How Championship would look for Stoke City, Leeds United and West Brom if fixtures had gone ahead


Stoke City continued their unbeaten run with a draw at Reading and vital home win over Middlesbrough – at least according to the Pools Panel.

The Panel has been a Saturday afternoon institution 1963 – with Gordon Banks a long-serving expert – and has today confirmed it will continue to operate as normal despite Premier League and EFL fixtures being postponed due to the coronavirus. An announcement this morning made it clear that there will be no action until at least April 30 – so there are a lot of games to predict.

Results have already been put together for the matches which were postponed last weekend and in mid-week, except for Fulham’s clash with Brentford which should have been on the Friday night.

Chairman Tony Green, the former Scotland international, has been joined by Liverpool legend Ian Callaghan and former Manchester United player David Sadler to run the rule over the Championship programme.

Four extra points would have been welcome for Michael O’Neill’s side in the fight to stay up – and would have taken the points tally up to 46, within a couple of wins of safety with what would have been seven games remaining. They would have been six clear of the drop zone.

Here are all the results predicted so far – and how they would make the Championship look. We have generously given Fulham and Brentford a point apiece for their voided Pools game.
