Saturday's Championship predictions including Derby County vs. Norwich City

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's Championship fixtures, including Derby County vs. Norwich City.


Millwall vs. Swansea (Saturday, 12.30pm)

Two sides in completely contrasting form face off at The Den on Saturday afternoon as top-six chasing Millwall host fourth-placed Swansea City.

Millwall have won three games in a row to climb up the table, while Swansea are looking over their shoulder after losing four in a row.

We say: Millwall 1-1 Swansea City


Going by form alone, this is a game that in-form Millwall will feel confident of winning against out-of-form Swansea.

It is surely just a matter of time before the Swans click back into gear, however, and they are without defeat in four trips to The Den, so we are backing them to claim a point.

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

Bournemouth vs. Coventry (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Bournemouth could have the chance to break into the Championship playoff positions when they host Coventry City on Saturday.

The Cherries are currently in seventh, a point behind Reading who they have a game in hand over, while Coventry sit in 20th and are not yet clear of relegation danger.

We say: Bournemouth 2-0 Coventry City


Despite a confidence-boosting win for Coventry on Monday, this will be a much tougher challenge for the Sky Blues, particularly with their poor away record. Bournemouth will eager to carry on building momentum in their playoff push and should get all three points.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Barnsley vs. Middlesbrough (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Barnsley will be looking to tighten their grip on a playoff spot in Saturday's home clash with Middlesbrough, whose own top-six hopes are fast fading.

The Tykes returned to winning ways last time out to climb into fifth, while Boro are nine points off the playoffs following a three-game winless streak.

We say: Barnsley 2-1 Middlesbrough


Middlesbrough won October's reverse fixture 2-1 and are seeking a first league double over Barnsley since the 2011-12 campaign.

The hosts are a completely different side six months on, though, even if they have been shaky at Oakwell of late, and we can see them picking up all three points here.

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

Birmingham vs. Stoke (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Birmingham City play host to Stoke City on Saturday afternoon looking for a victory which could take the club as high as 18th place in the Championship standings.

While Blues are attempting to avoid relegation, the visitors have been left to play for pride now that they sit 11 points adrift of the playoffs.

We say: Birmingham City 0-0 Stoke City


While Stoke have little to play for on Saturday afternoon, they do not possess the best record in front of goal. With Blues likely being content with a share of the spoils, do not be surprised to see a low-scoring draw.

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

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

Bristol City will be desperate to end their seven-game winless run at home when they welcome Nottingham Forest to Ashton Gate in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Nigel Pearson's side were put to the sword by Coventry City last time out, while Forest secured back-to-back wins by beating Queens Park Rangers.

We say: Bristol City 1-2 Nottingham Forest


Bristol City's abysmal home record has to end at some point, but an in-form Forest will leapfrog their opponents in the table with a win and will not want to pass that opportunity up. While we think Pearson's side will do enough to find the back of the net, the visitors' Easter results cannot be overlooked, so we expect Forest to prolong the Robins' misery at Ashton Gate.

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

Cardiff vs. Blackburn (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Cardiff City and Blackburn Rovers will both be looking to recover from back-to-back losses when they face off in South Wales on Saturday afternoon.

The Bluebirds crashed 5-0 to Sheffield Wednesday last time out, while Blackburn were soundly beaten 2-0 by Bournemouth.

We say: Cardiff City 0-0 Blackburn Rovers


Both sides could really do with a victory this weekend to put a bad run of form behind them.

Cardiff are 12 points better off than Blackburn, but six of the last nine encounters between these sides have finished all square, which we can see being the case again here.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Derby vs. Norwich (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Norwich City will aim to move a step closer to the Premier League when they travel to Derby County on Saturday.

The Canaries are eight points clear at the top of the Championship table and 17 points ahead of third-placed Brentford, while the Rams are 18th and not yet completely safe from relegation.

We say: Derby County 0-3 Norwich City


After two successive draws, Norwich's thrashing of Huddersfield on Tuesday served as a reminder of their sublime quality, and we expect them to be unstoppable again on Saturday. Derby's injury problems make this game even harder, and Rooney may simply be prepared to write this one off in their fight for survival.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Huddersfield vs. Rotherham (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Huddersfield Town head into their Championship encounter with Rotherham United looking to respond to their 7-0 defeat at leaders Norwich City earlier this week.

While the Terriers currently hold an eight-point advantage over their 22nd-placed opponents, Rotherham possess three games in hand ahead of their trip to the John Smith's Stadium.

We say: Huddersfield Town 2-1 Rotherham United


For a number of reasons, nerves will play their part on Saturday afternoon as both teams look to claim a much-needed victory. Although the Millers are strong away from home, we are backing Huddersfield to earn a narrow win, potentially through a fast start to the contest.

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

Preston vs. Brentford (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Brentford square off against Preston North End on Saturday afternoon knowing that only a win will do if they realistically want to remain in contention for automatic promotion.

At a time when Brentford have recorded four Championship draws in succession, Preston have eased any relegation concerns with four points from games against Norwich City and Swansea City.

We say: Preston North End 1-1 Brentford


With extra breathing space above the bottom three, Preston can afford to play with freedom against another promotion-chasing team. With that in mind, we feel that the home side are well equipped to claim a positive result, holding their out-of-form opponents to a draw.

Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.

QPR vs. Sheff Weds (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to build on their impressive win over Cardiff City last time out when they travel to Queens Park Rangers on Saturday afternoon.

The Owls saw off playoff-chasing Cardiff 5-0 on home soil to keep their survival hopes alive, while QPR went down 3-1 to Nottingham Forest in their most recent match.

We say: Queens Park Rangers 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday


Wednesday will be full of confidence on the back of their big win over Cardiff, which makes it two victories in their last three.

QPR were beaten by Forest last time out, meanwhile, but they have looked strong on home soil since the start of February and we can see them prevailing in this clash.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Wycombe vs. Luton (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Wycombe Wanderers play host to Luton Town on Saturday afternoon looking to extend their winning streak in the Championship to three matches.

Although Luton have already reached the 50-point mark, Nathan Jones will want to end a two-match losing streak as soon as possible as the Hatters bid to end an excellent season on a high.

We say: Wycombe Wanderers 2-1 Luton Town


Despite their respective league positions, we can only back Wycombe to prevail on Saturday afternoon. Ainsworth will throw caution to the wind, and his team are currently playing with the confidence to produce some quality in the final third.

Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.
