Why does nobody want to go up?

You get the feeling that nobody wants to finish second in the Championship, many have been in an excellent position to make the second automatic place their own yet it’s still up for grabs. 

QPR are flying high, despite a little wobble over Christmas they are still eight points clear of near rivals Swansea. On Saturday, the Hoops beat Sven’s Leicester City 1-0 thanks to a late Ishmael Miller goal – The loss leaves the Swede’s side five points from the play-offs.

Swansea were shocked 1-0 by Scunthorpe, after Joe Garner’s 71st minute penalty. Ten minutes into the game against Sheffield United on 22nd February, Scunny were 2-0 down and looked to be heading back to League One – Instead they came back to win 3-2 and after Saturday’s impressive victory they are now just one point from safety. The Swans are still second but only after fierce rivals Cardiff lost.

The Bluebirds went down 2-0 at home to Ipswich after Jimmy Bullard’s brace, meanwhile Norwich failed to make the most of the visit of bottom of league side Preston as they drew 1-1 – They should’ve won but Wes Hoolahan missed a penalty.

At the beginning of February, it looked like Forest would take second place and maybe even top spot – but after losing to Hull yesterday and dropping points against Middlesbrough and Millwall they are now three points off second place. 

Hull and Burnley are the two form sides worth watching as they try to break into the play-off places. Watford will be pleased they have stopped their run of no wins in ten after Danny Graham scored the winner against Millwall.

Sheffield United lost again, this time they went down 1-0 to Portsmouth leaving Micky Adams still winless since taking over as boss.

With their next two games against Cardiff and QPR things are not looking good for Crystal Palace, having stayed up on the last day of last season this year they might not be so lucky.

There is a full programme during the week, the two big games see Burnley travel to Hull and Leicester host Norwich.
