A League 2 blog with an overwhelmingly pro-Torquay United bias
The table below ranks each Championship side according to the ease of their remaining fixtures on 3 measures: the average points tally of their remaining opponents, the number of games they have left to play and the proportion of these which are at home.

I’m not much of an expert outside of League 2, but what this tells me is that Reading have a much better chance of making the playoffs than Forest, and that Leeds might drop out of the reckoning altogether at the expense of Millwall. Also Cardiff have a decent chance of catching Norwich, who have a much tougher end to the season, in the automatic promotion race. A playoff push may well be beyond Watford, while at the scary end of the table, Derby are in danger of getting sucked into the relegation battle and things look quite bleak for Scunthorpe.
