I make it that we have 8 games where we realistically can pick up points and as things stand, 5 games where if we get a result it will be a 'bonus'.
Those 5 games are Fleetwood, Rochdale, Millwall and Bolton (aways). And Sheffield UTD (Home).
I reckon that if luck evens itself out over the remaining games we will end up with around 57/58 points. To stay on track we need 4 points from the next 3 games; the key game in that little run is of course Oldham. If we beat them then things should be rather comfortable for us.
The bottom 3 look doomed. Then theres Port Vale. They have picked up just 7 points from the 10 matches they have played since we beat them, with their only win coming at home to Chesterfield. They have a caretaker manager, a sprinkling of injuries and next up for them are Bradford, Rochdale and Southend!
Yep, very much agree with this. I'm still hopefully of picking up a few extra bonus points and sneaking into the top half, although 57-58points is not to be sniffed at and will put us 10points clear of relegation.
