Brentford vs. QPR (Saturday, 12.30pm)
Mark Warburton's side are 15th in the league standings but are only six points off a playoff place and come into the game off the back of two emphatic wins.
We say: Brentford 3-1 QPR
This game should see plenty of goals, given the attacking prowess of both teams, but QPR are significantly weaker at the back than Brentford and that could prove to be their undoing.
Barnsley vs. Huddersfield (Saturday, 3pm)
The home side are in real trouble, level on points with bottom club Luton Town, while Huddersfield are sitting gingerly in 20th place.
We say: Barnsley 1-2 Huddersfield Town
Barnsley will throw everything at this game, getting the ball into the final third as often as possible, but their woeful defensive record means that the home side are very likely to ship goals at the other end.
Blackburn vs. Preston (Saturday, 3pm)
With just three points and three places separating the two teams in the table, this fixture looks likely to be a highly competitive affair.
We say: Blackburn Rovers 1-1 Preston North End
In a game between two local rivals so close to each other in the table, with both teams going through a patch of lowly form, expect this game to be a cagey, attritional affair, with a draw the most likely outcome.
Charlton vs. West Brom (Saturday, 3pm)
We say: Charlton 0-2 West Brom
Charlton are a struggling side and their plethora of injuries is making life difficult for Bowyer. Even though West Brom are not flying at the moment, they should still have too much for their hosts.
Hull vs. Fulham (Saturday, 3pm)
Hull sit just two points outside of the playoffs ahead of the encounter with the Cottagers, who occupy fifth position with 42 points to show from their 26 league matches during the 2019-20 campaign.
We say: Hull 1-1 Fulham
Hull will enter the match in the better form, while Fulham are without a victory in their last three away from home in the Championship. The Tigers have a lengthy injury list at the moment, though, and we expect the visitors to secure a share of the spoils on Saturday afternoon.
Leeds vs. Sheffield Wednesday (Saturday, 3pm)
Leeds are only ahead of West Bromwich Albion at the top of the table on goal difference and will be keen to stay ahead of their title rivals with a positive result.
We say: Leeds United 1-0 Sheffield Wednesday
Both the recent history of this fixture and both teams' prowess at the back indicate a low-scoring affair, but Leeds may just edge it on home soil.
Luton vs. Birmingham (Saturday, 3pm)
The Hatters are currently bottom of the second tier with 21 points, while Birmingham occupy 18th position having collected 28 points from their first 26 matches of the 2019-20 campaign.
We say: Luton 1-1 Birmingham
Both teams will see this match as the perfect opportunity to pick up all three points. It is difficult to back either with any real confidence due to their recent form, though, and we therefore fancy a low-scoring draw.
Middlesbrough vs. Derby (Saturday, 3pm)
Boro have won four of their last five matches in all competitions, while Derby will enter the contest off the back of three straight victories, including back-to-back successes in the league.
We say: Middlesbrough 1-1 Derby County
Both teams will enter the match full of confidence following strong runs, and we are therefore finding it difficult to separate them. The two managers would probably accept a draw if it were offered ahead of kickoff and that is what we expect to happen at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Reading vs. Nottingham Forest (Saturday, 3pm)
Both Reading and Nottingham Forest will be full of confidence heading into Saturday afternoon's fascinating Championship affair at the Madejski Stadium.
Indeed, Reading have won each of their last four in the Championship, while Forest have been victorious in their last three to sit firmly inside the playoff positions at this stage of the campaign.
We say: Reading 1-2 Nottingham Forest
This is a tough match to call considering the form of both teams. Reading will be confident heading into the contest, but we fancy Forest to pick up three important points courtesy of a narrow win.
Stoke vs. Millwall (Saturday, 3pm)
The Potters are just one point clear of the drop, while Millwall are a point off the playoffs and a win for either would be a major boost.
We say: Stoke City 0-0 Millwall
Both sides are in decent form and, while Millwall are the better side at present, Stoke have plenty riding on this fixture as well. Coupled with home advantage, the hosts may battle to just their fourth league draw of the season.
Wigan vs. Bristol City (Saturday, 3pm)
The Latics are currently 22nd in the table having won just five of their 26 league outings this season, while Bristol City sit 11th having struggled for results over the last month or so.
We say: Wigan Athletic 2-2 Bristol City
Wigan have been the draw specialists in the Championship in recent weeks, and we are expecting more of the same at the DW Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Bristol City will see this game as the perfect chance to put three points on the board, but Johnson's side are not in the best form.
Cardiff vs. Swansea (Sunday, 12pm)
Swansea made the faster start to the season and currently sit sixth in the table, but Cardiff are only four points back and know that a win will put them within a point of their arch rivals.
We say: Cardiff City 2-1 Swansea City
Swansea are suffering with injuries to two of their key centre-backs and this could prove the difference in a tight match like this. Expect Harris to have a plan for how to exploit this weakness and it will be interesting to see if Cooper can respond.body check tags ::
