About the Rankings

The Football League Power Rankings gives football fans, like you, a unique way of charting your team’s progress throughout the season. The FLPR puts all 92 Football League teams into one, complete league table and provides a unique view of how the sides in England are performing.

Big hitters and low achievers in each division will sit side by side so the best, and worst, teams of the season can be deduced.

Leicester, Burnley, Wigan and Northampton all won their respective leagues last season, but which team performed the best? Until now these questions were matter for argument and debate: the FLPR will provide the answers.

The FLPR will analyse stats and results from every Premier League and Football League game this season to give each team a Power Ranking score. Points are awarded based on the following criteria:

So, to put it simply, a 4-0 home win gets more points than a 2-1 home win; a 1-0 away win gets more points than a 1-0 home win and beating the team ranked first is better than beating the team ranked 92nd. Losing teams also get points to reflect their performance. The FLPR thinks that simply awarding 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw and 0 points for a defeat isn’t always the fairest policy.
