With little more than a week until the final day of the 2020-21 season on Sunday, May 9, plenty is still up for grabs.
Only Hull City have secured a spot in the Championship next season, while the next seven sides in the table are all fighting to go up.
Pompey are pushing for a play-off place, although they face a tough task to clinch a top-six berth.
Peterborough, Lincoln, Sunderland, Blackpool, Oxford and Charlton are all hoping to join Hull in the second tier next campaign.
Here’s what the manager of each of the eight clubs have recently been saying...
The Tigers have already sealed automatic promotion but have set their sights on the title. Hull need four more points to claim the silverware or can do so on Saturday if they better Peterborough's result. Manager Grant McCann said: 'I couldn't be more proud of everyone at the football club because I see the hard work that goes in every single day. To win the title would be amazing. It's one thing getting promoted but winning the title is a different kettle of fish. We know we've got a strong challenge from Peterborough so I think it's probably a two-horse race now.'

2. Peterborough United
The Posh could have secured a top-two spot against Doncaster on Tuesday but capitulated. Despite being two goals ahead after 23 minutes, they were held to a 2-2 draw. Darren Ferguson admitted Peterborough fans setting fireworks off outside the ground were unhelpful. He said: 'There is naturally a lot of excitement around the club with promotion so close, but the fireworks were unhelpful. If I was the Doncaster manager or a player I would have got extra motivation from what was going on.'

3. Lincoln City
The Imps have all-but clinched a play-off spot after beating Shrewsbury 1-0. However, Michael Appleton has not given up on the automatics, with a crucial game with Peterborough on Saturday. He said: 'The reality is, if we win the game (at Peterborough), there’s still an opportunity, you just don’t know. At the end of the day, there isn’t going to be if we don’t win, but if we do, why not?'

The Black Cats are in woerful form, having failed to win in their past seven games. Lee Johnson seemingly isn't panicing, though, and believes there have been some decent displays despite poor results. He said: 'We’ve been going so well, so no wins from seven isn’t nice to hear, let me tell you. But at the same time, within those seven games, there have been some good performances. It’s my job to start earning my money now, and bring a bit of special motivation to get the boys going.'
