It was honours even between the top two last Friday night as Fulham and Bournemouth played out an entertaining stalemate in West London.

That result handed West Brom a window to pull themselves back into automatic contention – one they took away at Coventry City. Will the 2021/22 EFL Championship promotion race tighten further this weekend?

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


EFL Championship Predictions | Weekend Games

Marco Silva and Scott Parker would have probably settled for a point prior to both their promotion chasers facing off, but last weekend’s draw has helped make the race for Premier League football at least a little more interesting.

Fulham and Bournemouth have both now picked up just three points from a possible nine, a return that should give their play-off rivals a flicker of hope of closing the gap during the relentless festive period.

It’s the Cottagers that still top the Championship outright betting at 61/100 but the Championship leaders face a challenging weekend assignment at unpredictable Luton Town.

The Hatters ended their recent four-game winless streak with an emphatic 3-0 win at Blackpool to keep themselves safety tucked in mid-table.

Could Blackburn Rovers still have their say in the automatic promotion fight?

Tony Mowbray’s side are currently the form team of the division after four wins in their last five games and could have the potent striker to pull off a key win at Bournemouth in Ben Brereton Diaz.

The 22-year-old is continuing to enjoy the best form of his career in the wake of his Copa America adventure earlier this summer, notching his 17th goal of the season against Rovers’ north-west rivals Preston last week.

What reception will Steve Cooper get as he steps out at the Liberty Stadium?

The former Swans boss returns to South Wales on Saturday for the first time since his departure.

He’ll be looking to continue his bright start with Nottingham Forest as the Tricky Trees bid to continue a run that seen them lose just one of their last 14 league games. 

In the battle for the play-offs, Middlesbrough might well be worth keeping an eye on as they travel to fellow play-off chasers Stoke.

Ready for another round of EFL Championship action?

Chris Wilder continued his encouraging start with Boro as his new charges carved out a disciplined 1-0 win over Swansea last Saturday, a result that moved them to within five points of the play-offs.

That’s also the deficit that improving Sheffield Utd need to make up to force themselves into the equation for the top six.

The Blades round off the latest gameweek on Monday night at home to a QPR side that missed their chance to close the gap on the top two with defeat at home to Stoke last Sunday.

At the bottom of the table, there’s a danger the relegation battle could be comfortably sorted before next spring with the bottom three all cut adrift.

While marooned Derby County have a points deduction to thank for their all-but-guaranteed trip into League One, a chronic lack of confidence looks likely to send Barnsley and Peterborough Utd hurtling back into the third tier. 

The Tykes are still chasing their first win under Poya Asbaghi as they travel to a Preston side also embarking on a new era under Ryan Lowe, while disheartened Posh fans will simply be happy to see a goal from their side at London Road.

It’s now five games since Darren Ferguson last troubled an opposition defence.

Stubborn Millwall may well be confident of making it a half-dozen as they travel to Cambridgeshire.

Better Odds Mean Bigger Winnings.
