Administrator Stan 17,473 Posted February 14, 2018 Administrator Share Posted February 14, 2018 The thick end of the season! Plenty of teams still in danger of getting sucked in to the relegation battle. In previous seasons, the following have finished 21st and escaped relegation with their points in brackets: 16/17 - Nottingham Forest (51 points, goal difference) 15/16 - Rotherham (49 points); Charlton relegated on 40 points) 14/15 - Rotherham (46 points); Millwall relegated on 41 points 13/14 - Birmingham (44 points, goal difference) 12/13 - Barnsley (55 points); Peterborough relegated on 54 points 11/12 - Barnsley (48 points); Portsmouth relegated on 40 points 10/11 - Doncaster (48 points); Preston relegated on 42 points 09/10 - Crystal Palace (49 points); Sheff Weds relegated on 47 points 08/09 - Plymouth (51 points); Norwich relegated on 46 points 07/08 - Coventry (53 points); Leicester relegated on 52 points Average total points over 10 years for 21st place - 49.4 Average total points over 10 years for 22nd place - 45.7 Current table: Whilst it's vastly unlikely that anyone Millwall, Sheff Weds or QPR will get relegated as they only need a few more wins to be safe, stranger things have happened in football. Hull's fall has been remarkable for all the wrong reasons. In a right slump. Looks like Burton's time in the Championship could be coming to an end. A valiant effort up til now. Birmingham's upturn in form should give them some confidence to perhaps pull away in the right direction. Likewise with Bolton. Towards the end of the season, there could be some very pivotal moments in key games... 10th April - Burton vs Hull 14th April - Hull vs Sheff Weds 14th April - Reading vs Sunderland 14th April - Barnsley vs Bolton 21st April - Sunderland vs Burton 28th April - Burton vs Bolton 28th April - QPR vs Birmingham Final Day - 6th May Birmingham vs Fulham (relegation vs play-off?) Bolton vs Nottm Forest Brentford vs Hull Cardiff vs Reading (play-off vs relegation?) Derby vs Barnsley (promotion vs relegation?) Preston vs Burton (play-off vs relegation?)
