The Champions League may take centre stage this evening but the domestic action continues apace, with no fewer than seven Championship matches taking place.
We’ve sought out tips for all of them below.
Aston Villa v Preston North End
Goals are usually on the agenda when Preston are involved. Unfortunately for North End fans, their team is usually on the wrong end of the scoreline.
Brentford v Birmingham City
Birmingham are developing a habit of taking points from promotion contenders. Sheffield United, Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion have all come away frustrated against the Blues so far.
Hull City v Leeds United
Meetings between these two at the KCOM Stadium tend to be tight. Four of the last five on Humberside have ended in a draw. Leeds are a different proposition this season, though.
Ipswich Town v Middlesbrough
One win in 14 home league matches doesn’t make pretty reading for Ipswich fans. Their task tonight is made all the more difficult with a visit from the Championship’s most miserly defence.
Wigan Athletic v Swansea City
Of the 20 matches involving Wigan or Swansea this season, only seven have seen both teams find the back of the net. Both Teams to Score – No, is 19/20 this evening.
Indeed, these two sides are pretty evenly matched. They’re separated by a single place in the table and locked on the same number of points. We go 23/10 about that continuing with a draw.
Reading v Queens Park Rangers
Steve Coppell was still the Reading manager the last time this fixture produced more than two goals at the Madejski Stadium. That was in 2006. Under 2.5 Goals tonight is 3/4.
The Royals have at least started scoring more consistently this season – Jon Dadi Bodvarsson has netted in each of his last three appearances. He’s 14/5 to Score in a Reading Win tonight.
Stoke City v Bolton Wanderers
Bolton’s record of one win in 48 away matches in the Championship prior to this season has been firmly put to rest. The Trotters have lost just once on the road this term, winning twice.
They’re 11/2 for another three points against a Stoke side shipping goals at a rate of knots. Gary Rowett’s men have leaked eight goals in their last three matches. Both Teams to Score tonight is 21/20.
