Win the next two and see where we are.

First choice midfield will be available for the Noses, let's see if we cannot recapture some form and who knows.

If we come up short, some momentum into the summer won't go a miss.

I'd forgotten about this. Have been off work so will update the OP next week after the Derby game.

After yesterday's majesty we once more dare to dream again like a lovesick fool who receives a smile from the one that he wants.

Do we need to "do a John Gregory" and win 9 out of our last 11 now to have any hope of 6th place as DW suggests in his latest Press-punned piece? I can't see that happening but would 7 work?

Norwich and Leeds getting promoted early would probably be best for us so that our last two games have less intensity from the opposition which a lot of their success this season has been based on.

As things stand, if the top 6 all carry on accumulating points at the current rate 6th place would be Bristol City on 73-74 points. That would mean we'd need 26 points from the 33 available and possibly to improve our goal difference compared to them (we're both +8 currently). that makes 8 wins the absolute minimum requirement. To start with winning the next 3 (blues, forest and boro) would be massive because they're all '6 pointers'. Get those and then add a win over Bristol City in April and, along with another couple of wins, we'd be right back up there going into Easter.

Updated. No change after the latest lot of matches as the loss of points against West Brom was cancelled out by gains against Stoke and Derby. We are on course to miss the playoffs by five points. Last year we drew at Small Heath, won at Forest and drew at home to Boro. So if we win the next three we are on course for the top six.

I'll believe it when I see it.

Two points gained. The top six is just about conceivable. COYVB.

Current points per game until the end of the season, would see us with 61 points. Another year in the Championship "Paradise" then.

Now our current points per game would leave us on 69 points.
If we remain on our winning run we'll have 81 points.
Remaining fixtures;
March 30th v Blackburn (h)
April 6th v Bruceball FC (a)
April 10th v Rotherham (a)
April 13th v Brizzle (h)
April 19th v Bolton (a)
April 22nd v Millwall (h)
April 27th v Leeds (a)
May 5th v Norwich (h)

Nobody make predictions. The last two threads predicting results of games ended really badly.

I'm sticking to the target of 75 points so 6 more wins but by beating teams around us we've made things look much neater, if we can repeat that trick against Bristol City and Sheffield Wednesday in the next few weeks then that'd be great and might see that points target come down a little, especially if Derby, Boro and Bristol City carry on struggling for a few more weeks.

Lose at Leeds, draw with Norwich, Wednesday and win the rest (five). Should do it.

Current points per game would give us 71 points.
5 games ago our points per game would have left us with 61 points.
Too much to ask for 81 points at the end of the season??
