League Championship Predictions - 4/21

The "weekend" starts today in the Championship so here are my predictions for this round:

Ipswich Town 1  Norwich City 2
Coventry City 2  Scunthorpe United 1
Leeds United 2  Reading 2
Doncaster Rovers 2  Crystal Palace 1
Nottingham Forest 2  Leicester City 1
Portsmouth 1  Swansea City 1
Millwall 2  Preston North End 1
Hull City 1  Middlesbrough 1
Derby County 1  Burnley 1
Watford 2  Barnsley 1
Cardiff City 1  Queens Park Rangers 1
Sheffield United 1  Bristol City 2

QPR is in a position to clinch the title this weekend.  Currently, Cardiff, Norwich and Reading are the only remaining teams that can catch them.  If the results play out as projected above, Reading would be eliminated from the title hunt.  A win by QPR eliminates both Cardiff and Reading and, potentially Norwich if they don't also win.  If QPR loses, Cardiff and Norwich remain in the hunt.  Reading would then have to defeat Leeds to keep their title hopes alive.
