The stats reveal that the Blues were the team that gained the most points thanks to the changes at the club.

In 32 games, former Burton Albion boss Gary Rowett managed to get 52 points which took his new side from 23rd in the table to 10th which means that the Midlands side climbed an impressive 13 places.

However, at the other end of the scale, Reading saw the worst turn around as manager Steve Clarke only picked up a point a game during his 25 games in charge.

Unfortunately for Royals fans, their side slipped three places from where they were when Clarke took over but they did enjoy a very successful FA Cup campaign which saw them reach the semi-final at Wembley.
