Plan would work for Leeds United

Under the reportedly proposed system, both Leeds and West Brom would go up, as they are first and second respectively in the standings at the moment.

The Whites and the Baggies have been the best teams in the Championship so far this season, and they would have probably finished in the automatic promotion places anyway.

Things are quite uncertain at the moment, and one suspects that there will be no solution how to end the season anytime soon.
