David Prutton's Sky Bet EFL predictions

Millwall vs Middlesbrough, Wednesday 3pm

Neil Warnock took over as Middlesbrough manager last month

That was a vital late win for Millwall at Charlton on Friday night. It just keeps them within touching distance of the play-offs, but they will probably still need to be perfect between now and the end of the season to have a chance of making it.

It's not quite going the way many would have been expecting for Neil Warnock at Middlesbrough. He started with a win, but has lost two eminently-winnable games since and they have found themselves back in the bottom three. I think they could lose again here, and it will leave them in real trouble.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (17/2 with Sky Bet)

West Brom vs Derby, Wednesday 5pm - Live on Sky Sports Football

It's been a brilliant response to the pressure from Brentford by West Brom, who have won their last two to keep that five-point cushion. They are still firm favourites for automatic promotion and a win here would go a long, long way to securing their return to the Premier League.

Derby were a little disappointing in terms of their performance against Nottingham Forest at the weekend and their winning run is over. But the way they grabbed that last-minute point still would have been huge for morale. It will be tight, but I think the Baggies sneak this one.

Prutton predicts: 1-0 (7/1 with Sky Bet)

Leeds vs Stoke, Thursday 5pm - Live on Sky Sports Football

Blackburn away is one of the games that the sides chasing Leeds would have hoped to see them slip up in, but it was a convincing win for Marcelo Bielsa's side, taking them one step closer to promotion.

Stoke have had a topsy-turvy week. They were awful against Wigan, then brilliant in beating Barnsley. If Michael O'Neill's side from the weekend turns up they could cause Leeds some real problems, although I think the home side will have enough to claim the victory.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
