Championship Blues

Relegation Permutations

Blackburn face Brentford
at Griffin Park
and will survive
if they better
Nottingham Forest’s result.

If they match Forest’s result,
Rovers must effect
a two-goal swing
on Forest to finish above them
as Forest’s goal difference
is better by one
and they have also scored
nine more goals.

Blackburn will go down
if both clubs draw.

Birmingham will be safe
if they win at Bristol City
regardless of results
elsewhere.

However if Blackburn
and Forest both win
anything less than a victory
for Blues would send them down.
A draw would not be enough
in that scenario
as they have the worst goal difference
of the three clubs
who would all finish
on 51 points.

We’re good at it,
aren’t we,
the English.
Like football.
