They are certainly tough looking games but maybe that's a good thing. Town do seem to perform better against stronger opposition. I reckon 2 wins and 2 draws is quite possible, maybe better. I'm not going to predict where they will come from though!! Mind you 8 defeats is also possible - ask Doncaster (thank goodness for them! One point from their last 36 - incredible!)

Sheffield, Gillingham and Peterborough could be potentially profitable games.

I feel that Wigan will cause us problems thus Saturday though.

We are now only two points clear of the bottom four,and with knight Persival and Whitbread out, plus the loss of Brown, i cant see were the 6 points we need are going to come from,Whitbread may only be suspended for one game.?

It's getting a bit hairy isn't it?

Not to worry though. I reckon we'll pick up a couple more wins, possibly somewhere quite unexpected - ask Burton and Sheffield Utd.

It's unfortunate that the four danger teams (Oldham, Blackpool, Fleetwood and Chesterfield - I sort of rule out Doncaster although perhaps I shouldn't) all seem to have run into a bit of form. But Blackpool only have 5 games left - they have to go to Fleetwood, Rochdale and Peterborough. They also have the prospect of Wigan at home and we all know what that could mean! Their other home game is against Colchester who are another team to have done well recently. So Blackpool are my tip to go down with Crewe, Colchester and Doncaster

But it does depend on Town getting a couple of wins. If they lose their remaining 7 games all bets are off!! Oh God! I can hardly stand it! 50 years a Town fan and once again they are putting us through the wringer. My wife can't understand why I put myself through it and to be honest I can't really explain it to her.

Just for fun I predict wins against Sheffield Utd and Peterborough and draws with Bradford and Walsall. And, from a position of safety, we will end up by stuffing Swindon on 8 May!
