Sunderland, Leeds United and Ipswich Town stars make Championship Team of the Season so far - gallery
There are some surprise names in the Championship team of the season so far.
The Black Cats have enjoyed a largely positive opening three months to the season and were sat in the Championship play-off spots when thoughts turned towards the international break last week. An impressive 3-1 win over Birmingham City was secured thanks to goals from Adil Aouchiche, Nectarios Triantis and former Blues youngster Jobe Bellingham.
That has given Tony Mowbray's men a platform to build on upon their return to Championship action as they begin the run-in to the crucial festive period when they travel to the south coast on Saturday afternoon.
