New predicted Championship table forecasts finishes for Birmingham City, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry City, Preston North End and rivals

The most updated final predicted table for the 2023/24 Sky Bet Championship season.

The results of the fixtures over the fourth-to-last weekend of the 2023/24 season have upped the ante across the Sky Bet Championship, with the title race, relegation battle and play-off fight set to go down to the wire.

Ipswich Town are the new leaders following their 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough but Leicester City, one point behind in second, have a game in hand. Leeds United, on the other hand, are two below Ipswich after suffering a surprise 1-0 home defeat to Blackburn Rovers.

Southampton, 16 points clear of seventh, have confirmed their place in at least the play-offs but there could be a late charge for the automatic promotion spots with their two matches in hand. West Bromwich Albion look set to secure fifth but Norwich City are hot on their tracks.

Hull City and Coventry City, albeit outsiders in the battle, are hoping to surprise one of either West Brom or Norwich to round off the top six. Middlesbrough and Preston North End are just about hanging in on there, too, but Michael Carrick and Ryan Lowe will have almost accepted defeat at this stage.

The fight at the foot of the standings is growing all the more interesting as just three of the bottom half failed to pick up points over the weekend just gone. Birmingham City dominated Coventry City to clinch a vital 3-0 win at St Andrew’s @ Knighthead Park but Stoke City, Huddersfield Town and Sheffield Wednesday all drew.

As it stands, just six points separate Millwall in 16th and Wednesday in 23rd with three matches to go. Blues, just one point above Huddersfield, could easily be sucked in and as could the other sides above if their form drops away.

It’s almost impossible to predict how the final Championship standings could look but the latest Sky Bet figures give us a decent idea. With that in mind, here’s a run-through of the predict final table, from first to last.
