New predicted final Championship table after Leeds United win v Hull City, fresh Leicester City, Ipswich Town and Southampton twists

Leeds United put themselves back into the Championship’s automatic promotion places with victory against Hull City – and a fresh verdict has now been cast on the division’s final predicted finishing positions.

Key automatic promotion rivals Leicester City and Ipswich Town both trailed in their Monday fixtures against Norwich City and Southampton respectively but the Foxes and Tractor Boys fought back to claim victories, Ipswich with a 97th-minute twist as Jeremy Sarmiento bagged a very late winner in a 3-2 success.

Leeds consequently needed to beat Hull just to move back into second place and eventually bagged a 3-1 triumph amid incredible late scenes at Elland Road. The victory thanks to Sam Byram’s strike, Crysencio Summerville’s penalty and a Dan James scorcher from the half-way line has left Leeds in the second automatic promotion spot, one point behind leaders Ipswich and a point ahead of third-placed Leicester City who began the day with a 3-1 win at home to Southampton.

Leicester, though, have a game in hand. There are now 11 points back to fourth-placed Southampton who have an extra game in hand. Nevertheless, the Saints are 12 points behind second-placed Leeds who they have two games in hand on.

Following Monday’s twists and turns, the bookmakers have cast a fresh verdict on how they think the final table will look and here is a full run-down based on the very latest title prices with odds for relegation used to determine sides expected to end up in the bottom half and promotion prices for the others.
