Which clubs will promote from League-1 2018/19?
As the Championship and League 1 season 2017/18 have come to an end, the betting starts for the upcoming League 1 season 2018/19. Wigan Athletic, Blackburn, and Rotherham have been promoted to the Championship this season, while Barnsley, Burton, and Sunderland have been relegated from the Championship to League 1.
Here, we talk about a few clubs that are favorites to earn promotion from League 1 to the Championship in the 2018/19 season.
It has been a very tough two seasons for Sunderland. In two seasons, they have been relegated from the Premier League to Championship and now from the Championship to League 1. But Sunderland is expected to promote to Championship again in the upcoming season, in fact, they are the favorites. Their new boss Jack Ross believes that he can turn his team around in the next season. Their new owner, Stewart Donald along with executive director Methven has a good knowledge of football and they rapidly appointed the new manager. Now only time can tell if the new era of the Black Cats will see success in next season’s League 1.
Barnsley sacked their manager Jose Morais after their relegation from the Championship even though he only joined the club in February. Barnsley was only two points shy to avoid relegation last season. But they are expected to come back stronger as they have already started looking for talented players as well as a good manager for the next season. Barnsley winger Ryan hedges told in a recent interview that they will have to make things right next season. The club has a good number of players to get back to Championship in the upcoming season.
Charlton finished 6th in the League-1 2017/18 season but they are one of the favorites next season. Charlton fans feel hope again as the club owner, Roland Duchatelet’s ruinous reign nears its end. After four years of anger, Charlton fans could finally be closing in on a new era next season. The fans feel that they need their old Charlton back and only then they can promote to the Championship, which can happen next season.
Portsmouth has been good in the 2017/18 League 1 season but finished only 8th in the end. Kenny Jackett's side pushed for a play-off spot for the majority of the season, but they petered out in the final weeks of the campaign. Pompey's first campaign back in League One after four seasons in the League 2 can be looked upon as an amazing season. They are expected to play even better and promote next season.
After an amazing 2017/18 League 1 season, Shrewsbury finished 3rd in the table. They even went to the play-off finals to promote to the Championship but failed to beat 4th place, Rotherham. But they could finish the job next season by finally getting promoted to the Championship.
Other clubs that could promote: Luton Town, Scunthorpe, Burton.
