Championship fixtures 2010-11

17 June 2010 11:02
Brian Laws faces one of his former clubs on the opening day of the season as Burnley begin their bid to regain their Premier League status.

The east Lancashire side start their npower Championship campaign on August 7 with a home match against Nottingham Forest, for whom current Clarets boss Laws played between 1988 and 1994.  

Portsmouth, hoping to come out of administration and avoid any further points deductions from the Football League today, begin with a trip to Coventry.

Bid to bounce back: Brian Laws will spearhead Burnley's promotion charge

The third of the teams relegated from the Premier League last season, Hull, start their campaign with a home match against Swansea.  

Of the newly-promoted teams, Norwich and Leeds will both kick off in front of their own fans - with Watford and Derby respectively providing the opposition on the opening day.  

Millwall, who moved up to the Championship courtesy of a play-off final win over Swindon last month, head west for a match against Bristol City - now managed by Steve Coppell.

On the march: Millwall are back in the Championship this season

Cardiff, who were one win away from the Premier League in May but lost the Championship play-off final to Blackpool, start with a home match against Sheffield United. Dave Jones' men travel to Burnley in their last match on May 8.

Former Sunderland manager Roy Keane is set for a return to the north-east, with his current club Ipswich starting at Middlesbrough.  

Elsewhere on the opening day, Reading are at home to Scunthorpe, Crystal Palace host Leicester, QPR meet Barnsley and Preston take on Doncaster.
