Pivotal seasons are on the horizon for West Midlands Championship rivals Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion but for far different reasons.

The blue half of Birmingham have a constant cloud of uncertainity hanging over their head in regards to ownership and with pre-season just around the corner and barely a squad to field - it’s already looking like anything above 22nd would be a success.

West Brom on the other hand are looking to bounce back to the Premier League at the second time of asking following a well below par campaign in 21/22 which saw them finish 10th.

Steve Bruce is the man tasked with re-shaping the squad into one that can challenge for a return to the big leagues and after the swift arrival of one John Swift, things have gone a little quiet over at the Hawthorns - but it’s still early days.

With that said, it hasn’t stopped the markets making their predictions ahead of 22/23.

Albion are favoured by most to be right amongst it in terms of the promotion places whilst it’s looking real bleak down at St Andrew’s as we approach mid-June.

Below, BirminghamWorld have taken a look at the latest market prices to determine the Championship’s predicted final standings for next season.
