Prutton's EFL predictions: Easter Monday tips
Last Updated: 17/04/17 4:51pm
David Prutton returns with his latest round of predictions ahead of Easter Monday in the Sky Bet EFL.
But who is Prutton tipping for glory in the three games live on Sky Sports? Read on to find out...
Fulham v Aston Villa, Easter Monday 2.45pm, Sky Sports 1
Fulham have got the bit between their teeth and, given the quick turnaround Villa have, it's hard to see past the hosts on Easter Monday. Fulham, going head-to-head with Sheffield Wednesday for the fourth and final play-off spot, have been decent at Craven Cottage for most of this season and I fancy them against a Villa side who only have pride to play for.
PRUTTON PREDICTS: 2-1
Derby v Huddersfield, Easter Monday 5pm, Sky Sports 1
The Gary Rowett version of Derby is a very interesting proposition, they offer a bit more bite. Huddersfield were impressive against Norwich but that has proven to be one-off in what has otherwise been a poor run for the Terriers. This is one of the trickier fixtures of the Easter period and I cannot separate these two teams.
PRUTTON PREDICTS: 2-2
Sheffield United v Bradford, League One, Easter Monday 12.15pm, Sky Sports 1
Sheffield United have been wonderful, and what better way to round off their fine campaign than with victory in this Yorkshire derby. Having been crowned champions on Saturday, their fans will be in good spirits at Bramall Lane.
Bradford, meanwhile, are still in the mix for the play-offs and victory could help their cause in terms of semi-final draws. But I see the Blades picking up another victory.
PRUTTON PREDICTS: 2-0
