Apart from Stoke getting extra confidence from a win over Derby, with 10 men. But otherwise, yeah, good results

One day’s less rest for the Stoke players who will be knackered having played most of the game a player down. Might just work in our favour. #imclutchingatstraws

Fingers crossed. They've only lost 1 of the last 10 admittedly 5 have been draws and 1 defeat in 8 away games.

Having just watched the highlights I thought it was nice of both teams to let a fan play in goal last night

Bristol 1-1 Millwall today, keeps us out the bottom three by goal difference

Some fixtures to keep an eye on next week:

Millwall vs Hull (not sure about this one, obviously a draw would be ideal but I think Hull have too much in them to avoid the drop so maybe it would be better to drag Millwall in further trouble)
Brentford vs Swansea (Brentford only three points ahead assuming they lose at West Brom)
Norwich vs Bolton
Stoke vs Ipswich
Wednesday vs Rotherham

Argument that Preston can still be dragged into it, but I think they'll be OK, Wednesday have more chance of dropping I think even if they are a point ahead. Should be wins for Norwich and Stoke but you never know, especially with Lambert at his old club. Chances are we'll be in the drop zone before Sheffield game with it being a late kick off (depending on Millwall getting a result/Bolton winning at Norwich). Interesting to see if that has a positive or negative reaction amongst the players if we do find ourselves there

It's interesting to keep an eye on some of these teams that we might look to overtake, Brentford for example are on a mahoosive slide, as are Bolton then you look at teams like Sheff Wed who's only recent win was against a previously mentioned shit Bolton side.

Looking at the above form table our 6 game form has us up in 16th

Think Brizzle, Sheff Weds, Brentford will still be very concerned

Would say it’s the three plus us, Millwall, Bolton, Hull and Rovrum

Think Preston will get out easily enough

Sheff Weds are in trouble I think. Pretty sure they have zero funds to spend/are under some sort of embargo. They can't play their first choice keeper because he will automatically get a new deal if he plays one more game, thats how bad things are there.

Not suprised. They should be about 5-0 down. Defensively as bad as I’ve seen

No doubt they’ll go on and win 1-0 now :)

West Brom 1-1 Brentford via a 90th minute equaliser

Why you're blasting Robson Kanu I do not know, he missed a few sitters but the whole complexion of the game changed after half time when he was brought off, playing Gayle with Robson Kanu would have helped massively, didn't create much after he went off

So you’re saying we should stop criticising HRK because as soon as he went off West Brom improved?

Spectacular

I'm saying West Brom completely dominated Brentford in the first 45. Second half he took him off and the game became a lot more even with West Brom having no outlet up front to hold the ball up and as a result created one, maybe two, opportunities, compared to the 6 or 7 in the first half. Sky commentators even said that Kanu was having a good game. Shocking misses though, I'd be disappointed if a non-league player missed the chance he missed (and also the Rodriguez open goal)

Yet more nonsense. The reason they drew that game was because they didn't take their whole host of chances and nothing to do with Robson-Kanu. In any game if you don't put a team away, they will find a way to get back into it. Rodriguez would be my culprit for them not winning after missing two sitters.

Anyone who uses form to say we’re definitely going down must know that Brentford are in the midst of securing one of the relegation spots
