  • Wycombe are already relegated as one of Derby & Sheff Weds will take points off each other.
  • Sheff Weds need to beat Derby and hope Rotherham lose against Cardiff
  • Rotherham have to win at all costs and hope Derby lose
  • Derby have to win to be completely sure of safety. If they draw, they need to hope Rotherham don't win at Cardiff  


  • Portsmouth have to match Oxford & Charlton's results to ensure they stay in 6th place
  • Oxford can draw and hope Portsmouth & Charlton lose to climb up one spot. A win and a Portsmouth loss will also suffice.
  • Charlton have to win and hope Oxford & Portsmouth don't to get to 6th. If they draw and Oxford & Portsmouth lose, they will go in to 6th as they have scored more than Pompy.  


  • The title is still up for grabs!
    • Cheltenham just have to match Cambridge & Bolton's results to secure 1st place
    • Cambridge need to win and hope Cheltenham draw (Cambridge have better GD) or lose.
    • Bolton have to win to get 1st, but also just to guarantee automatic promotion whilst Morecambe's result is determined.
    • Morecambe can draw at a minimum and hope Bolton lose to get automatic as they have better GD over Bolton.


  • Play-off places
    • Bolton & Cambridge need to match Morecambe's result to avoid play-offs.
    • Cambridge could finish 4th if both Bolton & Morecambe win
    • If Exeter win and one of Newport/Tranmere/Forest Green drop points then they will be in the play-offs. If they draw, they need Forest Green to lose as Exeter have better GD
    • Salford have to win but also need both Forest Green to lose & Exeter to draw/lose. 
    • Forest Green just need to match whatever result comes of Exeter & Salford's games.
    • Newport could miss out if they lose and all of Tranmere/Forest Green/Exeter all win (Exeter have better GD over Newport).

I'd rather Cambridge beat us if it stops Cheltenham winning the title. Can't stand them :D

In all seriousness though, I'd like to see another good performance from us. Last chance for the lads to show the manager they want to stick around next season.

Derby Sheff Wed to draw, and Rotherham to win is the dream scenario.

If there is a god, please...

I'd like to see the same as well, but think we'll go strong for our game with maybe one or two kids playing. 

Rotherham have to attack us for the win, playing a bit into our hands for the counter.

Yeah, whilst Rotherham have blown chance after chance after chance it would be nice to see two clubs that have been ran in a pathetic matter go down. Really looking forward to this.

Can’t see Rotherham winning so just have to hope for a Wednesday win. I’d rather they stay up than Derby. 

Strong lineup for us today, including your best player Harry Wilson. 

Think Rotherham will struggle, which would be a shame. 

Also, in the most surprising announcement, Bamba is on the bench.

If you’d wanna avoid all the hassle of a bidding war you can have him for 25m right now?

Nothing much happening in the Derby game in all honesty. Other than Waghorn twatting the post, nothing else has really happened. 

As I say that, Derby have a disallowed goal. Well offside. Correct decision.

Half time - Rotherham lead 1-0 and could have been more

We have been utter shite and are simply not at the races today. The only plus is that we're only 1-0 down. 

Derby vs. Wednesday is currently 0-0, meaning both will go down if results stay as is.
