Championship Opta Facts March 12-13
Blackburn Rovers v Leeds United
Blackburn Rovers have won their last five league games against Leeds United, keeping three clean sheets in the process.
In fact, Leeds are winless in seven against Blackburn, losing five and drawing twice.
Blackburn are currently on a run of four league wins in a row at Ewood Park, their best run since February 2010 (also four wins); they last won five in a row in March 2006.

Bolton Wanderers v Preston North End
Bolton have won three and lost none of their last five league meetings with Preston.
Preston have drawn a blank in each of their last four contests with the Trotters. Lee Cartwright was the last Preston player to score against Bolton back in October 1992.
The Trotters are on their longest run without a clean sheet in the league (12 games) since a run of 14 in September 2013.
Preston have failed to score in either of their last two league games and another game without a goal would be their longest scoreless run since a run of four in August 2013.
Since three points for a win was introduced in 1981/82, no side with 26 points from the opening 36 games has ever survived relegation from the second to the third tier of English football.
Cardiff City v Ipswich Town
Cardiff are unbeaten in their last three home games against Ipswich after losing the previous three in a row.
Ipswich have failed to score in just two of their last 14 league matches with Cardiff, including this season's reverse fixture which ended goalless.
Only Hull (1) have lost fewer home games than Cardiff this season (2), though one of those two defeats came last time out against Leeds.
Only Burnley (29) have earned more points away from home in the Championship than Ipswich this season (28).
Despite their excellent away record, the Tractor Boys have won just one of their last six on the road (D2 L3).
Fulham v Bristol City
Fulham's victory in the reverse fixture extended their winning run over the Robins to three matches, although two of those games came in 1997.
Bristol City's last victory away to Fulham at Craven Cottage was back on Boxing Day 1989.
Fulham have kept one clean sheet in their last 25 games in the Championship, conceding 45 goals in that time.
The Robins have won three of their last four away league games, though lost most recently away at Wolves.
Only Burnley's Andre Gray (29) has been involved in more goals in the Championship than Ross McCormack (25 - 18 goals, 7 assists).
Huddersfield Town v Burnley

Hull City v MK Dons
Hull have yet to lose against MK Dons, winning two and drawing one.
MK Dons lost the reverse fixture 2-0 at the Stadium MK; the first time they'd failed to score against Hull.
Hull have conceded just four goals in their last 12 league games, keeping eight clean sheets.
The Dons have kept clean sheets in their last two games - they have never kept three in a row in the Championship.
If Hull can keep a clean sheet against MK Dons they will equal a club record of six consecutive home league clean sheets in a row, which they achieved previously in 1912, 1984 and 2010.
Nottingham Forest v Sheffield Wednesday
Nottingham Forest haven't failed to score in three consecutive matches against the Owls since August 1968.

Since a 13 game unbeaten run in the Championship between November 2015 and February 2016, Forest have lost four of their last five games (W1).
Queens Park Rangers v Brentford
QPR are unbeaten in four home league games against rivals Brentford (W2 D2), keeping a clean sheet in three of those contests. However, it's the first meeting at Loftus Road since November 2003.
Brentford have scored just four goals in their last eight games against QPR in league competition and never more than once in this run.
After wins over Birmingham and Derby in their previous two league games at Loftus Road, the Hoops are aiming to win three on the bounce for the first time since December 2014.

Derby have scored exactly three goals in four of their last five meetings with Rotherham.
Only league leaders Burnley (5) are on a longer current winning run than the Millers (3).
The Rams have lost their last two away games in the Championship and defeat at the New York Stadium would signal their longest losing streak since a run of four in December 2012.
A fourth win in a row for Rotherham would be their longest winning run in the second tier since March 1982, when they won nine in a row.
Wolves v Birmingham City
Wolves have lost just one of their last seven league games against Birmingham (W4 D2), having gone nine without a win against them prior to that.
