x-clinched at least a playoff spot, but can still qualify for automatic promotion; R-clinched relegation to League One

*Ipswich Town was likely heading to relegation regardless, but failing to win in either match this past week clinched it with six matches remaining in the season. They remain above Bolton Wanderers in these Power Rankings, however, because Bolton has lost three in a row and has only scored six points over their last ten matches, while Ipswich Town has secured nine points in their last ten. Bolton will likely join the Tractor Boys in relegation next week with a match looming against red hot Aston Villa on Saturday.

Until next time…
