Might as well stick May in there, only 1 game.

Final full month of the season, the end is in sight. So, how will you do in the final few crucial games?

Crawley H - Win. We have got to target a win out of this one. At home, against a team in the bottom 4, a draw wouldn't be a disaster, but we need to win.

Chesterfield A - Lose. Dunno why, but we might be able to sneak a draw out of this one. Actually, scrap that, we'll lose.

Leyton Orient H - Draw. Tough game. Keep saying Orient have some very good players and they do. We could do with winning this, but given their team, I'd take a draw.

Peterborough A - Lose. Away. Down south. On a Tuesday. Only one result. Oh and add in the fact that we always struggle at London Road, nailed on loss this one.

Walsall H - Draw. Walsall are a strange team on the road. Capable of good results, also capable of some poor ones. If we're on 48 points or more going into this one, I think I'd take a draw. If not, we might need to go and win it.

Coventry A - Draw. Got to take advantage of their crap home record, they should be safe by the time we roll into town. Might need a win from this one, but I'd take a draw.

Bradford H - Win. Fingers crossed neither side has anything to play for, especially us. Hopefully we finish strong regardless, we usually do. Going for a tight win, only if we've got something to play for mind.

Oldham (A)- Win. 87 points

Swindon (H) Loss. they just tend to beat us. 87 points

Preston (A) Draw. Cagey game. 88 points.

Bradford (A) Draw. Don't think we have a great record against Bradford. 89 points

Coventry (H) Win. Home advantage to see us over the line, hopefully Coventry will have pulled clear from danger by this game leaving them with nothing to play for. 92 points.

Chesterfield (A) Win. 95 points.

Walsall (H) Win. 98 points.

14 points from final 7 games to take us up as Champions.

Coventry (H) Win

I think i've been fairly conservative there but that still gives us 95 points and almost certainly the league title. :)

Crawley (H) - Win, even though this has shithouse 1-0 win with Mathias Pogba tap in off the shin or Izale McLeod (pen) all over it.

Chesterfield (A) - Draw, I think this game is very winnable though, when we were absolutely atrocious pre-Ajose and Uche we held Chesterfield with Doyle, Clucas and Roberts in the side quite comfortably. Now we have better attacking options we have a chance of a result here but a draw will suffice.

Leyton Orient (H) - Loss, There always has been a group of sides who, no matter how shit they are or how good we are, always get a good result at Gresty Road. Orient are part of a group that includes Shrewsbury, Rotherham, Stevenage, Bournemouth, Oldham, Doncaster (8-0 JPT mauling apart) and Notts County. I reckon this is a game we'll dominate and get sucker punched.

Peterborough (A) - Loss, Never seem to win at London Road and they'll be going for playoffs so a tough ask.

Walsall (H) - Win, a must win game I expect us to win.

Coventry (A) - Draw, reckon Coventry will be safe and play a few of the youth, think we might still be in the mix at this time so a nervous performance a la Bristol City last season will see us pick up a point.

Bradford (H) - Draw, reckon we'll be playing to stay up and Bradford will be playing for Top 6. This draw will give us 54 points and should be enough to keep us up.

Got to target 16 points to reach 100:

Oldham A: Win, they seem an easier prospect than earlier in the season.

Swindon H: Win, their poor form has taken the edge off but we need revenge. Hopefully with Thompson, Toffolo and Stephens sent off for fighting each other.

Preston A: Draw, we will go there and close the game down similar to the Dons away.

Bradford A: Lose, anything is possible on that pitch.

Coventry H: Win, the promotion clincher but it wont be easy.

Chesterfield A: Win, we will have too much for this inconsistent team.

Walsall H: Win but I hope it doesnt relegate them.

Whatever happens in the other games, it's a given that we'll lose at Bradford. No matter how good we are and how bad they are, they always somehow take points off us!

If I use my head rather than the panic mode I'm in:

Colchester Home - Win - they are almost gone, surely we will put in one more pumped up performance. (51 points)

Rochdale Away - Lose - they were poor at Vale Park but expect them to be better at home

MK Home - Lose - two close games already this season but they'll be fired up trying to win promotion despite being fairly hit and miss.

Scunthorpe Away - Draw two sides in poor form, think we will get a point (52 points)

PNE Home - Lose, no doubt be more about the antics of Garner than the quality on the pitch

Yeovil Away - Win, they seem to be doomed and will probably be long down by then (55 points)

Fleetwood Home Draw - typical end of season dead rubber (56 points)

Would take that right now!

That would give us 50 points, but probably not enough to survive.

When we beat you 3-4 at your place in the FA Cup, that was a fairly close game I will give you that.

When we won 1-0 at Stadium:MK in the league, we dominated the game and had 18 shots to your 3 (though you did have to play with 10 men for just over half the match after Chris Lines vicious assault on Dele Alli...but we were already 1-0 up by then).

Rochdale (H) - 3/4/15 - must win game to put the pressure on Swindon and MK who play each other the day after. WIN 3-1

Bradford (A) - 6/4/15 - another 2,000 plus following, draw then. DRAW 1-1

Bristol City (H) - 11/4/15 - think they will either be up or need a result to go up and will no doubt bring a few thousand. Not sure why but can see us doing the double over them. WIN 2-1

Gillingham (H) - 14/4/15 - must win. WIN 3-0

Port Vale (A) - 17/4/15 - Friday night, win to put pressure on the chasing teams. WIN 2-0 (Garner double)

Notts County (A) - 21/4/15 - their home record is abysmal but they will probably have a new manager in and be fighting for survival. DRAW 1-1

Swindon (H) - 25/4/15 - last home game of the season, could be a promotion decider. WIN 3-2

Colchester (A) - 3/5/15 - hopefully all done by this game. DRAW 0-0

Oldham (A) - Going for our standard 2 goal away win here

Swindon (H) - Would LOVE to win this but we never seem to beat these of late. DRAW - probably a dodgy pen to them or something

Preston (A) - Several thousand City make the trip to see the win that seals promotion, what a day that would be

Bradford (A) - Bit after the Lord Mayor's show, dodgy pitch, never do well up there - LOSE

Coventry (H) - Comfortable win, title celebrations, pitch invasion in the sunshine. Just hope Cov are out of trouble by then.

Chesterfield (A) - Not much to say here, another win

Walsall (H) - Win to get to the 100 mark. They'll be sick of seeing us lift trophies against them :bg1:

We could potentially relegate them as well. Imagine that...poor bastards

61 points for our first season in league 1. Pretty good considering quite a few predicted little Fleetwood would finish bottom. Encouraging for next season
