Birmingham vs Fulham, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button

Troy Deeney made his Birmingham debut in the Blues' 2-0 win over Derby

Birmingham's win at Derby on Friday night wasn't the most convincing, but they were clinical and picked up three points that leave them on the cusp of the top six, which is a great platform for Lee Bowyer to build upon.

I'll hold my hands up and say I did not expect Fulham to lose at Blackpool on Saturday. They had such an electric start, but just came unstuck at Bloomfield Road. I think they could well stutter in this one, too.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Stoke vs Barnsley, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Football

The last few seasons have been tough for Stoke, but they are finally breaking free of the clutches of mid-table and laying the foundations for a promotion push, it seems. Michael O'Neill's men are joint-second lowest scorers in the top 10, which they will no doubt be hoping to improve on, but they have won three of their last four games and are ticking along nicely.

Barnsley, however, are stuttering at the moment and have won just one of their last six games in all competitions. The Tykes can't seem to settle into a rhythm, and for that reason, I'm backing a home win here.

Prutton predicts: 2-0 (Sky Bet odds)

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

It's an understatement to say things aren't going to plan for Forest at the moment. They are still rooted to the base of the table, with just a point to their name, and the pressure is growing on Chris Hughton by the day. That first win of the season has not been forthcoming.

Though not quite as gloomy, there's a similar situation at Middlesbrough. With the calibre of players they brought in this summer, expectations were high and you'd imagine Neil Warnock will be disappointed with what he has seen so far. I think they may just take the points here, but not by much.

Prutton predicts: 0-1 (Sky Bet odds)
