Charlton vs Nottingham Forest, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Action from 7.40pm
There is an awful long way to go but Charlton have had an excellent start to life back in the Championship. The way they battled back twice at Barnsley for a draw on Saturday showed their resolve as well.
Sabri Lamouchi got his first win in charge of Nottingham Forest on Saturday, which will help settle things for him a little. I do, however, think this will be a draw.
Prutton predicts: 1-1 (5/1 with Sky Bet)
Charlton vs N Forest
August 21, 2019, 7:40pm
Leeds vs Brentford, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button
It was important for Leeds to get that win on Saturday. You feel that any memories of last season are well and truly banished now and everyone at the club can look forward.
Brentford look like they could struggle for goals this season, having netted just two so far and both coming from Ollie Watkins. Will they live to regret not properly replacing Neal Maupay? Leeds to win.
Prutton predicts: 2-1 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
Preston vs Stoke, Wednesday 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Football from 7pm
If Preston are going to make the leap into the top six this season then they will need to start picking up at least a point from games like the one on Saturday, where they led at Swansea and then pulled level at 2-2, but still came away with nothing.
Stoke are improving under Nathan Jones but they need to start winning games soon. One point from the first three games they have had is not good enough. They may well lose at Deepdale as well.
Prutton predicts: 2-1 (17/2 with Sky Bet)
