Who’s David Prutton tipping for victory within the Sky Guess Championship within the midweek spherical of fixtures? Discover out right here…
Blackburn vs Hull, Tuesday 7.45pm – Reside on Sky Sports activities Area
For the second sport in a row, Blackburn dropped factors from a successful place on Saturday when Luton pulled two late objectives again to select up a 2-2 draw. I do surprise how a lot of a psychological impact that may have on them, notably given the actual fact they’ve solely gained as soon as for the reason that opening day.
Nonetheless, they might be licking their lips on the prospect of dealing with Hull, who’re actually having a troublesome time in entrance of objective. It is now six video games with no win in all competitions for Grant McCann’s males and, in 5 of them, they’ve failed to search out the online. I am going for a comparatively routine residence win.
Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)
Bournemouth vs QPR, Tuesday 7.45pm – Reside on Sky Sports activities Soccer
I am actually trying ahead to this one, as two of the division’s early front-runners face off on the south coast. Bournemouth had a little bit of a difficult week earlier than the worldwide break, however they appeared rejuvenated towards Barnsley a couple of days in the past and strolled to victory. What a begin to the season younger Jordan Zemura is having, by the way in which.
In the meantime, QPR are certainly one of solely three groups to stay unbeaten within the Championship to date and I used to be impressed by the battle they confirmed to come back again towards Studying to protect that standing. I am sure there might be objectives on this one, I simply can’t name a winner.
Prutton predicts: 2-2 (Sky Bet odds)
Sheffield United vs Preston, Tuesday 7.45pm – Reside on Sky Sports activities Soccer Pink Button
The return to the second tier was, initially, just a little bit rocky for Sheffield United, however they do appear to be settling in just a little bit higher now – not least because of the six they put previous Peterborough on the weekend. It is the form of win that does wonders for the arrogance of a squad.
Preston have had a fairly Positive month, with three wins and a draw of their final 4 outings in all competitions. They too have began to attain objectives, however although they are going to be hoping to overlook the drab goalless draw with Bristol Metropolis, I am undecided they will take something at Bramall Lane.
Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)
Birmingham vs Fulham, Wednesday 7.45pm – Reside on Sky Sports activities Soccer Pink Button
Birmingham’s win at Derby on Friday evening wasn’t probably the most convincing, however they had been scientific and picked up three factors that go away them on the cusp of the highest six, which is a good platform for Lee Bowyer to construct upon.
I am going to maintain my arms up and say I didn’t anticipate Fulham to lose at Blackpool on Saturday. That they had such an electrical begin, however simply got here unstuck at Bloomfield Highway. I believe they might effectively stutter on this one, too.
Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)
Stoke vs Barnsley, Wednesday 7.45pm – Reside on Sky Sports activities Soccer
The previous few seasons have been powerful for Stoke, however they’re lastly breaking freed from the clutches of mid-table and laying the foundations for a promotion push, it appears. Michael O’Neill’s males are joint-second lowest scorers within the high 10, which they may little question be hoping to enhance on, however they’ve gained three of their final 4 video games and are ticking alongside properly.
Barnsley, nevertheless, are stuttering in the intervening time and have gained simply certainly one of their final six video games in all competitions. The Tykes can not seem to settle right into a rhythm, and for that purpose, I am backing a house win right here.
Prutton predicts: 2-0 (Sky Bet odds)
Nottingham Forest vs Middlesbrough, Wednesday 7.45pm – Reside on Sky Sports activities Soccer Pink Button
It is an understatement to say issues aren’t going to plan for Forest in the intervening time. They’re nonetheless rooted to the bottom of the desk, with only a level to their identify, and the stress is rising on Chris Hughton by the day. That first win of the season has not been forthcoming.
Although not fairly as gloomy, there is a comparable scenario at Middlesbrough. With the calibre of gamers they introduced on this summer season, expectations had been excessive and also you’d think about Neil Warnock might be disillusioned with what he has seen to date. I believe they might simply take the factors right here, however not by a lot.
Prutton predicts: 0-1 (Sky Bet odds)
