If Sheffield Wed beat WBA tonight we are still in with a chance. Never give up hope.

I can see Brentford winning every game in their run-in

It is possible, the win will give the players some momentum, but they need to 'turn up and be relentless'. They are in a fight, 'half hearted' performances and it will be over for the 'automatics'.

As I've said, it's an 'average Championship' this season. You can tell by the results being thrown up every week.

Several posters keep claiming that this is a poor (or average) Championship season because lower placed teams regularly beat better placed teams. As far as I can recall, none of those posters so far has however managed to produce a single logical argument for why such results have to indicate a lower overall standard. In my opinion.

No Chance
+1
Let us be honest, we could easily have lost last night, west Bro., Forrest and Cardiff are not going to miss chances like QPR missed last night.
Sorry , no chance of automatic promotion and can't see us winning against Brentford or Forrest in the play offs.

Yes, I agree that we could have easily lost. By far our worst performance after the break in my opinion. But maybe we should then be honest in both directions and acknowledge that we could easily have won against both Brentford and Leeds. Or does this only work against Fulham?

Let's hope so - I wouldn't relish them in the play-off final.

Of course there is a chance, albeit a slim one. 

However take a look at the GD table, it tells a depressing story.  We are not even close to those clubs competing for the top 2 slots.  Sorry, we just don't score enough goals and that will deny us a top two promotion slot.
