Who’s going up and down? This weekends Football League permutations



As we come to the second to last game week of the season, there are many clubs fighting for automatic promotion places, play-off spots and also battling to avoid the drop.

Derby County v Wolverhampton Wanderers - Sky Bet Football League Championship

Clubs such as Northampton have already clinched promotion, and some have already got the dreaded ‘R’ next to their name.

Up and down the Football League there are many clubs that could seal their fate this weekend.

You can see a full list of fixtures on our website.

In this article we will discuss the permutations of this weekends fixtures…


At the top, Burnley could be promoted on Monday if they beat QPR and Brighton lose to Derby as the Seagulls face fellow promotion chasers Middlesbrough on the final day, meaning the Clarets will be guaranteed a top two spot.

However, at least one automatic promotion spot will be up for grabs when Middlesbrough face Brighton at the Riverside next weekend.

If Sheffield Wednesday manage to avoid defeat to seventh-placed Cardiff City then they will confirm their place in the play-offs.

At the bottom of the Championship, the relegation places have all already been taken with MK Dons, Charlton Athletic and Bolton Wanderers on their way to League One football next season.

League One

Wigan Athletic need just one point to be promoted this weekend against struggling Blackpool. But if they were to lose, and Walsall were to as well on Monday, then the Latics would still find themselves promoted.

Burton Albion will also be promoted if they take more points this weekend than 3rd placed Walsall do.

Blackpool and Doncaster will both be relegated to League Two if they don’t stay within 3 points of Fleetwood Town but will have to wait until they play on Monday to decide their fate.

League Two

Accrington Stanley and Oxford United can both seal promotion to League One if results elsewhere go their way and they do the job themselves.

If Cambridge United fail to win today then AFC Wimbledon will secure the last play-off spot. Although they can also do this by taking more points from their game than Cambridge do.

But the 2 teams facing relegation have already been confirmed as York and Dagenham and Redbridge.
