Who is David Prutton’s mid-week tip for winning the Sky Bet Championship? Find out here …

Huddersfield vs Blackburn, Tuesday 7.45pm – Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button

Huddersfield have only hit the buffers a little since their great start to the season, losing three of their last four games. You’re going to want to reverse this trend pretty quickly to keep the positivity high.

Speaking of positivity: Blackburn enjoyed a wonderful win on Saturday and is on a really good run at the moment. Ben Brereton Diaz was a wonderful story this year and looks like a different player this season. I will support him to fire Rovers to another victory.

Prutton predicts: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds)

Middlesbrough vs Sheffield United Tuesday 7.45pm – Live on Sky Sports Football

It wasn’t the Middlesbrough we were expecting this season. Fans are starting to attack Neil Warnock and with the squad they have they should be in a better position. They barely disrupted a Reading defense on Saturday, which had been one of the most leaky in the division.

Sheffield United’s rise to the table continued with a struggling late win over Derby on Saturday. It’s all turned in favor of Slavisa Jokanovic and his squad and you feel like they’re only going in one direction now. Another win for the blades here.

Prutton predicts: 0-1 (Sky Bet odds)

QPR vs Birmingham, Tuesday 7.45pm – Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button

QPR was so good in large parts against West Brom on Friday night, but in the end the performances mean nothing if they don’t return points and the fact is they have lost three in spinning at the moment.

Birmingham are also not in top form at the moment, despite a goalless draw against Preston on Saturday. They’ll try as always, but they might just fall short in West London.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Barnsley vs Nottingham Forest, Wednesday 7.45pm – Live at Sky Sports Arena

Valerien Ismael has always been a tough number at Barnsley and considering the players who left the club in the summer, it could be a difficult season for Markus Schopp.

Steve Cooper’s reign at Nottingham Forest started in a draw on Saturday and a win here could potentially get them out of the bottom three, which would be a massive boost. I would like them to take an important win.

Prutton predicts: 0-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Fulham vs Swansea, Wednesday 7.45pm – Live on Sky Sports Football

Fulham have given in just a little in terms of results in recent games, looking a little less than the sum of its parts at times. It just proves how tough this league is, considering there was talk early on that they might have run away with it.

Swansea returned to winning ways on Saturday with a narrow win over Huddersfield. It will certainly have done Russell Martin well in a season of consolidation, but I think Fulham will have too much at Craven Cottage.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Peterborough vs Bournemouth, Wednesday 7.45pm – Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button

They worry about Peterborough just because of the amount of goals they lose. 20 in nine games are relegation issues at any level, and Darren Ferguson needs to find a way to keep them toned behind.

It’s not a good time to play against what is currently the best team in the championship. Bournemouth is great, still unbeaten and has the quality to stay there. Three points about the cherries for me.

Prutton predicts: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds)
