There’s no sign of the revolving door being fixed any time soon at the City Ground.

Chris Hughton secured the unwanted honour of being the first manager to lose his job in the 2021/22 EFL Championship this season, with former Swansea boss Steve Cooper widely tipped to take over in the East Midlands.

Can caretaker boss Steven Reid galvanise the Tricky Trees as they head to Huddersfield?

We’re back with another set of Championship predictions….


EFL Championship Predictions | Weekend Games

Fulham failed to illuminate in Blackpool last weekend but quickly brushed off that minor blip to return to the top of the table in midweek.

A thumping 4-1 victory at in-form Birmingham ensures Marco Silva’s bid to guide the Cottagers back to the Premier League at the first time of asking remains firmly on track, and the league’s top scorers should add to their 17-goal tally against a Reading side yet to keep a clean sheet.

That result saw them leapfrog West Brom to take top spot, with the Baggies’ momentum blunted after two lacklustre home draws for Valérien Ismaël’s side in the last week.

A hat-trick of draws could be a distinct possibility as they travel to a Preston team also churning out stalemates of late following their late fightback against Sheffield Utd.

At 39/5, Bournemouth are ones to watch in the current Championship outright betting with Scott Parker’s side now one of only two teams in the division yet to taste defeat after ending QPR’s own unbeaten start in a tight battle at the Vitality on Tuesday.

Coventry City will surely win the award for biggest improvers so far in 2021/22 having brought their fine form from the back end of last season into this campaign.

Viktor Gyökeres continued his recent purple patch with his fourth goal of the season in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Cardiff and the Sky Blues could close up on the top two with a win at the Den against a Millwall side in middling form.

Things are already starting to look bleak for Peterborough at the other end of the table.

The Posh could already be doomed to a return journey to League One after having their early-season confidence sapped by four defeats on the spin, with the latest perhaps the most damaging.

A 3-1 defeat to fellow strugglers Reading could leave them vulnerable to a Birmingham backlash as the Blues look to shake off their midweek defeat to Fulham.

It’s not looking much better for the two other clubs promoted from the third tier.

Hull City hit the dizzy heights of top spot on the first day of the season with a 4-1 win at Preston, but it’s been downhill all the way since for Grant McCann’s side.

The Tigers will be looking for their first win in seven games as they look to overhaul Sheffield Utd in a fascinating Saturday early-kick off, while Blackpool boss Neil Crichley will be banking on an instant response from his charges.

After their shock success over Fulham last Saturday, it was back to square one for the Seasiders against much-improved Huddersfield on Tuesday night as they slipped to a 3-0 home defeat. A tricky trip to Middlesbrough awaits the Lancastrians this Saturday.

Better Odds Mean Bigger Winnings.
