They may well get a lift from the gloom that has been Ken Anderson. I read his latest note yesterday to their fans (presumably for their programme) and wow. Off his pickle!

Professionalism and focus is needed. There's a good chance we could have the Play Offs tucked up tight by 3pm on Monday, but only if we're respectful of the opposition and work harder than them. Basically do what we have been doing.

An early goal please.

We can think about resting players once we are definitely in the playoffs.

Would be a huge boost to get Chester back before then.

From his press conference, it appears Dean also has one eye on catching Baggies so very much doubt resting players at this stage is in his mindset and will only consider hooking SJM once or if he hits 14 bookings (which I completely agree with).

Hmm.

Another banana skin? The start of Boltonís recovery?

Similar to the Rotherham game and that worked out ok, just.

Need to be far more prolific.

Maybe this is the game we hand out that shellacking to someone weíve promised ourselves since we got relegated.

Quite. I wonder who those nervous about this game would rather be facing. There's only one side worse than them in the division.

Also, now they've been "rescued", can we take the piss out of the pasty barm eaters?

My ideal scenario for the last 4 games would be wins against Bolton and Millwall for the magic 10 on the trot. Draw against Leeds away to get rid of the run as it could become an albatross going into the playoffs, then back to winning ways against Norwich setting us up for the playoffs.
One can but dream.

By EFL ?

It was the Bolton Safety Advisory Group and they've confirmed its proceeding.

Two of us driving up from Bournemouth tomorrow. I think last years epic journey in the snow and the crap performance has left painful memories! Hopefully Easter traffic won't be a nightmare and we can continue our fine form. UTV

I've voted draw for the last 5 games and I ain't changing now.

Yay! Another member of the (barmy) Creosote Army comes out of the woodwork.

Let's hope we'll get the recognition we richly deserve - through our continued sacrifice to ensure Play Off glory.  ;)
