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

Blackburn missed a big opportunity at the weekend to really nail down their top-two credentials, but fell to a frustrating defeat at Swansea.

Nottingham Forest enjoyed another fantastic FA Cup day against Leicester. If they can take that performance and build on it, then anything is possible, starting with a win at Ewood Park.

Prutton predicts: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds)

It has been a great start to life at Preston for Ryan Lowe, as they enjoyed another battling win at the weekend. It would have been even better had Ben Whiteman converted that penalty at Millwall last week!

Huddersfield are continuing to defy all kinds of expectations, and have made the most of a really good run of fixtures in league and cup. Incredibly, they have not lost a game since the end of November, and I hate predicting an unbeaten run coming to an end. But I just have a nagging feeling Preston are going to edge this at Deepdale.

Prutton predicts: 3-2 (Sky Bet odds)

QPR vs Middlesbrough, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button

What a position QPR find themselves in. They are picking up points at an incredible rate under Mark Warburton, and with games in hand on Blackburn and Bournemouth stuttering a little, you just never know.

This is a tough test. Middlesbrough will be riding high off the back of that win at Manchester United and are charging up the table themselves. With the shape both sides are in, I have to go for a draw.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Sheffield United vs West Brom, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button

Sheffield United's Billy Sharp celebrates scoring their side's first goal of the game during the Sky Bet Championship match at St Andrew's

Three wins on the bounce now for Sheffield United. The managerial switch seems to be working right now and the play-offs are within sight.

West Brom have also made a change. The fans had turned on Valerien Ismael, and when that happens you tend not to last too much longer. Steve Bruce is in, and he is a man who knows how to get out of this league. But with the Blades on such good form, I think he may well start with a defeat.

Prutton predicts: 2-0 (Sky Bet odds)
