The international break is over, and the Championship is back on tonight, with Derby taking on Hull City at Pride Park.

Leeds looks to break the “curse” of the international break, as the team hasn’t won a match coming out of the break for years. Hopefully a new coach with a new philosophy and a new team will break the “curse”.

Anyway, here are the links.
