Midweek Championship Preview, Game 44

Tomorrow night we play our game in hand on some when we entertain Cardiff City at the Valley. The win could put the Bluebirds level third with Sheffield United but still four behind Birmingham City with only two to play. Neither will catch City but you can bet Cardiff will go for it tomorrow night...

Charlton Athletic v Cardiff City
Cardiff will be heavy favourites for all three points here but there may be a touch of resignation in their game. They have only lost five away all season but have only managed five wins as well. Eleven draws could well become twelve tomorrow, if Charlton maintain their dogged spirit of recent weeks.
Prediction; 1-1

Coventry City v Barnsley
Like us, Barnsley have been grinding out the draws of late and I can see another one here. No loss of face for the Sky Blues and Barnsley could increase their lead over Norwich to two points.
Prediction; 1-1

Derby County v Reading
The Royals have blown their automatic chnaces and are in the sort of form to nosedive in the play-offs. They could yet lose 6th place which would be calamitous. I think they will close it out in their last two matches but I can see Derby routing them here to guarantee their own Championship future.
Prediction; 2-0

I am pleased to see Burnley edging past Sheffiled United 1-0 tonight to strengthen their play-off claim. They deserve it based on the football played this season.
