Saturday's Championship predictions including Norwich City vs. Bournemouth

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

Brentford vs. Millwall (Saturday, 12.30pm)

Brentford play host to Millwall on Saturday afternoon realistically requiring all three points to remain in the hunt for automatic promotion.

While the Bees are currently nine points adrift of second-placed Watford, opponents Millwall are now focused on trying to achieve a top-eight finish in the Championship standings.

We say: Brentford 2-1 Millwall

With little to play for, Millwall can head into this London derby with the freedom to express themselves. Nevertheless, we expect Brentford's added motivation to get them over the line, potentially by the odd goal in three after a tight contest.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Luton vs. Watford (Saturday, 12.30pm)

Watford can move a step closer to securing an instant return to the Premier League when they travel to local rivals Luton Town on Saturday afternoon.

The Hornets have won seven of their last eight games to open up a seven-point gap on third place, while Luton are 13th after returning to winning ways last time out.

We say: Luton Town 1-2 Watford

Second-placed Watford may have a healthy gap on the chasing pack, but they have a tough run of fixtures to see out the campaign.

A trip to rivals Luton will be far from straightforward, but the Hatters' home form is not the best and we can see Xisco's men getting the job done here.

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

Middlesbrough vs. QPR (Saturday, 12.30pm)

Teams separated by just one place and two points face off at Riverside Stadium on Saturday afternoon as Middlesbrough host Queens Park Rangers.

Boro are winless in four and are no longer in realistic promotion contention, while QPR are positioned just behind after a mixed run of form.

We say: Middlesbrough 1-1 Queens Park Rangers

There has been very little to separate Boro and QPR over the course of the campaign and two of the last three meetings between the sides have finished level.

We can see that being the case again at the Riverside on Saturday in a clash between two teams that will have to settle for a place just outside the playoffs.

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

Nottingham Forest welcome Huddersfield Town to the City Ground knowing that one more win will effectively secure their place in the Championship for another 12 months.

Meanwhile, the Terriers head into this contest on the back of five games without a win, leaving the 19th-placed outfit in a relegation battle with the teams below them.

We say: Nottingham Forest 2-1 Huddersfield Town

Every point counts for Huddersfield at this stage, a scenario which may leave them in two minds over whether to push for victory or settle for avoiding defeat. Nevertheless, we expect Forest to edge out their opponents, continuing a run which will only encourage supporters ahead of next season.

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

Relegation-threatened Sheffield Wednesday host Bristol City in a crucial Championship encounter on Saturday as they look to close a eight-point gap to safety.

Both sides head into this fixture out of form, with the Owls claiming only 13 points from a possible 48 since the beginning of February, while the Robins have accumulated just 10 points in the same period.

We say: Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 Bristol City

With only a maximum of 15 points available for Sheffield Wednesday until the end of the season, securing three of those against Bristol City is crucial if they are to close the eight-point gap to safety.

As a win is more important for the hosts, we feel that they might just edge a closely-fought contest this weekend.

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

Stoke vs. Preston (Saturday, 12.30pm)

Stoke City head into Saturday's Championship fixture with Preston North End looking to end a run of two successive defeats.

While the Potters are safe in mid-table, the visitors must respond to their 5-0 demolition at the hands of Brentford as they bid to avoid a relegation battle.

We say: Stoke City 1-1 Preston North End

Having being outclassed in their last outing, it would come as a surprise if Preston do not place extra focus on their backline. However, Stoke are not firing on all cylinders at either end of the pitch, leading us to predict an uneventful draw in the Potteries.

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

Swansea vs. Wycombe (Saturday, 12.30pm)

Promotion hopefuls Swansea City will host basement club Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday for the first time since October 2007 as they look to keep their slim hopes of automatic promotion alive.

Meanwhile, the Chairboys have claimed seven points from their last 12 available in the Championship and although survival remains a tall order, they will not go down without a fight.

We say: Swansea City 2-1 Wycombe Wanderers

Each of Swansea's last seven Championship matches have seen only one team score, with the Welsh side losing four of these matches.

Every game is a must-win for Wycombe now and although Ainsworth will likely throw caution to the wind, we feel that the Swans will edge what should be a tight encounter on Saturday.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Norwich vs. Bournemouth (Saturday, 8.00pm)

Norwich City could secure promotion to the Premier League against Bournemouth on Saturday night.

A win for the Canaries would see them return to the top flight at the first time of asking, or a point would be enough if Brentford drop points earlier in the day, but the Cherries also need the points in their playoff bid.

We say: Norwich City 1-1 Bournemouth

An in-form Bournemouth side would not have been Norwich's pick of teams to face as they look to get over the line, and we are expecting a tight game at Carrow Road. The Cherries still need the points themselves and are growing in confidence so will not rollover and let the Canaries celebrate.

As they kick off at 8pm, Norwich will know exactly what is required of them to win promotion on Saturday and one point may be enough.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
