In the last round of game between International breaks, starting on 10th September at Derby County, we had 7 games to play in 21 days including one EFL Cup tie.
We won four games of the six in the league and drew one for 13 points and we beat Wolves at home in the 3rd round of the EFL Cup.

Things get a little easier when we start up again next Saturday – 15th October – with a home game against Brentford and we have (only) 6 games to play in 21 days.
This is our upcoming schedule before the next International break.
October Sat 15 15:00 H Brentford Tue 18 19:45 A Barnsley Sat 22 15:00 H Ipswich Town Sat 29 15:00 A Preston November Tue 01 19:45 H Preston - EFL Cup 4th round Sat 05 15:00 H Cardiff City
The best outcome of course is for us to get five wins in the league and somehow get through to the 5th round of the EFL Cup.
Let us know how you think we will do in the five upcoming league games.
Here’s how we are positioned in the Championship at the moment.
