Sky Sports pundit David Prutton has given his predictions for some Football League 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 score predictions on EIGHT matches. Four from League One and four from League Two.
After looking at majority of his predictions, it’s found that he’s rather accurate and that if you put the scores he’s gone with into a table, it is very similar to the current standings.
See what he went with below and on the next few pages…
BLACKPOOL v ROTHERHAM
The score David Prutton has predicted for this game is: 2-0
He said on the Sky Sports website: “I saw Blackpool’s trip to Bolton on Monday night and, while it wasn’t the prettiest game, it was another point for Simon Grayson’s side as they continue to climb back up the League One table.
“Rotherham haven’t quite got their consistency back yet since their relegation, although they did get a big win over Coventry last weekend. Home win here for me.”
OXFORD v DONCASTER
The score David Prutton has predicted for this game is: 2-2
He said on the Sky Sports website: “Oxford are on a decent run of form at the minute. They have recovered from a really poor start to the season and are unbeaten in their last five games, scoring 14 goals in that time as well.
“Darren Moore has had a solid start to life at Doncaster. They may be lacking a few goals up front this season but they are 10th in the table and have played fewer games than all the sides above them. I fancy an entertaining draw here.”
PETERBOROUGH v LINCOLN
The score David Prutton has predicted for this game is: 0-2
He said on the Sky Sports website: “Peterborough have a remarkable amount of attacking talent at their disposal. They have scored at least five more goals than any other side in League One and should really be contenders for automatic promotion this season.
“Lincoln got a massive win last weekend, beating Sunderland to get off and running under Michael Appleton and end a really poor run of form. This may come as a bit of a surprise but I have a feeling they could keep the Posh at bay.”
COVENTRY v TRANMERE
The score David Prutton has predicted for this game is: 2-1
He said on the Sky Sports website: “Coventry were unbeaten until they went to Rotherham last week, but that thumping brought them back down to earth a little. They still have a 100 per cent record at home, though.
“Tranmere look in a little bit of trouble. They have just two wins all season and one of those came against a very weak Bolton. Home win for me here.”
