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

That Chris Mepham equaliser for Bournemouth against Watford was as dramatic as they come! The Wales defender preserved one of only two unbeaten records in the Championship and kept the Cherries within touching distance of the summit.

It has not been plain sailing for Dean Holden's Bristol City since the international break and improvement is needed quickly if they want to keep up the pace. I will definitely be keeping an eye on this game, which I think Bournemouth will just about edge.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Derby vs Cardiff, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button

The pressure remains on Derby boss Phillip Cocu at the moment but things just are not going his way at the moment. The Rams have missed the presence of Wayne Rooney in the last two games and Cocu said his side were "robbed" after Kamil Jozwiak's goal was disallowed in the 1-1 East Midlands derby draw with Nottingham Forest.

Cardiff squeezed past Preston on October 17, but other than that, they have really struggled to convert wins into draws of late, leaving them languishing in the bottom half of the table. I am going for a draw, though it would not really help either.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Luton vs Nottingham Forest, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Football

Lyle Taylor equalised for Nottingham Forest

I am still impressed by the way in which Nathan Jones has transformed Luton from a side who looked doomed to relegation last term into one that is sitting comfortably in mid-table in the space of just a few months.

Chris Hughton has enjoyed an unbeaten start to life as Forest boss and though the project remains in its infancy, he has got them gradually climbing back up the table, which will relieve fans after those four straight wins at the start. Score draw.

Prutton predicts: 2-2 (Sky Bet odds)
