Playing them at exactly the wrong time. Their confidence will be high and a victory over us could make survival a real possibility.

The upside is that a fired-up side with a defence as porous as Col U's play into our hands. We're a counter-attacking outfit and we tend to play our best, most effective football when teams commit men forward.

Wouldn't be fooled by wins over Coventry and Doncaster. Probably the two worst teams since the turn of the year.

We're still clearly going down, but one more win today would start to make things a little bit interesting. We've got seven games left, and would expect to need at least five wins just to give ourselves a chance, six should do it. So, at best, we can afford two more slip ups and possibly only one.

Clearly have to just go each game at a time but to pick up a third win on the bounce going into what would become a really big game at Blackpool next week would start to set things up nicely depending on other results.

Just can't see us winning again today, we never beat Millwall. So a defeat today would likely require six wins from six which would definitely not happen haha.

Agreed but the home game before that they drew 3-3 with Wigan and they ain't bad.

Colchester were awful at our place but aside from that they've picked up a decent points haul. Miracle escape last time to do it again would be unthinkable but you never know. Wins at Bradford and Coventry and a draw with Wigan isn't too shabby.

Wins are wins and they breed confidence. And we couldn't beat Doncaster. In fact, the seven sides who came after us easily did, but we only got a point.

Very fine margins now.

A decent enough 0-0 to watch, unlike the snooze fest with Shrewsbury a while ago. A reasonably end-to-end game, both teams had some reasonable efforts and either team could have nicked it. A draw was probably a fair result. Blackpool winning is a pain though, think we would need six wins from six now really.

At least we're generally showing some fight now. We've looked like a half decent team for the past month or so which, whilst frustrating to do it now and not for the bulk of the season, is better than going down with a whimper like we appeared set to do. Maybe it will mean we can start next season off a bit better without the hangover.

Can't moan at the result, not really in danger of losing, not doing enough to force a win.

Not a terrible result in the scheme of things, but means we have to win our remaining home games and at least 1 of the aways.
