Tuesday's Championship predictions including Norwich City vs. Watford

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

Brentford vs. Cardiff (Tuesday, 6.00pm)

Brentford play host to Cardiff City on Tuesday evening knowing that only victory will do if they want to remain in the automatic promotion race.

While the Bees sit eight points adrift of second-placed Watford with a game in hand, opponents Cardiff are realistically out of contention for the Championship playoffs after four games without a win.

We say: Brentford 1-1 Cardiff City

Both sides have proven this season that they are capable of making an impact in the final third. However, inconsistency has hampered these teams of late, leading us to predict a frustrating 90 minutes for each side on Tuesday evening.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Norwich vs. Watford (Tuesday, 6.00pm)

Norwich City will clinch the Championship title if they beat Watford on Tuesday.

The Canaries' promotion to the Premier League was confirmed on Saturday and the second-placed Hornets will now be eager to follow them back into the top flight of English football.

We say: Norwich City 1-1 Watford

Despite Norwich's promotion being secured, this is still set to be a really interesting encounter with the league title on the line and Watford's own promotion status far from certain given their remaining games; we think that it will end all square, which will suit the Canaries much more than the Hornets.

Preston vs. Derby (Tuesday, 7.00pm)

Derby County's relegation fears have intensified in recent weeks and the Rams travel to Preston North End on Tuesday in desperate need of a win.

Wayne Rooney's side have four games left to play in the Championship and are only four points above the bottom three, with 22nd-placed Rotherham United holding two games in hand.

We say: Preston North End 1-1 Derby County

Coming up against an inconsistent side with nothing to play for, Derby would hope to take all three points from this one, but it is unlikely to be that straightforward. Their away record is a big concern, while being in a rut at this stage of this season is hard to get out of. Preston have also shown more fight since Neil left his post, so we are backing a draw.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Sheffield Wednesday are edging closer to relegation from the Championship and their fate could be sealed against Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night.

With four games left to play, the 23rd-placed Owls are seven points adrift of safety, while Rovers are 15th and have nothing to play for.

We say: Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 Blackburn Rovers

In truth, nothing less than a win will be good enough for Wednesday if they are to stay in the Championship. We think that they will get just that though against a Blackburn side that will have taken confidence from their win over Derby but are too inconsistent to convince of consecutive victories.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Swansea vs. QPR (Tuesday, 7.00pm)

Swansea City will look to keep their slim hopes of automatic promotion from the Championship alive when they host Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday.

The Welsh side are currently in third, six points behind second-placed Watford, while QPR are 10th with little left to play for.

We say: Swansea City 1-0 Queens Park Rangers

Swansea will certainly miss Ayew, but we still expect them to have just about enough to edge past a QPR side for whom there is nothing on the line. With Watford travelling to leaders Norwich, the Swans could be three points off the automatic promotion spots by the end of Tuesday.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
