The Wombats challenging Adele for albums chart Number One spot

Liverpool trio aiming for the top with 'This Modern Glitch'

The Wombats are currently battling Adele for the Number One position in the UK albums chart this week (beginning April 25).

Adele's '21' is currently selling more than the band's new album 'This Modern Glitch', which is just behind her effort in the Number Two spot, according to midweek figures released today (April 17). If she holds off the Liverpool trio it will be the 13th week '21' has topped the charts.

In the singles chart LMFAO look set to hold onto the top spot with 'Party Rock Anthem', with Jennifer Lopez' 'On The Floor' likely to climb to Number Two, if the midweek trends continue to the weekend.
