Bournemouth take on Barnsley in the headline Championship match on Saturday afternoon, but there’s another packed schedule to peel over in England’s second tier.

Of course, most eyes will be on the Vitality as sixth takes on seventh in a massive match in the fight to make the play-offs.

But around the grounds, almost every match will have big ramifications in the fights at both ends of the table.

Here are Planet Sport's selections for another hectic day of action.

Planet Sport Acca

Draw - AFC Bournemouth vs Barnsley: Both Bournemouth and Barnsley come into proceedings in good form, with Barnsley's draw in midweek carrying on an eight-game unbeaten run, although the Tykes had won their previous seven going into it.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, have picked themselves up from a little blip in form to win two and draw one of their previous three games. With the Cherries currently behind the South Yorkshire side in the table, the onus will be on the home team to go for the win. Both sides are tough to break down, however, so it could be honours even in this one.

Queens Park Rangers win - QPR vs Huddersfield Town: QPR are tucked away in mid-table but go into their meeting with Huddersfield off the back of two consecutive wins. The Terriers are fighting for survival but now have a six-point gap below them to the drop zone. QPR should have enough to overcome Saturday's visitors, however.

Reading win - Nottingham Forest vs Reading: Reading have re-ignited their form of late, picking up nine points and not conceding a goal in their last three matches. Chris Hughton always sets his sides up well to defend, but Reading's current form and recent boost from several players returning from injury should realistically see them through.

An accumulator with these three selections pays around 18/1 with Paddy Power.
