The lead at the top of the English Championship table has changed more times than most fans can remember this season. When it comes to intensity, England’s second-tier club football trumps most leagues in Europe.
The league features all the characteristics of an incredible football league. From the intensity of games played to the sheer brilliance of the under-rated stars plying their trade in the league, the English Championship is one of Europe’s best.
All of that is then spiced up by the race to gain promotion to the most-watched football league in the world, the Premier League. This season, that race has been keenly contested by at least four sides in the league. With only two automatic slots available and only 15 games left to be played in the regular season, every game is now a final for all clubs involved.

This week, all 24 teams will be in action across various centres in the U.K.
League-leaders, West Brom, will be hoping to extend their lead at the top of the table when they take on Reading away from home. The last five head-to-head meetings have featured three draws. West Brom will look to make it eight games without a clean sheet for the hosts and maintain the gap between themselves and the chasing pack, especially Leeds United.
Marco Bielsa’s men have a topsy-turvy season. Describing Leeds as inconsistent is not enough to illustrate how poor they’ve been in recent times. It’s a surprise they’re still in the running to win the championship title.
Leeds have lost four of their last five games (actually, five of their last six, if you consider their 1-0 loss to Arsenal in the FA Cup). Having won just one game since 2020 began, they will be hoping their fortunes can change when they face Brentford, the second-highest scorers in the league.

Fulham boast the best form (in the last five Championship games) in the league. With a run of four wins and just a draw during the time, Scott Parker’s men have joined the race to gain PL promotion. With four clean sheets in their last five, Fulham pose a strong threat to Millwall in their MatchDay 32 clash.
Preston’s 36 goals conceded is the worst of the top-six sides. However, they’ve remained unbeaten in their last five games. Furthermore, they will be boosted by their record against Stoke City as they head into the clash. Preston have not lost to Stoke City in their last six games.
With nine of the last 10 meetings between both sides featuring over 1,5 goals, Preston may be doing all the scoring when these two sides face off this week.
