  • Now we just need one of those 'result predictors' for the remaining games and we can work out how many points clear in third we're going to be.

  • Accrington have hit our target. This time next week we may have hit it ourselves. Then it will be a gentle, anxiety-free cruise into the playoffs. Who needs predictors.

  • I've been looking at averages and we look good on points for the playoffs, it's our GD that I think may break us. Remember sitting in AP waiting for the results of the Bury match in 09 to see how many they would score before we could celebrate?

  • It's pretty unlikely to come down to goal difference. But not impossible of course.

  • With the last three matches being Pompey, Accrington and Oxford, I think we need to average 2 points a game over the next seven to be in with a chance of a play-off finish.

  • By then pressure might be on all of them as 'bigger clubs' (accies aside) to push for automatic, looking over their shoulders, while we will be safe and merely nervelessly happy to be in the running for a nice Wembley pay-day.

  • Predicted safety: 43 points. Wow

  • Reflecting the probability that York will not
    get 16 more points or Dagenham 18.

  • Any idea how much clubs make from the playoffs? I remember thinking it dreadfully unfair that tv money was so low last year and wonder how financially beneficial the playoffs really are. Great for us fans but how beneficial is it really for the club?

  • Think we got about £150,000 last season for reaching Wembley.

    I think the actual number of points required for safety is going to be lower than 43. It wouldn't surprise me if the Daggers and York only just managed to break 36.

  • Thanks @robin it would be well worth it then. Hope the boys can make a go of it tomorrow. COYB!!!!

    Where were they a couple of years ago when we needed them. (And I don't disagree with you)
