Promotion Push - Can Reading return to the top-flight after last year's play-off final agony
Out of the twenty-four teams competing in the Championship for the 2011/2012 season, eighteen have enjoyed at least a season in the Premier League since its inception. 

These teams are striving to return to the Promised Land and many even believe it’s their divine right to be playing in the top tier of English football. The parachute payments of £12 million a year paid to clubs relegated from the Premier League over four years merely adds to the competitiveness of ‘The Championship’. Played out over 46 games, this all makes for a very tough league indeed. A tough league to get out of and, although a cliché, it really is true that any team can beat any of its rivals making predicting results a lottery.
