The locals are getting restless with Valerien Ismael. The results have dried up, the performances haven't been great and the top two are slipping away.

McIlroy: No regrets from 'year of exploration'

  McIlroy: No regrets from 'year of exploration' Rory McIlroy has set his sights on a strong finish to a 'year of exploration' as he chases a third victory at the European Tour's DP World Tour Championship.The former world No 1 is a two-time winner on the PGA Tour in 2021, despite struggling for form and consistency as he continued to battle issues with his swing during an up-and-down campaign.

Nottingham Forest are ticking along picking up points under Steve Cooper, but unless they can turn draws into wins, any push for the top six will elude them. I think this will be another draw that doesn't really suit either side.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Preston vs Fulham, Saturday 12.30pm - Live on Sky Sports Football

Preston keep picking up wins at times you don't expect it. We saw them do a job at Bournemouth a couple of weeks ago, and then again at Middlesbrough in midweek.

This is another tough proposition for them. Fulham were held by Derby in midweek and will be hopeful of having Aleksandar Mitrovic back for this one. They should still have enough to win and keep their spot at the top.

Prutton predicts: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds)

Championship fixtures | table | highlightsBirmingham vs Blackpool, Saturday 3pm

Birmingham picked up a decent point at Coventry in midweek to ensure they didn't make it three defeats in a row. They are starting to get a little bit streaky under Lee Bowyer and he'll want that to change.

WSBK showdown in Indonesia: TOPRAK RAZGATLIOGLU vs. Jonathan Rea

 WSBK showdown in Indonesia: TOPRAK RAZGATLIOGLU vs. Jonathan Rea © Motorsport Images Toprak Razgatlioglu and Jonathan Rea make the title among themselves from at the weekend falls the decision in the Superbike World Cup. Yamaha Pilot Toprak Razgatlioglu travels with 30 points lead to the season finale in Indonesia. Defending champion Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki) depends on the bad luck of his rivals when he wants to turn the World Cup still. But in the current season there were already some surprises.

Blackpool have drawn three in a row and have just fallen a little away from the play-off picture. They are still enjoying a great season, though, and I do fancy them to bounce back here.

Prutton predicts: 0-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Bournemouth vs Coventry, Saturday 3pm

The gap to West Brom means there is no reason at all for Bournemouth to worry again. But they are starting to look a little less invincible than they were a few weeks ago.

Coventry have picked up two very different draws this week. Their lofty position in the table doesn't make this any less of a tough proposition, however, and they are not as good on the road as they are at home. I'll just about back Bournemouth to bounce back.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Huddersfield vs Middlesbrough, Saturday 3pm

Huddersfield would have been disappointed with their inability to hold on for a point at QPR in midweek, and did at times have Lee Nicholls in goal to thank for staying in that game for so long.

Tensions boil as team bosses reignite bubbling F1 feud

  Tensions boil as team bosses reignite bubbling F1 feud The most dramatic F1 title fight in at least a decade further intensified when Christian Horner and Toto Wolff traded barbs.Wolff, the head of Mercedes, and Red Bull principal Horner sat side-by-side during a tense 30-minute media briefing that displayed the full animosity between the two teams.

It's not been the start Chris Wilder would have wanted at Middlesbrough. Two home games, taking the lead in both and just one point on the board so far. I think the wait for a first win will go on a little longer, although it's still very early days. Score draw.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Peterborough vs Barnsley, Saturday 3pm

This is a big game, even at this stage of the season. Peterborough need to sort things out at the back, as they gave themselves no chance at Blackburn in midweek with some of the defensive errors.

It was defeat for Poya Asbaghi in his first proper game in charge against Swansea in midweek. They are already starting to look a little adrift and need to turn things around quickly. Both sides need a win, but I don't think either will get it.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Prutton's other predictions (Saturday 3pm kick-off unless stated)

Hull vs Millwall: 1-1

Luton vs Cardiff: 2-1

Stoke vs Blackburn: 1-2

Swansea vs Reading: 2-0

Sheffield United vs Bristol City (Sun 12.30pm - Live on Sky Sports Football Red Button): 1-2

Derby vs QPR (Mon 7.45pm - Live on Sky Sports Football): 2-2

  New-look European golf tour to host first tournament in Japan The new-look European Tour will make its first foray into the lucrative Japan golf market in 2022 after adding the ISPS Handa Championship to next year's recently announced schedule. The ISPS Handa Championship, with a purse of $2 million, will be co-sanctioned with the Japan Golf Tour (JGTO) and the inaugural event will be the first of a three-year deal. Japan great Isao Aoki, chairman of the JGTO, said it had been a "long-cherished desire" to host a European Tour event in the golf-mad country and "we can't wait to hold it".
