Who will miss out on the play-offs?
Portsmouth and Leicester City look virtually home and dry for the automatic promotion places to the Premiership, writes Tony Garnett.
The tussle for the next four play-off places is still being keenly fought with Nottingham Forest, who have a tough-looking away programme, and Wolverhampton Wanderers looking the most likely to be caught by one of the chasing pack.
Portsmouth are so consistent that there looks to be no stopping them from taking the title, even if Ipswich Town can lower their colours at Portman Road on April 19.
