Injuries & Suspensions
The last thing that you want to do when trying to make a betting decision is to miss a key piece of information. But that is what can happen and usually, the injuries and suspensions list can get overlooked. It is easy to remember to look at the current form of a team but if you miss the information about injuries and suspensions which means that a side can't put out anywhere near the strongest starting eleven, then you are going to be at a disadvantage.
Arming yourself with the most information that you can get in order to try and land a successful bet is key. Exactly who is lining up in a Championship match is just as important as things like average goals per game that a team is scoring. You need to know who is playing and also who a team may or may not be playing against. So always stay dialled into the England Championship injuries and suspensions list so that no key information is missing from your betting decisions.

Links to current injuries and suspensions lists

The second tier in the English system is wonderfully competitive and entertaining. There is just so much at stake, especially in the chase for promotion. The race for a lucrative spot in the Premier League is a huge incentive and it's a tough thing to achieve through the automatic promotion with just two spots up for grabs.

But when it comes down to the crunch of the promotion play-offs, the final of that mini-competition ends up with the richest game in England, the Play-Off Final. The winner of that gets a huge windfall from that one-off chance to join the elite league. Keep track of all of the important action from the English Championship by staying up to date with the latest injuries and suspensions.
