You've gotta be trolling? One point off 7th and a game in hand over 2nd, 3rd and 4th. Exeter in 6th have a similarly poor GD. They had 3 GiH on us at one point and only sit 3 points ahead. In one game beat them by 2 goals and we'll be level on points and GD with them. It ain't over 'til it's over and that applies massively in this league, this season. We could easily go on to win our game in hand and be 3 points from automatic. I'm sure nearly every team from ourselves up to Wycombe are saying similar things. It could easily flounder and we end up 14th or something silly but wouldn't it be great to go into the Accy game knowing their title hopes have been settled and we need a point to capture third spot?

I imagine 3 or 4 teams all challenging for that final spot on the season decider. Sky should be creaming their pants off at this prospect, much more dramatic than the Premier league. Ok, the football is shit but there is a lot riding on this season. Enjoy the ride, as ever!

Not trolling at all. I'm ever the pessimist.

Look at today's fixtures. Our PO rivals have some very winnable games. If we lose at Exeter there could be a lot of catching up to do. Not saying we're out of it but to get a PO spot will take some effort. If we get in the POs it should be on the back of good form, which would be very positive for the PO semis.

Absolutely, but then look at Good Friday fixture and they fall lrgely in our favour. Twists and turns and all that jazz Smiley

Exeter and Cov the big gainers in the promotion hunt.

Wycombe and Lincoln both draw

Town and Stags both lose.

Still plenty to play for but we're making it more difficult for ourselves. Coventry looking like the form team in the play-off spots, they may well be the team to sneak 3rd. Mansfield had Pearce sent off and Agent DF seems to have had a cracking start up there; I make that 4 games, 3 draws and 1 loss. They seriously are on track to drop out of the play offs. Trouble is, we could easily do the same. No new manager bounce for them. Frustrating for us today as a cheap penalty (karma from last week maybe?) has cost us. Only ourselves to blame really though. Exeter behaved like a Labrador pup for the last 20mins and still managed to bad another goal.

Good Friday is a favourable set of fixtures with 4 teams in the play off hunt playing each other. We really need to win that or slight auto's will be over ad concerns will mount for missing out on play offs. GF will be PTP's biggest test for us. Time to knuckle down and see which players are really up for the fight.

Mansfield seem to be capitulating, I reckon we'll overtake them in the next couple of games.

Maybe, then it'll be a slugfest with Lincoln for that last spot..

It certainly will be funny (in retrospect) if both ourselves and Mansfield don't make PO's. More so for Mansfield and for the Egg on face that DF would have to take. Would make next season interesting. Let's see how this one pans out but I understand if the faith is slipping Smiley

 The irony is their manager is probably thinking the same.

Incredible stat on Sky Sports Saturday re Coventry.  Apparently they haven't finished in top 6 for 47 years.
