Swansea City aren’t in action today as Watford’s undersoil heating failed, so we’ll round-up today’s most important fixtures and see how this could affect our table position come 5pm.

Derby County have ended Nottingham Forest’s long, impressive away unbeaten run as they won 1-0. Forest will stay 2nd today as they have a 5-point gap from 3rd, but West Brom have 2 games in hand.

Swansea City are currently in 5th, but 6 teams in the top 8 have games in hand over us.

West Brom face Sheffield United today in an important match at the Hawthorns between two sides who occupy play-off places. A win for the Blades would see us drop to 6th, and Blackpool will also be looking to get back up into the top 6 as they travel to Coventry City.

Leicester, who have two games in hand over us, face a tough game at home to League leaders Newcastle United.

Rivals Cardiff City host Doncaster Rovers.

Come back for further updates to this article throughout the afternoon.
