Ups and Downs

Championship
Promotion:
Norwich will be (automatically) promoted if they get at least a draw. If they lose, and Leeds draw/win on Sunday, Norwich will have to wait til final day to be title winners
If Sheff Utd draw/win and Leeds don't match their result, they'll be automatically promoted

Relegation:
Reading will be safe if they match Rotherham's result
Millwall will be safe if they beat Stoke and Rotherham don't win.
Rotherham simply have to beat West Brom to have any chance of survival

League One
Promotion:
Luton will be automatically promoted if they draw and Sunderland beat Portsmouth

Relegation:
Accrington Stanley are safe if they beat Plymouth
Wycombe are safe if they beat AFC Wimbledon
Bristol Rovers are safe if they match or better AFC Wimbledon & Scunthorpe results
Walsall have to beat Peterborough to have any chance of survival going in to the final weekend

League Two
Promotion:
Lincoln are already promoted as Champions
Bury are promoted if they win and one of MK Dons & Mansfield lose

Relegation:
Macclesfield are safe if they win and Yeovil & Notts County lose
Yeovil & Notts County will be relegated out of the Football League if they both lose and Macclesfield win

Think this weekend will sort out automatic. Can't see both Norwich and Sheffield United losing their games, Leeds are struggling at just the wrong time and are up against a ridiculously in form Villa.

I'm still too sad to talk about automatic. It's crushed me and I don't expect anything other than two home wins for Norwich and Blades.

There will be less pressure on us against Villa. We have a decent record against the Top 6 and beating them would be a good psychological feather in the cap to have going into the playoffs.

I'd play a couple of the kids. Genuinely. We have some talented one's who deserve a chance. Maybe we need to take the pressure off a couple individuals who are struggling.

Bolton Wanderers Football Club regrettably confirms that Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship fixture against Brentford has been called off.

The club would like to apologise for the inconvenience this will cause.

A further update will be released in due course.

Was about to say I've never known that happen but it turns out it's the first time ever in the Football League history.

Fair play to them mind. Utter fucking disgrace what is happening to the club and its employees and it takes genuine bollocks to make a stand of that magnitude.

Bolton should be reimbursing Brentford fans' travel as well when they get their arses into gear.

That's two things that won't happen.

Sadly true.

Appalling situation all round. Don't actually blame the players either.

I think if city don't go up this year that should be the end for Lee Johnson. I think manager should get two years if possible. Personally I think city should go all out to get the Cowley brothers @BounceAroundTheGround

Do you not think Johnson could/should be given another year?

I don't really know a lot about city's finances and what they have spent. 2 years is longer than a lot of managers would get but doesn't necessarily mean that is the wrong thing to do.

True, maybe if they can give him a bit of money to improve the squad and go one better (if they miss out on play-offs) it might be wiser.

Funnily enough Steve lansdown has recently said that what has happened at Bolton is the reason why they don't over invest.

Which is why he runs a successful pension fund and has an astronomical net worth. A very, very well-run club.

If Bolton don't complete their fixtures don't they get relegated to League 2?

In theory, it's expulsion from the League. 

Never mind, the EFL will not have a club to expel from the league by the 8th May.

Gutted for Yeovil. Think they will struggle to get back in the football league. To be honest they have overachieved for years

If we do get promoted one thing I won’t miss about the football league is the thuggish attitude towards playmakers and weak referees.

Fair play to bielsa but it’s cost us El Ghazi in the playoffs now because his teams scummy move. I always wondered about the dirty Leeds tag, I can’t argue with it on today’s showing, glad they’ve fucked automatic now tbh. 

Bamfords an utter cunt

3 games but I’m sure it’s going to be rescinded. 

Not happy about that I’d play kids v Norwich and rest up now
