The 2014/15 Championship campaign at a glance

27 May 2014

Following the conclusion of the Football League play-offs over the Bank Holiday weekend, the runners and riders for the 2014/15 Championship campaign are now finalised.

Rotherham United clinched the last spot in a dramatic Wembley clash with Leyton Orient which was settled on penalties after the Millers fought back from two goals down.

Striker Alex Revell was the man of the moment scoring the goals to get Steve Evans’ side back in the game, with his second goal one of the strikes of the season – a looping volley from 40 yards.

The Millers join Wolves and Brentford, who secured automatic promotion during the regular campaign.

Wolves achieved a new club record total of 103 points, romping back into the second tier at the first attempt.

Brentford, who agonisingly missed out on automatic promotion on the final day of 2012/13 banished those memories with a superb campaign last time around.

Mark Warburton’s men finished eight points clear in second position and will return to the second tier after a 21-year absence.

Coming down into the Championship from the Premier League is Cardiff, Fulham and Norwich.

The Bluebirds found the going tough in England’s top flight and despite some eye-catching results against the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Newcastle and local rivals Swansea, the Welsh outfit finished bottom of the Premier League pile.

For Fulham, relegation to the Championship has ended their 13-season stay at the top level.

The Cottagers’ relegation was confirmed in their 4-1 defeat to Stoke on 3 May in a season that saw Martin Jol, Rene Meulensteen and Felix Magath at the Craven Cottage helm.

And finally, Norwich make up the six teams that will be new to the Championship in 2014/15.

The club endured a tough finish to the campaign, losing six of their final seven games.

An unlikely 0-0 draw at Chelsea in the Canaries’ penultimate game meant their fate would be decided on the last day, but taking goal difference into account, the club were effectively already down.

Don’t forget, the fixture list for the 2014/15 campaign is released on Wednesday 18 June – just over three weeks away!
