What a totally crazy season it's been in the Championship.

And with only just over two weeks of the regular campaign to go, there are so many issues to be resolved.

Apart from Rotherham falling through the trap door to League One, virtually nothing is certain.

Yes, there are a few teams kicking around in the middle of the table who won't go down and are going to miss out on the final scrap for the play-offs.

Eastern Daily Press: The late winner at Preston has really put City in pole position to get in the play-offs

There are probably six clubs in that group who you could say - using that much-loved old phrase - are on the beach.

Everyone else has got automatic promotion, the end of season sudden death fight or relegation on their minds.

Has there ever been a year when so much is still in the balance with so little time to go?

I'll come to Norwich City's part in this madness shortly.

Let's start right at the top.

A few weeks ago it looked as if Leicester were going to romp back to the top flight by winning the league by 10-15 points.

But they have stumbled massively in the last 10 games with just 10 points, leaving them 19th in the form table.

The victory over David Wagner's men is one of only two successes in that time.

The fact is that if Leicester win their final four games, they will clinch the title. But there are definitely jitters.

Eastern Daily Press: Gabriel Sara's goal proved the difference as Norwich City beat Preston North End 1-0 at Deepdale.

Leeds fans will tell you they never make things easy in a promotion chase and as things stand they are missing out on the top two, despite being so hotly tipped for an immediate return to the top flight.

And so what of the lot down the A140? Even though their East Anglian derby misery continued and they have failed to win either of their last two home games, they still sit at the top of the perch.

Plenty of tipsters believe Kieran McKenna's troops will ensure back-to-back promotions.

What appeared to be a three-horse race has now definitely got a fourth contender as Russ Martin's Southampton have regained their excellent form.

Their latest 3-0 win on Tuesday night leaves them just a win behind Leeds with a game in hand.

The final fixtures for the top four are fascinating - and include Leicester v West Brom this Saturday,  Leicester v Southampton next Tuesday and the little matter of Leeds v Saints on the last day.

Another intriguing fact is that Southampton play three more times before Ipswich kick a ball again due to Town's rearranged match with FA Cup semi-finalists Coventry and a late start on Saturday week.

I'm not going to spend long looking at the bottom of the table, but it continues the theme of how mad the Championship year has been.

Millwall on 50 points seem safe, but there are seven teams below who are battling to avoid being in one of the two final relegation slots.

And the fact that some are playing each other and are coming up against the promotion challengers makes it even more tense.

So let's get to the central issue of the play-offs tussle and specifically the Canaries' part in it.

Think back to when we trudged out of Carrow Road on Bonfire Night.

There was a mix of anger, frustration and apathy after City had slumped to a thoroughly depressing 3-1 defeat to Blackburn.

It left Wagner's future under mounting scrutiny as his team were in 17th place on just 17 points.

Plenty of fans - and I include myself as one of them - wanted a change at the top.

Just imagine if you had been told at that stage that Norwich would be on 71 points with three games left and looking pretty nailed on for the end-of-term bunfight.

The wins over Ipswich and Preston have put City in a great position to secure sixth spot - and maybe fifth.

The draw at Hillsborough was disappointing as we had been in such control at half-time. However, in the context of the last eight games - which sees the Canaries at the top of the form table - it wasn't that bad.

Confidence playing at Carrow Road couldn't be much higher heading into the final two home games against Bristol City and Swansea (who are both in the category of 'on the beach' clubs).

We have to hope that we can get the job done of getting enough points so we won't have to worry too much about the final day at St Andrew's (where the home side may well still be fighting for points to avoid the drop).

So what of the other contenders?

Fifth placed West Brom have bobbed along around the spot they are in for ages now.

Their remaining matches are at strugglers Sheffield Wednesday and then Preston after their trip to Leicester.

Hull and Coventry - who both have a game in hand over City - are the two most likely to gatecrash the party, but realistically will have to win pretty much all their remaining games (and of course the Sky Blues have their big match at Wembley very much on their minds).

So what is going to happen between now and the play-offs final game on May 26?

The short answer is, I haven't got a clue!

We could be sixth, we could be fifth, we could miss out altogether. If the latter now happens it would seem a failure.

If we do extend the season, who would we most want to play?

Could we carry on the derby day dominance if we meet the Tractor Boys over two legs? Surely they have to win at some point - but will they dread meeting us?

The Saints are definitely the in-form team but haven't beaten us this term. 

Would Leicester and Leeds fancy the play-offs having been in such a strong position for so long?

Get those seat belts on - we've got quite a few weeks ahead!
