Championship Round-Up: 09/02/2019

Middlesbrough vs Leeds United

One game that should provide plenty of entertainment this weekend will be held at Riverside Stadium, as Leeds United take on Middlesbrough. The hosts have been in good form across their league fixtures with them going five games unbeaten, but they were left shocked on Tuesday when they suffered a 2-0 defeat to Newport County in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup. Leeds have been flying high for the majority of the season, but this has not been the case for them recently with them picking up four losses in their last six games. If you fancy Middlesbrough to add to Leeds’ misery then they can be backed with SkyBet at 17/10, while Leeds sit at 8/5 with Bet365.

Swansea City vs Millwall

Swansea City will be hoping they can add a simple three points to their total this weekend when they go up against Millwall at Liberty Stadium. The Swans sit in 13th and are in danger of dropping further down the table with multiple sides below them warranting a game in hand. Following their recent 2-0 loss to Bristol City, Swansea have now gone two matches without a win and will be keen not to let it extend to three games.  Millwall are having a tough season and are trying their best to steer clear of the relegation zone which they currently sit five points clear of. The Lions are in some of their best form currently which has seen them suffer just one loss in their last eight. The hosts have been priced at 21/20 with SkyBet and Millwall sit at 11/4 with Betway.

The New York Stadium will be home to sides in the league looking to steer clear of the relegation zone as Rotherham United and Wigan Athletic meet for matchday 31. The Millers sit just one point clear of the bottom three and two places behind their opponents but are separated by a huge six points which Paul Warne will be keen to close. United head into this fixture off the back of a 0-0 draw with Millwall. The Latics picked up their second win in four games against QPR last weekend and look in good shape to see of Rotherham on Saturday. Bet365 is offering odds of 19/10 for the hosts to win and 7/5 for their opponents.

QPR vs Birmingham City

QPR return to Loftus Road this Saturday where they welcome Birmingham City in an attempt to put their poor league form to an end. Rangers had been in great form to climb the table from their horrific start, but they have fallen back into a poor run of form which has seen them lose their previous three league games. However, they did manage to beat Portsmouth 2-0 in their FA Cup replay. Birmingham sits up in eighth and arrives in a better run of form which has seen them go unbeaten in their last two after recently beating Nottingham Forest 2-0. The first time these sides met this season it ended in a 0-0 stalemate. SkyBet has QPR priced at 7/5 to secure the three points, while their opponents sit at 21/10 with Bet365.

The hosts sit down in 23rd after 30 games which they have taken just 23 points from. Sheffield United where their latest opponents and they dealt them their 17th loss of the season which marked their sixth game they have gone without a win. Alex Neil’s men sit just five places above their opponents but will be expecting a simple three points as they arrive in good form with them undefeated in their last four. Bolton can be backed with Betway for a price of 10/3, whereas Preston sits at a more modest 10/11 with Bet365.

Derby County vs Hull City

Derby County will have a tough game on their hands at Pride Park this weekend where they will go up against Hull City. When these sides met at the KCOM Stadium, Derby took the three points with a narrow 2-1 victory. The Rams inconsistent performances continue to be a problem for Frank Lampard, as in their previous game against Preston they were outclassed and were lucky to leave with a point.  The Tigers sit just three places below their opponents separated by just four points making this a good opportunity to move within a point of Derby. Hull have lost just one of their last twelve league games following their recent 2-0 win over Stoke City. SkyBet has Derby to win at evens and Hull at 13/5.

Blackburn Rovers vs Bristol City

Blackburn Rovers will have a tough time leaving Goodison Park with anything to show for their efforts this Saturday as they go up against an impressive Bristol City side. Rovers put up little resistance when these sides first met as Bristol eased to a 4-1 victory. Blackburn arrives in fairly good form which has seen them win three of their last four league games, however, their latest game saw them suffer a shock 5-2 defeat to Brentford. Bristol have been on an incredible run of form over the last couple months which has seen them go 13 games unbeaten and have secured nine wins along the way. Rovers have been priced at 17/20 with Betway to win and Bristol sit at 7/4 with Bet365.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Reading

Steve Bruce’s Sheffield Wednesday look to extend Reading’s misery this weekend when they meet at the Hillsborough Stadium. The Owls have been far from their best this season and their efforts have earned them a spot down in 16th, but they arrive at this fixture off the back of two consecutive wins in the league against Wigan and Ipswich. The Royals have given their supporters little to cheer about this season and are in danger of facing relegation. They currently sit down in 22nd but managed to pick up a point in their previous match against Aston Villa. Betway has Wednesday priced at 21/20 to secure the three points while Reading sit at 13/5 with SkyBet.

Nottingham Forest vs Brentford

Brentford will be aiming to extend their impressive run this weekend at City Ground where they go up against Nottingham Forest. The hosts find themselves in 12th place and have been slipping down the table with each passing week as they find themselves in a run of poor form. Forest had been pushing for a top six finish but with just two wins in their last ten, a top six looks unlikely. Forest went up against Birmingham in their latest fixture and lost 2-0. The Bees have been battling it out down the wrong end of the table for the majority of the season, but have been slowly climbing up due to an improvement in their form. Following their recent 5-2 win over Blackburn Rovers, Brentford are now unbeaten in their last ten. SkyBet is offering odds of 19/10 and Betway has their opponents priced at 7/5.

Stoke City vs West Brom

The final Championship game taking place this Saturday will be held at the Bet365 Stadium as West Brom take on Stoke City. The Potters find themselves down in 15th place as they head into their 31st match of the season and with just one win in their last seven, are in need of three points. After losing to Hull City 2-0, Stoke have now lost back-to-back games in the league. The Baggies sit up in fourth place and are in a good position to make a push for an automatic promotion spot, as there are just seven points separating them from the top two. West Brom narrowly lost out to Middlesbrough 3-2 in their latest fixture. Bet365 has the hosts priced at 6/4 and Betway has West Brom sitting at 9/5.
