    Looking at some of the fixture lists - with the bottom clubs playing each other then obviously there’s going to be some points shared out - so Barnsley have an harder task to stay up.
    I still think we will be relegated.

    Reading at 10/1 looks big given they've not won at home in 8 games and their away fixtures look awful.

    Prices reflect Betfair relegation market where punters set the prices.The others all lost at home last night.If the gap over the bottom 3 gets larger then it becomes very difficult for them as games begin to run out. If it stays close we only need to match their results.

    We put in a really good performance yesterday against one of the best teams in the league and on another day we could've won. Looks to me as though Morais' playing style has started to show

    Remember all those seasons last time we were in the Championship where we were the favourites to go down - but we always escaped - until the last time. The Bookies odds reflect the way people are betting - Burton at 1-6 seems a bit harsh - I would have thought they were more likely than Sunderland to stay up

    Someone’s had a nibble, we’re into 11/4 now.
