Norwich City are being strongly backed to take the second automatic promotion spot in League One.

Bookmakers - online and in the High Street - have Leeds United as clear favourites to be the first team promoted next May.

But while Charlton currently hold second spot in the table, the bookies have been impressed by City's unbeaten run of six league games, and reckon they are more likely to go up than the south Londoners.

It's marginal between City and the Addicks, but there has been a clear swing in favour of Paul Lambert's team in recent weeks.
