What will happen in this one though? Cast your vote so we know if you think it'll be all smiles or disappointment come the full time whistle.

Burton are the only side who are yet to collect a point so far, something the Brewers will bid to change when Birmingham visit the Pirelli Stadium to start the Championship action on Friday evening.

Meanwhile, a Yorkshire derby at Bramall Lane on Saturday lunchtime will get Saturday's action underway - Sheffield United bid to end a run of defeats against a Barnsley side that collected a first win in midweek.

Aston Villa, Bolton and Millwall will each look to record first victories when taking on Norwich, Derby and Millwall respectively. They might be unbeaten but Fulham are another side, along with visiting Sheffield Wednesday, still to obtain a three point return.

Ipswich's 100% record will be challenged again when Brentford, collecting a solitary point so far, head to Portman Road.

A certainty by close of play Saturday will be the fact one of Wolves and Cardiff WILL lose their perfect records as the two sides, who have won the opening three Championship fixtures, meet at Molineux.

It's great to see a club like Burton in the Championship,a league mostly dominated with former Premiership Clubs.Burton now have gotten off to a bad start,they will be looking to continue where they left off last season,their next fixture against Birmingham who they beat in both fixtures last season.If they don't get something from the game hairs will be raised with their fans with worry,once at the bottom of the league it can get very hard to climb it.
