Ian Holloway's predictions: Honours even for Newcastle and Brighton
Last Updated: 27/08/16 3:06pm
Sky Sports pundit Ian Holloway is back to give us his views on the Sky Bet EFL action.
After Burton beat Derby 1-0 on Friday night, there is one more Sky Bet Championship game live on Sky Sports this weekend, while two of Sky Bet League One's big boys do battle at The Valley and Ollie's old sides meet in Sky Bet League Two.
Here are his tips for this weekend's games...
Newcastle v Brighton - Sky Bet Championship, Saturday, live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 5.15pm
What a fantastic game this is going to be and I've got the pleasure of watching it in the studio. It's Chris Hughton going back to Newcastle and Rafa Benitez is just starting to get them ticking over. It's difficult to separate them.
Birmingham v Norwich - Sky Bet Championship, Saturday, 3pm
It was a difficult week for Birmingham losing to Wolves last Saturday and now one of the best sides in the division are coming to them. I think it will be too tough for them and Norwich will take the win at St Andrew's.
Blackburn v Fulham - Sky Bet Championship, Saturday, 3pm
I think Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic is absolutely fantastic. He keeps selling their best players but he's got them really well organised and they are all enjoying what they are doing. I think they will have too much for Blackburn.
Blackburn have had a terrible, terrible start. Their defence is completely all over the place at the moment and they are letting in goals willy nilly. They need to sort that out and I think Fulham will be too strong for them on the day.
Bristol City v Aston Villa - Sky Bet Championship, Saturday, 3pm
What a game, I would love to go to this one! The whole town is buzzing. Rovers are buzzing, City are buzzing with their new stadium and the giants of Aston Villa are coming down.
Bristol City faced Newcastle last week and only lost 1-0 so I think they could get a draw this time.
Huddersfield v Wolves - Sky Bet Championship, Saturday, 3pm
Wow, both have started brilliantly. I have to give this one to Huddersfield. Obviously Wolves can do what they like but they sacked my mate Kenny Jackett which always sticks in my craw a little bit. I don't know much about Walter Zenga but I felt like Kenny was hard done by.
Nottingham Forest v Leeds - Sky Bet Championship, Saturday, 3pm
What a fantastic game that is. Leeds got their first win last weekend and Nottingham Forest are high scoring. Their manager was a little bit upset that they were letting too many goals in so it should be a good game.
Wigan v QPR - Sky Bet Championship, Saturday, 3pm
Both sides have had a good start to the season, but I can just see Queens Park Rangers edging it on their travels to the DW Stadium. Away win.
Charlton v Bolton - Sky Bet League One, Saturday, 3pm
They are two big sides in that division. Bolton are still top and I think it will be a very good match. I can't separate them.
I think the Charlton crowd have settled down a little bit with wanting their owners out which never really helps. Bolton have got a new manager in charge and new owners so I think they will steadily chip away at that division. They are both too big for the division and they should be up there challenging for promotion by the end of it.
Blackpool v Plymouth - Sky Bet League Two, Saturday, 3pm
They are two of my old clubs. Plymouth have had a bit of a dodgy start compared to what they were probably expecting. Blackpool is a tough place to go and my heart is still there.
