Our Championship Tips for the Weekend - 14/08/21

Peterborough vs Derby: Kazim-Richards to score and Derby to win

It may be a little unfair to call the lunchtime game on week two of the Championship season a six-pointer, but given how many expected the campaign to go for these two sides, both Peterborough United and Derby County will be desperate for the win.

The Posh suffered a rude awakening to life back in the second tier, losing their first fixture 3-0 away to Luton Town, whilst Wayne Rooney’s men threw away a precious lead to draw 1-1 against Huddersfield Town.

Derby may be tipped for relegation, but the strength in their squad should still be enough to see off Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough and it could prove the perfect match for the Rams to kick start their season.

Colin Kazim-Richards will no doubt be their biggest threat in front of goal, with the 34-year-old to score anytime and Derby to win a generous 4/1.

Huddersfield vs Fulham: Fulham to win to nil

Joint favourites to win the 2021/22 Championship title, Fulham missed an enormous chance to start their campaign with a win, conceding a late equaliser to Middlesbrough in their opening fixture.

Widely expected to dominate proceedings this year, Marco Silva’s men will be looking for their first victory of the campaign when they travel to Huddersfield this weekend and history suggests they’ll come away from the John Smith's Stadium with all three points.

Fulham have lost just one of their last 15 matches against the Yorkshire club, with Saturday’s encounter likely to be no different. Having come from behind to take a point against a crisis-ridden Derby side on matchday one, Carlos Corberán’s Huddersfield side may have to wait yet another week before picking their first win of the season.

With goals in attack, creativity in midfield and stability at the back, Fulham have the tools to hurt most teams in the division and they’re 2/1 to beat Huddersfield without conceding.

Swansea vs Sheffield: Swansea to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1

Another of the relegated Premier League sides tipped to impress this season, Sheffield United suffered a shock 1-0 defeat at home to Birmingham City in their first match of the season and could be without their number one goalkeeper by the time they travel to South Wales.

Aaron Ramsdale is tipped to swap South Yorkshire for North London, with Arsenal interested in the England U21 goalkeeper and his departure could cause problems for an already leaky Blades’ defence.Swansea City on the other hand are looking to build on last season’s play-off final defeat, with Steve Cooper’s side an outside bet for promotion this year. The Swans have had the better over Sheffield United in recent years, winning their last three meetings, whilst conceding just one goal.

Capable of extending their strong form against last season’s bottom-placed Premier League side, Swansea are a healthy 3/1 to beat Sheffield United 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1.

West Brom vs Luton: West Brom to win and BTTS

Firing out of the blocks with an opening day victory over Peterborough, Luton Town got off to a perfect start without former striker, James Collins, scoring three and conceding none against the Championship newbies.Facing a difficult trip away to relegated West Bromwich Albion in their second match of the season, Nathan Jones’ men will be looking to replicate their form in front of goal and will likely have chances against an often overexposed Baggies side.No side conceded more goals than West Brom in the Premier League last season, with Valérien Ismaël’s new side falling behind twice in their opening match against Bournemouth. Expect an open and frantic affair when the two meet at the Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon.Likely to have too much for Luton, despite their defensive fragilities, West Brom are priced at 3/1 to win the match with BTTS.

Millwall vs Blackburn: Ben Brereton Diaz to score anytime

A South American sensation over the summer, Ben Breton Diaz starred for Chile as they reached the Copa America quarter-finals and the Stoke-on-Trent born superstar has started the campaign in fine form.

Netting the second of two Blackburn Rovers goals as they took three points against Swansea in the opening game of the season, Brereton Diaz needed no time at all to fill the vacancy left behind by last year’s golden boot winner, Adam Armstrong.

Likely to be the focal point of a Rovers side pushing for promotion, the 22-year-old has every chance of bettering his seven league goals last time out and he could double his tally for the season this weekend.Blackburn are the pre-game favourites to beat Millwall at the Den, with Diaz priced at 5/2 to grab a goal anytime.
