Weekend Predictions: 29th November

Here are this blog’s predictions for the weekend’s games in the Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two.

Premier League

It’s the novice against the master at Swansea, as 35-year-old Garry Monk takes on Neil Warnock, who started management the year after his opposite number was born. However, the award for most intriguing match in the Premier League this weekend goes to Southampton-Man City, as Southampton will be given a first major test of their Champions League credentials.

The Championship

There’s a bottom half clash at the Macron Stadium, as Bolton Wanderers and Huddersfield have both benefitted from a change of manager this season. Two sides who may be about to are Norwich and Reading, as Neil Adams and Nigel Adkins respectively are coming under increasing pressure, and both desperately need a win at Carrow Road.

League One

There are battles between teams around the League One play-off places this weekend. Sheffield United look to smoothen their stuttering form by ending Notts County’s unbeaten away record, while there’s a Manchester clash between Rochdale and Oldham, who have both surpassed expectations thus far. Crewe could move off the bottom with a win over Doncaster, who have benefitted from the recent return of striker Curtis Main.

League Two

Promotion contenders Luton look to bounce back from defeat to Burton when they host Mansfield, who have started well under caretaker boss Adam Murray. Plymouth look to avenge their 4-0 loss to York back in February with an 8th home win of the season, while John-Joe O’Toole will have his first game on loan at Southend against his parent club, Northampton.
