FootyOn outline Championship tips for September 16 ahead of another intriguing set of fixtures in the second tier.
A fascinating Championship campaign continues this weekend with every side featuring across Saturday’s action.
So, read on as we select five of the best Championship tips for September 16 from those games, including the live evening clash between Barnsley and Aston Villa.
Cardiff City v Sheffield Wednesday: Draw
Only four points separate these two sides going into their encounter at the Cardiff City Stadium.
Neil Warnock’s Welsh hosts sit a single point behind leaders Leeds United in second.
Meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday are currently in sixth after three wins and as many draws so far this term.
The last two meetings behind these teams on Welsh soil have ended level, in 1-1 and 2-2 stalemates.
As is the closeness between them early on this season, back another draw here at 12/5 with BetVictor.
Millwall v Leeds United: Visitors to win to nil
The hosts have managed just one victory so far this campaign, while Leeds are on a roll and remain unbeaten.
In the last meeting, the West Yorkshire outfit prevailed with a narrow 1-0 result.
Thomas Christiansen’s men are the only undefeated team in the division to this point and sit atop the standings.
They are 7/2 with Paddy Power to secure a win without conceding on their latest visit to The Den.
Hull City v Sunderland: Tigers to win and both sides score
In a battle of two of last season’s relegated Premier League sides, Hull City take on Sunderland.
The pair of sides have stuttered so far in their opening clashes in the Championship so far.
Both possess two of the leakiest defences in the league so far, though Hull have been able to find the target with more ease.
Back the Tigers to claw their way to a win here with both teams getting on the scoresheet at 10/3 with BetVictor.
Sheffield United v Norwich City: Billy Sharp to score anytime
South Yorkshire outfit Sheffield United are flying high in the early stages of the campaign.
Chris Wilder’s Steelers sit in third place and look more than capable of prevailing again here.
Home frontman Billy Sharp has been in fine form with four goals in seven league outings so far.
He is therefore a promising 8/5 with Paddy Power to strike again anytime at Bramall Lane.
Barnsley v Aston Villa: Hosts to win both halves
In the weekend’s only live Championship match-up, Barnsley host Aston Villa at Oakwell.
Neither side are enjoying a great run of late, though it’s the hosts who are narrowly ahead in the table.
Barnsley are boosted by the fact they haven’t lost to their next opponents since September 1997.
Back the Tykes to win both halves here at 5/2 with BetVictor in a potentially entertaining late kick-off on Saturday.
