Deserved promotion

Wolves have been the best team in the Championship this season, and the Wanderers have deservedly achieved automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Doherty has been a key figure in Nuno's side, with the 26-year-old Republic of Ireland international scoring four goals and providing four assists in 42 Championship appearances for Wolves so far this season.

Aston Villa’s chances

Villa are still in the running for automatic promotion to the Premier League at the moment.

The Villan are set to finish in the playoffs, and if Steve Bruce’s side can win their final three league fixtures and results elsewhere go their way, then they could end up in the top two.

Grealish, 22, has scored three goals and provided five assists in 17 Championship starts for Villa so far this season.
