Arter: Championship is impossible to predict

Image for Arter: Championship is impossible to predict

AFC Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter would not be surprised if the promotion chase in the Championship was not resolved until the final day of the season.

This week the Championship saw the latest twists and turns at the summit of the second tier of English football.

On Tuesday night, AFC Bournemouth ended a five match run without a win with a 2-1 victory over Wolves, whilst promotion contenders Middlesbrough, Brentford and Watford all won, Derby County lost 2-0 at Brighton.

Then on Wednesday night both Ipswich Town and Norwich City lost.

This has left the top four in the Championship separated by just three points and with the other sides not playing until Saturday, a victory over Fulham live on Sky Sports on Friday night would see the Cherries return to the top of the Championship table after only dropping to fifth last week.

Arter told the Daily Echo

“Consistency is the key to any successful team. In recent weeks, one minute people have been saying we are out of contention and the next they have been saying we are in it…’

“…As a group, we know what we have to do to stay consistent and, if we can manage that, then I feel we will give ourselves a really good chance.

“It is so tight and it is impossible to predict how the league is going to finish. If one team was eight or nine points ahead then maybe you could look at it and say there was a good chance they would go up but that is not the case.

“Not long ago, Derby were six points clear of us and now you could throw a blanket over the top six or seven. It wouldn`t surprise me if it went down to the last day.
