Sneaking into must win territory this because in spite of our games in hand, if we fall into the bottom 4 we won't get back out again.

In our previous 3 meetings against teams bottom of the league when we played them, we've lost all 3. It's what we do. Bottom of the league? You can have the points. On a shit run? We'll give you a helping hand. Club in turmoil? We've got your back.

After our shambolic transfer window, which has left us with a talented but made of glass striker, a young lad who has only played about 6 sub appearances in his career, and Ryan Loft who I would say would be lucky to get a game with the Dog and Duck, the guy is useless. That's our strikers until at least mid April.

We've got to hope that these new midfielders are as talented as we've been told, otherwise we're in big trouble.

We’ve been great since Dan Agyei has got fit. Hearing that he’s done for the season, so that’s us fucked. We’ll be limping to 50 points from here so The Worst Team In The League™ will have a chance.

We are terrible AND we signed a striker on deadline day who is injured!!!!

Enjoy your piss easy win this afternoon.

If we lose this the fan base is going to lose its head even more than it already is. Those two home games this week would be pretty vocal I think. They will have no excuses when they’ve actively chosen not to sort either problem position out or get in any striker considering one is pretty much out for the season. It’s absolutely bonkers not to even get a young loanee at worst. Any relegation is now purely on the DOF and owners really and a loss today will ramp up a lot of anger I think.

We’ve made probably a million quid in player sales in a few months so no excuse.

Big big month up, 8 games, 4 against sides currently in the bottom 4, home game against an out of form Lincoln, mid table Orient and a Stevenage side we’ve competed with three times already this season aside from Peterborough away they are all winnable ones and we need a healthy 12-14 points from them 8 really to be comfortable.

Now confirmed as a sell out today.

Think Eisa & Woods will start, Cummins on the bench

Facing one of our bogey teams on Saturday in Barnsley that are excellent away from home and we have no defence . I have a very bad feeling about this . Lose and we drop to 4th .
Snatch your hand off for a point.
Exactly my thoughts

Signed Dom Gape until the end of the season to plug our threadbare midfield.

Any good Wycombe fans?

Odd line up, no Gore, new lads on bench and Lowe in midfield is a disaster.

Only positive is Ojo back and on the bench.

Pompey deservedly ahead. Could be a long afternoon.

Oh yes, the real bummer I am missing the game going to a birthday bash at PNE match against QPR, can't be any worse than Highbury - surely?

Since Reading got mildly interesting with their kamikaze descent into madness, I think PNE are probably the most boring club in the entire EFL. Give Paul Smyth a good booing from me.

And predictably after playing well and losing against the likes of Derby and Bolton, we come out against Wycombe playing like fucking spastics. We're goners.

Portsmouth 2-0 up and they've had one chalked off for offside and missed a penalty. And Hoskins has come off with a hamstring injury. Other than it's going great.

Speaking of playing like spastics add us to that. Once again the left side of our defence is a liability. Now three halves and counting an opposition keeper could easily get the deckchair out.

Conceded from a sloppy set piece. Barnsley have had the best 2 chances but we have absolutely dominated. Really strange game.

I called it before the game. We're your ideal team to play when on a shite run. Plenty of possession and corners but to have no shots on target against what looks like a dire Fleetwood team is unacceptable. One half of football for Crosby to save his job?

The Cambridge fans are absolutely right, Burton are such a dirty side.

Horrible first half, can't remember seeing a pitch so terrible, all Burton want to do is pass to Caprice who will smash it up to Hudlin. 4 cards from Burton. Having said that, very naive from Mitchell, with the ref as he is, giving two quick yellows to send him off after 30 mins.

Last 10 mins we've actually looked the better side trying to play football, with Jackson missing a big chance at the end.

Well we’ve no strikers to call on so games gone now, can’t see how we turn this around. 4 times now we’ll have lost to bottom of the league this season.

Unlucky to be behind, ref got in the way. Rovers more physical than us, surely we will see Eisa come on early doors in the second half

Yes.

He's very good...BUT...injury record is shocking.

We'd never have let him go were it not for that (and neither, I imagine, would Sutton United).

Anyway.

Amazingly, 2-0 up at Whaddon Rd.

Both sides looking entirely deserving of their lowly league position to be honest, but Chelts looking far the better side for the initial 15-20 mins, more up for it, winning more of the ball, and us offering practically nothing in attack.

But then we scored an abysmally shite scrambler from a corner totally against the run of play - which is exactly what you need when you're on a poor run.

And then McCleary scored a great solo goal out of nothing.

A very physical game with both sides laying into it...our centre backs appear to be walking a fine line though with some serious bear hugs going on, and one's booked, so they have to be careful in the second half.

Long, long way to go and we're entirely capable of pissing a 2-0 lead away, but we desperately need the cushion against the relegation zone in advance of a terrible run of fixtures for the rest of Feb.

No danger, we don't do comebacks and certainly not the way we've played today.

Your first goal is exactly the sort of goal we need but never seem to get - a proper scrappy, messy one. Curtis Davies should have scored one after about 10 minutes but forgot how to kick a ball properly.

Awful half. Truly terrible. We’re getting worse by the week.

It’ll be a miracle if we get to Easter and aren’t mathematically down.

2-0 Fleetwood now. Don’t care if we come back (we won’t) Crosby should be sacked immediately. Enough is enough, what happens when you try to be cheap and appoint a PE teacher as manager.

I think with all the injuries in midfield we expected to be turned over by Portsmouth, but this is an embarassing performance really.

We will be fine we’ve just thrown on our youth 16 year old striker… if the club is apathetic why shouldn’t the fans be. Embarrassment. That’s Carlisle and Fleetwood with 2 wins between them in about 20 odd games combined… guess who those two wins were against!

If Carol Shanahan and Dave Flitcroft have anything about them they’d get on the phone to Gareth Ainsworth and give him whatever he wants. This can’t go on. I feel for Andy Crosby as he’s a nice bloke but he’s not a manager and it seems at this point we are living proof of the old saying about the definition of insanity.

I would say it’ll be toxic against Orient midweek but no c*** will be there.

We were better first half… they were better second half. Probably a fair result.
