EFL Championship – Week 27 Slate

EFL Championship – Week 27 Scores & Fixtures For the second week in a row, clubs from the Championship will be playing throughout the week, though it’s not nearly as robust of a schedule as the one from last week, with singular matches on Tuesday and Wednesday. It makes sense, with the clubs across the … Read moreEFL Championship – Week 27 Slate

EFL Championship – Week 27 Power Rankings

It’s going to be a wild couple of weeks in the Championship. Like last week, we’ll see Championship matches on four different days this week. But that’s what has to happen when some clubs have played 31 matches, others 32, and the remainder 33.

With some clubs playing twice last week, the change from last week’s Power Rankings are a little more dramatic than they were last week, including a new team at the top after a midweek loss by our former number one club.

As always, we try to keep the rankings confined to action played in the Championship; even though Swansea City and Millwall have advanced to the FA Cup quarterfinals, that won’t have bearing on this week’s rankings.

(UPDATED) EFL Championship – Week 26 Slate

Championship Week 26 Fixtures/Results

This week will feature a lot of Championship clubs playing twice, while others will be taking a break from league play over the weekend to play their fifth round matches in the FA Cup, including one between Championship clubs Swansea City and Brentford. (The others playing in the FA Cup this weekend are Queens Park Rangers, Derby County, Millwall, and Bristol City).

As always, the numbers in parenthesis before the clubs is where they happen to fall in our weekly Power Rankings – which may not match where they fall on the league table. We’ll try to keep this post updated with results throughout the week, with the winning clubs in bold and draws indicated by italics. Home clubs are listed first.

EFL Championship – Week 26 Power Rankings

This past weekend didn’t result in a whole lot of changes from our last batch of Power Rankings, but with some of the Championship clubs playing twice this week, I don’t expect that to be the case next week.

The top eight (and bottom six) are all the same, and the biggest move up or down is only three spots. One club that was a recent favorite has fallen out of the top ten after losing twice in their last three matches, while the club with the best defense remains at the top despite their fifth place positioning on the league table. With 15ish matches left on the season, we still have half the league within a couple of matches for one of the playoff spots, so the home stretch should be fairly exciting.

(UPDATED) EFL Championship – Week 25 Slate

Championship Week 25 Fixtures/Results

After a discombobulated past couple of weeks in the Championship slate due to FA Cup action, we have the second consecutive week of a fairly normal schedule… before it all gets thrown out of whack for the rest of February. Nevertheless, this week has a lot of quality matchups that could either settle the league table a bit – or throw it into further chaos.

EFL Championship – Week 25 Power Rankings

It’s been two weeks since we last updated our Power Rankings, and we’ve only done that because of the strange schedule in the Championship over that time; last week, only the non-FA Cup particpants played last week, and this week was a full schedule (with four clubs playing on Tuesday), which resulted in all but eight clubs reaching 30 matches on the season.

It will likely be some time before all the clubs have the same amount of matches played now, so we’re not going to wait to update our rankings. As the rankings are more about recent trends and not overall performance – which is why table leaders Norwich City and Leeds United aren’t at the top – only playing once the past two weeks won’t damper their performance in these rankings.
