Derby vs. Coventry (Saturday, 12.30pm)
At a time when the Rams sit six points adrift of safety, Coventry are down in 11th position after losing three of their last four league matches.
We say: Derby County 1-2 Coventry City
With a draw doing neither side any good, we expect both clubs to push hard for all three points at the weekend. However, with the home side under the greater pressure, that may benefit Coventry, who we are backing to claim a late win at Pride Park.
Sheff Utd vs. Barnsley (Saturday, 12.30pm)
The Blades have playoff hopes and are currently one point behind the top six in ninth place, while the Tykes are 22nd and chasing safety.
We say: Sheffield United 2-1 Barnsley
Sheffield United would have been heavy favourites for this game a couple of weeks ago, but their stuttering form and injury crisis combined with Barnsley's growing confidence makes this game slightly harder to predict. The Blades should still just about edge it, but do not be surprised to see the Tykes take a point.
Bristol City vs. West Brom (Saturday, 3.00pm)
At a time when the Baggies sit down in 12th position, six points adrift of their target, Bristol City are in 18th spot after a prolonged run of inconsistency.
We say: Bristol City 1-2 West Bromwich Albion
For all of their inconsistency, Bristol City have shown this season that they are capable of posting surprise wins every so often. However, we do not feel that will be the case at the weekend, with West Brom well set to collect another hard-fought three points away from home.
Huddersfield vs. Bournemouth (Saturday, 3.00pm)
The Terriers are currently third in the table and just three points behind the Cherries in second. Meanwhile, the South coast side trail leaders Fulham by 11 points.
We say: Huddersfield Town 0-0 Bournemouth
With plenty at stake and both teams faltering over the last 10 days, this could be a nervy and perhaps low-scoring affair. We cannot separate the teams and are predicting a draw, which Bournemouth are likely to be much happier with than Huddersfield.
Hull City vs. Luton (Saturday, 3.00pm)
The Hatters are currently fifth in the table and one point ahead of seventh place, while the Tigers sit in 19th.
We say: Hull City 0-2 Luton Town
Despite Hull's win in midweek, their inconsistency and poor home form does not give much encouragement ahead of the visit of a confident Luton side. We think the Hatters will continue their playoff charge with a victory at the MKM Stadium.
Reading vs. Blackburn (Saturday, 3.00pm)
Meanwhile, Reading head into Saturday's fixture on the back of four games without success, leaving the Royals just two points above the relegation zone.
We say: Reading 1-2 Blackburn Rovers
With home advantage in their favour, Reading will back themselves to get at least a point on the board against their inconsistent opponents. However, we feel that Blackburn's win in midweek will do them the world of good, leading us to predict a narrow victory for the visitors.
Stoke vs. Millwall (Saturday, 3.00pm)
At a time when the Lions sit just two points adrift of the playoffs, Stoke are down in 16th position with manager Michael O'Neill under pressure to keep his job at the Potters.
We say: Stoke City 1-2 Millwall
With O'Neill potentially being at the point of no return, he will surely instruct his side to attack their opponents on Saturday. Nevertheless, that will not necessarily trouble a well-drilled Millwall side, and we are backing the visitors to fight their way to a narrow win.
Swansea vs. Birmingham (Saturday, 3.00pm)
The Swans – beaten playoff finalists last season – are currently 15th in the Championship table, six points ahead of the Blues in 20th who are set for a sixth consecutive bottom-half finish.
We say: Swansea City 1-0 Birmingham City
Neither of these two sides have much to play for, so this could end up being somewhat of a drab encounter. Swansea appear to be in a slightly better place going forward, so we think that the Welsh side will just sneak a victory.
