The latest League One ‘supercomputer’ has tipped Wanderers to finish in the play-off places this season.

The Whites are currently in fifth place following Saturday’s 2-0 win against Exeter at the UniBol, with Conor Bradley and Dion Charles both getting on the scoresheet.

Ian Evatt’s men are only a point behind fourth-place Barnsley, who have played a game fewer at this stage.

But Wanderers have a tricky run-in, with matches against Derby, Barnsley, Plymouth and Portsmouth coming up before the end of January.

The Whites are currently tipped to finish sixth come the end of the campaign, according to football statistics website FiveThirtyEight’s table, which is based on a wide range of data from the season so far.

The table predicts that Sheffield Wednesday will clinch the league title, with Ipswich also securing automatic promotion.

Plymouth, Barnsley and Derby are also tipped to finish in the play-off places at this stage, with Wycombe, Peterborough and Portsmouth all missing out.

At the other end of the table, Morecambe, Forest Green, Burton and Cambridge are tipped for relegation to the fourth tier, with Accrington narrowly beating the drop.

Plymouth currently sit at the top of the table, having lost just three times in the league since the start of the campaign.

However, the Pilgrims have won just one of their last five games in League One heading into the busy Christmas period.
