Sheff Utd vs. Coventry (Saturday, 12.30pm)
The Blades have struggled since relegation from the Premier League last season and sit 17th, while the Sky Blues are surprise playoff contenders in fourth.
We say: Sheffield United 1-1 Coventry City
The international break came at the right time for Sheffield United, who will have used the two-week gap to refocus after a difficult run of form. Coventry will provide a stern test though, even if their away record requires improvement. A tight game lies in store.
Bristol City vs. Blackburn (Saturday, 3.00pm)
The home side have been on an opposite trajectory to their next opponents, losing five of their last six outings to drop closer to the relegation zone.
We say: Bristol City 1-2 Blackburn Rovers
While the international break undoubtedly came at the right time for Bristol City, we do not believe that it will change the end result at the weekend. Blackburn have the potential to be a strong team away from home, and that has led to us backing a Rovers victory.
Fulham vs. Barnsley (Saturday, 3.00pm)
Meanwhile, the Tykes, who will not have new boss Poya Asbaghi in charge until next week, are eager to reduce the deficit to safety with an unlikely result at Craven Cottage.
We say: Fulham 2-0 Barnsley
With a new head coach to impress, it would come as no surprise if Barnsley put in a strong performance in the capital. Nevertheless, we cannot back against Fulham, who we expect to record a win and clean sheet versus the Tykes.
Huddersfield vs. West Brom (Saturday, 3.00pm)
The third-place Baggies are currently six points behind the automatic promotion spots, while the Terriers are eighth and chasing a place in the playoffs.
We say: Huddersfield Town 1-1 West Bromwich Albion
Taking into account Huddersfield's strong record at home and West Brom's poor run on the road, the Terriers may actually be favourites against their higher-ranked opponents. We think it will be a tight affair and cannot separate the two sides.
Hull City vs. Birmingham (Saturday, 3.00pm)
The Tigers remain three points adrift of safety in 22nd place despite beating Barnsley a fortnight ago, while the Blues are 15th.
We say: Hull City 1-1 Birmingham City
With Birmingham still facing an injury crisis in defence, Hull may fancy their chances on Saturday. The Tigers' lack of goals remains their main issue, so we think it will be a low-scoring draw at the MKM Stadium.
Middlesbrough vs. Millwall (Saturday, 3.00pm)
Despite sitting five places adrift of their next opponents, Boro will move ahead of the ninth-placed Lions with victory at the Riverside Stadium.
We say: Middlesbrough 2-1 Millwall
Regardless of Wilder's presence, Millwall are good value to collect at least a point in the North-East this weekend. Nevertheless, Boro were not necessarily playing badly under Warnock, and that leads us to predict a narrow home victory.
Preston vs. Cardiff (Saturday, 3.00pm)
City return from the two-week international break sitting just three points above the Championship relegation zone, while Preston are six points better off in 16th place.
We say: Preston North End 1-1 Cardiff City
Cardiff's results have improved of late, and they could now do with finding some consistency under new permanent boss Morison.
Preston have won back-to-back games at Deepdale, but it has been almost a year since they won three on the spin there, and we can see them being held this weekend.
Reading vs. Nott'm Forest (Saturday, 3.00pm)
The Royals now sit six points adrift of their 13th-placed hosts, who ended a three-game winless streak before the international break.
We say: Reading 1-1 Nottingham Forest
With both teams winning before the international break, we expect this contest to be competitive. Each club can claim to be the marginal favourites, and it leads us to back an entertaining share of the spoils.
Stoke vs. Peterborough (Saturday, 3.00pm)
The hosts are up in fifth place thanks to back-to-back victories, while Peterborough are winless in three and are only one spot above the relegation zone.
We say: Stoke City 2-0 Peterborough United
The international break came at the wrong time for Stoke, who picked up six points from six before the hiatus, and they will be looking to hit the ground running here.
Peterborough's last win came a month ago and, given their poor record in this fixture down the years, we are backing the home side to come out on top.
Swansea vs. Blackpool (Saturday, 3.00pm)
Swansea City will overtake Blackpool in the Championship table if they beat the Tangerines on Saturday afternoon.
The Swans are currently 12th, two points behind Blackpool in 10th; both clubs are within touching distance of the playoff positions.
We say: Swansea City 1-0 Blackpool
Swansea's excellent home record makes them strong favourites for this game and we think they will take the three points. Blackpool have proved more than capable of holding their own in the Championship though, so it should be a close encounter.
