Saturday's Championship predictions including Norwich City vs. Reading

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

Sheffield Wednesday will be relegated from the Championship if they lose to Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon.

The Owls are 23rd in the table and four points behind 21st-place Derby County, meaning they need to better the Rams' result against Swansea City to stay in the hunt for survival.

We say: Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 Nottingham Forest


This seems like a fairly ideal game for Wednesday. Forest look to already be on the metaphorical beach and struggle to score, so we expect the Owls and their usually tight defence to earn a vital win. As this game is the Saturday lunchtime kickoff, they will then watch on nervously as Derby travel to Swansea at 3pm.

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

Birmingham City welcome Cardiff City to St Andrew's on Saturday afternoon with their place in the Championship ensured for another season.

The Blues beat Derby County 2-1 last time out to make certain of survival, while Cardiff saw off Wycombe Wanderers by the same scoreline to tighten their hold on eighth place.

We say: Birmingham City 2-2 Cardiff City


With the pressure off for both sides, this could be an entertaining contest in the West Midlands.

Eighteen goals have been scored in the last four meetings between the sides, and we can see the spoils being shared here in a high-scoring draw.

Brentford vs. Watford (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Brentford play host to already-promoted Watford with the opportunity to seal third place in the Championship standings ahead of the playoffs.

While the Hornets still have ambitions to win the title, they need to pull off a five-point swing in two games to end the season ahead of leaders Norwich City.

We say: Brentford 1-2 Watford


To a certain degree, there is less pressure on both sides ahead of this contest. However, Watford have the freedom to place more emphasis on attack, leading us to predict a late victory for the visitors.

Huddersfield vs. Coventry (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Huddersfield Town play host to Coventry City on Saturday afternoon knowing that victory will secure their place in the Championship for another 12 months.

While the Sky Blues are safe from relegation, Mark Robins will want his side to finish as high in the table as possible with 14th position still up for grabs.

We say: Huddersfield Town 1-2 Coventry City


Should Huddersfield survive in the second tier, it will be down to their form at the John Smith's Stadium. Nevertheless, Coventry have been excellent in recent weeks, leading us to back a hard-fought win for the away team.

Luton vs. Middlesbrough (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Luton Town and Middlesbrough will both be keen to secure top-half finishes in the Championship when they meet on Saturday afternoon.

The two sides sit 11th and ninth respectively at this stage of the campaign, separated by three points, with the Hatters having three games left to play and Boro two.

We say: Luton Town 1-1 Middlesbrough


This is a tricky one to call as both sides are ending the campaign in good form. Middlesbrough probably have more quality, but Luton have the squad depth to freshen things up as this gruelling season reaches a conclusion, and we are therefore backing a draw.

Millwall vs. Bristol City (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Millwall and Bristol City face off at The Den on Saturday afternoon in the penultimate round of Championship fixtures.

The Lions are eight points better off than City, but like their opponents they have little left to play for in the remaining week of the regular season.

We say: Millwall 1-1 Bristol City


Both sides are in bad form and have little left to play for on the face of it heading into the penultimate round of fixtures.

Millwall won the reverse fixture 2-0, but they have not completed a league double against City since 1992-93 and we can see that run being prolonged with a draw here.

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

Norwich vs. Reading (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Norwich City will win the Championship title if they beat seventh-place Reading on Saturday afternoon.

The Canaries are five points ahead of second-place Watford, so would also clinch the trophy regardless of the result if the Hornets drop points against Brentford.

We say: Norwich City 2-0 Reading


We expect Norwich to get over the line and lift the Championship trophy on Saturday afternoon. Reading will be deflated after their playoff dream was ended last week, making it a fairly straightforward task for the free-flowing Canaries.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Preston vs. Barnsley (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Barnsley will be looking to keep their momentum going heading into the Championship playoffs when they travel to Preston North End on Saturday afternoon.

The Tykes have won their last two games and are guaranteed a top-six finish, while Preston have also won successive matches to climb into 14th place.

We say: Preston North End 1-1 Barnsley


It is job done as far as Barnsley are concerned as they have already made certain of a place in the playoffs, but they will be eager to keep their momentum going with victory here.

Preston have hit a good patch of form themselves and, while the hosts do not have any real targets to aim for at this point, we can see them picking up what would be a good point.

Rotherham vs. Blackburn (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Rotherham United are in desperate need of a victory as they fight for Championship survival, and they host Blackburn Rovers on Saturday afternoon.

The 22nd-placed Millers are four points behind Derby County in 21st, with a game in hand over the Rams, but they are running out of time entering the final straight.

We say: Rotherham United 2-2 Blackburn Rovers


Ordinarily you might give Rotherham a good chance of winning this game as Blackburn have nothing to play for, but the Millers seem dead on their feet and Rovers are on a confidence high after last weekend; it should be an open affair but ultimately we think that the hosts will not quite get the result they need.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Stoke vs. QPR (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Stoke City and Queens Park Rangers square off on Saturday afternoon looking for the victory which would help them secure a top-half finish in the Championship standings.

The visitors hold a five-point advantage over their next opponents, who remain at risk of dropping down to 15th spot before the end of the campaign.

We say: Stoke City 1-2 Queens Park Rangers


With his job potentially under threat, O'Neill will demand a strong performance from his Stoke side this weekend. Nevertheless, QPR look a team on the up under Warburton, and we are backing the visitors to show a greater cutting edge in the final third.

Swansea vs. Derby (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Derby County head to promotion hopefuls Swansea City on Saturday afternoon with their Championship survival hopes now in their own hands.

The Rams can confirm their second-tier status with victories in their remaining two games, while Swansea are already guaranteed a playoff spot.

We say: Swansea City 1-0 Derby County


Swansea have struggled for momentum in recent weeks and are winless in four league home league matches, losing three of those.

Derby have collected just one point from the last 24 on offer on their travels, however, and it is difficult to see them picking up the win they need this weekend.

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

Wycombe vs. Bournemouth (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Wycombe Wanderers play host to Bournemouth knowing that only victory will do if they want to retain any hope of remaining in the Championship.

While the Cherries have already sealed a place in the playoffs, the visitors are looking to get back on track after seeing their seven-match winning streak ended by Brentford last weekend.

We say: Wycombe Wanderers 0-2 Bournemouth


Needing to record two wins and pull off a 13-goal swing, Wycombe will inevitably push forward throughout this contest. However, that will only play into the hands of the visitors, who we feel will record a comfortable win at Adams Park.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
