Barnsley vs. Bournemouth (Saturday, 3.00pm)
The Cherries are currently third in the table following two consecutive losses, while the Tykes are eight points adrift of safety.
We say: Barnsley 0-3 Bournemouth
Parker will demand a reaction from his Bournemouth side and they could potentially have a field day against a depleted Barnsley team who appear to have very little hope of staying in the Championship this season. Anything other than an away win would be a big shock.
Fulham vs. Blackpool (Saturday, 3.00pm)
At a time when the Cottagers are searching for their fifth successive win, the visitors have ended an indifferent run of form with back-to-back victories of their own.
We say: Fulham 3-0 Blackpool
A week off at this stage of the season has been ideal for Fulham, and we expect to see the benefit at the weekend. While Blackpool have also enjoyed a rest, the home side should have more than enough quality to cruise to victory in West London.
Hull City vs. Swansea (Saturday, 3.00pm)
The former Rangers and Ajax striker takes over with the Yorkshire outfit currently 19th in the Championship table, three points behind the Swans who are 17th.
We say: Hull City 1-0 Swansea City
Usually a change in manager occurs when a team needs a lift, but confidence will already be high in the Hull camp after impressive back-to-back wins.
We think that the Tigers will be victorious again with Swansea still missing the attacking influence of Paterson.
Luton vs. Blackburn (Saturday, 3.00pm)
While the home side currently trail their second-placed opponents by 14 points, they possess two games in hand, but Rovers head into this contest having gotten back to winning ways earlier this week.
We say: Luton Town 1-2 Blackburn Rovers
This has all the makings of a very competitive game, and Luton will fancy their chances of causing the upset after their previous efforts against automatic promotion contenders at Kenilworth Road. Nevertheless, we cannot back against Rovers while they occupy an automatic promotion spot, leading us to predict a narrow win for the visitors.
Middlesbrough vs. Coventry (Saturday, 3.00pm)
The teams currently occupy eighth and ninth position respectively, although the visitors possess a game in hand ahead of their trip to the Riverside Stadium.
We say: Middlesbrough 2-1 Coventry City
This match feels like a must-not-lose rather a must-win, and that could lead to a tense occasion. Nevertheless, taking everything into consideration, we can only see a narrow victory for the hosts, who may outlast their opponents on home territory.
Millwall vs. West Brom (Saturday, 3.00pm)
The Baggies are currently fifth in the Championship table and only just clinging on to a playoff place, while the Lions sit 15th.
We say: Millwall 0-0 West Bromwich Albion
All of the signs point towards this game being a low-scoring affair. Both sides have strong defences but are feeble in attack, while their recent form means neither team will be particularly full of confidence. We are predicting a goalless stalemate.
Preston vs. Bristol City (Saturday, 3.00pm)
However, just three points separate these two teams in the Championship standings, leaving Bristol City with a chance to move towards the mid-table positions.
We say: Preston North End 2-1 Bristol City
Given their respective inconsistencies, all three results was realistically possible at the weekend. Nevertheless, we feel inclined to back the home side, who have the momentum after their victory at The Hawthorns.
QPR vs. Reading (Saturday, 3.00pm)
The Rs are currently fourth in the table and unbeaten in five league matches, while the Royals are hovering just two points above the relegation zone in 21st.
We say: Queens Park Rangers 2-0 Reading
This game is surely heading only one way. QPR have been on fantastic form and are upwardly mobile, while Reading are stuck in a torrid rut and look in real danger of losing their Championship status. We expect the hosts to be relatively comfortable victors.
Peterborough vs. Sheff Utd (Saturday, 5.30pm)
The Blades came out on top in their last encounter with Posh, cruising to a 6-2 win at Bramall Lane in September last year.
We say: Peterborough United 0-2 Sheffield United
Peterborough will view any home encounter as their best chance of claiming points, but they must tighten up defensively if they are to keep Sheffield United at bay, as they have scored in 12 of their last 15 league games.
The Blades impressed against Luton last time out and we expect them to come away with another three points this weekend.
