Tonights fixtures...

Recommended Posts

Good results, actually pleased Villa won as I'd rather they overtake us at this point than for us to fall further behind Forest. 

 

Even the Preston win might not seem so bad if Boro start slipping, no way are they nailed on for the top 6 yet.

Boro in the poo with the chasing pack now. We're only 6 points off them ffs. 

 

Weekend fixture

 

Villa v Boro

 

No Bristol City or Derby fixture? FA Cup maybe?

Results not too bad tonight. It's really all about us and being able to maintain our current form. A little assistance from lady luck wouldn't go amiss either.

 

Bruce has done a remarkable job in a short space of time. (Also, let us not forget those results secured by Bullen in the interim). The question now really is down to SB being able to continue to galvanise a group of players that we know aren't mentally the strongest and make them believe. 

 

Whatever happens, I'm personally delighted in the fact that we have a clear direction once more and we've taken strides in that direction over the last few weeks.

So what if they do? Bit of a small minded mentality that.

4 isn't it?

 

We'd need 5 points though with our gd.

Mathematically yes but with GD, effectively 5.

The difference isn’t that crazy. 7 goal swing as it stands.

Good thing is we’ve got to play the 4 teams above us meaning we can deal a blow to all of their playoff chances while boosting our own. In reality we’ve pretty much got to have a bit of a stormer in the last 9 games, but at least it’s potentially in our own hands.

4 points off with 27 points to play for.  It's still definitely achievable although half a dozen teams will think the same.

Completely agree, I'm actually glad we've got to play those sides above us. Could be a few 6 pointers coming up soon.

Were playing 4 teams in the thick of it 

 

Bristol Preston forest villa 

 

2 teams flying

 

Leeds Norwich 

 

And 3 teams we must beat 

 

Qpr stoke Blackburn 

 

With Bristol forest and villa at home - we must take advantage and get behind the boys and take these on. 

 

I see 20/1 points max - not sure it will Get us there

The pity if Boro start slipping is that Bristol City's game in hand is against them so we'd just replace Boro with them above us... plus they're up against Villa next, another team based on tonight might keep us out of the play offs.

Villa the danger team. Grealish back for them will feel like Messi being back for Barca.

Great result Derby drawing. They are in free fall and their seen-it-before fans and their nut-job owner will be piling pressure on Derby County’s Frank Lampard.

Important thing is though they are all likely to take points off each other, they can't all have 3 points. 

 

That's why in my opinion it really is on.

 

If we can take 7 pts from the 3 home games in April it really could be on a knife edge

Not convinced, people have been saying this for 2 seasons now, they've never really put a really good run together. Too inconsistent for me.

 

My money would be on Preston right now, but also wouldn't rule out Derby finding their feet again.

I reckon Forest & Preston will drop, with Bristol, Villa  and hopefully us fighting for the spot(s)
