Horrible feeling at mo. We have to win one of those games to stay up and then beat Barnsley. Anything else and we are down.

First 15 mins we were really poor, the next 75 mins I thought we controlled the game and played some of the best football for a long time. The last min goal is an absolute sickner and young Gallagher won't sleep tonight. Dunn was going fucking mental at him on the sidelines.

I'm too pissed off to write anything else!!!

Yes, really awful feeling. I think that goal could prove very costly to the success of our campaign.

Meanwhile, for a bit of light relief, check out this comment I came across, about our captain fantastic looking to move on, "However, it appears Lowe has outgrown Tony Mowbray's side and will be seeking a move elsewhere in the summer."

What a joke! #worstplayerintheteam

Football is such a cruel mistress sometimes. How quickly fortunes can change.

Absolutely insane result.

At least we've got a chance. Gotta keep scoring, getting some 3's is a necessity.

Strangely, one of the most annoying results of the day was Lambert's shitty Wolves winning very comfortably at Fulham. Somewhat devalues the 'fantastic' point we've been banging on about all week :oops:

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.

We finish the season barnsley, forest, Bristol, villa. That run will determine if we stay up or not. The next two are difficult, but we're in good form and if we can stay within reach of safety going into the last 4 fixtures it's in our hands....
