For our last home “league” game of the season we welcome Sheffield Wednesday to the Cottage.
With only a draw against West Brom we’re now subject to the lottery that is the play-offs. It’s odd, getting to the play-offs should be seen as a successful season, but for some reason it doesn’t feel as it is?
Our last two “league” games are going to be non-events as effectively we’ve attained our final position. Forest, on 70, can’t catch us and we’d need either West Brom or Brentford to loose both their remaining games for us to reach 3rd and I can’t see either of them doing that.
Strangely we’re the only team in the top 10 who have “nothing” to play for, so in essence we’ve two competitive “practice” games for the play-offs, continuing our unbeaten run would be good for the fans confidence, I’m not sure if a defeat would make too much difference to the players? as I expect that they “know” they can win every game, it’s us fans who’ll suffer from the jitters.
Hopefully AK47 and Tom will be fit enough, giving AK47 two full games would go a long way? to brining him up to match fitness, if he’s available he’d be my first name on the team sheet.
I’ll be keeping an eye on Forest, Cardiff, Millwall and Swansea as we’ll have to play one of them, hopefully two of them as that would mean we’d get to the final. A win or a draw for Forest should confirm their top 6 spot but I can see Millwall sneaking past Cardiff.
Our recent games against Wednesday see them come out slightly on top with 5 wins, 4 losses and 3 draws.
