    Should always be one game at a time I know, but looking at the games coming up the next 6 games are all against teams in the bottom half of the table. I suppose it means nothing and weve got a tough trip to Oxford on a Tuesday night and Wimbledon wont be as easy as the league table suggests, But that said what would people deem a realistic tally points wise in the next 6?

    Then its a big one against Pompey so hopefully when that comes around we might be in a solid position.

    I think if we win all 6 we’ll definitely be in the top two, and then stay there.

    Same return as the last 6 against mostly top 10 teams will do me

    People keep mentioning this but we've done well this season against the top teams and slipped up a few times against lower placed ones who've done a job on us in terms of energy, aggression etc

    If we want automatic we need to get on a run. We have been very good recently if we can continue to build momentum then I think it's very much on.

    All winnable games if we don't get complacent and our players continue to put in the same levels of performance seen in the last few weeks.

    We've struggled when teams have parked the bus IMO, hopefully Stendel has a solution going forward

    That's the issue isn't it, hopefully weve learned from previous situations where teams have parked the bus against us. Bradfords team today on paper looked defensive minded prior to kick off and we dealt with them easy enough so hopefully more to come.

    Had a glance at Sunderlands fixtures and they've got 4 of next 7 at home and don't play anyone currently in the top 10, These next few weeks could be interesting.

    Today's game was the first one where we've faced opponents outside of the top ten
    places since we beat Bristol Rovers on October 27th. In our next five games we play
    two teams in Rochdale and Scunny who up to today had the worst defensive records
    in the league. We've done quite well against some of the top teams, but even though
    the games against AFC Wimbledon (A), Rochdale (H), Oxford (A), Scunny (H) and
    Gillingham (A) look very winnable, we can't take anything for granted and must keep
    focussed taking one game at a time. As others have said if we can get maximum points
    from these games injuries and suspensions permitting,we will be well and truly in the mix
    for automatic promotion.
