No one will be at all surprised if the next visitors to the New York Stadium end up in the Championship. In fact, it will be one of the puzzles of the season if they don’t!
Wolverhampton Wanderers turn up next Saturday possibly top but certainly well clear, with Leyton Orient, in the two automatic promotion spots.
