Who is David Prutton tipping for victory in the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday? Find out here…
Brentford vs Birmingham, Tuesday 7pm
Similarly to Swansea, Brentford are stuttering at just the wrong moment, which is allowing Watford to get very comfortable in the second automatic promotion place behind Norwich. With three draws in succession, they’ve really lacked a cutting edge of late.
Having beaten the Swans and boosted their hopes of avoiding the drop just a few days ago, Birmingham will be quietly confident about beating another promotion hopeful here, with Lee Bowyer’s appointment having breathed new life into the squad. That said, I think the Bees could get back on track here.
Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)
Norwich vs Huddersfield, Tuesday 7.45pm – Live on Sky Sports Football
Though they still boast a healthy lead over Watford going into this game, you’d imagine Daniel Farke and Co will be starting to look over their shoulders, having dropped points in the last two games. They will have designs on another title win and the Hornets are their closest realistic challengers.
Huddersfield are five unbeaten now and managed to keep Brentford’s talisman Ivan Toney quiet at the John Smith’s Stadium last time out. I’m not sure they’ll be able to do the same with Teemu Pukki and Emi Buendia, though, and this should be a comfortable victory.
Prutton predicts: 3-1 (Sky Bet odds)
