After beating Wednesday and finally starting to pick up a bit of we can't get 3 points from Wigan I do despair

sky have given up with airing Forest vs Derby xD. Even their bored of the circus at those clubs now. 

Sheff Weds vs Reading tomorrow night is a big game for the play-off picture. Can see the Owls winning that. 

Newcastle play before probably the biggest game of the day at the top of the league - Leeds vs Brighton. Leeds have drawn a couple recently but haven't dropped further as the teams directly below them have dropped points as well. Pressure will be on Brighton though as they'll know Newcastle's result and will either need to win to keep up with them or win to go to the top.

Never before has a match mattered so little for us than this weekend's game despite both ourselves and Doncaster needing the points. Our biggest battle coming up isn't this weekend, it's in the courts on Monday. 

If Accrington put five on us in midweek, Doncaster could hit double figures on Saturday.

We gave dipped a little recently and it'll be a difficult game but we can win this if on form tomorrow.

For the betting types among you, you could consider the following:

Tom Lawrence to score against us (been on good form since joining on loan and is facing a former club)

A goal to be scored against us in the last 10-15 minutes of the game (we've conceded a goal after 80 minutes in the last three games)

quite a bad injury for Jonathan Hogg. 14 minutes delay while he got tended to and put on a stretcher in a neck brace.

Bristol City score! Defensive mistakes from Huddersfield lead to Lee Tomlin going through on goal, rounding the keeper and finishing easily.

Bristol City now 3-0 up. Will go up to 20th and push Blackburn back in the relegation zone.

Astonishing from Bristol City tonight - I'm guessing that's a lot of accas ruined before the weekend has even begun.

Anyway - Northampton have nothing to play for this season, and we've just slapped Fleetwood and Gillingham with Bradford City reject Filipe Morais getting SEVEN assists in those two games. So, a 1-0 loss with a Morais own goal then. I'm still refusing to be positive about our chances - it's the hope that kills you.

Ha, unfuckingbelievable.

So poor for much of today, but there's a feeling amongst everyone that even if we go a goal down, we'll still win. We experienced a bit of this confidence earlier in the season around November/December, but it was still underlined by the feeling of 'this is still going to end in tears'. Seems to be a bit more real now...

The atmosphere is coming back, the belief is coming back, and Scunthorpe and Fleetwood are going to bottle it. 9 cup finals remaining.

Thought it was a deserved win overall. Ipswich had the odd great chance but other than that or the goal, they didn't do much else. While we weren't amazing, we put in a solid performance from back to front and couldn't ask for more. Zohore with two more goals today as well and would be great if he could finally get a hat trick.

On another note, Newcastle fucked up my accy. Cheers you cunts.

Fucking Bristol City last night. Where the hell did that result come from :40_rage: terrible result for us.

Heartbreaking today conceding in the last minute. Thankfully all results bar last night went in our favour but it could be a big 2 points dropped. Sam Gallagher showing his naivety; just before they scored he was near the corner flag and should of kept possession yet he put the ball into the box when none of our players were anywhere near. Preston go up the other end of the pitch and score. We owe Preston, they have taken 4 points from us with 2 very late and undeserved goals.

All I can say is thank you Villa and in particular Brentford, for coming from 3-1 down to beat Burton 5-3. Forest also down there with us now and we have yet to play them and Bristol City.

Slow. Unimaginative. Didn't take any risks.

We need these 2 weeks off to get the likes of Gayle, Hayden and Shelvey fit.

Going to have to squeeze over the line here.

Won't be a 100 point season that's for sure.

Funny game. At one point we matched Donny and looked more than worth our equaliser. Doncaster then pulled away but they got there through a helping hand from our back four, who were young, inexperienced and devoid of any confidence.

Beat Norwich and being the form side in the league I'd say we're a dark horse for the final playoff spot. I think this year is to soon for us though this squad needs to gel properly

Awful game yesterday, didn't look like scoring. Didn't look like conceding either, Birmingham are awful. 

Looking at the bigger picture we are one week closer to the finish line with Huddersfield not making any ground over us. Not arsed about Brighton as they have the easiest run in and I think will win the league.

Two home games against Burton and Wigan next. Win both and we should be well on the way, especially off Huddersfield slip up again.

Did you see micky Gray on the championship highlights say on another day we could have won by 3 or 4 xD

It just goes to show it is daft to have a studio panel try and analyse every single game that day.

Never seen it but he talks some shite. Seen Lee Ryder say that Kuzsak was the reason we didn't win. He made some good saves but if we played with the same intensity we did at Brighton we would have scored a couple. 

Hopefully this two week rest rejuvenates us physically and mentally.

I know Birmingham gave him man of the match but we only had 3 shots on target . Micky Gray probably gets his match analysis from Lee Ryder and friends.

Please take 6 points from those two games. I give up if either of those teams take any points from SJP.

Wouldn't be shocked if we fail to win both. Haven't won back to back home games for 4 years and if you were at SJP in December you'll know our players have a tendency to think the jobs done by turning up!
