Sports Mole


Watford vs. Bournemouth (Saturday, 12.30pm)

Two of the clubs relegated from the Premier League last season meet in the Championship on Saturday as Watford host Bournemouth.

The two teams were promoted to the top-flight together in 2015 before coming down as a pair in the summer, and now both will be hoping they can make immediate returns to the promised land.

We say: Watford 1-1 Bournemouth


There should be an awful lot of quality on show at Vicarage Road on Saturday which will hopefully produce an entertaining game. It makes deciding a winner particularly tricky – Watford may edge it through home advantage, but Bournemouth will not want to lose their unbeaten record.

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

Bristol City vs. Swansea (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Swansea City travel to Bristol City this coming Saturday as they look to get back to winning ways after dropping points at home to Huddersfield Town, and then again on Wednesday night away to Coventry City.

The Robins had their undefeated record wiped out at home to Middlesbrough in midweek after a defensive error handed Boro a 1-0 win at Ashton Gate.

We say: Bristol City 1-1 Swansea City


Swansea have shown strong away form of late, and will provide a stern test for the Robins. We expect this to be a cagey affair with neither team willing to leave themselves exposed to their opponents' attacking threat, and as a result we see this one ending in a draw.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Cardiff vs. Middlesbrough (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Neil Warnock returns to former club Cardiff City this weekend with the aim of maintaining Middlesbrough's solid start to the 2020-21 Championship campaign.

Boro have lost just one of their six league outings and enter this match one point better off than Cardiff, who are themselves unbeaten in three games.

However, Warnock has not won an away league match against City since April 2006 - a 1-0 victory as Sheffield United manager, drawing four and losing two since then.

We say: Cardiff City 1-0 Middlesbrough


This will be an emotional occasion for Warnock on his first return to the Cardiff City Stadium since departing the Bluebirds 11 months ago.

His new side have made themselves very tough to beat - the true hallmark of a Warnock side - but they do not tend to do well in this fixture.

Cardiff have won 15 of their last 19 home league games with Boro, including victories in each of the last three by the same 1-0 scoreline, which we can see being repeated here.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Coventry vs. Blackburn (Saturday, 3.00pm)

After two successive defeats, Blackburn Rovers will be aiming to find their feet again when they travel to Coventry City on Saturday.

Tony Mowbray's team lost 3-1 to high-flying Watford on Wednesday, while the Sky Blues earned a 1-1 draw against Swansea City.

We say: Coventry City 1-2 Blackburn Rovers


Various injuries have made it difficult for Coventry to find a settled side in recent weeks, and that could be their undoing against a Blackburn team with plenty of attacking threat ready to punish any mistakes that the Sky Blues make.

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

Huddersfield vs. Preston (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Huddersfield Town welcome Preston North End to The John Smith's Stadium on Saturday as they look to make it three wins from three.

Huddersfield came out on top against a struggling Derby County side in midweek, while Preston North End secured another good result away from home, beating Queens Park Rangers 2-0.

We say: Huddersfield Town 2-2 Preston North End


Both teams come into this fixture buoyed by recent results and will be keen to press their case as the surprise package for this season. We see goals in this one, but we cannot separate the two sides, and see the spoils being shared.

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

Millwall vs. Barnsley (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Millwall welcome Barnsley to The Den on Saturday afternoon, as two sides at opposite ends of the table face-off for the first time this season.

Millwall come into this fixture off the back of two strong wins, the most recent coming over Luton Town, while Barnsley have taken two points from the last two courtesy of two 2-2 draws.

We say: Millwall 2-0 Barnsley


Barnsley interim coach Murray will be hoping for an upset to ease worries of relegation, but we see Millwall being too strong for the Yorkshire side and able to continue their strong form into the coming weeks.

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

Norwich vs. Wycombe (Saturday, 3.00pm)

A trip to a Norwich City team beginning to hit their stride back in the Championship would not have been Wycombe Wanderers' ideal fixture choice as they continue to search for their first points in the division.

The Chairboys lost for the sixth successive match against Reading on Tuesday night, while the Canaries defeated Birmingham City 1-0.

We say: Norwich City 2-0 Wycombe Wanderers


Wycombe proved on Tuesday that they are able to compete with the league's best, but they just need be more effective in both boxes. Sadly it is hard to see them picking up anything against a Norwich side still packed with quality, but surely those elusive points are just around the corner.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

QPR vs. Birmingham (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Queens Park Rangers host Birmingham City at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium this coming Saturday, as two sides level on six points lock horns.

QPR will be looking to put the midweek defeat to Preston North End behind them, while Birmingham City made it two losses in the space of four days when going down 1-0 to Norwich City.

We say: Queens Park Rangers 0-0 Birmingham City


Both sides have not been at their best of late, and we are anticipating a scrappy affair as these two battle it out for the points. As such, it may be that neither manages to break the deadlock, resulting in a 0-0 draw.

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

Reading vs. Rotherham (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Championship leaders Reading will host a newly-promoted side for the second game in a row on Saturday as Rotherham United travel to the Madejski Stadium.

The Royals defeated Wycombe Wanderers 1-0 on Tuesday night to overtake Bristol City, who were beaten by Middlesbrough.

We say: Reading 1-0 Rotherham United


Low-scoring wins could become a theme for Reading this season and all the signs point towards that happening on Saturday. Paunovic has made the Royals a clinical side, and that will be key against a resolute Rotherham team.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Sheff Weds vs. Luton (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Sheffield Wednesday and Luton Town square off at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon having both suffered defeats in the Championship in midweek.

While the Owls remain in bottom place due to their points deduction at the beginning of the campaign, the Hatters occupy 12th position in the table.

We say: Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Luton Town


With both clubs having generally performed well since the start of the season, a competitive encounter should be played out in Yorkshire this weekend. Their respective backlines have been performing better than their attacks, however, and that may lead to an uninspiring low-scoring draw.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Stoke vs. Brentford (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Stoke City and Brentford meet in the Championship on Saturday afternoon with just one point separating the two clubs in the standings.

While the visitors have prevailed in their last two outings, the home side are currently on a four-match unbeaten run in the second tier.

We say: Stoke City 1-1 Brentford


Stoke were uncharacteristically poor in defence in midweek, but that may only result in a much-improved performance when faced with stronger opposition. With that in mind, we feel that the Potters will do enough to claim a share of the spoils against the Bees.

Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.
