carvalho is expected to get the nod in the no. 10 position.
Danny and Nicky Cowley guided Huddersfield to their first win of the term at Stoke on Tuesday - and reports suggest they’re also planning further afield. The Terriers reportedly want to sign Adanaspor forward Emeka Eze in January.
Phillip Cocu’s decision to recall Tom Lawrence to the starting 11 and Mason Bennett to the bench was heavily criticised by some Derby supporters and afar. With both players booed at Barnsley, will he stick with them against Luton?
Defeat at Swansea and it is surely curtains for Nathan Jones. Bookmakers have been taking bets on his successor for weeks in anticipation of the inevitable - and Stoke favourite Matthew Etherington has tipped Tony Pulis to return.
Just over 48 hours before kick-off, Millwall announced Neil Harris had stood down after four years as manager. James Barratt will take caretaker charge with Chris Hughton, Gary Rowett and Roy Keane the early names linked.
Liam Cooper and Pablo Hernandez are among FOUR Leeds first-teamers ruled out of the Millwall clash. Bielsa surprisingly named youngsters Pascal Struijk and Olly Casy as potential options in his post-match presser. Is that a hint?
It might be early days - but Neil Warnock is already writing his Cardiff side off from lifting the Championship title. The 70-year-old believes either Saturday’s opponents West Brom, Leeds or Fulham will be champions come May.
After tasting his first league defeat in charge of Sheffield Wednesday at Hull in midweek, Monk expects his players to have “fire in their bellies”. If his wish comes true, Wigan could be in for a tough afternoon.
