Well just seven games left for most teams, what do we think your side will do for the rest of the campaign :

Huddersfield (h) - Win, difficult game and Huddersfield could be dragged into the relegation battle if they continue to drop points.

Norwich (a) - Defeat, ending a ten game unbeaten run against Norwich

Charlton (h) - Draw, we are shite at home and Charlton have won on their last two trips north to ours.

Brentford (h) - Defeat, Tuesday night home games are so so shit

Bournemouth (a) - Draw, we'll grind out a result

Leeds (h) - 3 points for us, and a nice end to the season at Hillsborough

Watford (a) - Defeat, Watford seal promotion

8/21 - 61 points for the season

Cardiff (H) - Draw. Rarely do well against Cardiff.

Blackpool (A) - Win. should do.

Blackburn (H) - Lose. Blackburn have one of the best strike forces in the league.

Bournemouth (H) - Lose. Last two seasons they've destroyed us.

Arsenal (FA CUP) - Lose. By how many?

Birmingham (H) - Win. Their season will be done, get a bit of revenge.

Brentford (H) - Draw. Think we can match them.

Rotherham (A) - Draw. Our season will be finished, Rotherham might have something to play for still.

Derby (A) - Lose. Scared of their attack again.


Would leave us on 53 points.

Didn't realise that we have a run of four straight home league games.

If my nerves hold out..

Ipswich A - 2-1 Defeat - Ipswich are the exact and perfect opposite of us and play to all our weaknesses. They just nicked a win at Watford away and we share a lot of similarities with Watford. We battered Ipswich at Dean Court and Mick still managed to organise them to a 2-2 draw. They'll have our number.

Birmingham H - 3-1 Win - they'll be out for some revenge for the 8-0 and they're a much better side now, but their season is up and we'll hopefully have enough to see them off.

Brighton A - 1-1 Draw - Brighton have been slowly but surely improving lately, especially at home. Their supporters will be really keen to get one over on us as well.

Reading A - 2-0 Win - we have a cracking record against them recently, their season is over and we'll be backed by 4000 traveling up. So it'll either be brilliant or a total let-down. I'll be optimistic!

Sheffield Weds H - 1-1 Draw - We've been really good at home lately so we'll be well over-due to drop some points in a game you might expect us to win. The nerves will be pushed.

Bolton H - 1-0 Win - Sets up what I'm sure will be a frantic last day for everyone.

Charlton A - 1-1 Draw - Charlton are going really well at the moment, one of the form sides. We have a dire record up there, and it'll be a day when everyone will be too nervous to really perform.

12 points = 85 points total (with what should be a great goal difference). Where that would leave us, no idea!

Really have no idea right now. With our best players back after the break will we return or carry on being awful? No predictions, can only hope for good form again.

Derby (A) - Never do well at Pride Park. Now would be a good time to change such a record. DRAW
Boro (H) - Must win really - could make or break our chances. DRAW
Millwall (A) - Might be down by then so nothing to play for. WIN
Forest (A) - Tough game against a side much improved in recent weeks. DRAW
Birmingham (H) - 3 vital points against a side in mid-table. WIN
Brighton (A) - Hope they are safe by then. WIN
Sheffield Wednesday (H) - 3rd time we've faced a Yorkshire side on the final day at the Vic- lets hope it goes better than the previous 2! WIN

15 points - fear we might just missed out coming 3rd or 4th!

Brentford (H) - Tough game. DRAW
Blackpool (H) - WIN
Huddersfield (A) - DRAW
Millwall (A) - WIN
Reading (H) - WIN

14/21. Will that be enough for the playoffs? You would hope so...

Watford (H) - massive game this for us. Lose and we are fighting for one of the last play off places, win and results go in our favour we could be 2/3 points behind 2nd. A big crowd and some key players back will get us a win in a high scoring game WIN

Wigan (A) - A Poor pitch could hamper our football. Wigan still scrapping for life. DRAW

Brentford (H) - An open game which we just come out on top WIN

Blackpool (H) - All guns blazing to boost a goal difference that has took a hit lately. WIN

Huddersfield (A) - a surprise loss in front of sold out away game. LOSS

Millwall (A) - A big win to put the final nail in their coffin. Just hope that there is no crowd trouble or frustrated players causing any injuries! WIN

Reading (H) - I hate Reading who ALWAYS seem to beat us at PP. The tide will change as their season has petered out WIN

16/21 just gets us into the play offs

Brighton (a) - normally I'd fancy our chances but Hughton! LOSE
Sheff Wed (h) - can't even remember the last time we beat them. DRAW
Bolton (a) - not really sure but I'll be positive. WIN
Leeds (a) - they're in decent form, reckon we can get something though. DRAW
Middlesbrough (h) - really not confident but fuck it... WIN :err:
Rotherham (a) - if we beat Middlesbrough LOSE, if we lose/draw to Middlesbrough WIN
Fulham (h) - what the hell is the point in this fixture? just scrap the game and award them the three points now so I don't have to sit there and watch the fucking shit c*** beat us again.

Fulham (A) - We usually bounce back from a bad result, and with a big crowd behind us I fancy us for a win here WIN
Forest (H) - Usually good at home (last couple of fixtures being exceptions), but think we'll only get a draw here DRAW
Derby (A) - Tough game, think we'll LOSE
Wednesday (A) - Another draw here I think, making it very difficult for us to sneak into the play offs DRAW
Bolton (H) - Bounce back from poor results with a WIN
Reading (A) - Another big victory away from home, giving us a slight chance of sneaking play offs on the final day WIN
Wigan (H) - Final day victory, and I think it will just leave us short WIN

13 points, we just miss out on the play offs. 5 dropped points against Millwall and Cardiff this month come back to haunt us.

Given the remaining fixtures for both teams, I reckon it could be winner takes all in our game against Derby, winner takes 6th.

Yeh, I think 78 minimum will be needed this season. Funny looking at other leagues, 6th place in League one is on 56 points at the moment, we've got 65 and are 8th...

Bournemouth (H) - I kind of agree with Mark above that Bournemouth are the kind of team that we do well against. Despite that, I don't think we'll win. DRAW

Huddersfield (A) - They probably need a few more point before they can really relax so not an easy game. DRAW

Blackpool (H) - Hopefully as simple in reality as it is on paper. WIN

Cardiff (H) - If the previous games go reasonably well, then I'm confident we can get a win here too. WIN

Wolves (A) - Probably the most important game of the month. I expect Wolves to still be battling with us for 6th and this is a very tough game. LOSE

Forest (H) - It was looking like this could be another playoffs decider but their form is slowing a little. If we're lucky they won't have anything to play for by the end of April. DRAW

Blackburn (A) - Not the easiest game to finish the season if we still need the points, but I think we can do it. WIN

Only predicting one more defeat this season, this may be a little too optimistic.
12 more points would put us on 79; that's got to be enough... hasn't it?

I reckon a couple of teams will finish on 79 and one might miss out.

Blackburn (h)- Draw?:woot:
Blackpool (a)- If we have a chance of going down then it's written in the stars that Clark will beat us.

No way will you pick up just two points.

Heart says - Win all seven and get promoted!!
Head says - Injured players returning won't be up to speed and we will struggle to stay in the play-offs.

Millwall (A) - Normally, I just write these games off. We've not beaten this mob for 20 years, that run can't go on forever and I'm confident we'll get victory here - WIN
Fulham (H) - Still surprised at how poor Fulham have been this season, have to be looking for three points - WIN
Sheff Wed (A) - Certainly capable of taking something from this game, expecting a tight game and possibly ending in a narrow defeat - LOSE
Bolton (A) - Another tricky away trip, would like to think we'll avoid two defeats on the trot so will take a draw - DRAW
Leeds (H) - Another I can't call, hopefully home advantage results in victory - WIN
Birmingham (A) - Certainly a winnable game but again, will take a draw - DRAW
Bournemouth (H) - Could be an interesting afternoon, this could all depend of Bournemouth's circumstances but we will certainly have no pressure at all - DRAW

11/21 leaving us on 65 points.

Forest (Away): Win. 2-1. Sako to score an exceptionally controversial penalty in injury time. Batth stays on the pitch despite felling all 11 Forest players, both linesmen, the fourth official and more than 350 of the home support and stealing a handbag. Michael Manicenne gets Forest consolation goal.
Leeds (Home): Win 3-0. Afobe scores brace against the run of play while also resolving Ukraine and Russia's outstanding differences. Adryan awarded Oscar for 'Best Supporting Fish Out of Water' after Matt Doherty gives him a dirty look.
Birmingham (Away): Lose 2-0 David Davis and Gleeson to score either side of half-time to effectively confirm our position in the Championship next season.
Middlesbrough (Away): Draw 1-1. George Friend to score at last gasp after Patrick Bamford, the on-loan Leon Clarke, Stears, Iorfa, Batth, Kevin Dole and James Henry all sent off for impersonating Fernando Forestieri.
Ipswich (Home): Win 4-1. Tough game, with Christophe Berra scoring an own-goal hat-trick and Stephen Hunt grabbing an injury time fourth for us to grab the three points. Berra makes up for his errors by scoring a touchdown late on for the home side.
Wigan (Away) Lose. 1-0 On-loan Steven "Lambourghini" Fletcher to score the only goal.
Millwall: (Home) Win 5-3. A Stefan Maierhoffer brace for Millwall not enough to prevent us scooping the points, with all five goals from returning loanee Leon Clarke.

78 points. Wolves miss out on promotion but claim record of having every single goal in seven matches for and against scored by a current or former Wolves player.

Touchdowns are worth six points, so I make that a win for us. ;)
