A game we really need to win to end our poor home form and end any worry about relegation.Play strongest side in this and if we win then rest a few at Watford before having to play 2 days later in the FA Cup replay against Bradford.

We can't score on the road, Reading struggle to score at home, everything points towards a logic-defying 3-3 draw.

Being perfectly frank, it's a game we've got to be looking to take something from, given our comparative freshness, having not played at the weekend, and being free of any cup distractions. Though again, it doesn't always work out like that.

I would happily take a draw from this given our form and the tough game we had on Saturday.

If either team wins than they can start planning for next season.

2-1. Safety assured now surely, reckon we need 3 points from our final 10 to confirm it (and that's if Wigan/Millwall pick up form).

13 clear, 10 to play. Rest up on Saturday and go all in for the Cup!

Very good performance.Always looked a threat going forward and fairly solid at the back.Without Pog we didn't just pump long balls in the air. There was more stuff on the floor, more through balls attempted.The only time Brighton looked like scoring was from dead ball situations.Never looked like scoring from open play.Safety is secured.We would have to have a monumental collapse and Wigan and Millwall to improve drastically.

Rest a few on Saturday before Mondays replay with Bradford.
