Sunday's Championship predictions including Derby County vs. Leeds United

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Sunday's Championship matches - Derby County vs. Leeds and Barnsley vs. Nottingham Forest.

Leeds United take to the field for the first time since being promoted to the Premier League after a 16-year absence when they visit Derby County on Sunday.

The Whites have won four games in a row and have already been crowned champions with two matches to play courtesy of results elsewhere this weekend, while Derby themselves can no longer win promotion.

We say: Derby County 0-2 Leeds United


Leeds have won four of their last five away matches - as many as they managed in the previous 13 on the road - while Derby have lost three games in a row and are winless in four. We fully expect Leeds to cap off a celebratory weekend in style with a 27th win of an incredible campaign.

Barnsley vs. Nott'm Forest (Sunday, 3.00pm)

Nottingham Forest are seeking the win needed to make certain of a playoff spot as they make the trip to bottom side Barnsley, who also require a victory to avoid being relegated.

The visitors have gone four games without a win but are still well placed to finish in the top six, while Barnsley lost again in midweek and are heading back to League One.

We say: Barnsley 0-2 Nottingham Forest


Barnsley have kept three successive clean sheets at Oakwell, but Forest have netted 10 times across their last four visits to this ground. The visitors will be looking to return to winning ways in order to seal a playoff spot and we are backing them to do exactly that on Sunday, officially relegating their opponents in the process.
