Cannot see Hull or Brum winning any of those, bar Burton.

They've got Bolton which is very winnable, Boro which is a derby and could go either way, Millwall at home which is also winnable and then QPR further down the line who are simply dogshit.

If they can get themselves sorted they've got a great chance.

Forest are an interesting one as well.

They play 4 crap teams around them in the next 4 games, inc us, QPR and Burton.

If they lose to Burton in the next game, they are prob also looking over their shoulders. If we beat them, we'd go above them with an additional game.

Nope, they have Millwall away. They also have both Bolton and QPR away.

We will see, but it looks to me as though that is a pretty tough set of fixtures for them. And then in Apr/May they have: Wed, @Leeds, Norwich, @us, Burton, @Fulham, Wolves.

Right now, who are the 3 teams you have going down?

Yeah, that's a good shout. Can't believe Barnsley manager quit on them like that, one week after signing a contract extension. Bolton just hurt their chances by selling Madine to Cardiff (proven 6'3 striker, only 27, and Warnock knows Champ players, so I'm assuming we were in for him too:)).

I think I might be buying the beers after this, but I've just seen Sunderland's remaining fixtures, and I'm not too sure about Coleman in a crisis, so I'll go with:

Burton
Barnsley
Sunderland

Signs that maybe Derby will be beatable at home?

Bar Wolves everyone is pretty beatable

Our 2 best performances of the year have come against the teams 2nd and 3rd, and we were also good against Cardiff (1st half)

Just looked at Derby's form.

Quite surprised to see they've only won 2 games in 8 (after tonight). I thought they were on a winning run

Pretty much Burton’s B team just 4-1 to Hednesford. Think they’ll be beyond damned when Clough has to rotate his squad in April
