If things weren't tough enough, on paper, Millwall have one of the toughest set of closing fixtures of any of the sides as the bottom end of the Championship table.

This is in stark contrast to Fulham, the team they hope to replace outside the relegation zone. The Cottagers have, in theory, the easier run-in.

The average current league position of the Lions final opponents is 10th, with tough games against the likes of Watford, Derby and Wolves.

Fulham face against fellow strugglers Wigan, Rotherham and Blackpool which could prove crucial in the quest for survival.

Rotherham's opponents' average league position is 12th, while Reading's opponents have an average of 11.7 and Brighton's average 9.6.

Charlton, currently 11th in the table face teams with an average league position of 13th which might help keep them in the top half of the table.

The toughest run-ins in the Championship on paper are those of Sheffield Wednesday and Bolton.

The Owls and the Trotters' remaining opponents have an average league position of 7.2, the highest in the league.

Bolton face games against sides including Norwich, Brentford and Bournemouth, whilst Wednesday face Brentford, Bournemouth and Watford.
