Who is David Prutton towards victory in the Sky Bet Championship this weekend? Find out here …

Luton vs Bournemouth, Saturday 12.30pm – Live on Sky Sports Football

Luton saw his festive program absolutely decimated by the Covid. They haven’t played in the Championship since December 11! But they returned to action with a decent FA Cup victory last weekend, which should have helped knock out a few cobwebs.

Bournemouth clinched back-to-back victories over Christmas to return to the top of the Championship standings. They’ll keep that lead a bit longer with a win here, but I think they’ll be held.

Derby vs Sheffield United, Saturday 3pm

You cannot write off Derby. The fact that even after deducting 21 points they are still being talked about in terms of potential survival is simply remarkable. Their performances and results at Christmas were brilliant.

Sheffield United have won four in a row but haven’t played for a few weeks now. They hope the lack of action hasn’t slowed their momentum. All things considered, I am supporting a draw here.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Fulham vs Bristol City, Saturday 3pm

What a victory for Fulham at Reading. Another seven-goal midweek blow, just like the one they gave Blackburn earlier in the season. When all the cogs click into place, they are formidable at this level.

Considering some of the issues he has faced, Nigel Pearson is actually doing a decent job with Bristol City this season. These two met in the FA Cup last week and Fulham won at Ashton Gate, and it’s likely they will do it again at Craven Cottage.

Prutton predicts: 3-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Middlesbrough vs Reading, Saturday 3pm

Middlesbrough is moving up the rankings with a real sense of threat under Chris Wilder. Hopefully they added goals as well, with recent loanouts from Aaron Connolly and Folarin Balogun. It could be a really exciting second half of the season at Riverside.

The same cannot be said of reading. Hammered midweek by Fulham, hovering just over relegation spots and knocked out of the FA Cup last week by non-League opposition. Veljko Paunovic has all kinds of problems to face. This is not the game he would like to try and start making a difference. Home victory.

Prutton predicts: 3-0 (Sky Bet odds)

QPR vs West Brom, Saturday 3 p.m.

David Prutton’s Sky Bet Championship Predictions |  Football news

Two solid away wins for QPR on either side of the New Year have put them back on track in the hunt for the play-offs. They are fifth in the standings and have played fewer games than almost all of the teams around them. They are in an excellent position.

West Brom is winless in three. More worryingly, they have only scored four goals in their last eight league games. Daryl Dike has arrived, and we saw what he did at Barnsley last season, but there are a lot of expectations on his shoulders to deliver. This one, in truth, could go either way. So I’m going to do a draw.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Hull vs Stoke, Sunday 12pm – Live on Sky Sports Football

No four wins now for Hull in the Championship, although they will be reinforced by giving a very decent account of themselves in their eventual loss to Everton in the FA Cup last weekend.

Stoke didn’t have a good festive race, but got back to winning ways against Leyton Orient last weekend. They haven’t won a league game since early December and believe this streak could continue. Draw for me.

Prutton predicts: 2-2 (Sky Bet odds)
