Listen to the Prutton’s Predictions show!
David Prutton joins Sky Sports’ Simeon Gholam to discuss all his Championship predictions ahead of gameweek 24. You can listen below, as he reveals who he is backing on Saturday.
Middlesbrough vs Birmingham, Saturday 12.30pm – Live on Sky Sports Football
Middlesbrough are in a decent stretch of form in the Championship. That FA Cup defeat at Brentford last week won’t bother Neil Warnock too much at all.
Birmingham are on a bad run. Will a return to the Riverside inspire Aitor Karanka? I can’t see it if I’m honest.
Prutton predicts: 2-0 (Sky Bet odds)
- Championship fixtures | table | highlights
Cardiff vs Norwich, Saturday 3pm
Cardiff’s recent run of form has been sticky. Neil Harris needs to turn things around soon, but he likely couldn’t have asked for a tougher fixture.
Norwich what we’ve seen where they are. they’ve been and done it before. they are the Championship leaders for a reason, its a cliché but i think they’ll show their credentials in this one as well.
Prutton predicts: 0-2 (Sky Bet odds)
Derby vs Rotherham, Saturday 3pm
A huge game near the bottom of the table. Both these sides start in the relegation zone and in real need of a win.
The Chorley defeat won’t have much impact on Derby for obvious reasons. But the takeover talk and everything else going on behind the scenes may do. Rotherham lost at Everton but it was a morale-boosting FA Cup performance for them. I’ll back a draw here.
Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)
QPR vs Wycombe, Saturday 3pm
What a return and an impact for Charlie Austin at QPR. The first game back at the side and a big goal in their 2-0 win at Luton on Tuesday night – a massive result for Mark Warburton’s side.
It was an emphatic win for Wycombe over Preston in the FA Cup. Gareth Ainsworth would no doubt have traded it for three points in the league, but it will give them confidence going into this one. I think there will be goals, but I can’t split these two. Score draw.
Prutton predicts: 2-2 (Sky Bet odds)
Watford vs Huddersfield, Saturday 3pm
One win, one defeat for Xisco Munoz at Watford so far in the Championship. But he’s had a tough start against Norwich and Swansea in his first two games. Their home record has been good this season, and he will want to maintain that.
Huddersfield are ticking along under Carlos Corberan. They can give anyone a game, but their inconsistency is why they find themselves in mid-table. I think this should just go the way of Watford.
Prutton predicts: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds)
Barnsley vs Swansea, Saturday 7.45pm – Live on Sky Sports Football
With a couple of weeks to reflect since these two last played in the Championship it is just worth noting how well they are both doing and how much they have both impressed me. Barnsley, under Valerien Ismael, have been very easy on the eye, and we all know what Steve Cooper has done with Swansea.
This has all the makings of a very good game. Barnsley aren’t too far off the play-offs and Swansea start the weekend in the top two. It is all to play for. I think there will be a few goals, and I think the Swans may just edge it.
Prutton predicts: 2-3 (Sky Bet odds)
