After a rare lapse from David Prutton, he is back on track.
The Sky Sports pundit forecast Newcastle to beat Burton 1-0 on Wednesday and now that he has actually got a prediction right, he has reverted back to type.
David Prutton thinks Rafa Benitez will use the same tactics that beat Huddersfield 3-1 away from home but this time the Magpies will ‘slip-up’, whilst the other two teams in the top three (Brighton and Huddersfield) will win.
Predicting a 2-2 draw for Newcastle at Hillsborough, Prutton believes that because of NUFC’s strong position, the United boss will take a draw.
After a run of only one win in seven, Sheffield Wednesday managed to beat rock bottom Rotherham 2-0 on Tuesday, though reports suggest they were anything but convincing.
Meanwhile, Newcastle have lost just one of their last 15 Championship games.
Another interesting second tier weekend awaits…
“Automatic promotion is paramount for Newcastle, but because of the cushion they have in the top two, and with Wednesday needing a result to stay in the pack, I think it will be a draw.”
David Prutton predictions this coming weekend:
Friday 7 April
Qpr 1 Brighton 2 (7.45pm)
Saturday 8 April
Leeds 1 Preston 1 (3pm)
Norwich 0 Reading 2 (3pm)
Nottingham Forest 0 Huddersfield 2 (3pm)
Sheff Wed 2 Newcastle 2 (5.30pm)
