Sheffield Wednesday are preparing to upset the odds tonight and grab a vital advantage in the first leg of the Championship play-off semi-final against Brighton.
But is history on the Owls’ side? Do the team in 6th place go up more often, or is it usually 3rd that gets the upper hand?
Well, here are the stats - and they aren’t on Wednesday’s side. The 6th placed team has triumphed just once in the past decade, when Blackpool beat Cardiff in the final in 2010 - but history, as they say, is all in the past...
Here are the teams who triumphed in the Championship play-offs in each of the past 10 years - and where they finished:
2005-2006: 3rd Derby County
2006-07: 3rd Watford
2007-08: 3rd Hull
2008-09: 5th Burnley
2009-10: 6th Blackpool
2010-11 3rd Swansea
2011-12: 3rd West Ham
2012-13: 5th Crystal Palace
2013-14: 4th QPR
2014-15: 3rd Norwich
Do you think the Owls can do it?
