The Championship action continues to come thick and fast with another round of midweek matches and we have picked out three away sides who could have some joy.

Bristol City players celebrate a goal

Bristol City travel to Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night in the Championship with the visitors seeking to rediscover their early season form.

The Robins made a blistering start to the 2020/21 campaign but have stuttered of late after a tough run of fixtures, slipping to 10th in the table.

Dean Holden’s men have lost three in their last four, but a win in West Yorkshire could see them return to the playoffs places.

Terriers Uncomfortable on Own Patch

Huddersfield’s three wins in their last five games has lifted the confidence levels at the John Smith’s Stadium, but their form on home soil still needs improvement.

Two 1-0 wins over Nottingham Forest and Derby County helped ease the pressure on coach Carlos Corberan, but they have lost their other three home games this season.

Although results haven’t been going the way of opponents City in recent matches, Holden’s side have at least scored in 23 of their last 26 games in all competitions, making them a viable threat to any team.

Both teams to score and a Bristol City win is priced at 9/2 and should be considered, with Huddersfield yet to show they can consistently win on their turf.

Swansea Ready to Sting Brentford

Two of the Championship’s main promotion contenders clash at the Brentford Community Stadium as Brentford host Swansea on Tuesday evening.

Both sides qualified for the playoffs last season, and Brentford got the better of the Swans in their two-legged semi-final tie.

However, they failed to get the job done at Wembley, and both sides are targeting automatic promotion this time around.

Swansea have made the better start of the two sides when it comes to a top-two finish, sitting in second, while Brentford could move into the playoff places with a win.

The Bees have won three of their last four games against Swansea in all competitions, but the Swans are unbeaten in four and have performed well away from the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea have scored in each of their last 10 away games in the second tier, and at 16/5, they are taking a chance on.

Stoke Have What it Takes to Leapfrog Watford

Stoke City head to Vicarage Road on Wednesday and they will fancy their chances of beating Watford.

The home side have failed to win any of their last three games, including a draw with Wycombe Wanderers before losing to Barnsley at the weekend.

While they are unbeaten in four at home, Stoke have a good record at Vicarage Road.

The Potters have won six of their last eight trips to the famous London ground, and Michael O’Neill’s men have won four of their last five away from Staffordshire.

Given their record at Watford, Stoke are worth consideration at 27/10.
