Luton v Bournemouth: Bournemouth to win and both teams to score

After six games without a win, Scott Parker’s Bournemouth have seemingly found their feet again by winning their last two league games, regaining the lead of the Championship and advancing into the fourth round of the FA Cup with a win over Yeovil Town.

Luton played their first game in almost a month last weekend against Harrogate Town, winning 4-0. It is unknown what condition the Luton players will be in for this game, they could be rested and use it to their advantage, or they could lack cohesion against a top side in the League.

With Bournemouth being a top side in the league, it might be difficult for Luton to return against a side that might be back to their best.

BOURNEMOUTH TO WIN AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE @ 9/2

Derby v Sheff United: Derby County to win from behind

Derby County's recent form has made the impossible look possible, three wins and a draw in their last four games has moved them to eleven points from safety, and only three points from moving off the bottom of the table.

A reason they have been good this season has been their mentality, shown in their last game against Reading. This included two goals in the last five minutes that salvaged a draw for Wayne Rooney’s side.

Sheffield United have been in good form recently, winning their last five games, but they haven’t played in the league since before Christmas, meaning their fitness may cause them struggles later in the game.

DERBY TO WIN FROM BEHIND @ 18/1

West Brom v QPR: QPR to win and under 2.5 goals

West Brom and QPR have been in opposing forms recently; West Brom have two wins in their last 10 games, none in their last four, whilst QPR have won seven of their last 10 games, including their last three.

The Baggies have been involved in a lot of low scoring games, in their last 11 games, only two of their games have gone over 2.5 games. With West Brom really struggling for goals and the London side having momentum coming into this game, it is likely QPR come away with the victory and are able to move above their opponents in the table.

Cardiff v Blackburn: Ben Brereton-Diaz to score first and Blackburn to beat Cardiff 2-0

Blackburn have been the surprise team in the Championship this season, led by their striker Brereton-Diaz.

They have real hopes to get promoted this season and with 20 goals already this season from the Chile international, including a hat-trick when the teams last met in September, it is likely he can continue his great season.

Cardiff have improved under Steve Morrison, but they are still lingering around the relegation zone. They have the worst home record in the Championship this season, and with Blackburn unbeaten in their last nine games, only conceding three times, they are unlikely to get a result again

Forest v Millwall: Grabban to score and Forest to beat Millwall

Nottingham Forest fans will be hoping that their triumph in the FA Cup over Arsenal last weekend is the boost their team needs to try and make the playoffs, with this game against Millwall and a huge game for both teams to get closer to the playoff spots.

In the 18 games Steve Cooper has taken charge of Forest, they have only lost three of them, with Grabban being his main source of goals. He has scored three goals in his last five games, including the winner against Arsenal in the FA Cup, which could give him the confidence he can keep on his form against Millwall.
