Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn celebrates Monday after his club secure promotion.
This Saturday’s set of fixtures will be the last of the Football League Championship regular season. Always an unpredictable and fiercly fought league, this year’s Championship has been particularly competitive. The top four teams have been separated by a point or less for much of the latter half of the season. Only in the last few weeks has their been some separation, but evens till the last weekend sees 8 teams that have already or are eligible for promotion. Ahead of the concluding matches this weekend, let’s take a look at which teams we can expect in the Premier League next season.
We’ve got two teams more or less locked in for promotion and six teams competing over four spots in the promotion playoffs in the coming weeks. None of the eight teams will be facing each other, perhaps unfortunately, and in fact only one will be playing another team in the top ten of the Championship. Nonetheless, they’ll each be giving it their all, even if Watford and Bournemouth might only be playing for pride at this point. It’s slated to be a heated end to the most popular and entertaining second division league in the world.
