The Championship weekend

Last updated : 05 November 2011 By Michael Morris

Following the draw at Leeds and the stunning 3 - 0 win at Derby, Cardiff have jumped back into the top six and have started November, traditionally a bad month, with a bang.

It's 5th v 4th this afternoon with visitors Palace on a run of six consecutive clean sheets. The two games Palace played in the last 7 days both ended 0 - 0. Hopefully City can breach the tight backline of the Palace side.

Elsewhere leaders Southampton are away at Coventry and 2nd place West Ham travel to Hull. A win over Palace will see City upto 3rd putting pressure on Middlesbrough, who kick off at 5.20pm at home to Watford, to try and reclaim third place.

There are nine matches today, three tomorrow before a two week international break.
