Visual Cann tables: EFL, 29 Oct 2016
Here are the updated visual league tables, explained here if you haven’t seen them before. Put simply, they’re intended as a more useful way of looking at the league table by separating the teams in proportion to how many points they are on course to win if they keep earning them at the same rate. This isn’t intended to be any sort of prediction: just presenting the basic information in a league table more visually.
It’s worth flagging that this doesn’t include the Sunday match between Birmingham and Aston Villa.
Huddersfield‘s heavy defeat at Fulham puts some distance between them and the top two of Newcastle and Brighton, who both won to continue comfortably on course for automatic promotion as things stand. Ipswich’s late equaliser against Rotherham leaves the Millers uncomfortably adrift at the bottom.
Bristol Rovers‘ unfortunate-looking defeat to Peterborough has allowed the top four to extend their lead over the chasing pack, with each recording a victory. With only three clubs capable of being promoted there’ll be disappointment for someone! At the bottom both Chesterfield and Shrewsbury are lagging behind the rest after a late defeat and a draw respectively.
The top two of Plymouth and Carlisle recorded narrow wins to extend their advantages at the top as Doncaster and Luton could only draw. Newport‘s shock win at Accrington narrowed the gap between the Exiles and safety but there’s still plenty of work to be done.
