Championship 2016/17 table: Super Computer predicts end of season final places – *February update*

With two-thirds of the Championship season played, the table is finally starting to take shape.

Many people expected surprise packages Huddersfield Town and Leeds United to drop off the pace, while big-spending Aston Villa have underachieved in their attempts to make an instant return to the Premier League.

Brighton and Newcastle have been fighting for top spot all season, while Norwich’s recent defeat at Burton leaves a seven-point gap between sixth [the final play-off place] and seventh.

At the other end of the table, barring a miracle upturn in form like last season under Neil Warnock, Rotherham United look destined for the drop and it is a question of who will be joining them in May.

Birmingham City continue to slide under Gianfranco Zola, while Bristol City and Aston Villa are on poor runs.

talkSPORT has decided to submit this season’s data into the Super Computer to see how the Championship table will look in May. At this stage, no one can say with any certainty, but our popular system has had a good go of predicting the final standings. Based on information available on February 20, 2016, take a look at how the Super Computer is predicting the final standings – from 24th to first – by clicking the right arrow, above.

The table, of course, should be taken with a pinch of salt! Anything can happen over the next three months, but it is always fun to speculate. Where do you think your team will finish? Share your thoughts by leaving a comment below…
