There is another busy weekend of Championship action to get stuck into, starting with Friday's clash at the John Smith's Stadium!

Nottingham Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi

After a torrid start to the campaign, Nottingham Forest will look to kick-start their Championship campaign when they take on Huddersfield Town on Friday night.

Goalless Forest Need to Shrug off Hangover

Forest make the trip to West Yorkshire on the back of 2-0 defeats at the hands of both Queens Park Rangers and Cardiff City.

The Reds blew their chance to make the playoffs last season on the final day of the regular campaign and it seems they are suffering some sort of hangover from the shock of missing out on the top six.

A lack of a single goal will be especially troubling for manager Sabri Lamouchi but he has been allowed to bring in reinforcements this week.

Republic of Ireland midfielder Harry Arter has joined from Championship rivals Bournemouth, while Scotland defender Scott McKenna has signed from Aberdeen.

With Huddersfield also failing to register a single goal in their two league defeats so far, Friday provides an opportunity for Forest to get some points on the board and they are 9/5 for the win.

Swans to Add to Wycombe Woes

Another side that have failed to find the back of the net in their opening two games are promoted side Wycombe Wanderers and things won’t get any easier for them on Saturday when they host Swansea City.

A heartbreaking late goal condemned Wycombe to a 1-0 defeat in their opening game of the Championship campaign before a 5-0 hammering at the hands of Blackburn Rovers.

Considering their struggles over the last couple of weeks, Swansea are a decent price on 10/13 to secure what should be a regulation win for Steve Cooper’s men, who should be challenging for promotion back to the top flight this season.

Robins Can Continue Flying Start

Bristol City will look to continue their perfect start to the season when they welcome Sheffield Wednesday to Ashton Gate on Sunday.

After the departure of manager Lee Johnson last season, it’s a new-look set-up with the club under new boss Dean Holden.

Holden has hit the ground running with a side that have threatened to be in and around the playoff picture over the last couple of seasons.

League wins over Coventry City and Stoke City, along with a 4-0 win over Northampton Town in the Carabao Cup, will have certainly boosted the confidence around Ashton Gate.

It won’t be easy against a Sheffield Wednesday outfit that have picked up four points from their first two games but home advantage could play a key role in this one.

The Robins have lost just one of their last five home games against the Owls and Holden’s men are 8/5 to claim the three points this weekend.
