Tuesday's Championship predictions including Watford vs. Barnsley

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


Derby vs. Bournemouth (Tuesday, 6.00pm)

Derby County welcome third-placed Bournemouth to Pride Park on Tuesday evening, with Wayne Rooney searching for his first win since taking the manager's job on a permanent basis.

The Cherries will be looking to bounce back after succumbing to a surprise defeat to Luton Town last time out, which saw them lose ground on the automatic promotion places.

We say: Derby County 0-2 Bournemouth


Despite Bournemouth's recent struggles in the league, they should have too much quality for a Derby side struggling to find the back of the net and any sort of consistent form. It could be a comfortable victory for Tindall's men, but the Rams are capable of causing an upset on their day.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Reading vs. Coventry (Tuesday, 6.00pm)

Reading host Coventry City in the Championship on Tuesday night with both sides looking to bounce back from FA Cup third round exits last time out.

The two teams are in contrasting positions in the table, with the Royals currently occupying the final playoff place while Mark Robins's men sit in 17th position, just seven points above the relegation zone.

We say: Reading 2-0 Coventry City


With Joao back in the starting XI and in good form, Reading are a different proposition. The 27-year-old adds a significant threat to the side's attack, and he could prove to be the difference on Tuesday.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Blackburn vs. Swansea (Tuesday, 7.00pm)

Blackburn Rovers host Swansea City in the Championship on Tuesday night, with both teams looking to extend their recent good run of form.

Tony Mowbray's men were held to a 1-1 draw by Stoke City last time out, meaning they are unbeaten in their last three outings, while the Swans saw off Barnsley 2-0 at Oakwell.

We say: Blackburn Rovers 1-1 Swansea City


Blackburn's attack and Swansea's defence will face their toughest tests of the season so far and could end up cancelling each other out. Lowe and Armstrong are two of the division's deadliest finishers, and the forwards will be pivotal to their side's chances on Tuesday.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Rotherham vs. Stoke (Tuesday, 7.45pm)

Stoke City make the trip to Rotherham United on Tuesday evening looking to end their four-match winless streak in the Championship.

Meanwhile, the Millers play host to their promotion-chasing opponents sitting in the relegation zone, albeit with two games in hand on their rivals.

We say: Rotherham United 1-1 Stoke City


Stoke's most recent additions should improve their efforts in the final third during the second half of the season. However, the trio of arrivals still need some bedding-in time, and we are backing the home side to claim a share of the spoils on Tuesday night.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Watford vs. Barnsley (Tuesday, 7.45pm)

Watford welcome Barnsley to Vicarage Road on Tuesday evening looking to strengthen their position in the Championship playoffs.

While the Hornets have recorded six points from three games since the appointment of Xisco, Barnsley need a response after suffering back-to-back defeats in the second tier.

We say: Watford 2-0 Barnsley


Barnsley have made a habit of reacting well to setbacks this season, and it would not come as a surprise if they earned a result at Vicarage Road. However, Watford's players appear to be enjoying life under their new boss, leading us to predict a comfortable night for the home side.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.
