If so then historically the Royals finished the season in what is traditionally the Play-Offs' most successful league placing.
A third of all Play-Off winners in the Premier League era, eight in total, finished the regular season in the top Play-Off spot.
That’s more promotions from what is usually third - in 1994/95 it was second - than from any other finishing league position.
It’s also twice as many promotions as by teams who finished in the last slot (usually sixth).
However, cause for optimism for Town is the fact teams who finish in the third Play-Off spot (fifth) also have a good record.
As many as seven teams who finished where Huddersfield Town have done this season have made it to the Premier League.
