A SUPERCOMPUTER has predicted the final Championship table – and it is good news for Vincent Kompany.

The former Manchester City captain only took over at Turf Moor last season following Burley’s relegation to the second tier.

But he looks well on course to send them flying back into the Premier League at the first attempt – with an exciting brand of quality football.

And the number-crunching machine BETSiE is convinced they will soar to the Championship title.

The Betting Expert supercomputer simulated the remainder of the Championship season a whopping 100,000 times, taking into account results so far this season, pre-season expectations and xG for and against for all 24 clubs.

And the results churned out will make happy reading for Clarets fans.

Burnley come out on top with a projected tally of 26.2 wins, 13.1 draws and 6.6 defeats – totalling 91.9 points.

Then it is Sheffield United who are expected to claim the second automatic promotion slot on 86.4 points with 25.2 wins, 10.8 draws and 10.0 losses.

Millwall are tipped for third place – on 73.1 points – in what would be their highest finish since the 1993-94 season.

Middlesbrough, now managed by ex-Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick, and Watford are fourth and fifth respectively on 72 points with West Brom completing the play-offs just a point behind.


It means Swansea, Norwich and Luton just miss out on their chance for Wembley glory with Sunderland leading the mid-table pack.

Rotherham finish bottom in the predicted league table with their 10.2 wins, 13.2 draws and 22.6 defeats seeing the Millers manage just 43.8 points.

Mick McCarthy is unable to work his magic to keep Blackpool up – as the Tangerines end the season in 23rd on 44.3 points.

And completing the bottom three are Wigan on 46.5 points – meaning Huddersfield and Cardiff make narrow escapes from relegation.
