Final predicted Championship table forecasts shock play-off outcomes for West Brom, Norwich City and Hull City

How the final Sky Bet Championship table is predicted to look after the conclusion of the 2023/24 season.

Nine months, 540 matches and countless rollercoasters of emotion later, the final day of the 2023/24 Sky Bet Championship has finally arrived.

All 24 teams are in action at 12.30pm this Saturday for their concluding fixtures of the campaign and there are still three key battles undecided at various points in the league standings.

Leicester City have already been crowned champions but the second automatic promotion spot is still yet to be confirmed. Ipswich Town have a three-point advantage over Leeds United but an inferior goal difference means a draw is required against Huddersfield Town to secure a famous promotion to the Premier League.

One of Leeds or Ipswich will fall into the play-offs with Southampton and two others. Norwich City are firmly in the top six with only a heavy defeat capable of dropping them out. West Bromwich Albion are a point below in the final play-off spot but Hull City could still clinch it if the Baggies lose to Preston North End.

Down at the bottom, Birmingham City are fighting for their Championship lives. Disappointing draws away at Rotherham United and Huddersfield have left Blues in a dire position, with only a win against Norwich realistically enough to survive the drop.

Sheffield Wednesday are in a strong position three points above Birmingham but a worse goal difference means a loss away at Sunderland could result in relegation. Plymouth Argyle, against Hull, and Blackburn Rovers, away at Leicester, are also in trouble.

Which teams, then, are expected to come out on top in the respective battles? Based on thousands of computer simulations, here’s how the final 2023/24 table is predicted to look.
