Sitting just one point outside the relegation zone, Wolves are in desperate need of a positive result when they travel to Brentford on Tuesday evening.

This match is one of two games in hand that Paul Lambert’s men have most of their rivals and they need to take advantage, especially with the teams below them (baring Rotherham) start to pick up points.

Although Wolves’ away form has not been great this season, with just five league wins on the road, their form in the last couple of weeks suggests they can grind out a win (Wolves 11/5).

Two consecutive clean sheets will have boosted confidence, with an impressive 0-0 draw at an in-form Ipswich a followed by a 1-0 home win over bottom-club Rotherham. Wanderers are looking to do the double over the Bees after a 3-1 success back in September.

Brentford (5/4 to collect the points) meanwhile, come into the game off the back of a 1-0 home defeat to Huddersfield and with nothing much to play for – sat in 14th, nine points outside the relegation zone and 15 points outside the top six.

The other Championship game on Tuesday sees two teams desperate for the points for different reasons, as Fulham play host to Blackburn (Match Odds – Fulham 1/2, draw 11/10, Blackburn 21/4).

The Cottagers, after their stunning success at leaders Newcastle, can move into the top six with a win, but Blackburn can move out of the bottom three if they can avoid defeat.

Both teams go into the match unbeaten in their last five matches, but home advantage might prove key, especially as Fulham have lost just once (against Brighton) in 11 home league games.

Blackburn have failed to win any of their last five away games but back-to-back draws, at Burton and Norwich, will give them hope that they can spring a surprise.

The best bet looks like a Fulham win with both teams to score, which can be backed at 7/4.
