The relegation watch this week takes a slightly different look at the teams currently looking down towards the Championship, focusing on the managers wrapped up in the battle to avoid the drop.

With nothing short of a miracle looking likely to be able to save Reading and Queens Park Rangers, neither Nigel Adkins nor Harry Redknapp will be mentioned this week. Apart from just then of course. As our eyes turns to those teams fighting to stay out of that third and final relegation spot.

With Wigan Athletic not playing until midweek, there are five teams, and five managers who will be hoping to build a gap between themselves and the Latics, at least for now.

These next five managers are likely to be spotted patrolling their coaching areas this weekend biting their lip in nervous frustration, looking pensive as they strum their chin, or for one overly emotive manager, potentially tearing up as his side goes into a crucial North East derby.

So read on to find out which men are looking straight down the relegation barrel, in the battle of the managers.
