Championship Run In

Looking at the run ins, I think Brighton have the easiest; they’re either facing teams who’ve nowt to play for (Norwich, QPR, Villa) or teams facing the drop (Birmingham, Bristol, Wigan, and Wolves). That said, they’re facing Villa and Norwich who’ve been under performing and are better than their league positions and Brighton will also be facing teams fighting for their lives…


We’re next with 1 relegation candidate (Burton), 2 Promotion candidates (Leeds, Shef Wed) and then finally play 4 teams who will likely be on the beach (Barnsley, Cardiff, Ipswich and Preston). Come through the next 3 games with 6+pts and I’d fancy us to win the final 4 games against the teams on their holidays.


Huddersfield have the toughest run in, I reckon. 3 sides who could well still be in the hunt for a promotion (Norwich*, Preston and Fulham) and 3 sides fighting against relegation (Forest, Wolves, Birmingham) only 2 holiday sides (Derby, Cardiff).


10 game form has us all on 1.9PpG, 6 game has us first (1.83PpG), Brighton second (1.5) and Huddersfield way back on (1.17) which is the same as Blackburn. If we revert to our Season’s PpG for the final 7 we’ll end on 95.68.


Leeds and Fulham are the form teams around the Play Off spots going into the final 7 games.






*Norwich are both a promotion battler and a holiday side because while they’re still in the scrap now, by the time Brighton face them they won’t be.
