Prutton's Predictions

Who is David Prutton tipping for victory in the Sky Bet Championship in the midweek round of fixtures? Find out here...

Barnsley vs Nottingham Forest, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Arena

Valerien Ismael was always going to be a tough act to follow at Barnsley, and when you take into account the players that departed the club in the summer, you felt it could be a difficult season for Markus Schopp.

Steve Cooper's reign at Nottingham Forest began with a draw on Saturday, and a victory here could potentially lift them out of the bottom three, which would be a massive boost. I fancy them to claim an important win.

Prutton predicts: 0-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Here is how you can watch midweek Championship matches across Sky Sports this season.

Fulham vs Swansea, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Football

Fulham have just slipped a little in recent games in terms of results, and have at times looked a little less than the sum of their parts. It just proves how tough this league is, considering there was early talk of how they may well have run away with it.

Swansea got back to winning ways on Saturday with a narrow victory over Huddersfield. It will have done Russell Martin the world of good in what is surely a season of consolidation for them, but I think Fulham will have too much at Craven Cottage.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Peterborough vs Bournemouth, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button

You worry for Peterborough, just because of the amount of goals they are leaking. 20 in nine games is relegation stuff at any level, and Darren Ferguson has to find a way to tighten them up at the back.

It's not a good time to come up against what is currently the best side in the Championship. Bournemouth are top, still unbeaten, and have the quality to stay there. Three points to the Cherries for me.

Prutton predicts: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds)
