WE’RE reaching the business end of the 2018/19 season.
Clubs around the country are fighting relegation, for promotion or just bobbing along in mid-table – here’s how things currently stands with the ups and downs across England and Scotland.
Who has won promotion and been relegated in England?
STARTING at the top and there’s already been two confirmed relegations from the Premier League this term.
Both Huddersfield and Fulham will be playing Championship football next season, with the Terriers succumbing to the inevitable after a dismal run of just three wins in 32 games.
It’s not been much better for the Cottagers though who spent upwards of £100m in the summer, only to crash out of the top division after a 4-1 thrashing at Watford on April 2.
Top Four: TBC
Relegated: Huddersfield, Fulham.
THERE’S an almighty tussle going on to see who can reach the promised land of the Premier League.
Currently it’s Norwich who lead the way from the chasing pack, with Leeds and Sheffield United both flying the flag for Yorkshire and looking to bag an automatic promotion spot.
Down at the bottom, Ipswich are in big trouble and look doomed whilst Bolton, Millwall, Wigan, Rotherham and Reading are all scrapping to avoid the drop.
IT’S been a terrific season in England’s third-tier, which features one of the tightest relegation scraps in the country.
Luton look set for back-to-back promotions with Portsmouth, Barnsley and Sunderland all scrapping for the automatic places, whilst at the bottom only Bradford are currently the only side properly tailed off.
Anyone of around ten clubs could still be playing in League Two next season, it’s that tight.
ALL eyes are on Lincoln City as the Imps look to return to League One for the first time since 1999.
MK Dons, Bury, Mansfield and Tranmere are all scrapping for the automatic places, whilst at the bottom it looks like two to drop from Macclesfield, Yeovil and Notts County.
Who has won promotion and been relegated in Scotland?
CELTIC are looking on course to record an eight-straight SPL title after a run of last-gasp victories.
Neil Lennon’s side are miles clear of Rangers in second, whilst at the bottom St Mirren and Dundee are scrapping to avoid last place.
THE title is currently Ross County’s to lose, with the Staggies hoping to make an immediate return to the SPL.
Down at the other end, there’s a real fight going on to avoid the drop – Falkirk, Partick Thistle and Alloa are in the thick of it, whilst Queen of the South and Morton are not completely safe just yet.
Scottish League One
ARBROATH are marching towards promotion and can clinch the title with victory over Montrose on April 6.
Scottish League Two
IN Scotland’s fourth-tier, Peterhead lead the way and it’s their championship to lose going into a crunch match against Clyde.
With only the bottom club to drop, it’s a straight shootout between Berwick Rangers and Albion Rovers.
