Saturday's Championship football predictions including Coventry vs. West Brom

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's Championship fixtures, including Coventry vs. West Brom.

Coventry City and West Bromwich Albion meet in a league fixture for the first time since March 2010 on Saturday afternoon.

The Sky Blues are currently sixth in the Championship table, one point behind the Baggies who are fourth.

We say: Coventry City 0-0 West Bromwich Albion


With both sides picking up plenty of draws lately and the fact they are so close in the table, we think that this game will also end level. Both teams will probably take a cautious approach to avoid losing the game, so it may even finish goalless.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Barnsley vs. Huddersfield (Saturday, 3.00pm)

It is South Yorkshire versus West Yorkshire in the Championship on Saturday as Barnsley host Huddersfield Town.

Going into the game, the Tykes are 23rd in the table and eight points adrift of safety, while the Terriers are eighth and five points behind the playoffs.

We say: Barnsley 1-0 Huddersfield Town


A home game against a faltering Huddersfield side could be just the fixture that Poya Asbaghi needs to kick-start his Barnsley reign. Goals are a problem for both of these sides so it should be a low-scoring affair, but we think the hosts might just sneak a victory.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Blackburn vs. Preston (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Blackburn Rovers play host to Preston North End on Saturday afternoon looking to strengthen their position in the Championship playoff places.

While Rovers currently sit in fifth position in the standings, North-West rivals Preston are down in 17th spot despite collecting four points from two games.

We say: Blackburn Rovers 2-1 Preston North End


Having gotten back on track in recent games, Preston will fancy their chances of causing an upset at the home of their rivals. However, we cannot back against Rovers, who could edge this contest by the odd goal in three.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Blackpool vs. Luton (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Blackpool and Luton Town meet in the second tier for the first time in 43 years on Saturday afternoon at Bloomfield Road.

Both teams are enduring difficult runs of form; the Tangerines are currently 11th in the Championship table, two points ahead of the Hatters who are 15th.

We say: Blackpool 1-1 Luton Town


Both teams will see this game as an opportunity to turn their form around, so it should be a hard-fought, scrappy game in Lancashire. We think that they could cancel each other out and both take home a point that neither side will be particularly happy with.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Bristol City vs. Derby (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Derby County make the trip to Ashton Gate to face Bristol City having dropped 19 points adrift of safety in the Championship standings.

However, the Rams will move to within 19 points of Saturday's opponents with a win, Bristol City currently occupying 18th position in the table.

We say: Bristol City 1-1 Derby County


With draws becoming less valuable by the game, Derby will push for all three points at Ashton Gate. However, that effort may not prove enough, and we are backing Bristol City to come away with at least a share of the spoils from this contest.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Cardiff vs. Sheff Utd (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Cardiff City will welcome Sheffield United to the Welsh capital for their Championship encounter on Saturday afternoon.

The Bluebirds have won three of their last four league matches, while the Blades are looking to win three successive league games for the first time since December 2019.

We say: Cardiff City 1-1 Sheffield United


Both Cardiff and Sheffield United have shown signs of improvement in the last few weeks and will be hoping to build momentum with another three points this weekend.

However, with little to separate these two teams, a score draw could be on the cards at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Middlesbrough vs. Swansea (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Middlesbrough play host to Swansea City on Saturday afternoon with Chris Wilder having collected his first win against Huddersfield Town last time out.

Boro now sit in 12th position in the Championship standings, one point adrift of the ninth-placed visitors to the Riverside Stadium.

We say: Middlesbrough 1-1 Swansea City


Given the inconsistency of the teams above them, both sides know the importance of collecting three points on Saturday. Nevertheless, with neither of these clubs particularly free-scoring, an uneventful draw appears to be the most likely outcome.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Millwall vs. Birmingham (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Millwall will be looking to claim their first Championship victory in over a month when they welcome Birmingham City to The Den on Saturday afternoon.

The visitors, meanwhile, are hoping to secure back-to-back league wins for the first time since October and climb into the top half of the table.

We say: Millwall 2-1 Birmingham City


Millwall and Birmingham head into this contest off the back of contrasting results last weekend, with the Blues in higher spirits and hoping to leapfrog the Lions in the table with a victory.

However, the hosts have enjoyed playing at The Den in recent weeks and we can see Rowett's men returning to winning ways with a narrow win.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

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

Nottingham Forest play host to Peterborough United on Saturday afternoon looking to end a run of five draws from six matches in the Championship.

At a time when Forest are in 16th position, Peterborough travel to the City Ground sitting four points adrift of safety.

We say: Nottingham Forest 3-1 Peterborough United


Cooper and his Forest players know that another draw will not be warmly received at the weekend. With that in mind, we expect a positive performance from the home team, one which should earn them a relatively comfortable three points.

Reading vs. Hull City (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Resurgent Hull City will be aiming to make it five consecutive wins when they travel to Reading in the Championship on Saturday.

The Tigers' recent run has lifted them out of the relegation zone to 19th, one point ahead of Reading who are 21st.

We say: Reading 2-2 Hull City


Hull continue to surprise with the results they have picked up so it would be naive to write them off, but Reading's confidence will have been given a huge boost by victory over Swansea so they will not roll over for the Tigers. This should be an entertaining game, but one which we think will end level.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.
