Sheffield United may be sitting on 3rd place but it’s just on goal difference. The team has equal points with Leeds and Middlesbrough which makes them a prime candidate for the direct promotion places. The Blades are looking solid in all parts of the field and can be dangerous to any opponent.

Midweek Sheffield were denied the top spot by Stoke City. Experienced striker Leon Clarke gave the blades the lead after 70 minutes but the team couldn’t hold on to it. Stoke managed to get an equalizer just minutes before the end.

Wigan Athletic occupies the golden middle of the table. The newly promoted team so far enjoys its return to the EFL Championship and shows some decent performances. Latics have some scoring issued though and that separates them from the top half teams. They have scored only 16 goals in their opening 14 games this season.

Midweek Wigan succumbed to a 2-1 defeat against Millwall at the Den. Latics opened the score as The Lions scored themselves an own goal. Then Wigan had the chance to put the game to rest but Windass missed a penalty kick. Everything went bad for them following the miss and Millwall made a complete turnaround eventually winning the game with 2-1.
