The Championship weekend

Best and worst case scenarios

Cardiff could find themselves promoted bar a mathematical improbability today if results go the right way. On the flip side the club could still need seven points and be looking over their shoulder.

The action started last night when Leicester drew 2 - 2 with Birmingham City.

Today their are ten fixtures but as far as Cardiff are concerned only three matter.

Cardiff v Nottingham ForestIpswich v HullPeterborough v Watford

City hold a six point lead over Hull and a nine point lead over Watford.

The best that can happen today is cardiff win and Watford lose. That would leave the Bluebirds 12 points ahead with 4 games to go. The worst that can happen is Cardiff lose and Watford win to close the gap on 3rd place to six points with four games to play. Still heavilly weighted in City's favour but it would make things a little more nervous.

Oficially the poinst total required is 7. Hopefully by 5pm today that will be significantly reduced.
