Have a go. Tough run in and some of the sides around us have easier runs (Villa in particular and Derby in particular). So hard to tell in this Championship. The one boost we have is players returning from injury. If before the end of the season we can get the likes of Onomah, Hooper and FF firing, it will be like adding a new dimension to the squad. 

 

I had us missing out on the Play Offs, which I think will happen. But it’s nice that the season isn’t dead like it was this time last year. 

You had us relegated at Christmas lol

Completely with you on that prediction. Have a horrible feeling about the Stoke game. No idea why but just think they will turn up against us for one of the few times this season 

 

Yeah, it's a tricky game. 

 

Stoke almost have a similar scenario to ourselves at the back end of last season. We finished the season really well. 

 

The season has been a huge disappointment, new manager has come in to implement a new style of play and the players will want to make sure they are finishing the season well. 

 

They have some quality players...and when they relax they could become a different beast.

If we get Winnall and Hooper anywhere match fit and keep the rest fit I think we could be formidable if we go at to the playoffs. Unfortunately as many are predicting I think we will fall short despite valiant effort. Having said that none of the team other than the top 3 look like they put a prolonged good run together - so who knows, but as I say I'd fancy us with Winnall and Hooper to call upon even if only for 60-70mins in each of the semifinals.

 As much as I'd love to break the top 6 mine came out with us in 8th.  Could be totally wrong though, it happened to me before once.

I felt we’d need 73 points to get in the playoffs and these tables support my feelings on that. I think we’d be very unlucky to miss out if we got that total

 

We simply have to win tomorrow, then it’s targeting 5 wins from the remaining 8 games - plus some draws!

I had us only losing one more game from the last 9 away at norwich because Im confident we will get something at Leeds as we usually do barring the season Rhodes missed that penalty.  Draws were the killer though....I had us beating both forest and Bristol City and drawing with Villa at home and still wasnt enough to break into to top 6...plus boro and brentford have a game left over so that one point could be 4 by the end of it all or Brentford leap frog us into 8th.  I did notice that the pigs have loads of winnable games and they may well nick second spot the scruffy. matalan tracksuit wearing truffle snorters!

Table tomorrow night assuming these results:-

 

Villa beat Boro

Preston win

Derby draw at Swansea

Forest beat Rotherham

Bristol C draw at Millwall

...and of course, we win!

 

Boro would have fallen right back into the peloton.

teks too long, so I just bypassed the guesswork. We come 6th on 71pts.

Derby and Villa on 70pts

I had us missing out by 2 pts. However, it is impossible to say.  We are all putting results in for the final few games based on our perceptions of teams form at the moment.  Pressure will do funny things and the one thing that keeps me confident we can still pull this off is Steve Bruce.  Been there, done that, won it, lost it.  If any team can keep a steady head, I think it will be us.

Based mine on historical data on how teams finish in a season.

Can’t face missing out by one point

 

Rather miss out by 5

 

Yep. It'll be devastating to miss out by a point... I'd be thinking about the leads we threw away at the last minute against WBA and.... errr WBA again!
