Listen to Prutton’s Predictions!

David Prutton joins Sky Sports Simeon Gholam to discuss all of his Championship predictions ahead of Gameweek 35. You can listen below, as Prutton reveals who he’s backing this weekend. To avoid spoilers, press play before scrolling down!

Blackburn vs QPR, Saturday 12.30pm – Live on Sky Sports Football

Five games without a win now for Blackburn, and five games without a goal. To play against 10 men and have a penalty like they did at Sheffield United on Wednesday night and manage to lose the game late shows how things have just turned against them at the moment.

QPR returned to winning ways with a scruffy late win over Blackpool in midweek. Sometimes you need these types of results to get you back on track and Mark Warburton hopes they will start from here. I will back Blackburn to get back in the goals, but it won’t be enough to give them the win.

Prutton predicts: 2-2 (Sky Bet odds)

Saturday February 26 12:00 p.m.


Kick off 12:30 p.m.


Barnsley v Middlesbrough, Saturday 3pm

Two wins out of three for Barnsley! They’re starting to look like themselves again, but it remains to be seen if it’s too little, too late this season.

Middlesbrough picked up a big midweek win over West Brom to stay within touching distance of the top six. Despite Barnsley’s recent mini resurgence, I think Boro will still be too strong.

Prutton predicts: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds)

Coventry v Preston, Saturday 3pm

Coventry appear to be past their wobble and are back on the march. They have two very late wins in a row, which shows the determination they have in the team.

It’s been a mixed bag for Preston lately. Losing at home to Reading was a real blow, while drawing with Nottingham Forest was a decent result. They’ve been better on the road lately, but I think they could be beaten here.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Nottingham Forest v Bristol City, Saturday 3pm

Two draws on the rebound could have stopped Nottingham Forest’s charge towards the play-offs a bit. They have work to do to close that gap.

Bristol City are inconsistent, which is why they are where they are. They have goals in them, but Forest have such a tight defense under Steve Cooper. Small victory at home.

Prutton predicts: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds)

Peterborough v Hull, Saturday 3pm

Hull City manager Grant McCann on the touchline during the Sky Bet Championship match at the MKM Stadium, Kingston upon Hull.  Picture date: Sunday January 16, 2022.

Sometimes the stars line up in this league, right? Just over a month after being sacked by Hull City despite having them on a fine run, Grant McCann will take charge of the opener of his second stint in charge at Peterborough against his former side.

He has to get to work if he’s going to have any chance of keeping the Posh in place. And he’d like to start that by getting one over Hull, who haven’t won in six since Shota Arveladze was victorious on his debut. I want McCann to start with a much-needed victory for the Posh.

Prutton predicts: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds)

West Brom vs Swansea, Monday 8pm – Live Sky Sports Football

What a mess does West Brom find himself in. They finally scored under Steve Bruce in midweek but even then they squandered the lead to lose to Middlesbrough. It’s already starting to look like the play-offs might be beyond them.

Swansea have been given a bit of a break after having their midweek game canceled and will be craving their chances against a confidence-lacking Baggies side. I think they will get at least one draw.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Monday, February 28, 7:30 p.m.


Kick off 8:00 p.m.
