Make or break time for us here. Win, and I think we'll go on to finish top two...especially given our injuries will clear up after the international break (Thorne and Bent could be back this week). Lose, and it's an uphill task and most likely the playoffs again.

I'm torn, one idiotic part of me is confident we can win this. But my head tells it's too much for what team we have fit.

Derby 0-1 Middlesbrough. Bamford.

Can't afford to lose this one, that will put us 5 behind Boro alone. We really could do with a win but I'm not too confident.

Hoping we can scrape a 1-0/2-1.

Lose this and we probably have too much to do almost, win though and everything turns so much better. So much riding on this game.

I think we will try to be solid at the back and build from there maybe, unless Thorne manages to play and if so we have so much better of a chance.

I'll say we'll nick this 1-0 ;)

Tight game, Boro punishing a defensive error and it had to be that man.

We were tame, never looked like winning but a draw would have been more than fair.

We're not out of it until it's mathematically impossible but there's alot of work to do for ourselves and at the moment we're a long way off the pace.

Onto Friday, need a win.

Must win Friday, drop points and it will be too late to recover I feel, but we never looked like scoring today in all fairness. If we don't go up, then we have blown a massive chance and we may not get another for some time.
