A draw? Then still third unless Sunderland win and Charlton don’t win by three clear goals. Lose and finish 5th? Or 4th due to other results? We might even win and can sleep well tonight. Prediction? Haven’t a clue.

Charlton 4-0 up - drops us down to 4th as it stands. I can't work out if that's good or bad. We still avoid Charlton in the first play-off I guess, either way.

We’ll end up with Sunderland who will want revenge for the checkatrade final. I was hoping to get Doncaster.

Well, I'm happy to at least avoid Charlton over 2 legs.
We've done well against Sunderland and their form has dipped, as ours has. We also get the advantage (as slim as it is) of playing the home leg second.
Doncaster could be the unknown and may do us a favour and beat Charlton.
We also then have to play Charlton once t most and on neutral ground - where we seem to do quite well.
All in all, it could have been worse.

The league does pretty fairly reflect the season too. 4th place seems a fair finish to me.

It does mean we go to Sunderland on a Saturday, while they have to travel south for a Friday night fixture.

Let's face it. Predictions are pointless. 7 wins in a row. Then 2 points from 9. Who would have predicted that? Roll on the end of May. A few weeks of relaxation.

Also a guy I work with is a Sunderland fan and I’ve been giving him a bit of stick since Wembley. I Sent him an email before the match at the sol thanking him for his help and the 3 points on the Saturday.

Hoping it doesn’t come back and bite me in the bum.

Poor game really yesterday, couldn't get excited @ all. We were way below par & nearly got defeated. Lowe is obviously a huge player for us so resting him sort of makes sense. Thought Curtis played well when he came on, Ben Close overall played well & was so unlucky with the effort against the woodwork. VSO was woeful, got no football brain @ all. If only he had one because he is very quick. Olli worried me-looks completely shagged out & his replacement Bogle was poor. Morris did a impersonation of the invisible man-he needs to do more, much more because everytime I've seen him he's disappeared for long spells.
Defensively we were all over the shop @ times. Giving the ball away, skewed clearances. They were all guilty of it, even Clarke & Burgess. Just hope they've got it out of their system now.
I didn't hang around for the lap of honour as I was starving tks to the crazy k.o. time.
