Data experts predict Championship play-off fight outcomes for West Brom, Leeds United, Sunderland, Middlesbrough and rivals

Data experts have been predicting the final positions for all 24 Championship clubs during the 2023/24 season.

It's been a thrilling start to the campaign in the Sky Bet Championship and after 20 or 21 games per team, we've seen enough to make some decent judgements.

There are still more than half of the fixtures to go, however, meaning many big surprises could still come – especially in battles for the title, play-offs and surviving relegation.

Leicester City and Ipswich Town are leading the way but the likes of Leeds United and Southampton are gradually gaining. There have also been improvements from Sheffield Wednesday and QPR in the relegation fight.

The play-off battle is also incredibly fierce, with merely five points separating fifth-placed West Bromwich Albion and 13th-placed Norwich City.

Plenty of excitement is bound to come and that's exactly what the data experts are predicting. Based on averages from over 10,000 computer simulations, here's how the final Championship standings could look.
