Former player turned Sky Sports pundit and presenter David Prutton has thrown together his usual Championship prediction piece for the weekend and has had his say on the entire league. There is plenty to still decide in the Championship in regards to the promotion battle, race for the top six and the fight for survival. Seven matches remain as we get into the business end of the season and it’s looking more and more like a two-horse race for second, with first-place Norwich City seven points clear of third and fourth-place West Bromwich Albion six points back. The good news for Leeds’ fans is that Prutton is predicting the club to pick up a pivotal 2-1 victory at Birmingham City. But to counter that, he is backing Sheffield United to pull off a 3-2 win at Preston North End to remain two points adrift. Norwich, meanwhile, are predicted to hammer Queens Park Rangers 3-0 and retain their five-point lead over Leeds at the top. After this weekend, Prutton is predicting West … [Read more...] about Leeds and Hull City set for boosts according to pundit’s predictions

Hull City have gone 10 games and over two months since last suffering defeat in the Championship and they will head to Ewood Park knowing another win would take them to within three points of the play-offs. Philip Buckingham’s prediction: City can enjoy another productive road trip against a play-off rival Nothing quite underlines Hull City’s transformation this season more than their improved fortunes on the road. From late August through to October, the Tigers did not find a point outside of East Yorkshire. Five away games ended in five defeats and only once – in a 2-1 loss at Wigan – did City even find the net. Then it all changed. A gutsy 1-0 win at Bolton on October 27 was the moment a pulse was found in this season and City have not looked back since on their travels. Last weekend’s 2-2 draw at Aston Villa made it 15 points from the last seven away games and ensures Nigel Adkins’ side head to Ewood Park with confidence well and truly … [Read more...] about Blackburn vs Hull City: score prediction, team news, key battle and betting
