Leeds United wondered what could have been at the end of the regular Championship season, having lost four of their last six games.

Since the Championship was relaunched in 2004, their 90-point total is actually more than any third-place club has ever managed. When the second division was still known as the First Division, Sunderland in 1997–98 was the final team to miss out on promotion to the Premier League with 90 points.

Fourth-place Charlton Athletic defeated Sunderland on penalties in the championship game to win the playoffs that season.

Leeds will be playing Southampton, Norwich City, and Southampton this year in an attempt to avoid Sunderland’s fate.

90 points would have been enough for Leeds to have been promoted automatically in 13 of the past 20 seasons. In that time, the team that has finished third in the league has also won the playoffs nine times. Norwich, meanwhile, will be hoping to be the first sixth-place team to win the playoffs since Blackpool in 2009
