Fulham travel to Birmingham for the last “proper” game of the season
Even though it’s a “full card” on Sunday when all games are played at the same time, in truth there’s only two games of interest to us?, Birmingham v Fulham and Cardiff v Reading. If Cardiff fail to get a better result than us then we’ll get automatic promotion however if they beat Reading then for us its 3rd place and the play-offs!
We’re still unbeaten after 23 games, thats better than Man City! in any league that’s a fantastic achievement and we’ve played some beautiful stuff as well as grinding out a result or two. Cardiff have won 3, lost 3 and drawn 1 in the last 7 games (all in April) however their home form has been formidable, they’ve only lost 4 games all season (we beat them 2-4) while Reading’s away form has been ‘indifferent’ they’ve only won 5 away games so far this season.
So assuming Cardiff get the win then there are some other games that will have an impact on who gets the last top six and therefor a play-off place. Derby (72) are currently in 6th, Preston NE (70) are 7th and Millwall (69) are 8th with no other teams able to catch Derby.
games of interest include…
