Looking at a Peterbro s remaining fixtures I will be surprised if they get to 70 points.
I reckon that two more wins (Plymouth and Accrington) will see us get sixth place but I also think that we might sneak a point at Sunderland or Oxford (or both).
I also think we will best Coventry.
Yes, I am an optimist.
Burton managed to draw at Sunderland, and so Sunderland lost a chance to go three points clear of the Dingles. In addition to needing the points themselves, they also play Coventry, Fleetwood and Peterborough in addition to the Rovers and so play a big part in final positions. I'd rather play the Dingles or Pompey in the play-offs.
We certainly seemed to have the "on paper" easiest run-in with just Sunderland above us and Coventry among our competition. Peterborough have Sunderland and Portsmouth plus Blackpool, Burton, and Fleetwood.
Blackpool is the only other competitor with only one game against a top five team (The Dingles).
We just have to win the "easy" ones!
I think that Barnsley will finish in fourth place and we will probably play Portsmouth in the semi final matches.
Then my prediction of a few weeks ago will come to pass, us v Barnsley at Wembley.
Happy 40th Birthday yesterday to the scorer of the best goal Wembley has ever seen
