Saturday's Championship predictions including Bournemouth vs. QPR

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's Championship matches, including Bournemouth vs. Queens Park Rangers.


Rotherham vs. Norwich (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Separated by two divisions last season, Rotherham United and Norwich City face off in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Despite being tipped for relegation and promotion respectively before the start of the campaign, the Millers are one point better off than the Canaries at this early stage.

We say: Rotherham United 0-1 Norwich City


Not having Paul Warne on the sidelines could affect Rotherham, but they certainly will not be an easy test for Norwich. The Canaries have not been clinical enough so far this season, but they should just sneak a win.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Bournemouth vs. QPR (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Bournemouth will be hoping to maintain their unbeaten start to the Championship season when they host Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

The west London side come into the game having not won since the opening weekend but are still only two points off the top six.

We say: Bournemouth 2-1 Queens Park Rangers


QPR's recent transfer business has made them a much better side, but the new arrivals may take a couple of weeks to get up to speed. Bournemouth have started life back in the Championship very well and will fancy their chances of picking up a third straight home victory here.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Luton vs. Stoke (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Nathan Jones will come up against his former club when his Luton Town side host Stoke City on Saturday.

The Hatters are currently four points ahead of the Potters in the Championship table, having made an impressive start to the season.

We say: Luton Town 1-1 Stoke City


On paper, Stoke's team is packed with more quality and experience than Luton's, but Nathan Jones is getting the best out of the Hatters and will feel he has a point to prove against his old side. A tight game lies in store.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Barnsley vs. Bristol City (Saturday, 3.00pm)

League leaders Bristol City travel to Barnsley this Saturday, as they look to continue their strong start to the season.

Caretaker manager Adam Murray and his newly-inherited Barnsley side will be hoping for a change in fortune this weekend to distract from the current unrest that surrounds the club.

We say: Barnsley 0-3 Bristol City


Bristol City's visit to Oakwell is unlikely to provide Adam Murray and the club with any respite. We expect to see City run out comfortable winners, which could see them open up a lead at the top should Reading drop points at Middlesbrough, while also condemning Barnsley to the relegation zone.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Brentford vs. Coventry (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Brentford will be hoping to bounce back from their capitulation against Preston North End before the international break when they host Coventry City on Saturday.

The two teams have near-identical records in the Championship after four games, only being separated in the table by two goals.

We say: Brentford 3-1 Coventry City


Brentford need a win to kick start their season and a home fixture against a Coventry side still finding their feet in the Championship presents them with a good opportunity. Even without Benrahma, the Bees have a menacing attack but are unlikely to keep a clean sheet.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Wycombe vs. Millwall (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Wycombe Wanderers welcome Millwall to Adams Park on Saturday afternoon desperately needing to end their run without registering a point or scoring a goal.

As for the visitors, they head into this encounter in 12th position, despite having only posted one victory from their four league fixtures this season.

We say: Wycombe Wanderers 0-2 Millwall


The tough fixtures continue to come thick and fast for Wycombe, and we feel that will lead to a fifth successive defeat at the weekend. Millwall have been no more than solid this campaign, but the Lions should have more than enough quality to emerge victorious.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Blackburn vs. Nott'm Forest (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Sixth place Blackburn Rovers prepare for the visit of struggling Nottingham Forest this weekend – the first of their seven Championship fixtures in the space of 21 days.

The trip to Rovers will be Chris Hughton's first game in charge of Forest, and he will be attempting to secure their first points of the season after a woeful start.

We say: Blackburn Rovers 2-0 Nottingham Forest


This will undoubtedly be a tough opening game for Chris Hughton, who will need time to put his stamp on the team and get them playing the way he wants. Though we see Forest improving in the coming weeks, we expect this fixture - against a free-flowing Blackburn side - to be too tall an order for Hughton's men.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Middlesbrough vs. Reading (Saturday, 3.00pm)

High-flying Reading visit Middlesbrough this Saturday afternoon as they look to extend their winning streak to five league games in a row.

Middlesbrough gained their first win of the season just before the international break, but are unbeaten in their last three having only experienced defeat on the opening weekend to Watford.

We say: Middlesbrough 1-2 Reading


Although Reading have proceeded to sweep teams aside so far this season, we expect this to be a close affair, with Middlesbrough more than capable of holding their own against the league leaders. We expect that one team will shade it, and it could well be that Reading's firepower sees them over the line.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

This Saturday, Birmingham City welcome Garry Monk's Sheffield Wednesday side as they hope to extend their four-match unbeaten streak.

The Owls will be looking to put consecutive defeats behind them and get a result that will see them gain ground on those above them in the table.

We say: Birmingham City 1-0 Sheffield Wednesday


Saturday's trip to St Andrew's is set to be a tough challenge for the injury-riddled Owls. City have looked solid so far this season and we see it only being a matter of time before they break down Wednesday's patched-up backline in what is likely to be a comfortable home win.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Swansea vs. Huddersfield (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Swansea City play host to Huddersfield Town in the Championship on Saturday afternoon looking to extend their unbeaten record to five matches.

Meanwhile, the Terriers moved up to 19th position before the international break after claiming four points from their last two outings.

We say: Swansea City 2-0 Huddersfield Town


While fixtures after the international break are sometimes difficult to call, we cannot back against the home side in this contest. Although significant alterations could be made to their squad ahead of Saturday's game, expect Swansea to prevail in relatively comfortable fashion.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.
