Very exciting stuff to the end, as always in the Championship!
Wigan look in a good position to secure top 6, while just below them Reading, Brighton & Ipswich all on 64 pts in 6th, 7th, 8th place.
At the other end teams like Birmingham, Blackpool and Charlton not safe from the drop zone just yet. Four more games to go...
C'mon you Watford!
24 points left to play for.

Leicester need 10 points won (or dropped by QPR) to get automatic promotion.
Burnley need 13.

Looks like relegation will be between 3 of these 4:
Charlton Athletic
Yeovil Town
Barnsley
Millwall
Leicester has a cushion of 13 pts to QPR and a game in hand! They're to meet Burnley next so at least that will play into QPR's hands, however I think we have our top 2.

Think Yeovil, Barnsley & Millwall go down.

There we go, Burnley lost 0-2 to Leicester but QPR only managed a draw at home to Blackpool. QPR will prob be favourites to win the play-offs but I've got fingers crossed for Derby!

QPR had too many changes, too many new players. Harry is doing a fine job to keep them on top.
Maybe you could get Harry to Arsenal when Wenger has had enough!
Leeds going to be promoted ever??
They need some oil money.

Leicester has oil money?
No, travel retail money.

Big game coming up, Burnley - Derby.
+1
Other matches:

QPR v Leeds
Bolton v Blackburn
AFC Bournemouth v One Direction
Good win for Burnley. I think we just about have our top 2 now..
(Good win for Bolton vs Blackburn too! While One Direction are heading in the wrong direction.)

Yes, that scoreboard is a mess this week. 5-0 final results everywhere.

With 13 matches left in the season, I don't think anyone is set in stone. Just look into Leicester City's history and you'll see what I mean...
Nah.. Leicester won't drop this. Kasper Schmeichel is in great form and the past only means so much.
+1
If Forest don't get up this season I'll have to spend another dreadful year of watching them have success and fun in the Championship. Plus the added bonus of being able to make fun of the PL teams and taking the moral high ground of not having money or selling out.

Careful with promotion. It's a triple-edged vibrator.

If you're promoted, you get to enjoy (in no particular order):
* firing a manager that helped get the club promoted, has been with the club and players for 5 years, and won "Championship Manager of the Month" 13 times in one year
* replacing all your local/academy-bred players for Italian and Spanish footballers for no reason really because that's what every other club in the Prem does so I might as well too
* changing the club's name to Nottingham Fortress without telling anybody because hey, that's also what promoted clubs do

Anyway, good luck on promotion!
:)

Brighton, with highest attendance in the Championship, post £14.7 million loss:

I'd be happy with this table at new year being the same come May. Leicester and Derby to qualify directly, for Burnley, QPR, Forest and Ipswich to battle it out for third qualification spot.
