Saturday's Championship fixtures including Reading vs. Bristol City

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

Two sides locked in the Championship promotion battle go head to head on Saturday as Reading host Bristol City.

After a magnificent start to the campaign, the Royals have slipped to sixth in the table, while the Robins are one point better off in third.

We say: Reading 1-1 Bristol City


Stopping the rot in midweek was vital for Reading and it gives them something to build on against an in-form Bristol City side. The two teams have had similar campaigns so far and appear well-matched, so an entertaining contest is in store and it could end all square.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Birmingham vs. Millwall (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Birmingham City and Millwall will both be looking to bring an end to their winless runs when they face off at St Andrew's on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts are without a victory in four, while Millwall have gone six matches since last picking up all three points heading into this clash in the West Midlands.

We say: Birmingham City 1-0 Millwall


Birmingham have picked up just one victory in their last seven league meetings with Millwall, drawing two and losing four of those.

However, Millwall boss Rowett is winless in his last four games against his former side and we can see Birmingham snatching a much-needed win on Saturday.

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

Blackburn vs. Barnsley (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Blackburn Rovers play host to Barnsley on Saturday afternoon holding a two-point advantage over their opponents in the Championship standings.

While the home side are unbeaten in four fixtures, the Tykes' 1-0 defeat to Brentford in midweek ended their two-match winning streak.

We say: Blackburn Rovers 1-1 Barnsley


Although Blackburn possess the best attack in the Championship, Barnsley have impressed defensively since the arrival of Ismael. With that in mind, we are backing the visitors to battle their way to a hard-earned point at Ewood Park.

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

Cardiff vs. Luton (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Cardiff City play host to Luton Town on Saturday afternoon with the pressure continuing to build on boss Neil Harris.

The Bluebirds lost 1-0 to Coventry City on Wednesday to make it one win in eight, while Luton played out a third successive draw in midweek and remain in the top half.

We say: Cardiff City 0-1 Luton Town


Cardiff are unbeaten in five league meetings with Luton since 2005 and have won their last two home encounters.

The Hatters enter this game in better form, though, and they have tended to perform better on their travels than at home, so we are going with a narrow away win.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Derby vs. Wycombe (Saturday, 3.00pm)

There is a key battle at the bottom of the Championship on Saturday as Derby County host Wycombe Wanderers in the first ever meeting between the two sides.

The Rams are rooted to the foot of the table with just six points to their name, while the Chairboys sit in 22nd on nine points.

We say: Derby County 1-1 Wycombe Wanderers


Both sides will see this as a winnable fixture, so could ultimately be left disappointed by a point apiece. Derby need a response following their performance on Wednesday night, but Wycombe will not make it easy for them as the Chairboys look to amend their poor away record.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Huddersfield vs. Middlesbrough (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Middlesbrough make the trip to Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon sitting just two points adrift of the Championship playoffs.

Meanwhile, the home side have failed to win any of their last four matches, a run which has resulted in the Terriers dropping down to 16th position.

We say: Huddersfield Town 1-2 Middlesbrough


Regardless of whether teams are sitting at the top or lower end of the table, Middlesbrough have not made a habit of scoring goals. Nevertheless, Boro's ruthless showing against Derby will only lift their confidence in the final third, and we are backing the visitors to edge out their Yorkshire hosts.

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

Norwich vs. Coventry (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Norwich City will be aiming to retain top spot in the Championship when they host Coventry City on Saturday.

The Canaries beat Stoke City 3-2 in midweek – their third successive victory – while the Sky Blues were 1-0 winners over Cardiff City.

We say: Norwich City 3-1 Coventry City


Despite missing several key players, Norwich are in fantastic form and a Coventry side with a poor away record should not pose them much of a threat. With understudies playing in goal for both teams, keep an eye out for any howlers.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Rotherham vs. Bournemouth (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Bournemouth will be targeting top spot in the Championship when they travel to face Rotherham United on Saturday.

The Cherries are on a run of three consecutive wins after beating Nottingham Forest 2-0 on Tuesday, the same night as Rotherham lost 3-2 at Queens Park Rangers.

We say: Rotherham United 0-2 Bournemouth


Bournemouth will head into this game as heavy favourites considering the form they are in, and the quality in their side should be too much for Rotherham, who are beginning to struggle with the busy fixture list which is stretching their squad.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Sheffield Wednesday welcome Stoke City to Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon with Tony Pulis still looking for his first win in charge of the Owls.

The Yorkshire giants sit five points adrift of safety, while the Potters have dropped down to eighth spot after Tuesday's 3-2 defeat to leaders Norwich City.

We say: Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Stoke City


With Stoke having struggled in defence in recent matches, O'Neill will surely look to tighten things up at the back. At a time when Wednesday are struggling for goals, that could lead to a low-scoring draw being played out at the weekend.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Watford vs. Preston (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Watford welcome Preston North End to Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon looking to extend their Championship unbeaten streak to five matches.

Meanwhile, the visitors make the trip to Hertfordshire sitting in 15th position after losing four of their last half-a-dozen fixtures.

We say: Watford 2-1 Preston North End


After recording two low-scoring draws on the road, Ivic will show greater attacking urgency in this contest. While little may separate the teams during the opening hour, we are backing Watford's extra quality to shine through during the latter stages.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
