Beat Sheffield United and i will be confident of getting 2nd place ahead of Derby. Our last home game of the season against them, could be a cup final.

We'll finish second.

And that's a Smirker guarantee.

I want to say 2nd but the clue is in the name.Aston villa. Whenever have we done things the simple stress free way.

The odds to gain promotion at the moment are....wolves 1/20...derby. ..evens....villa 7/4.....a lot of money lately has come in for Fulham who are now 11/2.

Fulham are a big concern

They’d struggle to get second but it’s not impossible. And I really wouldn’t fancy facing them in the playoffs

By one of those weird quirks of fate I'm going to see Fulham twice - vs us on the 17th and vs Wolves the week after. Two big games for them one after the other - be interesting to see how they face up.

Depends how long this purple patch lasts, if it lasts, and what everyone else does. Obviously i guess.  We've won 4 out of 5 but that's not unusual in this league. Win the next 4 out of 5 and we'll probably be in 2nd by about 3 points. Then we'd have to do similar again to hold on to it. F**k knows is the short answer.

A lot will depend on whether we’ve now become a side that can routinely beat top 8 sides

Bristol was great but it is the only time we’ve managed it this season

So far . . .

Optimistic for 2nd and that would be bloody great. Not sure the old ticker could handle the play-offs.

I get a bit nauseous when I think about playoffs.
