Hull vs. Swansea (Friday, 7.45pm)
We say: Hull City 1-2 Swansea City
Hull continue to slide down the table as they struggle for results, and it is difficult to back the hosts with any real confidence here. Swansea are also without a win in their last four in the Championship, but we fancy Cooper's side to pick up an important three points in this match.
West Brom vs. Nottingham Forest (Saturday, 12.30pm)
We say: West Brom 2-1 Nottingham Forest
This is a difficult one to call for obvious reasons, but West Brom will enter the match off the back of three straight league victories while Forest have lost two of their last three. It is set to be a tight game at the Hawthorns, but we are backing the home side to record a narrow victory.
Birmingham vs. Brentford (Saturday, 3pm)
Meanwhile, Blues head into the contest in the West Midlands having recorded three successive wins, a run which has moved Pep Clotet's side clear of a relegation battle.
We say: Birmingham City 1-2 Brentford
While Birmingham are the form team heading into this game, we cannot back against Brentford, who have shown numerous times this season that they respond well to disappointing results. However, the Bees will have to play to their best to out-work their hosts.
Cardiff vs. Wigan (Saturday, 3pm)
As for Wigan, they travel to South Wales sitting four points adrift of safety, despite recording seven points from their last four outings.
We say: Cardiff City 2-1 Wigan Athletic
With the stakes rising for Cardiff, this game may turn into a difficult encounter for the Bluebirds. However, with Wigan having improved of late, there will be no complacency, and it could help the home side grind out a narrow success.
Charlton vs. Blackburn (Saturday, 3pm)
Meanwhile, Blackburn make the long trip to London having won three of their last five outings at the second tier, keeping the club in the hunt for a playoff spot.
We say: Charlton Athletic 1-1 Blackburn Rovers
Both of these teams will fancy their chances of victory at the weekend. However, with each club having impressed of late, we feel that they could cancel each other out, something which would benefit Charlton more than the visitors.
Derby vs. Huddersfield (Saturday, 3pm)
The Rams are 10 points off the playoff places and 13 clear of the dropzone, while the 20th-placed Terriers are only five points ahead of 22nd-placed Wigan Athletic.
We say: Derby County 2-1 Huddersfield Town
Both sides have exhibited patchy form of late and, while Huddersfield are certainly a better side than they were at the start of the campaign, Derby's home record is difficult to ignore.
Fulham vs. Barnsley (Saturday, 3pm)
Barnsley are in a dire run of form and the London outfit will be hoping for three points to keep the pressure on second-placed Leeds United, who are ahead on goal difference alone.
We say: Fulham 2-0 Barnsley
Fulham are in fine form and have plenty of motivation as they close in on the automatic promotion places. With their strong home record - and Barnsley's dismal away record - as an additional boost, this should be a routine win over the team at the bottom of the table.
Leeds vs. Bristol City (Saturday, 3pm)
Leeds United will be looking for just their second Championship win of 2020 when they welcome Bristol City to Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.
Marcelo Bielsa's side remain second in the table despite a poor run of form, while Bristol City are just outside the playoffs in seventh having won five of their last six in England's second tier.
We say: Leeds 1-1 Bristol City
Leeds are certainly due a win, but it is difficult to back them with any real confidence this weekend when considering Bristol City's form. The visitors have so much quality in the final third, and we fancy Johnson's side to pick up a share of the spoils at Elland Road.
Middlesbrough vs. Luton (Saturday, 3pm)
The newly-promoted side are 23rd in the Championship table and are seven points from safety, but Boro must guard against complacency if they are to avoid dropping points in a winnable fixture.
We say: Middlesbrough 1-0 Luton Town
Neither side is in particularly strong form and, despite Luton's morale-boosting win against Sheffield Wednesday, Middlesbrough could put an end to their winless run with a narrow win on home soil.
Preston vs. Millwall (Saturday, 3pm)
Alex Neil's side are currently in sixth place but are only ahead of Bristol City on goal difference, and a further seven points clear of Gary Rowett's Millwall.
We say: Preston North End 2-1 Millwall
Preston are one of the form sides in the Championship and the division's best home side, so they should have enough against Millwall. With the playoffs in the sights of Neil's team, they should not slip up in this one.
QPR vs. Stoke (Saturday, 3pm)
We say: QPR 1-1 Stoke City
Stoke have made an impressive recovery under O'Neill but that progress has been stunted in recent weeks with a few poor results. QPR have also been in poor form, so expect this to be a tight affair with neither side able to find the upper hand.
Sheffield Wednesday vs. Reading (Saturday, 3pm)
We say: Sheffield Wednesday 0-0 Reading
In a battle between two sides struggling for form in the Championship, there is little to choose between them. Sheffield Wednesday are higher in the league but given their form, a draw is the most likely result.body check tags ::
