The Gurgler’s Own Goal – Championship Preview Edition

With League One and Two in FA Cup mode – and you can read about our big preview here – The Championship gets it’s own weekend preview.

And here it is…

HIGHLIGHTS
DERBY COUNTY v NOTTINGHAM FOREST – FRI 19:45 UK – BE IN SPORTS
A Big Midlands derby that gets about a feisty as a Football League clash gets between two sides not of the same city. Derby with the upper hand at home and better form.

HULL v MIDDLESBROUGH – SAT 15:00 UK
1st v 4th and Hull will be keen to keep the top spot for another week and beyond after nabbing it for the first time this season.

BOLTON v BRISTOL CITY – SAT 15:00 UK
A similarly tight clash but at the other end of the table with third last Bolton v 4th last Bristol City. Hard to think Bolton manager Neil Lennon was beating Barcelona in the Champions League not too long ago.

BEST BETS
IPSWICH to beat Rotherham
HULL to beat Middlesbrough
BRIGHTON to beat Milton Keynes
BRENTFORD to beat Blackburn
LEEDS to beat Huddersfield
