Brentford are one of only six teams on course for their highest league finish since the football league expanded to 92 teams in 1958.
The Bees currently sit 26th nationally which is 18 places higher than their previous best of 44th in 1993.
That’s the largest difference of any of the current 92 football league sides.
Fleetwood Town are 14 places above their previous best of 72nd last season - the second largest improvement in the football league.
AFC Bournemouth are eight places above their highest league position (32nd), AFC Wimbledon are five places above theirs (84th), while both Hull and Burton Albion are two places above their previous bests of 17th and 72nd respectively.
Chelsea are the only side currently at the same position as their highest finish.
Portsmouth are the side furthest behind their post-1958 highest league position though.
Pompey are currently 81st nationally (13th in League One) and 73 places behind their 2008 high of eighth in the Premier League.
However, Portsmouth’s current plight isn’t the biggest fall from grace of a current football league side.
Luton Town finished in seventh place in 1987, their highest position in the league since the expansion to 92 sides in 1958.
By 2013 they had fallen 92 places, finishing 99th (seventh in the conference) giving them the biggest drop of any of the current football league teams.
Burnley’s fall of 89 places is the second largest, going from First Division champions in 1960 to 90th in 1987.
Oxford and Swansea have had the joint third largest fall (83 places) followed by Cambridge and Preston North End (82 places).
