Who can be promoted, relegated and play-off spots this weekend in English football? (23 April)

    It’s that time again, we look at who can be promoted, relegated and get in those play-off spots this weekend in English football.

    The amount of games decreasing very quickly and it could turn out be very busy few days of presentations, celebrations and no doubt many drowning their sorrows.

    Thankfully we are enduring this time of the season much more normally compared with the last campaign which saw some leagues standings based on PPG (points-per-game) and fans turning to official statements to find out the fate of their team.

    Enough chit chat, now time to see this weekend’s permutations from across English football, find out below…

    – Tottenham will qualify for Europe if they win the Carabao Cup

    If Tottenham win the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, they will qualify for the play-off round of the new Europa Conference League, unless they have already qualified for Europe by virtue of their league position.

    If the latter happens – or if Manchester City (who are already in the Champions League) win the final – that Conference League place will revert to the league.

    – Norwich will be champions if they win and Watford fail to win.

    Norwich have already won promotion back to the Premier League, but missed their first chance to top it with the title in midweek as they lost at home to their nearest rivals Watford.

    Should the Canaries win at QPR and Watford fail to win at home to Millwall, Daniel Farke’s side will be champions on Saturday with two games to spare.

    – Watford will be promoted if they win their game. A point will be enough if Bournemouth draw with Brentford in early game.

    Watford are on the verge of joining Norwich in completing an immediate return to the top flight. A win for them against Millwall will be enough for them, whatever happens elsewhere.

    If Bournemouth and Brentford draw in the lunchtime kick off on Saturday, then Watford will only need a draw to seal their promotion.

    – Sheffield Wed will be relegated if they lose & Derby win.
    – Wycombe will be relegated if Derby better their result.

    Both Sheffield Wednesday and Wycombe got big wins in midweek to keep their aims of survival alive.

    Wednesday go into the weekend on 39 points, four adrift of safety with three games to go, while Wycombe are on 37 points in the Championship table. Both their situations are made slightly more complicated by the fact the other side in the relegation zone Rotherham, also on 39 points, have two games in hand on everyone around them.

    On Saturday, however, both depend on Derby (43 points) to drop points. Wednesday will be relegated if they lose at Middlesbrough and Derby win at home to Birmingham.

    Wycombe will be relegated back to League One at the first time of asking if Derby simply better their result at Cardiff. – Fan reaction to the latest football news, gossip & funnies

    – Hull will be promoted if they win.

    It was such a bleak relegation for the Tigers as they fell apart in the second half of 2020, but they stuck with Grant McCann despite a backlash from fans and he has steered them to the verge of an immediate return to the Championship.

    With three games remaining, they are four points clear of Gillingham in second and, more importantly, 11 clear of Sunderland in third – although both sides do still have a game in hand on Hull.

    A win on Saturday at Lincoln – who are level on points with Sunderland and still have two games in hand on Hull – would guarantee promotion. Anything other than three points and the wait goes on at least a little longer.

    – Bristol Rovers will go down if they fail to win or Wigan avoid defeat.
    – Swindon will have an ‘R’ placed next to their name if they lose or Wigan better their result.
    – Northampton will be relegated if they lose and Wimbledon & Wigan both win.

    Four sides get relegated from League One, and three of them could be decided on Saturday.

    Bristol Rovers are bottom of the table and already look set for relegation, nine points from safety with just three games to play. If they fail to win at Portsmouth in the 1pm kick-off they are down. But even if they win they will be down should Wigan – in 20th – avoid defeat at home to Burton at 3pm.

    Swindon, who sit 23rd, will be another team with eyes on Wigan’s game. They are seven points off safety, and will be down if they lose at MK Dons, or if Wigan better their result.

    Northampton are 21st, one place above Rochdale – Dale will survive this weekend whatever happens due to their game in hand on Wigan and all the other sides in the bottom four – and four points off safety.

    If Northampton lose and AFC Wimbledon – who are five points clear of the Cobblers in the League One table and heading to Ipswich on Saturday – and Wigan both win, then they will be down. – Fan reaction to the latest football news, gossip & funnies

    – Cambridge will be promoted if they win.

    While Watford and Hull look to complete immediate returns to the division above, it is a different story for Cambridge. They were in non-League as recently as 2014, and haven’t played in the third tier of English football since 2002.

    Cambridge are five points clear of Morecambe in fourth place, and will be certain of promotion if they win at home against Stevenage on Saturday. A win will be enough with two games to play afterwards, with Morecambe and Bolton, currently in third, to face each other on Saturday. It means that, if Cambridge win, they could not both gather enough points between now and the end of the season to knock them out of the top three.

    – Grimsby are down if they lose and Barrow avoid defeat, or if they draw, Scunthorpe & Colchester avoid defeat and Barrow win.
    – Southend will be relegated if they fail to win.

    Grimsby and Southend, are battling the avoid relegation and could both fall through the trapdoor and into non league this Saturday.

    Grimsby are bottom of the League Two table, nine points adrift of safety with four games to play. They will be relegated if they lose at Oldham and Barrow – the side in 22nd also with four to play – avoid defeat at promotion-chasing Tranmere.

    They are eight points adrift of Barrow and have played a game more, which means anything but victory at home to Leyton Orient will condemn them to relegation. – Fan reaction to the latest football news, gossip & funnies
