David Prutton's Sky Bet Championship Predictions | Football News

Who is David Prutton betting on to win this weekend’s Sky Bet Championship? Find out here…

Birmingham v Huddersfield, Friday at 7:45pm

Birmingham got off to a solid start under John Eustace last weekend, keeping a clean sheet against Luton, one of last season’s play-off semi-finalists. Strikers Troy Deeney and Scott Hogan didn’t score a single shot between them, but that probably shows Luton’s defensive prowess more than anything else at this point.

For Huddersfield it was a difficult return to action. They struggled to muster any real chances worthy of attention, facing a new-looking Burnley side determined to drive their opponents out of the park. They’re still in transition after Carlos Corvelan’s sudden departure, but I doubt they’ll be able to use that as a mitigating factor for long.

Norwich v Wigan, Saturday 12:30pm – Live Stream sky sports soccer

Jamil Collins and Josh Sargent battling for the ball

Norwich manager Dean Smith has lamented the poor quality of his side in the final third following their opener defeat to Cardiff. The Canaries created chances and were forced to take many corner kicks, but were unable to make a breakthrough. In all fairness, they were unknowns with their opponents on so many summer deals.

Wigan have only signed one first-team player this summer and are among the early favorites to return to League One from the Championship. However, they looked real threats in a goalless draw with Preston, racking up 20 attempts without scoring, five of them on target. However, Norwich need to take advantage of this.

Bristol City v Sunderland, Saturday 3pm

There was a terrifying déjà vu last weekend as Bristol City took the lead and lost the match. They did it seven times last season, but Nigel Pearson doesn’t seem like the kind of guy to put up with it for too long.

Sunderland, on the other hand, got off to an almost perfect start!? . Naturally, it will take time to adapt to the split again. For me, each point here.

Burnley v Luton Saturday at 3pm

Vincent Kompani wins first official game for Burnley

We knew Burnley would take a different approach under Vincent Kompagny, but they surprised some with their quick, snappy passing, movement and pressure to win the division’s curtain raiser. rice field. Manchester City legend Kompani said it was a “step in the right direction” and was determined to move forward and build momentum.

Luton have welcomed several new faces to the squad this season, with Nathan Jones having better attacking options at his disposal. The Hatters scored good points in the aforementioned draw with Birmingham, but I’m in favor of Burnley as Turf could be a little more difficult with his Moors.

Sheffield United v Millwall, Saturday 3pm

Watford's Joao Pedro and Sheffield United's John Egan battle for the ball

Sheffield United weren’t eliminated against Watford on Monday, but apart from a few moments it didn’t look like they scored. Young forwards Daniel Jevison and Yiliman Ndiaye have put in impressive performances and we look forward to seeing their progress this season.

Millwall were one of only two teams to score multiple goals throughout the opening weekend, both coming from centre-back Charlie Cresswell. Gary Rowett’s team have been very good from set pieces and are keen to cause problems for other teams in the coming months, which could be a very interesting score his draw.

West Brom vs Watford, Monday at 8pm – Live on Sky Sports Football

John Swift gets congratulations from Jed Wallace after leveling with West Brom

West Brom have had points to prove this season and put in a reassuring performance against Middlesbrough. Newcomers Jed Wallace and John Swift are paired up for The Equalizer and already look like Steve Bruce’s primary performers.

Rob Edwards was another manager who got off to a perfect start last Monday night. Watford’s front line of Emmanuel Dennis, João Pedro and Ismaila Sar have looked terrifying at times against Sheffield United. It looked like, but would definitely do better against the other teams in this division, joining in another compelling score draw at The Hawthorns.
