This weekend of football has seen the vast majority of Championship sides take an away following of over a thousand fans to their respective opponents. Here are the Top 5 away attendances from this weekends action in the second tier…

 

5) Middlesbrough (1945 fans travelled to Leeds)

Taking into account the time of this game and the fact that it was televised, this turnout by Middlesbrough was very good. Many fans are not happy with the prices that Leeds currently charge for tickets, this further strengthens the argument that 2000 odd visiting Borough fans is a more than respectable attendance.

 

4) Blackburn Rovers (2287 fans travelled to Blackpool)

This Lancashire clash was always going to see a high away gate and Blackburn managed to fill out the allocation given to them by the Tangerines.

 

3) Nottingham Forest (2517 fans travelled to Bolton)

Forest have arguably one of the strongest away supports in the division, with this 2200+ attendance at Bolton further highlighting the size of their fan base. The Red’s will certainly hope to continue to travel in large numbers throughout the duration of this season.

 

2) Millwall (3929 fans travelled to Fulham)

It’s hardly surprising that Millwall filled the away end at Cravern cottage against local rivals Fulham given the short travelling distance. The 4000 supporters certainly had a worthwhile afternoon as their side gained an impressive three points away from home.

 

1) Derby County (4150 fans travelled to Sheffield Wednesday)

An attendance of 4100 Ram’s fans helped the Hillsborough crowd to exceed the 25,000 mark. Despite the 0-0 draw, Derby can be pleased that their supporters met expectations, all but filling the away end at Wednesday.
