Fulham are gearing up for a good season, but not quite good enough, according to research done by experimental361.com.
The data and graphics specialists have compiled a predicted league table based on an aggregation of leading bookmakers' odds for each individual fixture throughout the Championship season, resulting in a forecasted final league table.
It also shows the league's six most difficult sides to face (in red), and the six easiest sides to face (in blue), so each club can see how likely they are to win each fixture.
Despite what is tipped by the bookies to be an excellent season, Fulham are expected to finish in third place in the league, narrowly missing out to recently-relegated Middlesbrough and Steve Bruce's Aston Villa.
Brentford look set for another season of stability, with the forecasted table predicting that they will finish in 12th position in the table.
Meanwhile QPR look set for another difficult campaign, with experimental361.com predicting a 19th place finish in the league, something which will not please the Loftus Road faithful.
