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.

(UPDATED) EFL Championship – Week 22 Slate

Championship Week 22 Fixtures/Results

This week’s Championship action sees a lot of matches between clubs with some room between them. Last time this happened, a lot of the lower-ranked clubs ended up prevailing, throwing our rankings into chaos. I would hope that this doesn’t happen again, but the Championship was been a strange beast all season.

Per usual, the number in parenthesis before each club is where they fell on our Week 22 Power Rankings. Home clubs are listed first, and will be hosting both matches on the week. We’ll keep this updated throughout the week, with winners indicated in bold, while matches that end in draws will have their clubs italicized.

Championship Week 18 Fixtures/Results We saw a lot of movement in our Power Rankings after a Week 17 that saw a lot of upsets. This week appears to be no different, with a lot of matches between clubs that are within a few spots of each other.

(UPDATED) EFL Championship – Week 17 Slate

Championship Week 17 Fixtures/Results

We saw a lot of movement in our Power Rankings after a Week 16 that saw a lot of upsets. This week appears to be no different, with a lot of matches between clubs that are within a few spots of each other. But it’s also another week where top clubs Norwich City and Leeds United should remain at the top of the league table, with a potential expansion of their current lead due to many other top ten clubs facing off this week.

Per usual, the number in parenthesis before each club is where they fell on our Week 17 Power Rankings. Home clubs are listed first. We’ll keep this updated throughout the weekend, with winning indicated in bold, while matches that end in draws will have their clubs italicized.

EFL Championship – Week 16 Power Rankings

With a draw on Monday night, Week 15 of the Championship came to a close, with all the clubs playing twice. As I anticipated last week, the double-barrelled action had a dramatic impact on the Power Rankings, with only four clubs staying put from last week.

Most clubs this week also had split results; only four clubs either won twice or lost twice, and no club drew twice. As always, these rankings are an attempt to get a pulse on the current state of each club, and don’t always match the club’s position in the league table.

EFL Championship – Week 12 Power Rankings

Two games this week for the clubs across the Championship, and as a result, we’ve seen a lot of movement from last week’s Power Rankings. So much movement, in fact, that only one team stayed in the same spot in this week’s rankings.

As previously mentioned, we try to base the rankings only on matches played in the Championship. However, with four clubs playing in EFL Cup matches this week – Norwich City, Nottingham Forest, Derby County, and Middlesbrough – success there (three of the four will be playing Premier League clubs) might boost them next week a little more than what happens in league play next weekend.
