    I thought we’d get a point today and a point at home to Brentford. I hoped Bolton and/or Birmingham would lose all their remaining games meaning we’d stay up on goal difference. Birmingham have now gone safe I reckon, so here’s hoping Bolton continue to lose and we can do better than I hoped in the remainder.

    However if you, as we have all season, allow the opposition to score in at least 50% of their on target efforts and at the other end require 5 or 6 on target to score you are going to win a minute amount of games and pick up a few draws.

    Fingers and toes crossed.

    Bolton are at Burton next match. That could give Burton a chance.

    You’re right, looks like we could well need a win as well as a draw now - which is highly unlikely.

    For my money, we need Burton to win that one. Then hope they both lose their last one. If Bolton win it then we need 2 wins from 3 and even that might not be enough.

    Burton must feel they a great chance now, beat Bolton and that could be all they need. I’d not seen that.

    The Burton v Bolton game is catching everyone out. The BBC's Final Score didn't pick up on the fact that Sunderland were down because of it either.

    Think Brentford will come and beat us they still have a shot at the play offs. Derby may need something last day too. Looks ominous now

    I reckon we need four points from our remaining games. I just can't see it anymore; we've had our chances and not taken them.

    We can’t hold on for a win to save our lives, lose at Forrest and I give up

    At least we aren't Chesterfield, who need to win their last 3 games by a combined total of 20 goals.

    I nearly got a ticket for Leeds but decided not after the Bolton game. Then I was thinking of driving down to forest on Tuesday but think I won't bother now. If Bolton beat Burton next week then it's a good bet that it will be relegation day.
    The Forest game is absoulety must win now. I just don't think we have it in us. We really need to hope Forest don't "turn up"
