Sky Sports Ian Holloway predicts the outcomes of the big games in the Football League, including Cardiff v Middlesbrough and Burnley v Nottingham Forest. Ipswich v Hull, Tuesday 7.45pmCrikey, many people will be lumping on Hull here, but I cant go against the legend that is Mick McCarthy. Remember, this is the Championship and anyone can beat anyone on a given day.Ipswich have lost three of their last four league games but all of those defeats have been away from home and theyre not as bad as it seems. Traditionally, Town are strong at home and have won three of last five at Portman Road. Theyll raise their game for the league leaders. Home win. Hull ground out a 0-0 draw against Arsenal on Saturday OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds 13/2)Burnley v Nottingham Forest, Tuesday 7.45pmBurnley will be top of the table come 10pm on Tuesday. Theyre on the charge and have the right man in their corner, who has been here before and done it. Sam Vokes didnt let me down at the weekend getting the first goal (get in!). Hes good for the first goal again. His experience will be vital in the run-in. OLLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds 15/2)Middlesbrough v Cardiff, Tuesday 7.45pmI thoroughly enjoyed working at Cardiff last weekend - I wouldnt mind going back for this game, what a belter.Brighton didnt do a lot wrong against them but ended up losing 4-1. Everything the Bluebirds hit went it, which is a change from what weve seen so far this season. The movement up front from their strikers was excellent and Anthony Pilkington was a revelation. If they can produce that level of performance here, theyll win. Im backing them to do so. Cardiff boosted their play-off hopes with a 4-1 win at home to Brighton Middlesbrough are finding out what the Championship is all about - competition, competition, competition. They were six points clear last month but no one can run away with this league. Theyve been struggling to score goals and that puts pressure on your back-line. OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds 8/1)Bristol City v Brighton, Tuesday 7.45pmI tipped Bristol City to win last week, but Im off that bandwagon for this game. Lee Johnson has done brilliantly to win his first two games, but Brighton are a different animal to the teams theyve faced in the last two weeks. Despite losing 4-1 at Cardiff, Brighton didnt do much wrong - its a defeat that wont knock them too much. Chris Hughton will get a reaction from his team. Sometimes it takes a defeat to re-focus you. OLLIE PREDICTS: 0-1 (Sky Bet odds 17/2)Sheff Wed v QPR, Tuesday 7.45pmThis is a tough cookie of a game for QPR. The Rs full-backs isolate their centre-backs and Sheffield Wednesday will expose that.Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has got to sieve through that QPR squad. He needs to get rid of the weak links and the overpaid people, who arent as good as the money theyre getting. That will gradually get QPR where they need to be.Mauricio Pochettino didnt pull up any trees in his first season at Tottenham, but look at them now.I think they should start bringing in younger players between now and the end of the season - thats if the players are good enough. The club have reportedly spent enough money on the academy now - lets test the set-up. QPR manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has only won two games in the job OLLIE PREDICTS: 2-0 (Sky Bet odds 8/1)Birmingham v Bolton, Tuesday 7.45pmThe news of the Bolton takeover will be a lift for the players - I can see them getting something here, but theyre the only side in English football still without an away league win this season! Neil Lennons men are only six points off safety with 13 games left - they could easily get out of trouble, especially now the threat of a 12-point deduction has been seemingly taken away. Birmingham havent won in three Championship games but this team fight for everything.Ive read that former Birmingham boss Alex McLeish is in talks over a management job in Egypt. Fair play to him. Blimey, what a hot climate to work in. He better pack his sun cream! We could be seeing a few results like: Sun 1, McLeish 0. Championship club Bolton has been sold for £7.5m to the Sport Shield Group Consortium, which is led by their former striker Dean Holdsworth OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds 9/2)Brentford v Wolves, Tuesday 7.45pmBrentford are having a tough time and Wolves will have that extra bit of quality to hurt them. The Bees have allowed too many of their top players to leave. Im not sure theyve got the right balance in their squad under Dean Smith.Wolves arent exactly flying but Kenny Jacketts teams are always tough to beat. There shouldnt be any pressure building on him - it should be building on the owner. He has given up and I dont blame him. Its getting tougher and tougher to please people in football. He has made it clear that he wants to sell and it makes it very difficult for Kenny. Brentford have lost six of their last eight Championship games and this will be another one. OLLIE PREDICTS: 0-1 (Sky Bet odds 6/1)Preston v Charlton, Tuesday 7.45pm Highlights of Prestons 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in the Sky Bet Championship Preston are one of my teams of the season. Theyve hardly put a foot wrong. Simon Graysons men have won their last three league games, including ruining my coupon last weekend against Sheffield Wednesday with Joe Garner getting the goal. He could have a huge end to the season if he gets going.What is going on at Charlton? The fans are angry, theyre propping up the table and the owners look like they have no plan in place. Questions need to be asked about that club. Home win.OLLIE PREDICTS: 2-0 (Sky Bet odds 5/1)Reading v Rotherham, Tuesday 7.45pmBrian McDermott is working his magic in the cup at Reading and theyre steadily improving in the league, too.Micheal Hector scored a brilliant goal at the weekend against West Brom. Hes been a revelation since moving into midfield. Hes a fantastic player and its no surprise Chelsea have identified his ability. But why did he chose to move there? For the dough probably. He should continue learn his trade - play and learn, play and learn. He has got huge potential. Neil Warnock is plotting to save Rotherham from relegation OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds 5/1)Derby v Blackburn, Wednesday 7.45pmDerby needed that victory on Saturday. Will they continue this winning run? Surely they will against Blackburn, who were spanked by a very impressive West Ham side in the FA Cup. Dimitri Payet is my current favourite player in football - put him and Barry Bannan in a team and they would be unstoppable!

England head to France for Euro 2016 in confident mood after their 100 per cent success in qualifying Group E, and are up against Russia, Slovakia and Wales in the group stage in June.Captain Rooney scored seven goals in the qualifying campaign, including a record-breaking 50th to take him above Sir Bobby Charlton in Englands all-time goalscorer list. Rooney has 51 goals for England at the age of 30 In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports Nick Collins, Rooney says that while Englands versatility and quality is clear to see, consistency will be key to any success.I feel weve got a very good squad. Its probably the first time Ive felt the squad is capable in any given game of matching any team, he said.But obviously its one thing having that, and another being able to do that consistently throughout a tournament. Roy Hodgson has announced his England squad ahead of Euro 2016 Weve got players who can play anywhere across that front line. Myself, Jamie Vardy, Raheem Sterling, Daniel Sturridge can play out wide too. Its always difficult for opponents as well.You never know with the players weve got how well they can do. Weve had a good European Qualifiers campaign, but we need to make sure that we dont slack, that we keep going and keep pushing forward, and give ourselves every possible chance. Rooney has played much of the season with Manchester United in midfield The Manchester United skippers best position for England is highly-debated, and while Rooney wants to play as striker he is open to playing in different positions for his country. Rooney on... England skipper speaks exclusively to Sky Sports about Englands chances at Euro 2016 Rooney has been used both as a striker and as a central midfielder by United manager Louis van Gaal this season but it is understood Hodgson will use him on the left wing in a 4-3-3 system following conversations between the two. QUIZ: England squads Test your knowledge of previous squad announcements Another option would be to use the 30-year-old at the top of a midfield diamond or as a No 10, where he has also been used by United this season, and Rooney feels he is suitable for a number of positions.As a player you are always adapting, said Rooney, who was speaking as part of a Home Nations and Republic of Ireland special, where captains Ashley Williams, Steven Davis and Robbie Keane will speak with Sky Sports.You adapt to your team-mates, you adapt to the different coaches you are working under. It depends what the coaches want from you. The England captain is keen to be a leader for the younger players Throughout my career Ive adapted to different situations and different teams Ive played in, and I have no problem doing it. In football you need players who can play in different positions. Ive always felt like I can play in different positions.But Ive always believed I am capable of playing in different positions. I think you saw in World Cup 2006 with Owen Hargreaves, he was probably Englands best player, purely for the fact he could play in different positions.To have players like that in your squad is really important. The good thing that Roy has now is that he can look at the opponents and pick a midfield which is best for beating the opponent. We havent always had that. Roy Hodgson thinks Rooney is key for England but admits he doesnt have to pick him in the starting XI He could change the whole 11 if he had to now, and we would still have the chance of winning the game.ddddddddddddooney was made captain after the World Cup in 2014 following Steven Gerrards international retirement, something he says he takes immense pride in.With several young players coming through, including Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Eric Dier, Marcus Rashford and John Stones, Rooney is keen to take on a leadership role, but not without the help of a small group of other senior team members. Former England defender Jamie Carragher thinks Rooney may have to play in midfield to make room for Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy Rooney said: I felt I was the natural successor to Steven as captain, and the manager did too. Its something I was delighted to do, and I want to do it to be successful as well.Its something I really take pride in and want to do to the best of my ability. I think the young lads in the squad, theyve helped a lot, I feel its an exciting time for English football with the squad we have.The manager involves me in a lot of decisions. Obviously theres myself, and then weve put a team together with a few of the other senior players. Paul Scholes evaluates Englands chances at Euro 2016 If decisions on behalf of the team need making, I will go to those players, talk through it and decide what is best for the team.But of course, you have to be a role model and ambassador for the country, and thats what Ive tried to do to the best of my ability.For more from Wayne Rooney, including his thoughts on the European Qualifers campaign, the extended interview will be shown throughout the day on Tuesday on Sky Sports News HQ Also See: Rashford, Wilshere called up Rooney wants midfield role QUIZ: England Euros squads Euro 2016 news Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Hoodies Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Discount Jerseys ' ' '
