Luton vs Norwich, Wednesday 7.45pm

Luton appear to have dropped some of their early-season momentum and ended a run of three straight 1-1 draws with a thumping 4-0 defeat at the hands of Cardiff on Saturday. Nathan Jones will be itching to set the record straight this week.

The Norwich promotion chain is showing no signs of slowing down, however. They were denied a fourth straight win by Max Biamou's late equaliser for Coventry last time out, yet there's a comfortable cushion between themselves and the teams outside the top six. I wouldn't think another draw will do them too much harm.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Nottingham Forest vs Watford, Wednesday 7.45pm

For all the riches Chris Hughton has in attack, Forest simply haven't been able to score of late. They've lost three on the trot now and are hovering dangerously above the drop zone, which was unthinkable given their lofty position last term.

They face a Watford team who have scored 11 in their last five on their way to establishing themselves among the early contenders for automatic promotion back to the Premier League, as expected. I'm going for an away win.

Prutton predicts: 0-1 (Sky Bet odds)

There's still a long way to go before Wednesday are in the clear but Tony Pulis has solidified their backline since his appointment and secured impressive draws against Swansea and Stoke in the last two games, which are not to be sniffed at.

Reading have responded to their mini blip admirably and looked back to their predatory best when they beat Bristol City 3-1 at the Madejski Stadium last weekend. I just think that Wednesday defence will be tough for them to navigate successfully.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)
