This is where Sheffield Wednesday would finish if the league table was based on attendance figures

The Championship table would look a little different if teams were ranked based on their average home attendance so far this season.

With nine matches down, Leeds United would still top the standings if attendance rather than points determined the final table but Sheffield Wednesday would be one position higher than they are currently.

Hillsborough

Hillsborough

The average number of fans through the turnstiles at Hillsborough this campaign has been 23,042, which would put them 9th in the league.

Elland Road has had the most fans so far this term with 33,154 per match, followed by Aston Villa’s Villa Park on 32,262 and Nottingham Forest’s City Ground with 27,266.

In the real league table, Aston Villa’s slow start to the season means they are down in 13th place, while Forest are 9th.

Sheffield United, currently 4th in the Championship, would slide to 6th place with average an average gate of 24,383 so far in 2018/19.

Stoke City and West Brom, who were both relegated from the Premier League last season, would be sandwiched between the two Sheffield clubs.

The Baggies sit in 7th place while the Potters occupy 8th with an average of 23,805 fans so far this season.
