Well after todays results, Bolton fall by the wayside. Have Ipswich? 5 points off 6th having played more than the 3 teams directly above them. Only 8 matches left for them.
From where you were when Cook got the chop you've given it a good go, the frustration must be the early part of the season when you dropped points easily, much like us, but gives you expectations for next season.I suspect so. We’ve been holding on for so long now, chasing down the pack with our good form (now includes 8 clean sheets in 9!) but everyone else keeps winning so if we drop any points it’s going to cost us!
Today’s offside goal was flagged offside for Woolfenden who didn’t touch the ball during the freekick but was close to Burgess so was maybe the correct decision…
Either way, we’ve got Oxford and Plymouth next which HAVE to be wins now in my opinion.
I’m trying to decide whether I want Plymouth or Portsmouth to win in the week or whether a draw is best?
From your point of view it's got to be a Portsmouth win. They don't have the points on the table and could still screw up their games in hand. Plymouth win tuesday they are 8 points ahead, pretty much out of sight of you which would leave you fighting for one place with 3 other clubs. It's a tough ask.I’m trying to decide whether I want Plymouth or Portsmouth to win in the week or whether a draw is best?
I'd agree. We'll be cramming our last 8 games into 25 days. We've a small squad and it's hard to see us getting enough wins given the circumstances.From your point of view it's got to be a Portsmouth win. They don't have the points on the table and could still screw up their games in hand.
Just talking about that to one of my lads a few minutes ago. He is up for Burton and Wycombe, but a bit unsure of Wigan. I think he found Bolyon a long long journey. My mate asked him yesterday what time he got up so we could get the coach. His reply: “I don’t know and don’t remember actually getting up, but I was vaguely aware of mum and dad shouting at me.”Fair play to Plymouth, that win at Bolton was huge. I’m expecting a large green army at the DW for our final home game of the season as that could be a massive one for both teams.
I’ve felt Wigan and Rotherham have been up for a while now. Similarly MK have been sure fire for some time and will likely finish third.Well, I think that's Rotherham and Wigan pretty much got the autos. Rotherham 7 points ahead having played the same as us. WIgan 3 points ahead plus still 2 games in hand. I just can't see either of them capitulating that lead.
So playoffs - Us (hopefully), then any combination of 3 from 5 now. I don't see Ipswich making up the ground.
There are still 24+ points for each team to play for though. Stranger things have happened.
