Barnsley to beat Huddersfield
Barnsley have been invigorated since the appointment of Gerhard Struber in late November. They are currently on a run of just two defeats in nine in all competitions, both of which came away from home.
Back at Oakwell, the Tykes have only dropped two points in four games under Struber, with that draw coming against second-placed West Brom on Boxing Day.
Huddersfield lost their fourth away game in six last weekend as they were beaten 2-0 by a fringe Southampton team in the FA Cup third round.
Middlesbrough to beat Derby
Middlesbrough enjoyed the best festive period of any club in the Championship, winning all four of their league fixtures and earning a 1-1 draw at home to Tottenham in the FA Cup.
Jonathan Woodgate’s side beat promotion chasers West Brom and Preston to nil in that sequence and come into this having won four league games on the spin at the Riverside.
Derby have picked up one point from their last seven away games in the Championship, while two recent narrow home victories both came against sides currently in the bottom six.
Coventry to beat MK Dons
Coventry come into this on a run of three straight league victories, including back-to-back 4-1 wins away to Tranmere and league leaders Wycombe.
The Sky Blues have lost one league game in 12 at St Andrew’s, taking 27 points in that period – a total only bettered by Wycombe, who have played one more game at home.
Fourth-bottom MK Dons have improved since Russell Martin was appointed as manager, winning three of their last five league games, but still have the second-worst away record in the division and are winless in eight.
Plymouth to beat Carlisle
No side in League Two has taken more points than the 18 accrued by Plymouth in their last eight league games – a run that has lifted them to sixth in the table.
The Pilgrims’ only defeat in their last five came against league leaders Swindon on New Year’s Day, while they have won three out of three against sides currently in the bottom four.
Carlisle have managed two victories from their last 12 games in all competitions.
Exeter to beat Cambridge
Second-placed Exeter are top of the six-game form table in League Two, following a run of four victories and two draws.
They have also been pretty handy at home recently, where they are currently on an 11-match unbeaten run in all competitions.
Cambridge were beaten 1-0 at crisis-club Macclesfield last weekend and are winless in their last 10 away games, failing to even score in four of their last five.
