We always knew that the Championship was an incredibly tight, closely-fought affair, but we were shocked by an infographic which shows just how slim the margins are between success and failure.

The football analytics experts at Experimental 3-6-1 have produced an infographic which charts the possible positions that each Championship club could find themselves in after the weekend fixtures.

For mid-table clubs like Fulham (11th), Ipswich (12th), Preston (13th) and Leeds (14th), the possible swings are truly dramatic.

Any of these teams could find themselves as high as 7th - just one spot outside the play-off positions - or as low as 20th - only two positions clear of the relegation zone.

Rock bottom Rotherham are the one club guaranteed to remain in the current position, but their fellow drop zone teams Cardiff and Wigan could both climb well out of the bottom three.

It’s equally tight at the other end of the table, with Newcastle, Norwich, Brighton and Huddersfield all in with a shout of going top. Check out the remarkable infographic below.
