The early favourites for relegation from the Championship

Championship is one of the most perilous football leagues in the world, let's predict the relegations.

Blackpool CLUB championship

The Championship is one of the most perilous football leagues in the world. On one hand, the shimmering prize of promotion to the Premier League stands as the ultimate goal for every club, but on the other, the threat of relegation to the third tier is a worrying prospect for any side mired in the lower reaches of the table.

The scrap to avoid dropping into League One is always hotly contested, and this season will be no different, with a number of clubs hoping to defy the Championship relegation odds from Betfair and remain in the division. Let’s take a look at four teams who will be desperate to avoid the dreaded drop.

Derby County

Things simply haven’t been going well at Derby County. Mismanagement by the club’s hierarchy and financial restraints have left manager Wayne Rooney with a real test on his hands this season, and it’s no surprise that the Championship betting tips have Derby as the favourites to go down.

However, the Rams won’t go down without a fight, and two victories from their opening five games suggest that there is still some spirit within the ranks. If Rooney can use his vast experience as a player to inspire his dressing room, they could build some momentum and escape the clutches of a relegation dogfight.


It’s no surprise that the three promoted sides are being tipped to go straight back down to League One, and Blackpool are seen by many as the side with the smallest chance of staying up. It’s refreshing to see the Tangerines back in the second tier after the off-field struggles the club has endured — and indeed the emotional strife placed on supporters in that time.

It’s over 10 years since Blackpool played in the Premier League, and while supporters might dream of a return one day, this season the focus is on keeping their head above the murky waters of relegation.

Peterborough United

Having yo-yoed between League One and the Championship for several years in the late 2000s and early 2010s, Peterborough United have since been made to wait eight seasons to get back to the second tier. Their return to the Championship has been a long time coming, and Darren Ferguson’s side will be relishing the chance to impress.This is Ferguson’s third spell in charge of the Posh, and they’ve showed some early promise this season already by picking up four points, although further improvement will be needed.

Hull City

In reality, Hull City are too big a club to be playing in League One, but their shocking performances in the 2019-20 campaign consigned them to a first season in the third tier since the 2004-05 campaign. Thanks to the tireless efforts of manager Grant McCann, they made it back to the Championship at the first time of asking, and now the pressure is on for the Tigers to re-establish themselves as a force in the second tier. Two wins and a draw from their first five matches suggests they have a chance of earning a solid finish this season, but it’s all too easy to get swept up in a bad run of form in the Championship, and Hull must be wary.
