Championship 2015/16 fixtures: Hull City open at Huddersfield Town reviews the Championship 2015/16 fixtures

After the 2015/16 Championship fixtures were announced, Hull City’s first test as a lower league side after two seasons in the Premier League will be at Huddersfield, while Burnley who also dropped down will be welcomed by a raucous Elland Road crowd as they take on Leeds United.

QPR, who also joined them in the second tier travel across London to Charlton Athletic. Of the clubs who were promoted, MK Dons make the trip to Rotherham, Bristol City are also on the road as they meet Sheffield Wednesday, while perhaps the pick of the fixtures is Preston North End at home to Middlesbrough.

Simon Grayson’s side could arguably be the side who are most equipped out of the clubs that were promoted and if they record a win over beaten Championship play-off finalists, Boro, it will send a message to the rest of the league.

Blackburn Rovers host Wolverhampton Wanderers, in what could be an interesting fixture, with both clubs fighting for a top six place last season, while Cardiff City entertaining Fulham also throws up plenty of intrigue.

However, it is Derby who are the bookmaker’s favourites to win the league next term, and have 9/1 odds with William Hill, though start their campaign at Bolton.

Brentford, who were knocked out in the semi-finals of the Championship play-offs to Boro are 14/1 fourth favourite’s with Bet365 to win and 5/1 with PaddyPower to be promoted. In the same market, the Teesside team are 7/2 with Coral.
