Ones to watch
Kyle McFadzean (Coventry City)
He turned in a brilliant performance against hometown club Sheffield United last time out, solid in organizing the Coventry defence, cleared the danger well and made some terrific blocks late on.
Ivan Sunjic (Birmingham City)
In a dismal effort against Hull, the Croatian was the only Birmingham player to have a decent outing. He kept running, covering and battling for the majority of the match.
