Blackburn vs Reading, Tuesday 7.45pm – Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button

When Blackburn have managed to get into the groove this season, they have been ruthless. Saturday’s 4-0 rout of Coventry was their third league win this term and, in those three games, they have hit 13 unanswered goals.

As impressive as that is, Tuesday’s opponents Reading, have only conceded a solitary goal in their opening seven games. Veljko Paunovic has got the Royals sauntering along nicely, with a healthy five-point cushion between themselves and second-placed Bristol City, meaning a draw will not do them too much harm.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Swansea vs Stoke, Tuesday 7.45pm – Live on Sky Sports Arena

Swansea have just started to stutter, having picked up only two points from their last three games. They were crying out for a killer touch to edge them past Bristol City at the weekend but Nahki Wells’ penalty seven minutes from time took the wind out of their sails when a first victory since October 3 was within touching distance.


The first-half performance against Brentford outlined what Stoke are capable of inflicting on much-fancied teams, yet a lack of concentration to allow the Bees to pull two goals back showed there is still work for Michael O’Neill to do. I cannot split these two.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)
