We will lose.We have nothing to play for apart from pride where as Brentford still have a chance of the playoffs.Have seen Brentford a fair amount of times on tv and the reverse fixture at Griffin Park and they have looked impressive.

We've been poor of late, gifting the opposition goals for nothing, while struggling to take our own chances.

I feel we should win, but might end up drawing through our own mistakes.

It also depends on the team Clarke picks.Now we have nothing to play for he may well play a few more of the youngsters in the squad.

Defensively we look solid and don't give too many chances away but up top we are poor as well as our set plays which have been crap.We have only taken 7 points from the last possible 33.

Got to win and hope for Ipswich to slip up. Our defence have been playing so poorly in recent weeks though that I can't see us winning.

We have only sold 3.500 aswell, pretty poor that we haven't sold out imo, it's only up the road!

Sounds like we are playing our strongest side with 1 or 2 kids on the bench.Clarke says some of the players are playing for their new contracts.

In our last 15 home games we've scored 7 (SEVEN) goals! 11 times we've failed to score.

Fuck this season... Why do we have to play these games, just adds to the embarrassment.

You're embarrassed!? In one of your worst runs of the season when you won two games in eleven, you beat us twice. :dry:

If you guys could do us a favour next week and win at the iPro, I would be eternally grateful.

We looked fine between both boxes but awful in front of both goals.Why on earth does Clarke play 4-5-1 at home and when that lone front man is Robson-Kanu its actually 0 up front.That said the fans cheering his substitution when he went off can f off.What does Norwood actually do.Average player.Bet Huddersfield couldn't believe their luck when we took him off their hands.

Thought Brentford looked good going forward but defensively they looked dodgy at times.

There is no chance of that happening.The best you can hope for is a 0-0 draw.The same can be said to Wigan and Millwall fans.We will lose at Rotherham Tuesday night and Millwall and Wigan will be relegated.

Draw doesn't do it for us I'm afraid.

Thought 2-0 was harsh on you guys today, was not a comfortable win at all. We rode our luck at times, and it's been a while since we've had any luck!!

Good win with an average performance. I think we're going to just miss out on playoffs sadly, really frustrating when you think just how many stupid points we've chucked away this year.

Completely agree. It's so annoying to see that the difference for Ipswich and Derby over the past few games has been Sears and Ince, while we failed to get someone in in January.

Lots of promise for next season!

We just lack a decent striker.When Simon Cox is your top goal scorer with 8 goals then you are are going to struggle to score goals.We have only scored 3 goals in 9 games at the Madejski.

Our league form has been dreadful, but at least Clarke now knows this current side cant cut it.There are going to be a lot of players out the door.Hopefully Clarke will get the time to bring his own players in although a fair amount of our supporters are starting to lose patience with him which is ridiculous.

This was brilliant from Pritchard. Been a joy to watch him develop and improve this season, he has a big future ahead of him.
