While Wigan flounder and continue to fail in that most of important areas (scoring) other teams around the bottom are starting to pick up the pace, mainly Fulham. The London club who left company with Felix Magath the other week have since found form, goals and now six points. Lifting them above Blackpool FC and Bolton Wanderers and only two points of us, we are quickly becoming relegation battlers this season.
The good news for us, and of course every team down the bottom is that the top half aren't running away with it, just yet anyway. Between us in 21st and Norwich City in first there is only an eleven point gap, if we can string a couple of month of performances together then we could start getting back up the table.
Fingers crossed then that we can continue the display we showed against Nottingham Forest this coming weekend and start getting points on the board.
Elsewhere Chris Powell and Huddersfield Town have now found some form with two wins taking them to 12 points. The Yorkshire club took our outcast striker and have made him feel very welcome. Huddersfield becoming the first side to beat Wolves at Molineux since January.
Further up the table and Charlton Athletic and Ipswich Town continue their fine starts to the season as they sit in sixth and fifth places respectively. Charlton continuing their unbeaten record, one of only five teams in the football league to remain unbeaten; they join the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Nottingham Forest and Bristol City.
The top eight teams remain only three points clear of each other, with the top three now on 20 points. Norwich City had the chance to go three points clear during the week, however a 1-0 defeat to Charlton has kept them on level points with Forest and the resurgent Watford FC.
Things then continue to remain tight, and so long as they do it means that anyone who strings results together can and will shoot up the table (hopefully Latics can do some of that). This could be one of the closets Championships season in a long time.
