Championship tips for weekend games
The Championship campaign continues into its matchweek 22 this weekend and there are a host of intriguing match-ups from Friday night until Sunday evening.
This will include league leaders and title favourites Newcastle United, who come up against Burton Albion after their midweek win over Wigan Athletic, while there are plenty of live fixtures taking place.
So, ahead of the latest set of second tier clashes, Coral outline Championship tips for weekend games for punters to enjoy throughout the action!
Huddersfield to topple Norwich
We begin with the Friday night meeting between Norwich City and Huddersfield Town, with this encounter seeing ninth against fourth respectively.
The visitors have not toppled their opponents since 2001 domestically but have been in superb form of late and will enter proceedings on the back of two straights wins, including an away victory over Burton. So backing them to prevail on their travels at 3/1 could prove prosperous.
Newcastle to beat Burton to nil
Rafael Benitez’s Magpies overcame Wigan 2-0, with this following up a comfortable 4-0 triumph over Birmingham City, and they will be confident of a third successive win against Burton this time out.
With the Toon having won back-to-back games without conceding, they have showcased strength both going forward and at the back. Therefore, they are a promising 8/5 to win to nil for a third game in a row.
Brighton to sink Birmingham and both score
Saturday evening’s live kick-off sees eighth placed Birmingham City and second positioned Brighton and Hove Albion square off at St Andrew’s.
The away side have been on a supreme run of 15 Championship outings unbeaten since September, with this including an impressive 11 victories. Chris Hughton’s men are therefore a tasty 4/1 to earn three points with both sides scoring.
QPR and Aston Villa to draw
Over to Sunday’s only second tier fixture next, as QPR and Aston Villa battle for a crucial three points in order to push them further up the league standings.
Although, in what could be a close contest at Loftus Road, a draw can be backed at 11/5 to occur. Such a result looks promising, with a stalemate having happened in at least one fixture for the last three consecutive seasons in which they have met.
