Both Brighton and Reading won their home games 3-1 last night – with Brighton beating Birmingham and Reading beating Blackburn Rovers.
Brighton have now gone 2 points ahead of Newcastle with 83 points from their 40 games played, with Newcastle playing tonight at home to Burton Albion.
Huddersfield play Norwich at home in the only two Championship games to be played in this round of games.
Reading are now in 3rd place on 73 points after 40 games played – 2 points ahead of the Terriers who have two games in hand.
These are the vital games of the season, so we hope that Newcastle can again deliver the goods tonight, but we will need another win against the Brewers to keep ahead of the Seagulls.
Here’s the current state of the top six in the Championship.
