Wednesday's Championship predictions including Bournemouth vs. Cardiff City

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


Barnsley vs. Stoke (Wednesday, 7.00pm)

Barnsley and Stoke City square off in the Championship on Wednesday evening with just goal difference separating the two playoff-chasing clubs.

While the Tykes are unbeaten in their last five fixtures in the second tier, the Potters have recently got back on track with successive home victories.

We say: Barnsley 1-1 Stoke City


While both teams will be confident of earning maximum points at Oakwell, they will also be wary of gifting their opponents an edge in the race for the playoffs. With that in mind, expect a low-scoring contest in Yorkshire, one which could end in a draw.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Brentford vs. Sheff Weds (Wednesday, 7.00pm)

Promotion contenders Brentford play host to Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday evening looking to end their three-match losing streak in the Championship.

The visitors have also lost successive games in the second tier, leaving the Owls three points adrift of safety with a game in hand.

We say: Brentford 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday


Both teams will have nerves heading into this encounter as they bid to improve their recent results. While the visitors could potentially make things difficult for Brentford, we feel that the Bees will show a greater cutting edge in this contest, particularly when it comes to pushing for all three points in the closing stages.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Swansea vs. Coventry (Wednesday, 7.00pm)

Swansea City head into Wednesday's Championship fixture with Coventry City looking to bounce back from their surprise defeat at Huddersfield Town.

Meanwhile, Coventry make the trip to the Liberty Stadium on the back of a 2-0 success against Brentford, by far their biggest win of the season.

We say: Swansea City 2-1 Coventry City


Feeling that their hosts are fragile after the weekend's results, we expect Coventry to go all out for another surprise win. Nevertheless, Cooper's side will look to dominate the ball in a bid to get back on track, and they could gradually wear down opponents who still have several defeats in their short-term memory.

Bournemouth vs. Cardiff (Wednesday, 7.45pm)

Championship playoff contenders Bournemouth and Cardiff City face off on Wednesday evening as the battle for a top-six finish heats up.

Cardiff have won five games in a row to close the gap on stuttering sixth-placed Bournemouth to three points ahead of this huge game at the Vitality Stadium.

We say: Bournemouth 1-1 Cardiff City


Cardiff are the Championship's form team, having taken 15 points from the last 15 on offer, whereas Bournemouth have won just twice in their last nine matches.

However, the Cherries have won five of their last six home league matches against Cardiff - losing the other 3-1 in 2002 - and we can see them halting City's winning run here.

Blackburn vs. Watford (Wednesday, 7.45pm)

Two sides in contrasting form face off at Ewood Park on Wednesday evening as mid-table Blackburn Rovers play host to promotion-chasing Watford.

Blackburn have lost four games in a row and are 12th in the Championship, while Watford are up in third after winning three games on the spin.

We say: Blackburn Rovers 0-2 Watford


Four defeats in a row have effectively ended Blackburn's campaign, with Mowbray's men neither in serious playoff contention nor at any risk of relegation.

Watford have a lot to play for and can potentially end the midweek set of fixtures in the automatic promotion zone with a fourth straight win, which we are backing them to pick up.

Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.

Preston vs. QPR (Wednesday, 7.45pm)

Queens Park Rangers will be aiming to continue their ascent up the Championship table when they take on out-of-form Preston North End at Deepdale on Wednesday evening.

Mark Warburton's men have won four games in a row to move up to 13th, level on points with a Preston side with just two wins from their last nine league matches.

We say: Preston North End 1-1 Queens Park Rangers


QPR are on a fine run of form, particularly away from home, while Preston have lost three of their last four at Deepdale.

The form guide certainly points towards an away win on Wednesday, though North End do boast a good record in this fixture and we can see them stopping the rot with a point.
