Wanderers are predicted to push for automatic promotion in League One this season, according to a “supercomputer”.

The Whites have taken 14 points from their opening eight games, including victories against Lincoln, Cheltenham, Fleetwood and Derby.

Ian Evatt’s men currently sit seventh in the table but have played a game fewer than most of the sides above them at this stage.

Wanderers are tipped to second come the end of the season, according to a new supercomputer.

It uses a wide range of data to predict the outcome of each match based on the number of goals and chances each team creates. The simulation is then run 10,000 times and average standings are calculated.

The table claims that the Whites have a 54 per cent chance of achieving automatic promotion and a 29 per cent chance of finishing as champions.

Evatt’s men achieved a fifth-place finish last term before coming up just short against Barnsley in the play-offs over two legs.

The Tykes are tipped to clinch the title this season, with a 43 per cent chance of topping the table come April.

Derby, Stevenage, Portsmouth and Peterborough are predicted to make up the top six, finishing ahead of Oxford and Lincoln.

At the other end of the table, Cheltenham, Carlisle, Burton and Fleetwood are all tipped for relegation to the fourth tier.
