Guys, what about WBA and Brentford away wins? Both playing much better but play against teams who still fighting for avoid relegation. 

Can we trust them? 

Well, it would appear we can't trust one of them! Let's see if Brentford can handle the pressure and get a win to take themselves into the automatic promotion places!

Stoke vs Brentford

The Championship promotion race could take a huge twist today when relegation battlers Stoke host 3rd placed Brentford in a 12:30pm BST kick-off at the Bet365 Stadium. A win for the home side will secure their place in the division for next season and a victory for the travelling team will move them into one of the two automatic promotion spots with just one league game remaining.

Stoke have had a disappointing season with the club currently in 18th place. The team struggled to adapt to Nathan Jones's management but there has been a slight upturn in form since the appointment of Northern Ireland head coach Michael O'Neill. There is a 5 point gap between the Potters and the relegation zone so they are probably safe already but they'll want to make it mathematically impossible as soon as possible. It's back-to-back games unbeaten now with the team having only managed 1 win from their last 5 games prior to that and it's also two wins at home on the bounce with two clean sheets.

Brentford have won many admirers, including myself, this season with their fluid attacking football. It almost feels like justice that they now have the opportunity to move into the automatic promotion spots with a win here. Thomas Frank has done a cracking job of taking this squad to the next level. It's now 8 league games won in a row and their performances have not only shown their attacking prowess with 20 goals scored but their defensive stability with 6 clean sheets during that streak. Stoke have struggled against sides at the top end of the table having lost 3-0 to Leeds at home, 2-0 to West Brom at home, and then 5-0 away to Leeds the other week. That intense pressing and relentless attacking play is something this Stoke team may well find hard to resist.

I'm really pleased for Brentford that they have this opportunity. A club that competes with the big guns of London is punching above its weight and with this being their last season at Griffin Park it would be a fantastic way to say goodbye if they can get over the line. Stoke are in safe hands under O'Neill but he needs more time to shape the squad more into his image. Years of neglect and mismanagement have damaged that squad so it's a long term project. Brentford are further down the line and ready for Premier League football. I think they'll win here and take another step closer to realising the dream.

Middlesbrough vs Cardiff

The Championship play-off race is the focal point for our second preview this weekend when a realistically safe Middlesbrough take on play-off contenders Cardiff in a 3pm BST kick-off on Saturday afternoon at the Riverside Stadium. This game will see Neil Warnock face off against his former employers in a game that is certain to be fully charged with emotions.

Middlesbrough were looking in deep trouble just a few weeks ago when Jonathan Woodgate was at the helm. New manager Warnock has come in and, unsurprisingly, worked his magic with the club now 19th place and 5 points clear of the drop zone with two league games to go. It would be a bit of an oddity if they ended up going down now. Boro have won 3 of their 6 games with Warnock in charge and it appears to have been just about enough to help them survive. However, the team has lost all three of their home games since the restart and they haven't beaten a team positioned in the top half of the table at home all season.

Cardiff come into this game in 6th place knowing a win will put them on the brink of qualifying for the play-offs and could even seal it if Millwall and Swansea both fail to win. Neil Harris's men got off lightly recently with the teams chasing them not capitalising on their losses to Blackburn and Fulham. The 2-1 win over Derby with other results going there way has effectively eliminated the likes of Preston, Bristol City, and Derby from the play-off chase. The Bluebirds come into this game knowing that no team in the division has won more away league games in 2020 and it is 3 wins from their last 4 away league matches.

I'm tentatively optimistic about this game. I felt we were much improved against Derby compared to how we played against Blackburn and Fulham. As I have said before, Harris is quick to address issues. I think we have suffered from losing Albert Adomah but we're slowly adjusting. Middlesbrough are improving under Warnock but they're still a team full of weaknesses and flaws. I'd be disappointed if we didn't come away with at least a draw here and I feel we really should be looking to win this one.

Barnsley vs Nottingham Forest

The Championship relegation battle could take a bit of a twist today when bottom placed Barnsley take on play-off contenders Nottingham Forest in a 3pm BST kick-off at Oakwell. Failure to win this game will see the home side relegated to League One but a victory over their opponents would give them a fighting chance of survival heading into the final round of games in midweek.

Barnsley are a team that probably don't deserve to be in the position they're in. The constant story of their season is that they've fought hard and played well but just fallen short in their game. It means that Gerhard Struber's men are in 24th place and 5 points adrift of safety. Only two wins and other results going their way can save their season. The Tykes have now gone 4 league games without a win but it's also only 2 losses in their last 7 league matches in a run that has given them a chance to survive. Just 1 goal scored in their last 4 league matches shows where the issue lies and if you're not scoring goals when you're down the bottom then you're in trouble. However, Barnsley have only lost at home 3 times under Struber so they're a tough side to beat on their own patch.

Nottingham Forest come into this game knowing their play-off place is all but confirmed. The Tricky Trees are in 5th place and 3 points clear of Swansea situated in 7th spot but with a far superior goal difference that would mean only a pair of outrageous results on the final day if Forest lost this game. It begs the question whether Sabri Lamouchi will use this as an opportunity to rest some players ahead of the play-offs after what has been an intense schedule since the restart. It's no win in the last 4 league matches so the first choice players haven't exactly been shining recently either. The one stand-out statistic is that Forest are unbeaten in their last 6 away league games and have drawn 5 of them.

I'm not sure which way this game will go. I saw Barnsley play earlier this season and they didn't look like a team that was going to get relegated. They simply suffered from momentary lapses in concentration but that could be what sends them down. I'm not convinced they can win this game but then I don't think Forest are playing well enough to grab the victory either. It seems mad to predict yet another Forest draw on the road but it feels like that is the most likely outcome here.
