Cardiff v Newcastle
Cardiff are now safe in mid-table and are six games unbeaten at home. Newcastle clinched promotion back to the Premier League with a victory over Preston on Monday night. Brighton need to lose both games for Newcastle to win the League, this could a friendly feel to the game with both teams in on the beach mode. Newcastle way just edge this one.
Barnsley v Burton
Barnsley have struggled of late and are without a win at home in their last 6 games, but they have drawn 5 of them. Burton have now done enough and will be playing Championship football again next season. Burton have been hard to beat of late and think it will be the same again this week. We think this will be a low-scoring affair.
Birmingham v Huddersfield
With Birmingham only two points outside the drop zone, this could be a huge week for Birmingham. A win would keep them up and save the blushes of the Birmingham board. Huddersfield are now getting ready for the playoffs, so will want to go into them with plenty of momentum. Birmingham are without a win at home in their last 6 games, while Huddersfield have only won one of their last 6 away games.
Blackburn v Aston Villa
This is a must win for Blackburn if they are to get out of the bottom three, a defeat and Blackburn could be relegated. They have given themselves a chance as they are unbeaten in their last three games, but we are now at the point of no return for Blackburn. Villa are now building for next season, where promotion is a must for Steve Bruce. Blackburn's need may just be great this week end!
Derby v Wolverhampton
This very much has an end of season feel to this game, with both teams having nothing to play for. These games are always hard to call when there is nothing on the game. I think there will be goals in the game so like over 2.5 and both teams to score.
Fulham v Brentford
Her we have a London derby with two teams playing well. There should be goals in this game, as both sides have scored plenty of late. Fulham need to win to keep their place in the playoffs, as Leeds are waiting if they slip up. Brentford don't have a lot to play for, apart from tripping their London rivals up. I think Fulham will edge this one.
Ipswich v Sheffield Wednesday
Ipswich draw far too many games at home, they have drawn 4 of the last 6 at home. Wednesday have been in great form of late, winning their last 4 games on the spin. Wednesday will be looking to take this form into the playoffs. This could be a tight game, but don't think Wednesday will lose.
Leeds v Norwich
Leeds will be kicking themselves as their run of poor results means they have slipped out of the playoffs. Norwich don't have anything to play for as their mid-season dip has cost them dearly. I like the look of goals in this game.
Preston v Rotherham
Preston have lost their last 4 games on the spin, so will be looking to bounce back here this weekend. Rotherham are already down, so are only playing for pride. I really like the look of both teams to score in this game
QPR v Nottingham Forest
QPR have lost their last 6 games on the spin, so will be looking to change that around this weekend, But they have nothing to play for so could be tough to change their mindset. Forrest's win last week was huge as it will probably be enough to keep them safe this season.
Reading v Wigan
Reading will be looking to bounce back from last week's defeat at Nottingham Forrest, but they will be looking to take some good form into the playoffs. Anything other than a win and Wigan are down, even a win could see them relegated. I think Reading will have too much for Wigan here this weekend.
Brighton v Bristol City
A win and Brighton are champions, and they will be looking to bounce back from defeat against Norwich last week. Bristol City don't have anything to play for so it's hard to see them winning on the south coast.
