Wigan celebrate after winning the title

The season is about to come to an end in the all four divisions of English club football – Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two, there comes various questions which are yet to be answered.

We will thoroughly analyse the title contenders, relegation dogfights, the key battles for the promotion and the chase to snatch a spot in the play-offs according to SkySports.

Premier League:

As Tottenham drew with Chelsea on Monday at the Stamford Bridge, Leicester City have won the Premier League title, having a seven points lead with two matches yet to play. The Foxes will lift the trophy on Saturday Night at home against Everton.

To guarantee the second spot in the league table, Spurs need to grab at least four points from their remaining two matches but still there is a possibility that Arsenal or Manchester City can be equal in points when the season ends.

Manchester United and West Ham could still manage a top four spot. Manchester City are just four points ahead of Manchester United and West Ham are trailing by five points, both with a game in hand.

Aston Villa have already been mathematically relegated and two other clubs from Newcastle, Sunderland and Norwich are will be joining them by the end of the season.

Championship:

The 1-0 win over QPR at the Turf Moor has confirmed the promotion of Burnley. On the other hand Brighton drew 1-1 with Derby County and Middlesbrough drew 2-2 at Birmingham. With Burnley at the top(90), there is not much difference between them and Middlesbrough, Brighton, as both of them are on 88 points. Burnley can seal the title glory by beating Charlton at the Valley.

In the final game-week fixture of the Championship football, Middlesbrough face Brighton at the Riverside, in a winner-takes-it-all match to decide which club will get the final automatic promotion and which club will join the play-offs.

Sheffield Wednesday have already confirmed their place in the top six of the table on Saturday at the expense of Cardiff City. Thus Sheffield Wednesday, Hull City and Derby County will join one of the title challengers in the play-offs.

However there are no doubts over the relegation zone, as Charlton, MK Dons and Bolton have already been relegated.

League One automatic promotion:

League One club Wigan have confirmed their return to the Championship football with a convincing 4-0 win over Blackpool, and Burton is the most favorite to join Wigan in the second tier.

Final game-week is closing in and Burton are already leading Walsall by three points and have a positive goal difference of three, which might be helpful at the end of the season. Burton will be at Doncaster on Sunday, meanwhile Walsall will visit Port Vale.

League One play-offs

Millwall and Bradford, both of them have confirmed their place in the top six of the table, but for the final play-off spot, the race on between Barnsley, Scunthorpe and Gillingham.

Barnsley will meet Wigan, while Scunthorpe, who are also on 71 points going neck to neck with Barnsley will visit Sheffield United in the final game-week fixture of the  League One.

League One relegation

One team from each set of teams will get relegated: 1) Doncaster or Blackpool and 2) Crewe and Colchester.

Doncaster will host Burton, and Blackpool will visit Peterborough, while Fleetwood face Crewe in the final fixtures.

League Two promotion

Northampton Town have already snatched the glory of winning the title, but there are still three teams who can get promoted along with the champion.

There is a tough race among these three teams which can make:

2nd Accrington 84 points; plays Stevenage

3rd Oxford 83 points; plays Wycombe
