Top 2 would definitely seem beyond us now. We just need to make sure we keep accumulating points so that at least 1 of the 3 teams immediately below us can't catch us.

A win today and defeat for Fulham means we only need 20 points from our last 9 games to guarantee the play offs :-D

Average for the playoffs over the last few years has been 73 points. 75 points is 95% certain to make the playoffs. We'd need to spectacularly implode to fail to average 1 pt per game till the end of the season

94th minute equaliser, hopefully that's enough.

Sounds like the mighty Fulham were clinging on at home to a relegation threatened team only to succumb to a last minute equaliser. Again it puts our result v QPR in perspective as there are no easy points in the championship and people would have been in meltdown had we succumbed to a last minute equaliser at home to a team in the bottom 3.

Great result last night for us. 5 point gap now which gives us some degree of comfort ahead of 2 crucial matches. Actually scrub that, every single game will be crucial now till May 6th.
