David Prutton returns with his Sky Bet EFL predictions ahead of the midweek fixtures, but who is he tipping for victory?
Stoke vs Derby, Wednesday - Live on Sky Sports Football from 7pm
This is a big game for Gary Rowett, as he faces the side he left in the summer for the Potteries. He clearly thought he would have a better chance of promotion with Stoke but it hasn't quite worked out that way so far.
Frank Lampard would have had a long time to dwell on that defeat to Aston Villa, so full credit to Derby for bouncing back with a victory right after the international break. I fancy them to have too much energy for Stoke.
Prutton predicts: 0-2 (14/1 with Sky Bet)
Aston Villa vs Nottingham Forest, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports red button
What a game on Sunday and what a massive win that was for Aston Villa against their biggest rivals! It's three on the spin for Dean Smith's side now and they are starting to look like a real threat to the top six.
For all Nottingham Forest's big signings in the summer, it is Lewis Grabban and Joe Lolley who are their standout performers so far. Grabban would love to score on his return to Villa Park and it will be hard to keep him at bay. Score draw for me.
Prutton predicts: 2-2 (14/1 with Sky Bet)
Ipswich vs Bristol City, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports red button
It was always going to be a tough ask for Ipswich to beat West Brom on Friday, but this is a big opportunity for Paul Lambert to claim his first win against a hopelessly out-of-form Bristol City.
Lee Johnson has been here before. They have lost four in a row now and have really slumped away from the top six. I think this is the day Ipswich get their first home win of the season.
Prutton predicts: 1-0 (8/1 with Sky Bet)
