Tuesday's Championship predictions including Bournemouth vs. Swansea City

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Tuesday's Championship fixtures, including Bournemouth vs. Swansea City.


Cardiff vs. Stoke (Tuesday, 7.00pm)

Cardiff City play host to Stoke City on Tuesday night under pressure to remain in the hunt for a Championship playoff spot.

While the Bluebirds now sit seven points off the top six, the visitors are all but out of the race for promotion after four defeats in five games.

We say: Cardiff City 2-0 Stoke City


The manner of Stoke's defeat at Middlesbrough suggests that they are now out of contention for a return to the Premier League. While we expect an improved performance, Cardiff are well set to get back to winning ways with minimal fuss.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Derby vs. Brentford (Tuesday, 7.00pm)

Brentford head into their Championship fixture at Derby County looking for the victory which could take them back into the top two of the standings.

Meanwhile, on the back of a five-match winless streak, the Rams find themselves back in a battle to avoid relegation to League One.

We say: Derby County 0-2 Brentford


Facing the division's best attack is difficult at the best of times, but Derby's task has been made tougher due to their poor form in front of goal. With that in mind, we are backing the visitors to control the contest at Pride Park, eventually prevailing in comfortable fashion.

Middlesbrough vs. Preston (Tuesday, 7.00pm)

Middlesbrough will try to keep their Championship playoff hopes alive when they host Preston North End on Tuesday evening.

Boro are in ninth and eight points behind the top six, while Preston's dreams of getting into the end-of-season lottery were ended long ago and they sit 15th.

We say: Middlesbrough 2-0 Preston North End


The two teams will be at complete opposite ends of the confidence scale after Saturday's results, and with such a quick turnaround, it would not be a surprise to see Middlesbrough continue to kick on and Preston go into their shell.

Rotherham vs. Watford (Tuesday, 7.00pm)

Watford will be wary of avoiding a potential banana skin in their fight for promotion as they travel to struggling Rotherham United on Tuesday evening.

The Hornets currently occupy second place in the Championship behind runaway leaders Norwich City, while the Millers find themselves in the bottom three.

We say: Rotherham United 1-2 Watford


Watford have really found their groove over the last couple of months, and the level of talent in their squad is incredible for this level. Rotherham do not get beaten heavily and that is unlikely to be the case here, but the Millers will struggle to get anything from this tough encounter.

Luton vs. Coventry (Tuesday, 7.00pm)

After seeing their weekend trip to Rotherham United postponed, Coventry City will visit Luton Town in the Championship on Tuesday.

The Sky Blues remained in 20th despite not playing on Saturday, while the Hatters slipped to 16th following defeat to Swansea City.

We say: Luton Town 0-0 Coventry City


Coventry will know that this is an opportunity to pull well clear of the relegation zone against a Luton side that have very little to play for in their final 11 games. However, it is hard not to take into account the Sky Blues' woeful away record so we think that this one will end level.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or draw.

Bournemouth vs. Swansea (Tuesday, 7.45pm)

Swansea City make the trip to Bournemouth on Tuesday evening knowing that they will move into second spot in the Championship standings if they avoid defeat at the Vitality Stadium.

The Cherries head into this contest on the back of a potentially-costly defeat against Barnsley, a result which has left the club five points adrift of the top six.

We say: Bournemouth 1-2 Swansea City


The size of the deficit to Barnsley means that Bournemouth cannot settle for a share of the spoils from this game. However, that will only play into the favour of the visitors, whom we expect to edge their way to victory over the 90 minutes.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or draw.
