Championship could be south of the river show

Depending on whether West Ham win the play off finals, the three South London teams - Charlton, Crystal Palace and Millwall - could be the only representatives from the capital in the Championship next season. Although they lost 3-2 in the sensational game at Manchester City, QPR survive in the top flight as Bolton did not do enough at Stoke to displace them. The Super Hoops will be able to strut their stuff in the top flight for another year without the humiliation of a visit to SE7.

It looks as if the Championship will have quite a northern feel next year with plenty of away trips up the M1 and M6. Indeed, if Blackpool fail to beat West Ham and either Sheffield United or Huddersfield Town win the League 1 play off place, half the clubs will be from 'oop North (not including the Midlands).

Manchester City beat Charlton to the title by three points in 1936/37, our best chance ever of winning it, but congratulations to them on an amazing victory.
