Race for the Premier League assessed: Who will join Fulham?

Race for the Premier League assessed: Who will join Fulham?

The enthralling race for promotion from the Championship to the Premier League has entered its final fortnight.

Leaders Fulham secured their immediate return to the top flight with a 3-0 win over Preston on April 19, with second-placed Bournemouth trailing by nine points.

Huddersfield, Nottingham Forest, Luton and Sheffield United occupy the remaining top-six places and up to five teams below them still harbour a mathematical chance of finishing within them.

Here, we take a look at the runners and riders, their form and their key remaining fixtures as they bid to break free of the Championship’s clutches and reach the Premier League…
