By that reckoning the Brewers need 7 wins from 14 games to gain promotion.
I would think that is very achievable with our current squad as we seem to be getting stronger as the season goes on.

I reckon it'll take far more than 46 points to get safety this season. I base this on the fact that we are only five wins from reaching the predicted safety (technically four wins and a draw but we don't do draws)... I can certainly see us getting those five wins in the 14 games we have remaining, based on our recent form five or six wins... however the teams around us seem to be on the same sort of form, that cluster of teams around the relegation zone has been as tight as that for a while. So I predict that come the last week, Hartlepool will be gone, but Carlisle, Mansfield, York, Tranmere and possibly Cambridge will all have around 50-53 points and all will be to play for. Definitely think that unless someone (more likely Cheltenham than anyone else) totally crumbles, the team that finishes second-bottom will have more than 50.

I think the promotion points total will come down as well, as those gunning for promotion choke and drop points (us very much included in the choking bit).

No way is predicted safety 46 points. 50 is always the mark you have to aim for anyway. I also think 70 will probably do you for the PO's as well.

Saying that with the relegation total it can end up still being low.

Hartlepool at this rate won't get 40 points, they'd even now need some decent form to get 40 points so that can be ruled out.

it only needs one of that bottom clump of 5-6 teams to go on a horrendous winless run or say win only 1-2 games in the remaining lot (and that is not impossible considering they are all crap) and suddenly that relegation mark could be 38-40 points. Cheltenham for example have taken only 8 points from the last 14 matches with only 1 win, if they were to do the same in their last 14 games it would mean 39 points for them in total.

although I still always say aim for 50 points, its usually the safe-water mark and your unlucky if you go on that.

of course fixtures also start to come into play, York have played nearly all of the top 7 sides now, as will Carlisle after this weekend, Mansfield have 4 of the top 7 left to play and Dagenham have 5 of the top 7 left in their fixtures.

You appear to be missing us. 8 points from the last 6.

We set a target of 55 points to see us safe before the season started and we've hit that, it will be close this season with around 5 or 6 teams scrapping to stay up on the final day i reckon as it's so close right now.

Can't see it being 50 points to stay up this season. Think high 60s might do it for the playoffs too
Hope you are right. Looking at our fixtures I think we will reach 50. Just noticed our of the current top 12, only Southend and Burton have beaten us at home this season. We've played 9 out of 12 at home too. With Cheltenham and Hartlepool still left to play away we really need to be picking some away points up there!

I think we will be fine now, Adam Murray has turned us into a very good home side recently. A win and a draw to take us to 49 points would see us near enough safe, whereas I think we will finish around 60 points.

Don't make me eat humble pie Mansfield!

60 points? You'll have had a very good end to the season to achieve that, playoff form
We managed it last season. I hope we can finish on 60 again but I've said 55. Our next 2 games are Hatelepool A and York H. We also still have Tranmere, Cambridge and Accrington to play. Southend, Shrewsbury and Plymouth will more than likely all end in defeats though.

60 maybe a bit ambitious but I believe we can beat anybody at home recently after we've beat yourselves, Luton, Stevenage and should've beat Northampton bar a last minute penalty.

I think we will pick up another 7 points at least from home games which would take us to 52 points with 5 away games. Pretty confident we will finish between 55-60 points.
