Hard-hit non-league clubs 'should ground-share with EFL sides'

Around the league: Away day travel and discriminative chanting clampdown

In a list compiled by Oddschecker, relegated sides Watford, Norwich and Bournemouth are amongst the favourites to make an immediate return to the Premier League, alongside play-off finalists Brentford.

Only Birmingham and Luton Town (16/1) Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham (25/1) and Wycombe Wanderers (66/1) have longer odds than Reading, QPR and Coventry to win promotion.

This price is the longest in the league by a significant margin despite Sheffield Wednesday who will begin the league with a 12-point deduction.
