This season of the EFL championship is gradually coming to an end.
The first two teams to be promoted to the Premier League games have been decided, Norwich City and Sheffield United.
A third football team to make it to the Premier League games is needed.
However, the final championship playoffs still have to be played, and as usual, there will be four teams contending.
Leeds United, West Bromwich, Aston Villa, and Derby County currently occupy the third, fourth, fifth and sixth spots on the Championship table.
But with a last game to be played by each team, will these teams be able to keep their spots on the table?
Leeds United, West Bromwich and Aston Villa have earned enough points to stay in the game of the playoff no matter the outcome of their next match.
It is much more complicated for Derby County.
They are above Middlesbrough with just one point and Middlesbrough is one point ahead of Bristol city.
The question yet to be answered is: will Derby County be able to keep their spot, especially with Middlesbrough and Bristol City closely behind?
Derby County are currently 6th on the table.
Having won just three out of their last five games, their possibility of wining their match against Swansea City is not so high.
Swansea City has gone through the last five games with two wins.
Though they have no chance of getting into the top six spot, a win from them in the next match will drop Derby County out of the top six.
Derby County has so much at stake in their next match and any unnecessary slip will remove them out of the running.
Middlesbrough sits at the 7th spot on the championship table but all hope is not lost for them.
Their next and final match greatly determines if they move to the sixth position.
However, they cannot rely on a great performance alone. Middlesbrough has to pray that Derby County drop points in their game. If not, Middlesbrough stands no chance.
Things are looking up for Middlesbrough lately. They had four wins in their last five matches. If they continue with this winning streak, they just might get themselves a championship playoff position.

Middlesbrough might be contending for the 6th spot, but if they are not careful, they might end up switching places with Bristol city.
Bristol City sits at the 8th spot on the table.
Things are not really looking good for them. They have lost three of their last five matches.
They are however set to play against Hull City who haven’t been doing so well recently.
Hull City have had three loses and just one win in their last five matches.
Bristol City’s chances are quite low, but if they can play their game well, they just might have a shot at the 6th spot.
