All the Championship derby fixture dates for the 2015/2016 season

fulhamcharlton.jpg

It's the day that football fans everywhere have been counting down to: the unveiling of the fixture list for the coming season.

Yes, the games aren't even starting for another seven weeks, but we can all start getting excited about the action returning after a long, hard summer without a major football tournament.

And, of course, the matches that fans look forward to most are the derbies; those games against local rivals which are sure to be described as 'full-blooded', 'committed' and 'probably going to end up in a fight'. The Championship even saw a derby in one of its play-off semi-finals last season, as Norwich beat Ipswich in the 'Old Farm' games to reach Wembley and eventually win a place in the Premier League - which sadly leaves poor old Ipswich (along with Hull, Middlesborough and MK Dons) without any real derbies to look forward to. Never mind, maybe the season after?

We've picked out all the big derby games for you to get in the diary; in particular, 5 March should be an unmissable weekend, with four crunch derbies taking place at the business end of the season.
