After those results looks like it's 1 from 4 (Forest, Bristol, Burton and ourselves). Not sure what everyone's run in is like but our next 2 games are absolute stinkers which makes those 2 lost points even more gutting!

I remain positive and some of our play today really was very good.
I think everyone from Wolves down are still very much in the battle. Wigan probably too far gone now, but five points between us and 16th puts all those teams at risk with eight to play.

I agree but if we don't pick up some points from the next 2 games then it might be pretty much game over for us.

Yeah I'm not sure that'll be the case. You never know what will happen in this league. But all our rivals have tough games too over the next two fixtures also.

If we keep playing as well as we have been we should be fine. Should also have a fully fit squad too.

Great news so it doesn't matter if we lose both then.

Great news. Lose the next two as they no longer matter. Waste 2 more games and stay in the RZ and potentially an even bigger gap. Why do people think the last 4 games will be easy. We have struggled all season. :shrug:

He's an odd chap. Careful, though, you'll be admitted to the clique next!

I'm not the one wearing blinkers. I said we need to take points out of the next 2 games. I think we need collectively 2 or 3 points. You guys feel like we don't and will be fine if we come away with 0 points. Someone mentioned we will be ok because of the last four games we have. I don't feel comfortable playing any teams in our league. I think it's insane to think if we get 0 points from the next 2 games that we will be ok because of our remaining fixtures. We drew with the worst team in the league. We beat the best team in the league twice. The problem is we have no idea which rovers team is going to turn up. Losing the next 2 won't do our morale much good either. It's like you guys don't care if we go down. I remember when we got relegated from prem that MRB was happy. He said we would regroup and come up stronger. Got that wrong. BFS was a good sacking. Again got that wrong. Going down will not be a good thing FFS.
