Clough: Could see his Derby side go top

Derby, West Ham and Brighton could all find themselves on top of the Championship table on Tuesday evening.

With top two Southampton and Middlesbrough both not in action until Wednesday, that presents the chasing pack with the chance to move above them.

Third place Derby will be top of the pile if they register a win as they host Barnsley at Pride Park.

Should the Rams not win, next in line to take advantage are West Ham United in fourth as they host Ipswich for the first time in nearly a decade at Upton Park.

Brighton are also just two points off top spot, and they play host to their arch rivals Crystal Palace in what promises to be a keenly contested affair at the Amex Stadium.

At the other end of the table, Dean Saunders' Doncaster have the chance to move off the bottom of the table if they can overcome Yorkshire rivals Hull City at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Bristol City and Coventry make up the bottom three and they both have home games as they look to move up the table.

City play host to Reading at Ashton Gate, whilst Blackpool are the visitors to the Ricoh Arena.

Steve McClaren's Nottingham Forest travel to fellow strugglers Burnley looking for successive away wins.

Portsmouth are looking for back-to-back wins as they welcome Peterborough to Fratton Park.

Finally, Millwall make the short trip to Hertfordshire to take on Watford - now managed by one of their former greats Sean Dyche.
