Four top contenders for the 2018 Championship crown

02-03-2018

The race to reach the Premier League is really heating up, as the top Championship sides battle it out at this crucial point of the season in order to potentially get into the top tier division.

There is also the small matter of trying to avoid a daunting drop down the divisions through relegation from The Championship, but the title race and fight for playoff positions is really beginning to take shape now in 2018.

It`s Wolverhampton Wanderers who are rallying ahead of their domestic rivals after a surge in recently impressive results, but there are plenty of sides still hot on their trail and aiming to dethrone them at the table`s summit.

Although, as it is in the second tier, finishing second will secure an automatic spot in the Premier League next term, something every side in the current race is attempting to earn in the final few months of the long and gruelling campaign. Here are the top four contenders for promotion to the top tier next season.

Wolves

Wolves are leading the way in the division and look more than likely of seeing out such an admirable feat this term.

The current second-tier league leaders are now the odds-on 1/10 favourites in the Championship betting to prevail outright this current campaign, after getting themselves into a highly promising position at this stage of the season.

Under the guidance of manager Nuno Espirito Santo, Wolves are flying high at a vital time, and what makes the upcoming run-in so interesting is that the top four teams must all still face each other in the final games.

Cardiff City



Second placed Cardiff City are hot on Wolves` trail this year and are seeking that all important and more reassuring automatic promotion place to secure their return to the top-flight.

They are regarded at 9/1 to go on and replace Wolves at the top of the league to lift the Championship crown this current campaign, but they would undoubtedly settle for safe passage to the top tier via second spot.

Neil Warnock`s Bluebirds have been on a rampant run of form in recent weeks and likely more than capable of swooping for an automatic promotion place.

Aston Villa

Aston Villa are back to winning ways in the second tier division and have experienced coach Steve Bruce to thank for some top-notch results.

The West Midlands outfit are also aiming for that beneficial automatic spot but have potentially decisive encounters against closest rivals Cardiff City and Derby County in their campaign run in.

Villa are seen as 25/1 outsiders to go all the way and win The Championship title this season under Bruce, after their impressive and highly encouraging domestic results.

Derby County

Out of the sides aiming for top spot and an automatic position towards the Premier League, Derby County look the most likely to miss out after some underwhelming results.

The Rams simply need to get back to their best if they are going to challenge but Gary Rowett is the man who can overcome this poor spell.

There are others in the frame for promotion, possibly via the playoffs, but these four outfits are looking most likely of becoming a Premier League club for the 2018/19 campaign.
