Who is David Prutton who’ll tip over to win the Sky Bet Championship midweek? Find out here …

Cardiff v Derby, Tuesday 7pm – Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button

Cardiff’s winning run ended over the weekend but a draw at Middlesbrough will never be a decent result so it shouldn’t hold up their momentum too much.

Derby will be happy to be late against Nottingham Forest. You now have a wide arch between you and the bottom three, but you can’t relax just yet. This should be a close game but I think Cardiff will have the quality to improve on it.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Huddersfield v Birmingham, Tuesday 7pm – Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button

Huddersfield might start to worry a little. That win against Swansea a few weeks ago looks more like a slip-up than the start of a recovery for Carlos Corberan and his squad.

This is a huge game. Birmingham got a huge win over the weekend to move a little away from the bottom three. Both sides will be desperate for a win to breathe, but I think the Blues will be more confident now and could well sneak the win.

Prutton predicts: 0-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Reading vs Blackburn, Tuesday at 8 p.m. – Live on Sky Sports Football

With the teams lining up outside the top 6, it was important for Reading to get back on the winning road on Saturday. The best two may be a bit beyond them now, but making the play-offs would still be a fantastic season.

This is a must for them against a team in any form. Blackburn may have drew over the weekend but they are on a really bad run and are drifting down the table. I can only really see a home win here.

Prutton predicts: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds)

Norwich v Brentford Wednesday 5:30 p.m. – Live on Sky Sports Action

Five straight wins for Norwich. They are seven points behind Brentford and ten points behind Watford in third place. If they win this, they really have a big foot back in the Premier League.

Brentford’s slump is over after two wins. However, this is a massive test for them. A win would make a real statement for the sides below them, while a defeat would leave the door wide open. There will be so much quality of attack but I just have to go with the Canaries.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Sheffield Wednesday v Rotherham, Wednesday 7.45pm – Live on Sky Sports Action

Sheffield Wednesday reacted quickly to topple Darren Moore when they decided that something needed to be done after four straight defeats, particularly with regard to Saturday’s collapse against Luton.

This is a huge, huge game near the bottom. Rotherham is out of shape at all and a draw doesn’t really help either side. It will be nervous, but I think a mix of new manager bounce and quality will make it through Wednesday. Straight.

Prutton predicts: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds)

Stoke vs Swansea, Wednesday at 8:15 p.m. – Live on Sky Sports Football

If Stoke is to have a chance to get back into the top 6, they have to start a winning run soon. They started so well in Brentford on Saturday, but in the end just couldn’t hold up and missed their chances.

Swansea expected to beat Bristol City after the lead and you wonder how that defeat will affect their confidence. They have the character to relax, but Stoke is a difficult place. Draw for me

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)
