West Brom vs QPR, Friday 8pm – Live on Sky Sports Football

West Brom have slowed down a bit in the past few weeks with three straight draws and just three goals in their last four games. They are still creating opportunities, but they haven’t taken advantage of them. But Valerien Ismael will be confident that the goals will come back if they continue to penetrate the right areas.

QPR have suffered consecutive defeats in the championship, but the way they played against Everton in the Carabao Cup mid-week showed that they still genuinely believe in what they are doing. I would like to see goals and a draw here.

Prutton predicts: 2-2 (Sky Bet odds)

Friday, September 24th, 7:30 p.m.

Kick-off at 8:00 p.m.

Reading vs Middlesbrough, Saturday 12:30 p.m. – Live on Sky Sports Football

After some brilliant results, especially the Fulham win last week, Reading was on the upswing but since then problems outside of the field have come to the fore to dampen the mood at the club, which is such a shame.

Middlesbrough haven’t started this season as many would have expected and they will face them on Saturday in more ways than one. I want to see the Royals win.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Saturday, September 25th, 12:00 p.m.

Kick-off at 12:30 p.m.

Bournemouth vs Luton, 3pm Saturday

Dominic Solanke scored his fifth goal in as many games as Bournemouth defeated QPR in Vitality

Bournemouth is now ticking very well under Scott Parker! Still undefeated, they are now at the forefront with West Brom and Fulham in terms of the teams that are expected to fight for the top two.

Luton had a week to ponder how they threw away the three-goal lead against Swansea and this is one of the worst places they could have chosen to recover. Home win for me.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Bristol City vs. Fulham, Saturday 3pm

Bristol City just can’t win at home but they are getting some good results outside of Ashton Gate and it’s been a pretty positive start to the season for Nigel Pearson.

Fulham have lost two of the last three and would have been really disappointed with how they were beaten by Reading last week. This league is so unpredictable and this could be the game City finally wins back at home.

Prutton predicts: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds)

Sheffield United vs Derby, Saturday 3pm

Sheffield United can’t stop scoring now. Their concerns at the start of the season appear to be well behind them when Slavisa Jokanovic’s plan gets underway.

Derby got a brilliant win against Stoke against all odds last week and they have to show a similar resilience to claim anything from Bramall Lane. I think they will and could definitely score a point.

Prutton predicts: 2-2 (Sky Bet odds)

Stoke vs Hull, 3pm Saturday

It’s only every fourth win for Stoke now, although they still stay in the top six of the championship before the weekend. This is the kind of game that you have to win if you want to stay there.

Hull finally scored another goal last Saturday but it turned out to be a consolation goal against Sheffield United. Grant McCann has problems to deal with if they are to stay away from the bottom three, but I can’t imagine they’re getting anything here.

Prutton predicts: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds)
