Nottingham Forest and Cardiff haven't quite nailed down their spot in the play-offs yet while a number of teams are still involved in the relegation battle. After 45 games, no team has had their relegation confirmed yet.

Brentford, Fulham and West Brom are all battling to join Leeds in the Premier League next season. Even with the play-offs to come, at least one of those three will definitely remain in England's second tier next season.

The conclusion to this campaign is a highly-exciting one. Leeds are the only side to know their fate; nobody has yet had their relegation confirmed while those in the play-off positions could well end up not playing a part in it.

All fixtures will kick-off at 19:30 on Wednesday with Brentford and West Brom's games televised by Sky Sports. It's clear that given the current standings, they are the two who are most likely to do it.

With one game of the campaign remaining, Fulham's Mitrovic leads the way with 26 while Watkins is just behind on 25.
