EFL 2021-22: Who will go up from the Championship, League One & League Two?

Chile striker Ben Brereton Diaz has spearheaded Blackburn’s rise towards the Championship’s top two

With Championship, League One and League Two sides about halfway through the campaign, how are your pre-season predictions shaping up?

Do not fret if you got it all wrong, because we are giving you a second chance to choose who you think will get promoted in the EFL come May.

Then there is also the cliche of one team ‘coming from nowhere’ to clinch sixth place and possibly reach the Premier League through the back door, but who might that be come May?

League One

This one looks tricky to call at the top, with only five points separating leaders Rotherham and fourth-placed Wycombe.
