Rotherham United, now six points clear in 21st, are top of the division's form table after a big change in fortune since Neil Warnock arrived at the New York Stadium.

Both Bolton Wanderers and Charlton Athletic are odds on to be playing League One football next season - the Addicks are 1/66 with several outlets to go down - but what of the other candidates?

Huddersfield Town

Town are 50/1 with SkyBet to be the third team to be relegated from the Championship.

Defeat to Middlesbrough doesn't seem to have convinced the bookies to dramatically shorten the odds, with other winnable fixtures on the horizon, as well as an eight point cushion over MK Dons in the final relegation place.

Fulham

Only a point behind Town, Fulham are 25/1 to go down. Like the Terriers, they have no problems scoring, but have struggled to keep out the opposition at the other end.

The Whites have won two of their last three games, drawing the other.

Bristol City

SkyBet have priced Bristol City at 14/1 to join Bolton and Charlton in League One. Like Fulham, they have a seven point cushion over MK Dons, but their goal difference is far inferior to the Londoners.

A second half goal from Peter Odemwingie helped them earn a crucial point against Rotherham on Tuesday night.

Rotherham

The revival at Rotherham, spearheaded by former Town boss Neil Warnock, has reduced their chances of succumbing to relegation and SkyBet now have them at 11/2 to go down.

The draw with Bristol City was their seventh game unbeaten, a run which includes victories over Leeds United, Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday.

MK Dons

The bookies believe it is the current occupiers of the relegation places who are doomed to the drop. MK Dons, who occupy 22nd, are 1/7 to join Bolton and Charlton.

An early goal against Wolves sparked fears among the Town faithful, but they went on to lose 2-1 on Tuesday and are winless in their last five.
