Brentford travel to Birmingham City with both sides in good form, but the Bees have more to play for with promotion in their sights. Brentford are just two points adrift of the automatic promotion spots as the race for promotion hots up. Brentford have won the most games in the Championship this season with 16 wins and their record away from home against sides in the bottom half of the table is encouraging with five wins from seven. Birmingham have won their last three games in the Championship to move 11 points clear of the relegation zone, but they lost all of their meetings with the top three teams in the table so far. Brentford, who have scored nine goals in their last three away games, should have too much quality for Birmingham in the final third to ensure they take all three points and keep their promotion bid on track.
Cardiff have found a bit of form as they prepare to welcome struggling Wigan to the Welsh capital on Saturday. Neil Harris’ side have won three of their last four games to move within four points of the play-off places. Wigan remain in the relegation zone, four points adrift of safety and their away form has been a major problem again for the Latics. Wigan have lost 10 of their 16 away games so far this season and they have won only three of their last 37 away trips. Cardiff have only lost once at home all season and considering Wigan’s way form that makes them a popular pick for this acca.
Derby play host to relegation-threatened Huddersfield on Saturday looking to maintain their good run of form at home. The Rams have won their last five at Pride Park and boast the second best home record in the Championship. Derby went down 3-2 to Bristol City in midweek and Phillip Cocu will be expecting a response from his side against struggling Huddersfield. Huddersfield slumped to a disappointing 3-0 home defeat to Cardiff last time out and they are languishing five points just above the drop zone. The Terriers have lost four of their last five away games and a trip to a Wayne Rooney-inspired Derby is probably the last thing Danny Cowley wanted. Derby have won eight of nine home meetings with bottom-half sides so far this season and I expect them to continue that trend against a mis-firing Huddersfield side.
Portsmouth saw their winning run come to an end against promotion rivals Coventry in midweek, but they can bounce back against an out-of-sorts Shrewsbury Town this weekend. Pompey are five points adrift of the automatic promotion places, but they have games in hand over their rivals in the battle to go up. Kenny Jackett’s men have made Fratton Park a fortress as they are unbeaten on home soil this season and they have won six of their last seven games at home. Shrewsbury are suffering something of an FA Cup hangover from their two games against Liverpool having failed to win any of their last five League One games, including three defeats. Portsmouth need to go another winning spell if they are to achieve their ambitions of promotion and I expect them to have little trouble seeing off Shrewsbury.
League Two leaders Swindon will be aiming to cement their place at the top of the table when they take on managerless Scunthorpe this weekend. Swindon have won three of their last five games to sit two points clear at the summit of League Two. The Robins have been consistent all season under Richie Wellens and they are on a 10-game unbeaten run at the County Ground. Scunthorpe have had a season to forget having sacked manager Paul Hurst last month and they are languishing in 18th spot in the table. Scunthorpe have picked up just one win from their last eight games and they have lost 15 games this season. The Iron have also conceded 50 goals so far this season and their defence could be rich pickings for a free-scoring Swindon side who boast the formidable forward line of Eoin Doyle and Jerry Yates.
