Brown: Championship wide open
Leeds midfielder Michael Brown admits the Championship is open for anyone to win this season, ahead of Sunday's clash at Leicester.
Experienced midfielder Brown, who scored a stunning 25-yard goal in Tuesday's 2-1 Capital Cup win over Chesterfield, expects the division will once again be impossible to predict.
He told the Yorkshire Post: "The Championship looks tougher than ever, team-wise. It is wide open with lots of great teams.
"Often, people look at a certain team and think they will win but look at what happened last season. That was incredible.
"Wolves and Blackburn, they were both expected to do well. Especially Blackburn, who had a massive go in terms of spending money. But both of them struggled.
"In this division, it is all about team ethic. And if you can get a bit of momentum, that can take you a long way.
"Even if a team is not playing well and nick a couple of 1-0 wins, then it can start things moving."
Rudy Austin returns from suspension for Brian McDermott's side, while El-Hadji Diouf is back in contention after injury.
