Saturday's Championship predictions including Bournemouth vs. Coventry

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's Championship fixtures, including Bournemouth vs. Coventry.

Preston vs. Fulham (Saturday, 12.30pm)

Fulham square off against Preston North End on Saturday afternoon looking to strengthen their position at the top of the Championship standings.

While Preston have been inconsistent of late, Tuesday's comeback 2-1 victory at Middlesbrough has kept them within seven points of the playoffs.

We say: Preston North End 0-2 Fulham

Having failed to net against the division's bottom side, Fulham will be motivated to put things right on Saturday. Regardless of whether Mitrovic returns to the fold, we would still back the Cottagers to claim all three points with a clean sheet.

Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.

Bournemouth and Coventry City will be eager to get back to winning ways following midweek draws when they meet in the Championship on Saturday.

The Cherries are second in the table and a point behind leaders Fulham, while the Sky Blues are fifth.

We say: Bournemouth 2-0 Coventry City

With Bournemouth strong at home and Coventry shaky away, we think that it will be the Cherries who get back on track on Saturday afternoon. Injuries continue to hamper Scott Parker's side, but as long as Dominic Solanke is firing they will always be favourites.

Birmingham vs. Blackpool (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Birmingham City and Blackpool head into Saturday's Championship fixture at St Andrew's both looking to end their recent winless streaks.

While 11th-placed Blackpool are without a victory in four games, Blues are down in 17th position after failing to prevail in any of their last three fixtures.

We say: Birmingham City 0-1 Blackpool

Neither team have found the back of the net on a regular basis of late, and it feels a near certainty that this contest will be decided by one strike. Given their better position in the table, we are going to side with the visitors to net a late winner.

Huddersfield Town head into Saturday's Championship encounter with Middlesbrough sitting three points adrift of the playoff places.

Meanwhile, having failed to win any of their last five fixtures, Boro have dropped down to 15th position in the standings.

We say: Huddersfield Town 1-0 Middlesbrough

With both teams needing a response for different reasons, we expect a competitive clash at the John Smith's Stadium. One goal could settle this contest, and we are going to back the Terriers to edge this game in the closing stages.

A resurgent Hull City will be aiming for a fourth consecutive victory when they host mid-table Millwall in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

The Tigers' recent hot streak has moved them up to 19th in the table and three points above the relegation zone, while the Lions are 10th and four points behind the playoffs.

We say: Hull City 0-0 Millwall

We think four wins in a row might be one step too far for Hull, particularly against a stubborn Millwall side who have lost just one of their last seven. We expect the Tigers to still get something out of the game though and are predicting it to end all square.

Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.

Cardiff City will be looking to bounce back from defeat in midweek by claiming all three points against Luton Town, when they do battle in the Championship at Kenilworth Road on Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the hosts, who sit seven points clear of the visitors, are hoping to avoid a fifth successive league defeat against the Bluebirds.

We say: Luton Town 1-1 Cardiff City

Both Luton and Cardiff head into this contest after failing to score in midweek, however we can see the two sides finding the net on Saturday.

The Hatters have struggled in recent seasons against the Bluebirds, but having impressed more so than their Welsh counterparts in the Championship so far this season, they should be strong enough to claim at least a point on home soil.

Peterborough vs. Barnsley (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Championship strugglers Peterborough United and Barnsley meet in an early relegation six-pointer on Saturday afternoon.

The Posh are currently 22nd in the table and two points adrift of safety, while the Tykes are four points further behind in 23rd.

We say: Peterborough United 1-1 Barnsley

This is a difficult game to call, least of all because both teams have struggled for wins this season. Peterborough need a reaction from Wednesday's thrashing but could go into their shell, while Asbaghi remains an unknown quantity at Barnsley and has not had much time to get his ideas across to the players. We are going for a draw.

Stoke City and Blackburn Rovers meet in the Championship on Saturday afternoon with just one point separating the clubs in the standings.

While the Potters currently occupy the final playoff spot, Rovers will move ahead of their hosts with victory at the bet365 Stadium.

We say: Stoke City 1-1 Blackburn Rovers

Given their contrasting results in midweek, Blackburn will fancy their chances of all three points in the Potteries. Nevertheless, we can see Stoke getting back on track at the weekend, earning a share of the spoils in a competitive fixture.

Swansea vs. Reading (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Championship strugglers Reading travel to Swansea City on Saturday without a win in their last 16 games against the Welsh side.

The Royals are 21st in the table and just two points above the relegation zone, while the Swans are ninth and four points behind the playoffs.

We say: Swansea City 2-0 Reading

Considering Swansea's strong home record and Reading's away woes, the Welsh side are clear favourites for this game. The Swans also have a fully-fit squad to choose from while the Royals are still missing several key players, so we think Russell Martin's side should pick up the three points.
