Landscapes can change quickly in football and none change faster than the English Championship. The 46-game season – plus playoffs for those that qualify – makes for a gruelling season with games coming thick and fast. The evenness of the competition means that teams can lose 25 per cent of their season games and still never really be out of the race for promotion.

By the end of the 2018-19 season, Sheffield United and Middlesbrough both conceded fewer goals than any other side in the Championship. The former gained automatic promotion, the latter narrowly missed playoffs. Leeds United, who were anchored in the top two for most the season lost on the final day of the season to Ipswich Town who finished bottom and were relegated to League 1 while Stoke City finished their season with 22 draws and Brentford, despite scoring a whopping 72 goals, could only manage eleventh.

As it stands with the final third of the current 2019-20 season left to play out, only nine points separate the top seven teams in a fight for automatic promotion. For the four that miss the top two, the theatre and sudden death of playoffs make for gripping, edge-of-your-seat viewing for neutral fans, but for diehards – whose teams are vying for the third promotion spot – the unpredictability strikes fear and loathing into supporters; the league’s unpredictability is a nervy time for fans.
