League Championship Weekend Results and Updated Projection

My predictions fared pretty well this weekend.  Here is a recap:

Ipswich Town 1 Norwich City 5 (+10 pts)
Coventry City 1 Scunthorpe United 1 (-10 pts)
Leeds United 0 Reading 0 (+20 pts)
Doncaster Rovers 0 Crystal Palace 0 (-10 pts)
Nottingham Forest 3 Leicester City 2 (+15 pts)
Portsmouth 0 Swansea City 0 (+20 pts)
Millwall 4 Preston North End 0 (+10 pts)
Hull City 2 Middlesbrough 4 (-10 pts)
Derby County 2 Burnley 4 (-10 pts)
Watford 1 Barnsley 0 (+15 pts)
Cardiff City 2 Queens Park Rangers 2 (+20 pts)
Sheffield United 3 Bristol City 2 (-10 pts)

Predicted the correct outcome in 7 of the 12 matches.  Total score for the week is +60 points.  After the jump, my updated projection for the table:
1Queens Park Rangers462516572324091
2Norwich City462315883572684
3Cardiff City4624111180542683
5Swansea City462381563432077
7Nottingham Forest4618171162501271
9Leeds United461717128273968
10Hull City461716135349467
12Leicester City461712177171063
13Ipswich Town461710196164-361
16Bristol City461512195966-757
18Coventry City461412205559-454
19Derby County461311225970-1150
20Doncaster Rovers461114215780-2347
21Crystal Palace461113224468-2446
22Scunthorpe United46125294284-4241
23Preston North End46913245481-2740
24Sheffield United46109274076-3639

Burnley continues their late charge up the table.  They improved by 3 points, jumped up two spots and are now tied with Millwall and Nottingham Forest at 71 points for the last playoff spot.  The first tiebreaker is goal differential and Millwall is projected to have a big edge over both teams.  Hull City's loss to Middlesbrough really hurt their projection as they dropped 3 points and one spot.  They now have to climb over four teams to reach the playoffs which will be tough to do with only three matches remaining.

No change in the playoffs as I am still predicting Reading over Cardiff City in the playoff finals.
