Championship tips: Wins for Forest and Rotherham?
After a barnstorming night of Championship football yesterday, there should be more of the same with another five fixtures this evening.
Two of the top four are in action, with West Bromwich Albion heading to Sheffield Wednesday, while Sheffield United visit Blackburn Rovers.
In fact the league is so close right now, that eight of tonight’s ten sides have a chance to be in the play-offs by the end of the evening. So let’s get stuck into it…
Sheffield Wednesday v West Bromwich Albion
Tonight’s televised game on Sky Sports, West Brom are starting to find their groove now.
The Baggies have won six of their last eight league games, including each of their last three.
Hosts Wednesday have lost only one of their last seven, however, and only one of ten at Hillsborough.
Dwight Gayle has scored three goals in three games, and is 4/1 to net first.
Blackburn Rovers v Sheffield United
From Yorkshire to Lancashire, as Blackburn welcome Sheffield United to Ewood Park. Rovers sit 14th, but have only lost once this term, while the Blades go into this game in fourth place after an excellent start to the season.
Derby County v Norwich City
Norwich have won four on the spin, but they’ve only claimed two victories in their last 15 away games in the league. That’s up against Derby’s home form, which has seen them beaten only eight times in their previous 47 at Pride Park, and that might be the difference.
Nottingham Forest v Millwall
Having guided Middlesbrough to promotion in 2016, Aitor Karanka is looking to do the same with Nottingham Forest.
So far the Spaniard is doing pretty well. Forest have lost only once so far, and sit just two points off fifth place.
They’re odds-on at 20/23 to win at home to a Millwall side who are winless in seven. There’s 13/4 about Neil Harris’ men bagging only a second league win of the campaign, while 12/5 says it ends all-square at the City Ground.
Rotherham United v Bristol City
Rotherham are 5/2 outsiders to beat Bristol City tonight, but they’ve every reason to be confident.
The hosts have collected all of their 10 points this season on home soil. They’ve already beaten Derby and drawn with Stoke City.
