Bournemouth vs Sheffield United

The Cherries dropped to second in the Championship after a disappointing 0-0 draw at Peterborough last time out but find themselves in a real bounce-back spot at home to a Sheffield United side that has won just once away from home this season.

Scott Parker's side are one of only two unbeaten teams in the Championship and have won their last three at the Vitality Stadium, scoring an average of over two goals a game.

Dominic Solanke is also in red-hot form, netting five times in his last four home games and the Blades will do well to keep the former Liverpool man quiet.

The visitors lost 2-0 at Middlesbrough in midweek and off the back of a long trip to the south coast it's hard to see them improving on that here, with Bournemouth a standout price to get back to winning ways.

Birmingham City vs Nottingham Forest

Lewis Grabban celebration Nottingham Forest Sep21

Not that it could have got any worse, but Steve Cooper has made a good start to life as the Forest boss, drawing at home to Millwall last weekend and then winning at Barnsley in midweek.

Forest climbed out of the relegation zone off the back of those results and will certainly be looking up the table ahead of a visit to a Birmingham side heading in the opposite direction after three losses and a draw in their last four league matches.

Lee Bowyer's side have won just one of their five home games in the Championship this season, while Forest are unbeaten in their last three away from the City Ground, winning two and drawing one.

The bookies are still unconvinced by Forest's revival, pricing Birmingham up as 23/20 favourites, but we can't resist over double the odds on the away win here.

Blackpool vs Blackburn

We're expecting a high-octane affair in a local derby at Bloomfield Road, with both sides in good form heading into this match.

The hosts have won three and drawn one of their last five games, a run which included an eye-catching victory over Fulham and a hard-fought win at Middlesbrough, and we're expecting them to raise their game once again against high-flying Blackburn.

Rovers have lost just one of their last six matches and in Ben Brereton Diaz they have one of the league's top scorers, with nine goals from 10 games - as many as the entire Blackpool side!

Blackburn have netted 18 times in 10 league matches this season, including seven in their last two games, but a 3-2 defeat at Huddersfield last time out is a worrying sign ahead of this encounter.

And in a game that should be far closer than both sides' league positions imply, we reckon the Lancashire rivals will cancel each other out, so the draw's our pick here.

QPR vs Preston

A 2-0 win at home to Birmingham in midweek was a welcome boost for Rangers after three straight league losses, but they will need to be on their game once again against a Preston side unbeaten in their last seven Championship matches.

However, five of those results were draws and while Frankie McAvoy's men are proving to be difficult to beat, North End have also lacked a killer instinct in recent weeks that might have turned some of those draws into victories.

Preston are without an away win all season and against a QPR side who are the third-highest scorers in the division we're expecting their unbeaten run to come to an end in west London.

Luton vs Huddersfield Town

Lutomn Town Harry Cornick vs Coventry City 5-0 Sep21

Even the sharpest of punters didn't see Luton's 5-0 demolition of Coventry coming on Wednesday and the question is whether the Hatters can take that momentum into their home game against Huddersfield.

The Terriers were among the goals themselves last time out in a 3-2 home win over Blackburn, a victory which lifted them to seventh in the Championship table.

Only four teams in the division have secured more points than Huddersfield away from home and Carlos Corberan's men have scored in all but one of their league matches away from the McAlpine Stadium.

And with Luton having scored nine in their last three games, we reckon both teams to score is a great shout here.

Derby vs Swansea

Derby County Wayne Rooney Reading Sep21

Derby's win over Reading in midweek was even more of a cause for celebration because it lifted them into the black for the first time since their 12-point deduction.

And while an updated total of one point from 10 games won't exactly have them dancing in the aisles of Pride Park, Wayne Rooney's men will be feeling a whole lot better ahead of their clash with Reading.

Even with that punishment the Rams are only seven points from safety, thanks to two wins, a draw and just one loss in their last four matches.

Derby are also unbeaten in five league matches at Pride Park this season and welcome a Swansea side who have lost three out of their last five matches away from the Liberty Stadium.

We don't know whether Derby's upturn in form is being fuelled by a sense of injustice or a siege mentality, or a combination of the two, but whatever it is we're expecting the Rams' form to continue against the inconsistent Swans, with the home win our pick here.
