Millwall vs Swansea, Saturday 12.30pm – Live on Sky Sports Football

Millwall are ticking along very nicely with three wins on the bounce. They may have left it a little too late to get into the play-offs, but they are clearly still highly motivated as the season draws to a close. Gary Rowett and his players deserve huge credit for that.

It is all going wrong for Swansea. Four defeats in a row without scoring, and they need to make sure they keep themselves honest in this pursuit of a play-off place. I fancy them to get back amongst the goals, but think it could well be a fifth defeat in a row.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Saturday 10th April 12:00pm

Kick off 12:30pm

Barnsley vs Middlesbrough, Saturday 3pm

Two more goals for Daryl Dike on Monday, even with the penalty miss he has been a sensational acquisition for Barnsley, helping blaze their trail into the play-offs.

Middlesbrough got a good point against Watford on Monday, but look likely to fall short of the play-offs. Neil Warnock will still have them right up for every game and the Tykes need to be wary of that, but for me, this is still a home win.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Bournemouth vs Coventry, Saturday 3pm

Bournemouth are just on the outer edge of the top six. The play-offs were a minimum expectation for them this season and it’s essential they force their way into those positions.

Coventry, meanwhile, just want to keep their Championship status intact and got a great win against Bristol City on Monday. I think this could be quite a tight affair, but Coventry are so poor on the road that I have to go with the Cherries to prevail.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Huddersfield vs Rotherham, Saturday 3pm

Carlos Corberan has a real job on his hands to lift his side after that hammering at Norwich in midweek, because this is a big game for Huddersfield if they don’t want to get dragged back in.

Rotherham have games in hand in their favour as we all know, but this is the start of a really tough week, and they need to start picking up some points. I think, however, we’ll see a response from the Terriers.

Prutton predicts: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds)

QPR vs Sheffield Wednesday, Saturday 3pm – Live on Sky Sports Football

These are two teams that just sum up how tough it is to predict the Championship. QPR had been great recently but were so poor against Nottingham Forest on Friday, and then there was Sheffield Wednesday’s ridiculous win against Cardiff.

Every game is a must-win for Wednesday now if they want to stay up, but QPR will be playing with the freedom of a mid-table side. With that in mind, I’ll go for a draw.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)
