THE COACH HOME pulls into The Championship this week as the race for promotion hots up. Neil Atkinson and John Gibbons speak to followers of three teams currently in the play off positions.

Derby County lie in 5th position after three straight wins, including a 4-0 demolition of promotion rivals Hull City. Joel Clyne from @dcfcpodcast was a bit down when we last spoke to him, but was much more chipper this time. So, how have they turned it round, and are Derby the team with the momentum going into the play offs?

In even better form are Brighton and Hove Albion. Unbeaten in the last ten, including seven wins, Brighton are proving to be the team that refuse to go away. Alan Wares from Albion Roar wasn’t expecting any of this, but he’ll take it all the same. He tells us which of their unfancied squad has impressed the most, and looks ahead to games to come. But would a failure to go up automatically now be a blow that would be hard to recover from?

Finally Ben Finney is on the ground floor at Hull City to describe how such a talented squad have made a mess of their quest to win the Championship. But could a last minute winner at the weekend jolt the team into action at just the right time, and can they make their experience and quality count when it matters most?

Lots of questions and some answers as well on this weeks Coach Home.
