EFL Championship – Week 6 Power Rankings

Despite the lack of games this week due to an international break, I’m still going to present the updated Power Rankings for the week. This past weekend’s slate was without a lot of major upsets, so there were minimal moves around the rankings for most teams, with a max shift of two spots and 10 teams staying put. As I started to do last week, I am including the actual table position for the clubs as well, if only to see how my rankings have shifted to align with the club’s actual placement.

Bristol City was the only team to move up two spots in the Power Rankings, mostly due to their three consecutive wins over the past two weeks. They are currently the team with the biggest discrepancy between Power Ranking and table position as well, and are currently in the last playoff position due to point differential over Swansea City.

Nottingham Forest finally lost a match, after starting the season undefeated through five matches, albeit with four draws among those matches. However, they did find success this week in the EFL Cup, defeating Premier League team Newcastle 3-1. Alas, these rankings only apply to Championship matches, otherwise they probably would have found themselves at least staying still for another week. Instead, they have finally fallen in line with their table position, where they will stay until after next week’s matches.

Until next time…
