Championship Round Up: Games Two and Three

Not the best week for Wigan but there have been some surprises in the Sky Bet Championship so far this campaign.

Well three games in and Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City make up the top two, well that would make the bookmakers pretty happy. The two clubs are likely to be contenders for the top two positions this season and they have managed to get off to flying starts, but both of them have had to work hard to get their.

Former leaders AFC Bournemouth being dethroned by Nottingham Forest after Stuart Pearce's men came from behind to beat them 2-1. The Cherries had looked impressive and they would have been good value for the win, but Nottigham's big summer signing (Britt Assombalonga) and Matty Fryatt changed things around. Hopefully Eddie Howe's men can dust themselves off and go again as they have shown some impressive football so far.

The other two teams defying the odds so far are Millwall FC and Charlton FC. Both have had very good summers and recruited well and have hence had fantastic starts to the season. They currently sit third and fourth respectively level on points with the top two, this season surprise packages? Only time will tell if they can keep it up all season.

There are now only four teams not to win a game, ourselves, local neighbors Bolton Wanderers, Fulham FC and struggling Blackpool. As it currently stands none of us do look like getting a win, which is interesting seeing as we and Blackpool play each other this weekend (a must win game).

The rest in the middle, do just look like that in the middle. This could be a very open championship season with anyone looking like they could beat anyone on their day this year, I wouldn't expect to see one team running away with it, although is someone is going to my money with be on Nottingham Forrest.

The seven more games and we will be a fifth of a way through the season, then will the table begin to take shape, for now it is every team for them-self as we all begin to scramble for points and to try and make a good start to the season.
