After 49 games, the team coached by Spaniard Aitor Karanka is ranked 17th in the standings with 49 points. There are still two rounds this season and even if they lose the matches with Bristol City (home) and Bolton Wanderers (away), the “foresters” can no longer fall below the demo. Tuesday night, they will play the “City Ground” overtime in the 40th round with FC Barnsley, but players seem more concerned with summer holidays and possible transfers.
“The Reds” have only one victory in the last 8 stages, 2-1 with Ipswich Town (home).

Now it is saved mathematically, but it is far from what supporters want, who hope for their favorites to return to the Premier League every year …
The hosts have all the valid bets, except for the extreme Iranian right Ashkan Dejagah, who is injured on the knee.
