Hull City have a new crest. It has been designed in conjunction with fans and already looks like being a hit. Maybe there’s a lesson there for Leeds United, who tried to update their club badge last season and were the subject of national ridicule before ditching it. But the occasion of a new crest in the Championship has prompted TalkSport to rate all 24 club badges in the second tier… including Stoke City’s.

Nottingham Forest have been ranked second in a TalkSport run down of the best badges in the Championship. The list, which includes all 24 Championship clubs, saw Forest ranked behind only Swansea City's on the list of crests. In third place was Sheffield Wednesday, who recently returned to their classic Owl badge first used in 1956, with Aston Villa in fourth.
