2017/18 Sky Bet Championship preview: London derbies and Den dates

Part two of our look ahead to the new campaign...

3 July 2017

The first month of the 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship season will conclude with the visit of Norwich City to The Den.

An international break will follow at the beginning of September, but The Lions will be thrust straight back into the Championship limelight with a tough trio of fixtures.

Summer signings Jed Wallace and George Saville will re-visit their old club on the 9th at Millwall travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers, with a mouthwatering London derby in prospect just three days later as the short journey west to Ian Holloway's Queens Park Rangers takes place.

A testing week concludes with old foes Leeds United coming to The Den on 16th September.
