    ...and we don't need to worry about Leeds, Forest and Brentford.

    We’re Barnsley though, we don’t do things the “easy” way!

    Wigan will be a very hard game given the form they are showing. The others we need to win to give ourselves a chance.

    Hopefully Wigan will be on the beach by the time they come to us. They are very nearly safe.

    If we stay up with Liam Lindsay and Adam Davies being relegated with Stoke, I would happily accept that to show them the grass isn't always greener elsewhere.

    Wigan are on fire I think they could be tougher than Leeds and Forest
    If we can get 6 points from the next 9 or even 7 I would be ecstatic Luton won’t be an easy game either. Beating Stoke would be massive as it would take us above them and possibly out of the bottom 3

    if we're safe the perfect end to the season would be beating Leeds then losing at Brentford if it meant Leeds dropped out of the top two.

    I'd love Leeds to desperately need Brentford to lose to get automatic promotion only for us turn up in flip flops and sombreros.

    Well they could hardly complain - they've not done us any favours.

    They would cry and react like we'd just crapped on their front room carpet but that would make it all the more enjoyable.

    It's tough because one defeat will knock us for six. Given the form Stoke are in then it would just be our luck we gift them the 3 points on Saturday. Need to keep their confidence at rock bottom and Jack Butland is making plenty of mistakes!!

    This new, improved Mads with Sollbauer at the back has been a revelation. Keep them fit and we've a big chance at survival

    I think if Brentford and Leeds are already promoted and forest guaranteed a playoff spot then players will be rested or already mentally on the beach. Think Luton is a must not lose game. Wigan look strong, Stoke look poor. Hopefully Boro and Huddersfield draw tomorrow. Going to be very interesting run in.

    Agree. 9 might be a stretch with Wigan’s form but wins in them next two & we’ve an excellent chance when you also take into account Hull’s dreadful form.

    Not seen them tonight but from what I’ve seen in their first two games Brentford look in excellent form & Forest & Leeds will be tough games. It’s looking at the minute like Leeds could clinch automatic promotion against us & that Brentford might be battling for automatic promotion against us. Fingers crossed Forest will have already secured a play off place & have nothing to play for.

    4 from the next 2 games would do me to be honest at this stage. We HAVE to win at Stoke as that will see us leapfrog them and keep them deep deep in mix. We then simply cannot afford to lose to Luton, to me a draw there is fine as they like us have picked up form of late.

    Stokes next game after us is Leeds so you would expect them to lose that one so 4 from the next 2 would see us above them by 2 points I believe.

    Making no predictions but I fancy us more against Leeds, Forest and Brentford than I do against Stoke, Luton and Wigan. Simple reason the pressure makes teams tie up. I'd rather play Leeds with final push jitters than sombrero relaxed Leeds, same applies to Brentford and Forest. I think good sides which they undoubtedly are play even better when the pressure is off.

    I honestly think the games against the lesser sides could be our undoing.

    I think we'll do very well to get anything from Wigan, they're absolutely tearing it up at the minute. Luton have shown they're bang up for the fight and it's going to be a case of who wants it more. Stoke - if both teams play as they have been since the restart then we've a great chance of 3 points.

    I think 9 points is a bridge too far, 6/7 would be a terrific achievement, 3 or 4 is more realistic. Fewer than that would be disastrous. Basically, I've no idea and will spend each and every game biting my fingernails down to the quick.
