Tuesday's Championship predictions including West Bromwich Albion vs. Fulham

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Tuesday night's Championship games, including a promotion showdown between West Bromwich Albion and Fulham.

Second will welcome fourth in the Championship on Tuesday night as Fulham head to West Bromwich Albion for what is a huge clash in the second tier of English football.

West Brom are currently three points behind leaders Leeds United with three games left, while Fulham occupy fourth in the table, five points behind the Baggies in the race for automatic promotion.

We say: West Brom 1-1 Fulham


West Brom will be desperate to return to winning ways as they chase down Leeds at the summit, but Fulham have won their last four in the Championship, impressing in the process. We are expecting a tight game at the Hawthorns and are struggling to separate them, therefore backing a 1-1 draw.

Reading vs. Middlesbrough (Tuesday, 6.00pm)

Middlesbrough travel to the Madejski Stadium to face Reading knowing that victory could put the club on the brink of survival in the Championship.

Meanwhile, Reading play host to the North-East outfit sitting comfortably in mid-table after a recent return of seven points from three matches.

We say: Reading 1-1 Middlesbrough


While Reading have been performing well with little pressure on their shoulders, we cannot help but think that Boro will respond after their poor performance at the weekend. With that in mind, expect a draw at the Madejski Stadium, potentially courtesy of a late equaliser from the visitors.

Wigan vs. Hull City (Tuesday, 6.00pm)

Wigan Athletic play host to Hull City with the opportunity to move 12 points clear of the Championship relegation zone, the margin required to avoid the drop when their points deduction for entering administration is enforced.

Meanwhile, while the Tigers head into the contest in 22nd position, victory has the potential to leave them a further win away from guaranteeing their place in the second tier for another season.

We say: Wigan Athletic 2-1 Hull City


Although Wigan are the clear favourites, we feel that this contest will be tighter than many people expect. Nevertheless, the Latics have the momentum, and that could lead to them prevailing by the odd goal in three.

Cardiff vs. Derby (Tuesday, 7.45pm)

Promotion-chasing rivals Cardiff City and Derby County face off in a huge match at the top end of the Championship on Tuesday evening.

Cardiff have lost back-to-back games but are still in possession of the final playoff spot, three points better off than 10th-placed opponents Derby.

We say: Cardiff City 1-1 Derby County


Both teams enter this match on the back of successive defeats and will be targeting all three points in South Wales. Only Millwall have drawn more games than Cardiff and Derby this term, and we can see the points being shared in midweek.

Luton vs. QPR (Tuesday, 7.45pm)

Luton Town will be looking to build on a big victory last time out and climb out of the Championship relegation zone when they take on Queens Park Rangers in midweek.

The Hatters beat Huddersfield Town 2-0 on Friday and are now within two points of safety, while QPR lost for a fifth time in six games and are down in 16th.

We say: Luton Town 1-2 Queens Park Rangers


Luton have given themselves a real shot at dodging the drop thanks to their win over Huddersfield. They have failed to win any of their last four home matches, however, while QPR have won two of their last four on their travels, so we are backing the visitors to edge this one.

Millwall vs. Blackburn (Tuesday, 7.45pm)

Millwall and Blackburn Rovers square off in the Championship on Tuesday night with just two points separating the clubs in the Championship table.

While the Lions are one win away from potentially breaking into the top six, Blackburn can move ahead of their hosts with victory in East London.

We say: Millwall 1-1 Blackburn Rovers


With everything at stake, the general consensus is that both teams will go all out for victory. However, they will also be wary of conceding the first goal, and we feel that mindset will lead to a low-scoring draw being played out.

Huddersfield Town will be looking to boost their hopes of avoiding relegation from the Championship when they travel to Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.

The Terriers are currently 20th in the table, just two points above the relegation zone, while Wednesday occupy 14th position and are not in danger of dropping into the bottom three.

We say: Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 Huddersfield Town


Huddersfield are in desperate need of a win, but we are struggling to back the visitors on Tuesday night. Wednesday were excellent against QPR last time out, and we fancy them to put another three points on the board as they look to end the campaign on a positive note.
