West Brom vs Hull City

Jordan Hugill, West Brom, Championship

Hull City have scored just one goal in their last four league games, losing all four and were it not for an impending takeover, manager Grant McCann would surely be out on his ear by now.

It's a far cry from the opening day of the campaign when they thrashed Preston 4-1 at Deepdale, with the Tigers having only won one game since and drawn a blank in ten of their subsequent 14 games.

In fact, last season's League One champions have won only three of their last 35 Championship games spanning two seasons.

Oh, and they have failed to score in their last six away games.

As if that wasn't enough to put the Tigers faithful off travelling to The Hawthorns, then the fact hosts West Brom are unbeaten at home, surely is.

Third in the table under Valerien Ismael, the Baggies have won five and drawn two in front of their own fans, scoring 14 goals in the process.

A 3-0 defeat at Fulham last time out will have focused minds and West Brom to win to nil is my confident selection.

Barnsley vs Derby County

Wayne Rooney, Derby County, manager, Championship

Barnsley relieved manager Markus Schopp of his duties on Monday, with his assistant, Joseph Laumann, taking over on a temporary basis.

Last season's play-off semi-finalists are on a run of seven straight league defeats and have won just one of their opening 15 games.

Only Derby County's 12-point deduction has kept them off the bottom of the table and it is the Rams who provide the opposition on Wednesday evening.

Wayne Rooney's threadbare side started the season in impressive form, fuelled by a sense of injustice, but four draws and a defeat from their last five have stalled their progress somewhat.

Nevertheless, safety is only seven points away and they know this is a game they must take something from.

But with a reaction expected from Barnsley, another draw is the best they can hope for.

Blackburn Rovers vs Fulham

Harrison Reed, Fulham, Championship, celebration

Both sides go into this one in a confident mood. Blackburn made it two wins on the bounce with victory over Derby County on Saturday, while Fulham beat promotion rivals West Brom 3-0 to make it four wins from four.

Tony Mowbray's team have struggled for consistency recently, but have found the net in six of their last seven Championship matches. Ben Brereton Diaz has been a revelation since his call up to the Chile national side and the Stoke-born striker is in the midst of his most productive season, with 12 goals in 15 league games.

Fulham too have a striker who is on fire, in the shape of Aleksander Mitrovic. The Serbia international has bagged a staggering 18 goals in 15 Championship games, including a hat-trick in the win over West Brom.

These two teams have 61 goals between them this season and there should be more goals in this one, with BTTS the pick.

Blackpool vs Stoke City

Blackpool, Championship, celebration vs Reading

Blackpool sit third in the form chart on the back of four wins and a draw from their last six and will be relishing the visit of an out-of-sorts Stoke.

The Seasiders came away with a 1-0 win from Sheffield United last weekend courtesy of a wonderful solo goal from Keshi Anderson but have found goals hard to find at home, notching just six in seven.

Nevertheless, it has been enough to net them four wins.

Stoke City visit Bloomfield Road after letting a 3-0 lead slip to draw 3-3 with managerless Cardiff City in their last outing and memories of their fine start to the season are beginning to fade.

The visitors have taken just a point from their last four games and will have doubled down on their defensive structure following Saturday's collapse.

And, with just 13 goals having been scored in Blackpool's seven home games this season, under 2.5 goals looks the way to go.

Bournemouth vs Preston North End

Dominic Solanke, Bournemouth, Championship

Scott Parker's Bournemouth sit five points clear at the top of the table and are yet to taste defeat in the Championship this season.

Nine wins from their last ten has fired them to the top of the table, with Dominic Solanke having scored 11.

However, it is their defensive solidity which has provided the platform, with Republic of Ireland keeper Mark Travers having kept eight clean sheets in 14 appearances behind a defence led by England international Gary Cahill and skipper Lloyd Kelly.

Preston ended Luton's unbeaten home record at the weekend, and have an in-form striker of their own in Emil Riis Jakobsen.

The Dane notched three goals in 39 appearances for Preston last season, but already has 11 in 19 appearances in all competitions this time around. That included both goals in their 2-0 victory over Luton Town, which moved them nine points clear of the relegation zone.

However, it is hard to look past a home win in this one.

Cardiff City vs Queens Park Rangers

Keiffer Moore, Cardiff City, Championship

Prior to Saturday's comeback draw against Stoke City, managerless Cardiff had lost eight matches on the bounce - a run that cost Mick McCarthy his job.

In contrast, Mark Warburton's QPR have built on the steady foundations of the past few seasons and seem well set up for a play-off tilt.

A last-minute equaliser denied them a win against Nottingham Forest in their last match and although their form has been patchy - two wins, two losses and a draw in their last five - their performances have been better than their results suggest.

Cardiff City showed tremendous courage under caretaker boss Steve Morison to take a point at Stoke, having been 3-0 down.

They will be keen to extend their 'new (caretaker) manager bounce' at home to QPR whose form away from Loftus Road is nothing to write home about.

The respective league positions of the two sides cannot be discounted, though, and while City will be buoyed, their defensive frailties remain. Both teams to score is the call.
