Saturday's Championship predictions including Stoke vs. Sheffield United

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's Championship fixtures, including Stoke vs. Sheffield United.


Birmingham vs. Bristol City (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Birmingham City host Bristol City at St Andrew's in the Championship on Saturday, with both teams currently sitting in the bottom half of the table.

The Blues had their four game unbeaten run ended by Middlesbrough in midweek, while the visitors drew at home to bottom-of-the-table Coventry City.

We say: Birmingham City 1-1 Bristol City


With little splitting the two sides, we see this one finishing as a draw. Bristol City are a threat going forward and will have opportunities, but they have shown defensive frailties and are yet to keep a clean sheet on the road. As such, Birmingham should be good enough to get a point.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Blackburn vs. Rotherham (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Blackburn Rovers welcome Rotherham United to Ewood Park in the Championship on Saturday, looking to bounce back from their sixth defeat of the season in midweek.

Rotherham, meanwhile, are looking for their first win under newly-appointed manager Matthew Taylor, who drew his first game in charge against Millwall on Wednesday.

We say: Blackburn Rovers 2-1 Rotherham United


Blackburn have been very good at home, and Rotherham are yet to win away so the hosts should be just too strong.

The Millers have been good defensively, though, so it won't be easy for Rovers.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Blackpool vs. Watford (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Watford travel to Bloomfield Road to square off against Blackpool on Saturday afternoon looking for the win which may move the club back into the Championship playoff places.

At a time when the Hornets sit in ninth position in the standings, Blackpool are down in 21st place after a run of four games without success.

We say: Blackpool 1-2 Watford


On the back of the defeat to Swansea, Bilic will be eager to record a bounce-back win. While we do not think that the visitors will have it all their own way in the North-West, we are backing the Hornets to edge this contest by the odd goal in three.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Coventry vs. Burnley (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Coventry City will be looking to kickstart their season with a strong showing against Vincent Kompany's Burnley on Saturday.

The Sky Blues battled to a goalless draw with Bristol City on Tuesday night, and will be hoping for something similar against a Clarets side on a nine-game unbeaten run.

We say: Coventry City 1-1 Burnley


Coventry are in a bit of form and are constantly improving, and Burnley are also on a good run themselves. It will be two solid teams cancelling each other out in the end.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Millwall vs. Middlesbrough (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Millwall welcome Middlesbrough to The Den on Saturday afternoon in a game where a win could drag them out of the bottom half.

Meanwhile, interim coach Leo Percovich will again lead Middlesbrough out while the club search for a replacement for Chris Wilder.

We say: Millwall 1-1 Middlesbrough


Despite their recent victory over Birmingham, Middlesbrough are yet to prove themselves on the road this season and with The Den being a tricky place to get a result from, a score draw appears to be on the cards here.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Norwich vs. Preston (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Dean Smith's Norwich City host Preston North End on Saturday afternoon, when a win will see them continue to ramp up the pressure on table-toppers Sheffield United.

Preston are yet to concede away from home this season though, so could prove to be a stern test for the Canaries.

We say: Norwich City 1-0 Preston North End


Norwich City have been typically strong at home and appear to have momentum on their side following Sheffield United's recent hiccups.

Preston have to be respected though, and they could give the home side a nervy and frustrating encounter if they manage to frustrate them for large periods of the game. A narrow home win appears to be on the cards.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Stoke vs. Sheff Utd (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Sheffield United square off against Stoke City on Saturday afternoon looking for the win which they may require to remain at the top of the Championship standings.

Meanwhile, the home side are down in 20th position, a consequence of going three games without success in the second tier.

We say: Stoke City 1-2 Sheffield United


Having earned a credible draw at Turf Moor, Stoke will believe that they can get back to winning ways at the weekend. However, the visitors will also be motivated to get back on track, and we feel that the Blades will edge a competitive encounter at the bet365 Stadium.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Swansea vs. Sunderland (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Swansea City play host to Sunderland on Saturday afternoon looking to extend their Championship winning streak to four matches.

At a time when the home side have moved into the playoff positions, Sunderland have dropped down to eighth spot in the standings after three successive draws.

We say: Swansea City 1-1 Sunderland


With Swansea producing some of their best form under Martin, they will have total confidence that they can continue to strengthen their playoff bid. However, we cannot ignore that Sunderland are proving difficult to beat under Mowbray, leading us to predict a low-scoring draw in South Wales.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

West Brom vs. Luton (Saturday, 3.00pm)

West Bromwich Albion play host to Luton Town on Saturday afternoon with Steve Bruce desperately requiring three points to cling onto his job at The Hawthorns.

At a time when the Baggies occupy a spot in the Championship relegation zone, Luton are in 10th place in the standings after a four-match unbeaten streak.

We say: West Bromwich Albion 1-2 Luton Town


West Brom supporters are becoming more despondent with their team's performances by the game and Bruce has no choice but to go out all-out attack against the Hatters. Nevertheless, Luton generally perform well away from home, and we feel that they will do enough to condemn the Baggies to another match without a win.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Wigan vs. Cardiff (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Wigan Athletic welcome Cardiff City to the DW Stadium on Saturday afternoon, when a win for the home side could propel them into the playoffs if other results go their way.

Meanwhile, Cardiff are unbeaten in two games since firing Steve Morison and replacing him with Mark Hudson.

We say: Wigan Athletic 1-1 Cardiff City


A five-point return from three games would represent a good start for Mark Hudson, and because both sides look evenly matched going into Saturday's game a score draw looks to be the most likely result here.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.
