Three matches tonight so that's less for me to get wrong then...

Bolton Wanderers v Sheffield Wednesday

For fear of stating the obvious, Wednesday need to start picking up points. There has been a realisation that they are moving in the right direction in terms of the way Carlos Carvalhal wants them to play, but the most tangible movement at the minute is down the table. Bolton haven't fared much better, but then again there was an expectation they would struggle this season. They are unbeaten in their last three though and aside from a 3-0 defeat to Middlesbrough, Neil Lennon's men don't concede many. Could be tight.

Prediction: Bolton 0 Sheffield Wednesday 1

Brighton v Rotherham United

The Millers are just beginning to find their feet a little after some big changes to the team since last season and a hard-fought draw at Charlton on Saturday was an example of that. However in-form Brighton will be a different proposition altogether. Hard to see Steve Evans side coming away from the south coast with much more than some candyfloss.

Prediction: Brighton 2 Rotherham 0

Sheffield United v Colchester United

Sheffield United's defeat to Bury on Saturday looked worse than it was. No, they probably didn't deserve to win, but the scoreline suggests a comfortable win for the visitors and it wasn't at all. Blades fans shouldn't worry too much, about it and I'd expect them to be back on the winning horse tonight against a team struggling near the bottom. Nigel Adkins was right to say his side wouldn't stop playing the attacking football they have been producing so far this season and tonight I can see a response coming from the front men.

Prediction: Sheffield United 2 Colchester United 0
