After a third week that saw some eye opening results – it’s not often you see a team concede seven goals to a team within their same league – here is how I see the teams heading into the slate of games scheduled for this week.
Note: Records presented as W-D-L

Rank Team Record Last Week Change
1 Leeds United 3-0-0 2 1↑
2 Middlesbrough 3-1-0 3 1↑
3 Brentford 2-1-0 5 2↑
4 West Bromwich Albion 2-1-1 7 3↑
5 Swansea City 2-1-0 1 4↓
6 Aston Villa 2-1-0 4 2↓
7 Preston North End 1-1-1 6 1↓
8 Sheffield United 2-1-1 9 1↑
9 Bolton Wanderers 2-1-0 11 2↑
10 Millwall 1-2-0 13 3↑
11 Nottingham Forest 1-3-0 12 1↑
12 Wigan Athletic 1-1-1 10 2↓
13 Derby County 1-0-2 8 5↓
14 Stoke City 0-2-1 14
15 Ipswich Town 0-2-1 15
16 Blackburn Rovers 1-2-0 19 3↑
17 Norwich City 0-1-2 16 1↓
18 Sheffield Wednesday 0-1-2 17 1↓
19 Birmingham City 0-2-1 22 3↑
20 Rotherham United 1-0-2 18 2↓
21 Bristol City 0-2-1 20 1↓
22 Hull City 0-1-2 21 1↓
23 Reading 0-0-3 24 1↑
24 Queens Park Rangers 0-0-3 23 1↓

The rankings are kind of a muddle in the middle, with only two teams staying pat from last week’s rankings. The teams with big moves down include Swansea City, our former number one, who moves down four spots after a tie with much lower ranked Birmingham City. The biggest mover of the week was Derby County, which moved down five spots after losing to Millwall, albeit on the road.
Queens Park Rangers continue to plummet, and if not for there only being 24 teams, would have been even lower, especially after losing to West Bromwich Albion 7-1. Therefore, QPR and Reading have swapped spots as the only pointless teams in the Championship.
Until next time…
