Results couldn’t have gone much better for Southampton on Tuesday night, with the Saints triumphing 2-0 at the KC Stadium which means they are now five points clear at the top of the Championship.

Nigel Adkins’ team have now won seven of their last nine matches and the bookies make them firm favourites to clinch the Championship title and book their place in next season’s Premier League.

William Hill offer a best price 1/2 about Southampton, while some firms are as short as 2/5 while Sky Bet have odds of 1/8 that the Hampshire club are promoted this term and they look set to secure one of the automatic spots.

It’s a different story for West Ham United who once again slipped up at Upton Park, recording their fifth consecutive draw as Middlesbrough claimed a point on Tuesday night.

It means that the Hammers are now 4/1 with Paddy Power to win the Championship and the odds on Sam Allardyce’s team getting promoted have lengthened to 8/13 with Bet Victor.

It might be the case that West Ham are scrapping it out with Reading for that second automatic promotion place, with the Royals being surprisingly beaten at London Road on Tuesday night which means the Hammers go to second if they win their game in hand.

Nevertheless, Brian McDermott’s team are 8/13 with bet365 to gain promotion, with either themselves, West Ham or Southampton set to end up in the play-offs.

The other three play-off places look firmly up for grabs, with Brighton, Middlesbrough and Birmingham currently sitting in the top six, although Blackpool, Cardiff and Hull could all squeak into the play-off zone.

Best Promotion Odds
Southampton 1/8 with Sky Bet
Reading 8/13 with bet365
West Ham 8/13 with Sky Bet
Birmingham City 9/2 with bet365
Cardiff City 6/1 with Blue Square
Blackpool 6/1 with Blue Square
Middlesbrough 6/1 with Bet Victor
Brighton 9/1 with Coral
Hull City 9/1 with Paddy Power
Leicester City 16/1 with bet365
Leeds United 20/1 with bet365
