Well the death of TFF means we can't look back on how we did compared to our predictions.

9/12 pts for us for January which is a good return.

Bolton (H) - Not the straight forward game it would have been a couple of months ago, but we should be looking to win this. WIN
Bournemouth (A) - MASSIVE. And I can only see a home win unfortunately. LOSE
Rotherham (A) - Might have been worried if Revell was still there. WIN
Sheff Wed (H) - WIN
Charlton (H) - WIN
Fulham (A) - Can we scored 5 against them for a third time this season? WIN

15/18 would be an amazing return.

Wolves (A) Draw
Leeds United (H) Win
Derby (A FA CUP) Lose
Wigan (H) Win
Ipswich (A) Lose
Huddersfield (A) Draw
Nottingham Forest (H) Win

11 points from those fixtures would be a good return.

Blackburn (H) - A tough game but think we will just nick a win.
Brentford (A) - Another tricky away game against a top side - take a draw.
Bolton (A) - Much improved side since Lennon joined them and we've had a bad record at the Reebok (or whatever its called now) - Take a point again
Norwich (H) - Wow another hard game but again just about earn a win.
Rotherham (H) - Probably should win but knowing us we'll beat Norwich and lose to these guys.
Leeds (A) - Seem to do well against the top side so draw or tight win.

Must say this is a very tough month for us then - if we pick up 3 or 4 wins then that would be good.

We'll probably lose a couple,win including hammering somebody and get a draw somewhere such is our general form this season!

Bolton (H) - Home form is very good and we're on abit or a roll. WIN.
Bournemouth (A) - Think Bournemouth will edge this one. LOSE
Reading (H) FA CUP - Another strong team will no doubt be played - WIN.
Rotherham (A) - Can see us nicking a tight away victory. WIN
Sheff Wed (H) - Good team, think we'll share the points in this one. DRAW
Charlton (H) - On a bit of a slump at this moment in time, things could change over the past month but as of now, WIN
Fulham (A) - Might aswell batter them again! WIN

13/18 and through to the next round of the FA Cup would be more than acceptable.

Brentford and Derby too :tw:

We'll get 2 points, not sure where from but we're the draw specialists so we're bound to draw at least 2.

Wigan A - Win? Have a habit of draws up there, and they got a result against Ipswich so could be tough.
Derby H - impossible to call... would take a draw
Brentford A - Defeat - was very impressed with them earlier in season
Nottm Forest A - draw - Should never have lost to them earlier in season
Blackburn H - Win

A hard month, which will likely decide what we end up fighting for come May. If we can come out of it still in a good position, then we have a great chance. Chances are we'll drop down the table slightly with a slightly 'easier' March to come.

Leeds (A) - not so sure about this one, was one of our best performances at home, so hoping for an away repeat - DRAW

Watford (H) - another hard game, but if we take our chances, we'll win. Can see it going like Norwich and Boro though. Plus I've got mates coming to this game and we never win when I bring people along - LOSE

Charlton (A) - we'd better f*cking win, already taking enough grief from the missus about going to this on Valentine's day - WIN

Bournemouth (H) - think we'll get revenge actually having been the better side but lost in the away game - WIN

Blackpool (H) - should be a routine home win here - WIN

Birmingham (A) - can see Donaldson spoiling our day again - DRAW

Rotherham (A) - We really need a win given recent form and this is a decent opportunity to get one. Worried we won't get it though. DRAW
Sheffield Wednesday (H) - Probably a tight game, at most one goal in it. DRAW
Fulham (A) - Fulham seem to be beating to the teams around them and losing to the teams near the top, I guess that bodes well. WIN
Reading (H) - Don't know anything about Reading this season so let's say... WIN
Birmingham (H) - Hugely improved since Rowett took over, they seem tough to beat now. DRAW

Lots of game against midtable teams, this month could either way. If we're serious about automatic promotion then we really need to pick up a lot of points in February because our fixtures for March are significantly tougher.

Not sure I agree with that... It was a very even game. One we didn't deserve to win but I couldn't have picked either a the better side on the day.

One of the toughest tests we've had at DC all season though, and I agree you'll beat us at GP, our record there isn't brilliant anyway!

Anyway, rather optimistically gone for a few more points than I initially expected- very tough month though so we'll need to be beating Wigan/ Huddersfield if we want to stay in touch.

Wigan (A)- Win- I think we'll raise our game ahead of what we know is a horrible run of fixtures, the Watford game seemed to restore some needed confidence- hopefully Wigan are still bedding in the large no. of new signings.

Derby (H)- Lose- Very disappointed I can't make, but I think this one will spell the end of our run at the top; will only be the odd goal in it IMO but can see Derby nicking it and us struggling to break them down. Has all the potential to be a real cracker though.

Huddersfield (H)- Win- Expect a reaction from Derby, possibly not a classic performance and no where near the way we brushed them aside earlier in the season, but think we could edge it.

Brentford (A)- Lose- Our record at GP is pretty poor; I watched the way Brentford dominated early on against Middlesborough- the difference being I can't see our defence withstanding that. I also rank Jake Bidwell as the second best fullback in this league behind Simon Francis- that battle down our right will be fascinating.

Forest (A)- Win- Surely. I mean, Dougie Freedman.

Blackburn (H)- Draw- Very tough game- Can actually see Blackburn wining this but a draw should be very achievable, it's if our goals dry up, which we've shown signs of recently, that this is the sort of game to worry about.

Definitely- as I say I've been slightly optimistic- Wigan on Saturday could go either way and Forest beat us back in August (Still not sure how that happened)

Bolton (H) Not as easy as expected, and they did a good job against Liverpool. They will be tired though, and think we have some more quality. Win

Bournemouth (A) Must not lose game for sure, will be tight probably but a goal fest could come instead. Draw

Rotherham (A) I would think we can win this, but you never know... Win

Sheff Wednesday (H) They do pretty good away and their good defence could frustrate us. Draw

Charlton (H) Should be a routine win on paper.

Fulham (A) Another 5 goals to take our tally to 15 against them this season please.

14/18 would be great, but Bournemouth game could go either way.

We're on 11 so far, so will be under my rather optimistic prediction.

Only got one result correct, but we did get 9 points overall. We're still in the race which is the most important thing, can't help feeling that we a missed a couple of opportunities though.
