FST Predicts: 2-0 Manchester City
Manchester City look favourites to extend their winning run over a Burnley team they’ve toppled in each of the clubs’ last six meetings, though a glut of goals at the Etihad Stadium feels unlikely.
The uncharacteristically flat Citizens are averaging just over a goal a game in the league this term, and they should find breaking down a Burnley defence strengthened by the reunion of James Tarkowski and Ben Mee a tricky task.
FST Predicts: 3-0 Norwich City
Table-topping Norwich took maximum points in each of their last three Championship assignments, and the Canaries – who are looking strong at both ends of the pitch – kept clean sheets in three of their last four.
Fourth from bottom Coventry have shown some improvement of late, though the Sky Blues are still short of goal-scoring power, and they could struggle against Norwich’s mix of confidence and ex-Premier League quality.
FST Predicts: 3-1 Watford
Frustrated by back-to-back draws on the road at QPR and Bristol City, the Hornets will hope to rediscover their sting when they return to Vicarage Road to face Preston North End on Saturday.
Watford hit the net three times in three of their last four Championship tests there, and they should be able to match that output against an out of sorts North End team that were beaten in four of their last six contests.
FST Predicts: 3-1 Bournemouth
A surge of three wins on the spin has left spirits at Bournemouth high, and the Cherries in second are hot on the heels of Norwich City at the summit of the Championship table.
Bournemouth averaged 3.0 goals per game across their last trio of fixtures, and Jason Tindall’s charges should have too much firepower for a Rotherham outfit that shipped three goals at QPR last time out.
FST Predicts: 0-0 Draw
Middlesbrough take their remarkably mean defence to the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday to play Huddersfield Town in what already looks a potentially drab game in West Yorkshire.
Boro kept clean sheets in five of their last six Championship matches, though two of the more recent four of those tussles were limp 0-0 stalemates. Town also drew 0-0 in their last skirmish at Wycombe, so don’t expect fireworks in this one.
FST Predicts: 2-0 Stoke City
Sheffield Wednesday manager Tony Pulis will be desperate to get one over his former employers this weekend, though the evidence suggests Stoke could leave their old boss disappointed at Hillsborough.
Armed with a run of three wins from five, the Potters are growing in confidence, and they gave league leaders Norwich a real run for their money last week. The Owls meanwhile, are without a win in three and they should find the going tough again against a Stoke team that notched at least two goals in each of their last four Championship fixtures.
