Championship weekend preview: Bristol City boss Lee Johnson eyes Wolves scalp

Bild Bristol City boss Lee Johnson believes it is important for the Sky Bet Championship that his side beat leaders Wolves on Saturday.

The Boxing Day fixtures left Nuno Espirito Santo's table-toppers, who have won eight of their last 10 matches, eight points clear of the Robins.

Johnson said: "It'll be a tough game but we'll do everything we can to get a result for the City faithful.

"They've spent a lot of money on their squad but it's alright spending money - you still have to get the right players in and they've built a fantastic squad. I think from the league's point of view, it's important we win the game to bring Wolves back into us and the rest."

Saturday also sees fourth-spotted Derby play at Ipswich, Leeds, who are fifth, go to basement boys Birmingham, and sixth-placed Sheffield United host second-bottom Bolton.

Two clubs just outside the play-off places, Middlesbrough and Aston Villa, meet at the Riverside Stadium in what will be the home side's first match with Tony Pulis in charge.

Sheffield Wednesday - who remain managerless after Carlos Carvalhal's departure on Christmas Eve, with Lee Bullen still in caretaker charge - travel to Brentford.

Chris Coleman's Sunderland, currently lying 22nd, are at Nottingham Forest, while the side a place and a point better off than the Black Cats, Burton, are at home against Norwich.

Elsewhere, Hull take on Fulham at the KCOM Stadium and Barnsley face Reading at Oakwell.
