David Prutton’s Championship score predictions

David Prutton’s Championship score predictions have been revealed this week, and he’s got plenty to say on each of the fixtures.

The former Nottingham Forest, Southampton, Leeds, Swindon, Sheffield Wednesday, and England U21 footballer who currently works as a presenter, pundit, and commentator has given his thoughts on the outcome of all twelve Championship matches.

After looking at the majority of his predictions, it’s found that last season he was mostly accurate and that if you put the scores he’s gone with into a table, it is was similar to the Championship table. See what he scores he went with below…

Millwall vs QPR

Gary Rowett’s side had a reasonably good start and found themselves among the play-off places in October, only to gradually drop into mid-table after a strange November when they drew all five league games. They need to find their killer instinct.

I can’t fault Millwall’s defensive record – bettered by only four teams in the division – but I just sense Rangers will want to avenge the previous three defeats, having taken the lead in two of them.

Millwall: 14th – played 16 – won 4 – drew 8 – lost 4 – 20 points
QPR: 18th – played 16 – won 4 – drew 5 – lost 7 – 17 points

Prutton predicts: 1-3

Stoke vs Cardiff

After two mediocre campaigns, Stoke are finally reaching the levels they expected to when they were relegated from the Premier League. The Potters have won three of their last five and have kept three successive clean sheets, which is even more impressive given 20-year-old goalkeeper Josef Bursik only made his debut on November 21.

Neil Harris is, understandably, a happy man at the moment. Last month, he demanded improvement from his squad and they’ve certainly delivered, with wins over Luton, Huddersfield and Watford. This should be a cracker and really could go either way, but I think Stoke will shade it.

Stoke: 5th – played 16 – won 8 – drew 4 – lost 4 – 28 points
Cardiff: 11th – played 16 – won 6 – drew 5 – lost 5 – 23 points

Prutton predicts: 2-1

Swansea vs Bournemouth

I’m impressed with the way Swansea are ticking along at the moment. As I said last week, they don’t have the biggest squad, but they bounced back to the defeat to Middlesbrough with a pretty routine win over Luton, who were in positive spirits after beating Norwich in front of a crowd at Kenilworth Road.

Jason Tindall wanted a response from his side after their surprise defeat to Preston last week and he got that with a 4-0 win away at Barnsley, though the game itself wasn’t quite as one-sided as the result suggested. I’ll go for a high-scoring draw.

Swansea: 4th – played 16 – won 8 – drew 5 – lost 3 – 29 points
Bournemouth: 2nd – played 16 – won 8 – drew 6 – lost 2 – 30 points

Prutton predicts: 2-2

Brentford vs Derby

It’s nine games without defeat for Thomas Frank’s men going into Wednesday’s game but they probably should’ve picked up a fourth straight win on Saturday, when they conceded late on to draw with Blackburn.

Things are finally heading in the right direction for Derby, too. They’ve taken five points from a possible nine since Wayne Rooney took over on an interim basis and the win over Millwall was their first in over two months. This test might come a little too soon for them, however.

Brentford: 14th – played 16 – won 7 – drew 6 – lost 3 – 27 points
Derby: 23rd – played 16 – won 2 – drew 5 – lost 9 – 11 points

Prutton predicts: 2-1

Bristol City vs Blackburn

It is so tight in the top half of the Championship at the moment and a sequence of wins could propel any one of 10 or so teams to within reach of the automatic promotion places. Bristol City are one of those teams but the fact their winning streaks have preceded a disappointing run of results has let them down somewhat so far.

As was the case last season, Blackburn are on a quiet climb towards the play-off places. Their attacking options make them prime candidates to get there, particularly if they can keep Adam Armstrong injury-free. Away win here, for me.

Bristol City: 14th – played 16 – won 8 – drew 3 – lost 5 – 27 points
Blackburn: 2nd – played 16 – won 7 – drew 4 – lost 5 – 25 points

Prutton predicts: 0-2

Norwich vs Nottingham Forest

Norwich surprised a few when they were held by Coventry and then well beaten by Luton at Kenilworth Road but they got back to winning ways with a hard-fought win over Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend and their title push is back on track.

Since the end of the November international break, things just haven’t been clicking for Forest. The defeat to Reading made it five games without a goal and left them hovering above the relegation zone they could soon find themselves in. This should be a pretty routine win for Norwich.

Norwich: 1st – played 16 – won 9 – drew 4 – lost 3 – 31 points
Nott’m Forest: 21st – played 16 – won 3 – drew 4 – lost 9 – 13 points

Prutton predicts: 2-0
