Concise News reports that in a match where emotions ran high, an early opener from Onel Hernandez was consolidated by a Teemu Pukki brace, gifting the Canaries some breathing space at the summit.

Leeds United trail closely after dropping two points against John Obi Mikel’s Middlesbrough, but it could have been far worse with Kalvin Phillips scoring an equaliser in, incredibly, the 11th minute of added time.

The Championship is hotting up at both ends of the table, but come Sunday 5 May, where will each team finish in the table of 24?

Supercomputer has predicted which team will come out tops, and its Norwich!

The general-purpose computer tips Daniel Farke’s men to accrue 95 points.

For Leeds United, they are expected to secure the other automatic promotion spot, but will supposedly lose eight more points on the apparent champions.

West Brom currently sit in fourth but will miss out on second by one point, the computer suggests, just edging the Blades on goal difference.

Middlesbrough and Bristol City are also predicted to attain playoff spots, meaning Derby County, Nottingham Forest and Birmingham all miss out on returns to the top level of the English football league system.

At the other end of the table, Bolton are expected to finish rock bottom despite leading current occupiers of that position, Ipswich, by five points.

The Tractor Boys, nevertheless, will ostensibly finish 23rd, with Rotherham also joining them in League One next season.

That means Reading escape the drop alongside Millwall and Wigan.
