With the new Football League season to kick-off this weekend, here are our predictions for the new campaign across all the three divisions.

It promises to be another exciting and unpredictable season in the Football League, with every division looking an exciting prospect for the new campaign.

The Championship is arguably the toughest and most exciting it has ever been, with huge clubs like Newcastle and Aston Villa – who boast Champions League winning managers – Leeds, Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday all taking part.

A thrilling season also awaits in League One, where a number of big clubs who have previously spent time in the Premier League, in the likes of Bolton, Sheffield United, Coventry, Charlton Swindon Town and Oldham, look to battle their way back to the second tier.

Meanwhile in the basement division scrap that is League Two, Portsmouth will finally look to make progress back up the Football League, but face stiff competition from big spenders, Luton and Leyton Orient, and promotion hopefuls, Plymouth, Doncaster and Colchester – who will all strive to become the new Burton Albion and sail through to the second tier.
