New to PNE vital for the New Year! We now will review the Championship`s main action for each club.

Monday saw the opening fixtures for 2007. Birmingham remained top despite losing. Derby beat Preston to climb above them into 2nd place, meaning the top two Championship sides from 2006 both lost on the opening day of 2007. The results are as follows:
C Palace 3-1 Norwich
Ipswich 1-0 Birmingham
Leeds 2-1 Coventry
Leicester 0-2 Sunderland
Luton 0-0 Cardiff
Plymouth 1-1 Southampton
Preston 1-2 Derby
QPR 1-0 Colchester
Sheff Wed 1-2 Hull City
Southend 3-1 West Brom
Wolves 2-0 Barnsley

The game at Burnley was postponed due to the bad conditions at Turf moor. The results meant the table looked like this:
1 Birmingham City 53
2 Derby County 50
3 Preston North End 47
4 Southampton 45
5 West Bromwich Albion 43
6 Colchester United 43
7 Stoke City 43

20 Queens Park Rangers 30

24 Southend United 21

New Years day also saw the pening of the transfermarket and up to Saturday only 6 teams hadnt participated in any transfers. Sunderland have been the busy club in the market and they have seen many loan signings return to the stadium of Light as well.

Saturday saw the FA cup third round and the Championship’s teams results were:

Therfore only 7 Championship teams are guaranteed to be in the fourth round but the final figure could be 19 depending on the results of the replays and the postponed matches.
