Neil Warnock does it again as Championship relegation spots confirmed ahead of final day

The solitary fixture to have played out in the Championship on Thursday night had major repercussions on the situation at the bottom of the division.

This comes after Huddersfield Town went head-to-head with Sheffield United.

Whilst the latter had long sealed a return to the top-flight courtesy of a 2nd-placed finish, Huddersfield remained in danger of the drop to League One, sitting three points clear of the bottom three ahead of a final day showdown with 22nd-placed Reading.

The Terriers, in turn, were aware that a tall task awaited them, in clinching the necessary point to ensure safety with a game to spare.

When all was said and done at the John Smith’s Stadium, though, not only did Neil Warnock’s troops avoid defeat, but they managed to put Sheffield United to the sword.

A solitary goal proved the difference upon the full-time whistle sounding in west Yorkshire, as Danny Ward’s sumptuous finish sparked wild celebrations just shy of the hour mark.

And this has since given rise to a remarkable statistic, highlighting just how impressive a job the aforementioned Neil Warnock has done since taking up the reins in Yorkshire back in February:
