Two matches this week for the clubs in the Championship, and we had some unexpected results. Only four teams didn’t move in this update to our mid-week Power Rankings. We also have a new number one team in the Rankings, even if the top of the league table hasn’t changed.

(UPDATED) EFL Championship – Week 7 Slate

The Championship will see each team playing two matches this week, and we’ll try to keep this updated throughout the week as games complete, and the number in parenthesis before each team in their current spot in the Weekly Power Rankings, and we’ll probably publish an updated Power Rankings after the midweek games are completed as well.

Home teams are listed first, and winners will be indicated in bold. In the event of a draw, both teams will be placed in italics. Only one match per team this week, with one match on Friday night and the remainder on Saturday.

EFL Championship – Week 7 Power Rankings

It seemed that some of the teams this week wanted to remain on break, and results indicated as much. Lot’s of movement up and down in both these Power Rankings and the League Table. Only four teams stayed in the same position as last week, and half the clubs moving down an average of two spots. 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.
