Championship 2020/21: Three games to watch in Matchday 11

Matchday 11 of the Championship will begin with Cardiff City playing hosts to Bristol City on Friday night. Both teams returned to winning ways in midweek and one of them has the chance to enter the international break with another three points.

Three games to watch in Matchday 11:

Sheffield Wednesday vs Millwall – November 7: Wednesday recently ended a four-match losing streak with a slender 1-0 win over Bournemouth. That took their tally to -1 after 10 games and they received a boost shortly after as their 12-point deduction for breaking sustainability and profitability rules was halved. They are still bottom of the standings with five points and the verdict of the appeal should provide a morale boost for the players and manager. Their next game comes against Millwall, who are winless in two league games. The south London outfit are still tough to beat on the road and have picked up 10 points from five outings. They recently drew 0-0 against an in-form Norwich City side at Carrow Road.

Norwich City vs Swansea City – November 7: Matchday 10 was quite a surprise as none of the top six teams were able to pick up wins. Still, second-placed Swansea were able to reduce their deficit to leaders Reading from four points to three as the Royals suffered a disappointing 3-0 loss to Preston North End. Norwich, meanwhile, jumped from fourth to third on goal difference to Bournemouth, who suffered a 1-0 defeat to Wednesday on the road. The Canaries are now scheduled to host the Swans, who are just one point ahead of them. Daniel Farke’s side have recently had the edge over the Swans, having beaten them home and away during the 2018/19 campaign.

Derby County vs Barnsley – November 7: The Rams are experiencing their worst start to a campaign since 2007/08 when they were relegated from the top-flight with a record low of just 11 points. The club appeared to have turned the corner when they beat Norwich City 1-0 in early October, but they have since bagged just three points from five matches. That has dropped them to 23rd on the table with just six points. In comparison, Barnsley are on the up under new boss Valerien Ismael and they are four points better off than Derby after two wins in the past three games. Derby are unbeaten in four meetings against Barnsley with three wins, but they will need to improve their output upfront this weekend. They have the worst scoring tally in the league with just five goals from 10 games.
