Tuesday's Championship predictions including Sunderland vs. Leicester

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's Championship fixtures, including Sunderland vs. Leicester.

Blackburn vs. Millwall (Tuesday, 7.45pm)

Both desperately striving to avoid unlikely drops into League One, Blackburn Rovers will do battle with a resurgent Millwall side at Ewood Park on Tuesday night in the Championship.

Rovers' winless run under their new management continued at Swansea City on Saturday afternoon, whilst the Lions were at their stubborn best to earn maximum points off Watford on the same day.

We say: Blackburn Rovers 0-0 Millwall

In a game that both teams will be desperate to avoid defeat in, we are expecting a cagey contest on Tuesday night, especially with Harris's Millwall in town.

Blackburn have the division's top goalscorer, but we reckon that they will have to settle for another home point under the leadership of Eustace.

Coventry vs. Rotherham (Tuesday, 7.45pm)

Coventry City play host to Rotherham United on Tuesday evening in increasing need of recording another three points in the Championship.

At a time when the Sky Blues have dropped down to ninth position in the standings, Rotherham are cut adrift at the bottom and all but relegated.

We say: Coventry City 3-1 Rotherham United

Rotherham may sense an opportunity to take advantage of a Coventry side that have lost their way in the second tier. However, we cannot back against the Sky Blues, who will deem this as the perfect fixture to get back on track.

In a contest which is set to have massive ramifications at both ends of the league standings, playoff hopefuls Hull City will welcome relegation-threatened Birmingham City to the MKM Stadium on Tuesday night for a Championship encounter.

The Tigers shared the spoils at Preston North End on Saturday afternoon, whilst Blues came out on the losing side of a seven-goal thriller versus Premier League-chasing Southampton.

We say: Hull City 2-1 Birmingham City

After back-to-back draws, Hull will be desperate to return to winning ways against Birmingham ahead of Leicester's visit to the MKM Stadium on the weekend.

Blues' tricky run of fixtures ends with a trip to the home of the Tigers on Tuesday night, when we think that the visitors could drop into the bottom three.

Leeds vs. Stoke (Tuesday, 7.45pm)

Seeking to snap a two-game winless run across all tournaments, Leeds United host Stoke City at their Elland Road headquarters in Tuesday's Championship showdown.

The Whites were forced to settle for a point in a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town over the weekend, while the Potters sunk Middlesbrough 2-0 to breathe new life into their survival bid.

We say: Leeds United 3-1 Stoke City

Stoke's offensive forces are rarely kept out on enemy territory, but shutting up shop at the other end of the pitch is where the Potters' problems lie away from home, and such vulnerabilities will surely be exposed by the Championship's best home team.

Fatigue may be starting to set in for Farke's overworked troops, but the Whites boss can adjust his attacking setup with some formidable options and ought to oversee a seventh straight league win at Elland Road.

Sunderland vs. Leicester (Tuesday, 7.45pm)

After losing three league games on the spin, Championship leaders Leicester City will aim to resume normal service on Tuesday, when they visit playoff hopefuls Sunderland.

While Leicester's downturn has proved cause for concern, the hosts have taken no points from their last four matches to slip down the second-tier standings.

We say: Sunderland 1-2 Leicester City

Perhaps this is the best time to be hosting Leicester City, who have started to stumble, but Sunderland are also struggling for top form and are in flux until a new manager is appointed. Therefore, the Foxes can steal away with all three points on Tuesday night.

Sheffield Wednesday will continue their Championship survival fight with a home game against Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday.

The Owls are currently sitting in 23rd place with three points separating them from safety, while the Pilgrims are five points better off in 16th position.

We say: Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 Plymouth Argyle

Sheffield Wednesday fell to a heavy defeat when the two sides last met in October, but we think Tuesday's meeting will prove to be an entirely different affair.

The Owls will be full of confidence following a run of three consecutive victories, and we believe they will do enough to beat a Plymouth side that has lost three of their last four matches.

Ipswich vs. Bristol City (Tuesday, 8.00pm)

Ipswich Town play host to Bristol City on Tuesday evening looking for the win that will keep them very much in the Championship title race.

At a time when the Tractor Boys now trail leaders Leicester City by just three points, Bristol City are in mid-table obscurity after three successive defeats.

We say: Ipswich Town 3-1 Bristol City

Although Bristol City have shown in the past that they can impressive at the bigger clubs away from home, we do not feel that it will be the case here. Ipswich look unbeatable right now and we are backing another ruthless performance at Portman Road.
