Running in behind, chasing down, pressing - that's about it for me. Technically a very poor player as seen by his miss today and in general play very poor. Strange decision to start him infront on his own today.
2 wins from 3 has markedly improved our situation! Got a great chance over the next month to put some proper daylight between ourselves and the drop zone too - could be almost safe come the start of April. On the flip side, lose to the teams around us and we're back in it again.
Still relatively confident we'll finish about 16th.
2 long overdue wins on the bounce vs Posh and Donny have certainly helped matters and with Wimbledon, Rochdale and Plymouth the next 3 games hopefully we can get some momentum going and pick up a few more points towards to 50ish point safety target
Think Wycombe have just about done enough and their fixture list doesn’t look too bad, think they’ll still pick up a few more points here and there.
I said after our game against Accrington that they would eventually end up down there, just looked at their fixture list and I think they’ll go with the current bottom 3. They still have to play a couple of the teams at the bottom who will start scrapping for their lives and still face 5 of the top 6
We have certainly entered this thread now. It's not been helped by the fact we've played Luton, Charlton, Donny, Pompey and Barnsley since the end of Jan. I'm not panicking yet I think 50 points will be enough I'm still backing us to achieve that with more easier games on paper approaching.
From the outside I don't understand the Hill sacking. Only man in the last five decades to win promotion for Rochdale and he's done it twice. Kept them in League 1 for years when it's above their normal level. Now not even given until the end of the season. Can't see why Saturday would have been the final straw either, losing only 2-0 away at the league leaders (with the second goal only coming in injury time when they were down to 10 men).
