Reading will be looking to make it three Championship victories in a row when they travel to fellow promotion contenders Preston North End on Sunday lunchtime.

The Royals enter the weekend's fixtures fifth in the table, eight points better off than 10th-placed Preston, who have themselves been in good form over the past month.

We say: Preston North End 1-2 Reading

Preston won the reverse meeting 3-0 in early November and are seeking a league double in this fixture for the first time since 2015-16.

The Lilywhites returned to winning ways last time out and are one of the division's most in-form sides over the past five weeks, but Reading have looked even stronger of late and we are tipping them to exact some revenge.

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

Middlesbrough vs. Blackburn (Sunday, 3.00pm)

Middlesbrough have a chance to strengthen their Championship promotion prospects when they take on Blackburn Rovers at the Riverside Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Neil Warnock's side have been in good form and are just three points behind sixth-placed Bournemouth, who are not in action this weekend due to FA Cup commitments.

Blackburn will feel that they are also in promotion contention, though they are six points behind Boro after a run of one win in five league outings.

We say: Middlesbrough 1-1 Blackburn Rovers

Seven of the last 10 league meetings between Middlesbrough and Blackburn have ended as a draw, including the reverse fixture earlier this campaign.

In fact, the last five league encounters between these sides at the Riverside have ended all square, so we can only see this contest ending one way.

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