All matches 3pm unless stated.
Charlton Athletic v Millwall (12:45)
French striker Yann Kermorgant could return for Charlton after missing the midweek defeat at Huddersfield due to an ankle injury. Chris Solly remains a doubt after missing the last four games with a knee injury and fellow defender Leon Cort is also carrying a knock. Cameron Stewart is pushing to make his full debut after the on-loan Hull winger scored the Addicks' goal on Tuesday night on his first appearance as a substitute.
Millwall boss Steve Lomas must decide whether to hand a start to striker Steve Morison who returned from hernia surgery to score as a substitute in the win over Blackpool on Tuesday. Shane Lowry is still suspended so Scott Malone continues at left-back, while striker Jermaine Easter is a doubt with a hamstring problem.
Barnsley v Watford
Barnsley midfielders Stephen Dawson, Jim O'Brien and Tomasz Cywka face late fitness tests. Skipper Dawson was elbowed in the eye during the midweek defeat at Bournemouth, O'Brien is hoping to overcome a knee injury and Cywka is nursing a calf strain. Striker Marcus Pedersen (cut foot) remains sidelined. Defender Peter Ramage, on loan from Crystal Palace, is expected to make his first home appearance, while Reuben Noble-Lazarus, Dale Jennings and Jason Scotland are pushing for recalls.
Influential Watford midfielder Almen Abdi is struggling, having missed the Hornets' last two matches with a foot injury. Brazilian Iriney is fit after a leg injury and could have a part to play, but Nyron Nosworthy (Achilles) and Tommie Hoban (ankle) remain sidelined.
Birmingham's new loan signing Jesse Lingard is in line to make his debut, after the midfielder joined from Manchester United. Captain Paul Robinson returns after missing Tuesday's 3-0 defeat at Burnley through suspension, while long-term absentee David Murphy and Akwasi Asante are also back in the fold. Striker Lee Novak (knee) is a doubt and fellow frontman Nikola Zigic (back) is ruled out.
Centre-back Roger Johnson hopes to overcome an arm injury in time to make his debut for Sheffield Wednesday against his former club. Johnson, who joined from Wolves on a three-month loan deal last week, fell awkwardly in training on Thursday and will be assessed. Captain Anthony Gardner remains sidelined with a long-term Achilles injury, but fellow defender Lewis Buxton could return to the starting line-up after a hamstring problem.
Blackburn v Huddersfield Town
Striker Leon Best returns to the Blackburn squad after a month out, having been subject to internal disciplinary action for questioning manager Gary Bowyer's selection policy. Midfielder Lee Williamson has served a one-game ban and is also available, but Adam Henley (concussion) is very doubtful and David Dunn (knee), DJ Campbell (ankle), Paul Robinson (back), Dickson Etuhu (knee) and Ruben Rochina (shoulder) all still out.
Huddersfield could be without winger Danny Ward after he twisted an ankle in training, but loan signing Jazz Richards is hoping to make his first start signing joining from Swansea. Striker Jon Stead is hoping to retain his place up front alongside nine-goal James Vaughan after making his first start of the season on Tuesday night against Charlton. Midfielders Keith Southern (calf) and Anton Robinson (knee) remain sidelined.
Jack Robinson is available after suspension and the on-loan Liverpool full-back should return after Paul Ince's side crashed to their first league defeat of the season at struggling Millwall in midweek. Ince will again run the rule over defender Craig Cathcart (knee) and striker Steven Davies (abdominal injury).
Poland international Marcin Wasilewski is likely to have to wait for his Leicester debut after signing on Wednesday, with international clearance still to be received. Leicester have no new injury problems. Republic of Ireland international centre-half Sean St Ledger will still be absent as he continues to recover from a knee injury.
Brighton and Hove Albion v Bolton Wanderers
Brighton will check on the fitness of midfielder Liam Bridcutt as he edges closer to fitness following a hernia problem. His return would be timely as fellow midfielder Keith Andrews cannot play against his parent club. Top scorer Leonardo Ulloa is suspended so Ashley Barnes starts in attack again. Strikers Craig Mackail-Smith (Achilles) and Will Hoskins (knee) remain on the sidelines along with midfielder Andrea Orlandi (knee).
Striker Craig Davies could bolster Bolton manager Dougie Freedman's attacking options as he recovers from a toe injury. Freedman left centre-back Zat Knight on the bench in the 2-2 draw with Derby on Tuesday and it remains to be seen whether his captain will earn a recall. Bolton continue to be without long-term knee injury victims Joe Riley, Mark Davies and Stuart Holden, while midfielder Andre Moritz (groin) could miss up to six weeks.
Will Hughes is an injury concern for Derby after being substituted in the second half of the 2-2 draw at Bolton on Tuesday night due to a groin and pelvis problem. Midfielders Jeff Hendrick (ankle) and James Bailey (knee) and centre-halves Shaun Barker and Mark O'Brien (both knee) remain out.
Reading will be without midfielder Jem Karacan who suffered a knee injury during the 1-0 win over Leeds on Wednesday. Hope Akpan came on for Karacan and could start his first Championship match of the season. Striker Pavel Pogrebnyak returns to the squad after suspension but fellow frontman Jason Roberts (hip) and midfielder Mikele Leigertwood (ankle) are out.
Doncaster Rovers v Nottingham Forest
Doncaster will check on on-loan defender Reece Wabara and midfielder Richie Wellens, who both suffered knocks in the midweek loss at Watford. Fellow midfielder Marc De Val Fernandez is running again following his torn medial ligament but it could be three weeks before the former Real Madrid trainee resumes full training. Centre-half Jamie McCombe is making good progress in his recovery from a back fracture.
Kelvin Wilson is an injury concern for Nottingham Forest after the defender was forced off after only 10 minutes of Tuesday night's 2-2 home draw against Middlesbrough. Should Wilson not recover in time then Greg Halford may replace him, as he did on Tuesday. Matt Derbyshire and Darius Henderson both came off the bench to score in midweek and will hope to be involved from the start.
Leeds will be without suspended left-back Stephen Warnock after his sending-off at Reading on Wednesday. Right-back Lee Peltier is also struggling to overcome a groin problem. Teenage defender Sam Byram could be included in the squad for the first time this season following a hip injury. Another defender, Aidy White, was recalled to the substitutes' bench at Reading and may have a role to play, with Leeds having no further major selection issues.
Burnley expect to have Ben Mee available after the defender recovered from a bout of illness. Providing Mee declares his fitness, Dyche may opt for the same XI for the third time in eight days with Ross Wallace (knee) the only absentee. Daniel Lafferty filled in for Mee in the second half against Birmingham in midweek but may be back on the bench.
Middlesborough v AFC Bournemouth
Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray will be without striker Emmanuel Ledesma, who was sent off during Tuesday night's 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest and starts a three-match ban. Defender Stuart Parnaby missed the trip to the City Ground with an ankle problem and will be assessed. Hungary midfielder Jozsef Varga was also absent at Forest after damaging a hip on international duty, and Mowbray will make a late decision on him too.
Bournemouth will assess Charlie Daniels and Shaun MacDonald who suffered minor injuries in Tuesday's 1-0 win over Barnsley. Manager Eddie Howe has confirmed the game will come too soon for Harry Arter and Mohamed Coulibaly. Andrew Surman will also miss out with a sprained ligament in his left ankle. Record signing Tokelo Rantie is pushing for a start in attack after an eye-catching substitute display in midweek.
Yeovil Town v QPR
Yeovil remain without three key figures as they seek their first win since the opening weekend, with defender Byron Webster suspended, goalkeeper Marek Stech out with a hand injury and striker Paddy Madden sidelined by a knee problem. Midfielder Joel Grant will hope to retain his place after scoring his first goal for the club in the defeat at Ipswich on Tuesday while striker Sam Hoskins is pushing for a start.
QPR's injury list is mounting. Defender Nedum Onuoha will miss out after pulling his hamstring during Wednesday's 0-0 draw against Brighton so Benoit Assou-Ekotto will make his full debut at left-back with skipper Clint Hill moving to centre-half. Strikers Andy Johnson and Bobby Zamora are sidelined by knee injuries. Winger Junior Hoilett (hamstring) looks set to miss out again, but deadline-day signing Niko Kranjcar is fit again after a groin injury.
Wigan Athletic v Ipswich Town
Wigan should be boosted by the return of winger Shaun Maloney. The Scotland international was rested for the 0-0 draw with Zulte-Waregem in the Europa League as manager Owen Coyle made seven changes. Ben Watson and Leon Barnett look set to return to the starting line-up while Marc-Antoine Fortune will hope for a recall. Striker Grant Holt is still out with a knee injury and he is joined in the treatment room by Ali Al Habsi (shoulder), Gary Caldwell (hip) and Ivan Ramis (knee).
Ipswich winger Paul Anderson will be assessed, having missed the midweek 2-1 victory over Yeovil with a groin injury. Daryl Murphy was recalled in place of Frank Nouble for the Yeovil game and is expected to keep his place having scored Ipswich's first goal. Tyrone Mings continues his recovery from a knee injury and misses out.
