Championship tips for September 8-9:
FootyOn experts pick out Championship tips for September 8-9, with a number of promising fixtures sticking out after the international break.
After a rip-roaring start to the campaign, in which only Cardiff City have maintained their 100 per cent record, the division has thrown out some intriguing fixtures after the international break.
Two televised games will be on our screens this matchweek, so we’ve picked out some Championship tips for September 8-9 along with a selection of Saturday’s 3pm kick offs…
Derby County v Hull City: Rams to win to nil
Live on Sky Sports Football and Main Event, kick-off 19:45 BST.
Sitting on the same number of points as each other, expect a tight affair between the two.
However, Gary Rowett’s men are showing signs that should bring Derby fans hope.
The last four wins in this fixture have been to nil and, with County already recording two victories without conceding in all competitions this season, look to back them at 23/10 with BetVictor to do it again.
Fulham v Cardiff City: Bluebirds to win by 1 goal
Neil Warnock’s Bluebirds are the only side in the Championship with their perfect record intact.
Three of their five Championship wins have come by just one goal and are 9/2 with Paddy Power to do it again against Fulham.
Leeds United v Burton Albion: Yorkshire outfit to win 2-0
Though many thought Leeds may struggle after Garry Monk left, new chairman Andrea Radrizzani and coach Thomas Christiansen has continued his fine work.
Sitting third in the table, their 21st place opposition will be dreading a clash against the Yorkshire outfit.
Leeds have triumphed 2-0 twice this season already and won by that scoreline last time they faced Burton at home.
Christiansen’s men are 13/2 with BetVictor to emulate that result and triumph 2-0 this weekend.
Wolverhampton Wanderers v Millwall: Draw and over 2.5 goals
With Willy Boly out, Wolves’ best defender this term, and former Molineux players George Saville and Jed Wallace out to show their former employers what they are missing – expect goals.
Wolves haven’t been short on goals this term either, netting two or more three times in all competitions this term already.
This fixture has produced six goals in each of the last two clashes and are 11/1 with betway to draw and over 2.5 goals this weekend.
Sheffield Wednesday v Nottingham Forest: Stalemate at Hillsborough
Live on Sky Sports Football and Main Event, kick-off 17:30 BST.
Though 10 places separate the two in the table, with Forest sixth, it’s only by three points.
Wednesday have won the last five fixtures between the two historic clubs but, with Forest looking a strong outfit, a draw looks a value bet at 5/2 with BetVictor.
