Derby vs. Fulham (Friday, 7.45pm)
Meanwhile, the Rams play host to the Championship promotion contenders sitting in 13th position, nine points adrift of the playoffs.
We say: Derby County 1-1 Fulham
With both teams having failed to win any of the last two games, we feel that this will be a closely-fought contest. Although each side contains proven goalscorers, this could turn out to be a low-scoring draw.
Brentford vs. Blackburn (Saturday, 12.30pm)
However, should they lose at Griffin Park this weekend, the Bees will hold just a two-point advantage over an improving Rovers outfit.
We say: Brentford 2-1 Blackburn Rovers
We expect this contest to be tighter than many are predicting, partly due to Blackburn relishing their tag as promotion underdogs. However, Brentford's extra quality in the final third could ultimately prove to be the difference in the closing stages.
Barnsley vs. Middlesbrough (Saturday, 3pm)
However, the visitors are aware that avoiding defeat at Oakwell will ensure that they at least maintain their nine-point advantage over the bottom-placed side.
We say: Barnsley 1-1 Middlesbrough
Barnsley need the win more so than Middlesbrough, and that could see the home side throw caution to the wind. However, they still need to find the right balance, and Boro may capitalise should they be able to frustrate their hosts.
Birmingham vs. Sheffield Wednesday (Saturday, 3pm)
Wednesday's poor form of late has seen the Owls lose ground on the playoff places and drop into mid-table, meeting a Birmingham side who have turned things around after a difficult start and are now well-clear of the relegation zone.
We say: Birmingham City 2-0 Sheffield Wednesday
Birmingham are in fine form, whereas Wednesday are struggling. Given Clotet's side have home advantage and Monk's men have scored just once in their last four, the Blues could win this one fairly comfortably and keep a clean sheet in the process.
Bristol City vs. West Brom (Saturday, 3pm)
We say: Bristol City 1-2 West Brom
Bristol City's run of five wins in their last seven Championship matches deserves a lot of respect, but West Brom have proved to be the best team in the league thus far this season. We are expecting a very close match at Ashton Gate with the Baggies just having enough to pick up all three points.
Charlton vs. Luton (Saturday, 3pm)
Both sides have started to turn their dire form around and will see this fixture as a prime opportunity to pick up points and steer clear of the drop.
We say: Charlton Athletic 0-1 Luton Town
Luton have won their last two games by a 1-0 scoreline and could do the same again against a patchy Charlton side to make it three on the bounce and close the gap between the pair.
Leeds vs. Reading (Saturday, 3pm)
Leeds United will be looking to make it back-to-back Championship victories when they welcome Reading to Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.
We say: Leeds 2-0 Reading
Reading have a number of injury problems heading into the match, but Leeds are in fairly good shape at the moment. The Whites have been much better in their last two fixtures after a tough period, and we expect them to pick up another three important points on Saturday afternoon.
Nottm Forest vs. QPR (Saturday, 3pm)
Promotion-chasing Nottingham Forest host Queens Park Rangers as they look to keep the pressure on the Championship's top two and maintain their playoff spot for another week.
Forest entertain a QPR side 11 points clear of both the relegation zone and the top six as they head for a comfortable, mid-table finish this season.
We say: Nottingham Forest 2-1 Queens Park Rangers
With neither side in flying form this could be a close encounter, with a solid defence tested by one of the league's most potent attacks. However, the promotion-chasing side should just get the job done at home.
Preston vs. Hull (Saturday, 3pm)
Alex Neil's side are currently sixth in the Championship table with 53 points, while an out-of-form Hull occupy 17th position, 10 points clear of the relegation zone with 13 games left.
We say: Preston 2-1 Hull
Hull's injury problems are starting to ease at a key stage of the season, but it is a big ask to expect the Tigers to upset Preston at Deepdale. We are expecting a tight match in terms of the scoreline but fancy the home side to pick up three important points.
Stoke vs. Cardiff (Saturday, 3pm)
The Potters have seen early strong form under Michael O'Neill abandon them in recent weeks, while Cardiff have moved to within three points of the playoff places.
We say: Stoke City 2-1 Cardiff City
Stoke have seen their form dip in recent weeks, but they remain a force at the bet365 Stadium under O'Neill. Cardiff have been in good form of late, but Stoke could sneak a valuable win in their fight against relegation.
Swansea vs. Huddersfield (Saturday, 3pm)
Swansea have take three points from their last five league matches, while the Terriers are only five points clear of the relegation places.
We say: Swansea 1-2 Huddersfield
Both sides have been struggling for form of late, but Huddersfield seem to be on an upward curve with performances improving. A late comeback for a point last time out will have boosted confidence, so expect them to just edge this one.
Wigan vs. Millwall (Saturday, 3pm)
Millwall, on the other hand, still have a chance of making the playoffs, with Gary Rowett's team four points adrift of the top six.
We say: Wigan 1-2 Millwall
With Millwall still very much in the playoff hunt, expect them to overcome a relegation-threatened Wigan side. Wigan have struggled for home wins all season and that run should continue on Saturday.
