“Optimism is a disease”, but…
…has anyone looked at our run-in and thought that it has to be one of the gentlest yet seen?
As GA regularly reminds us, “there are no easy games in this division”, but the final 6 are all against teams either likely to be in the relegation dogfight (FGR, Cambridge, Morecambe), or challenging hard for pure mid-table mediocrity (Lincoln, Chelts, Pompey - ok there’s an outside chance the latter pull round and challenge for the playoffs too, but I can’t see it).
It can also be argued that games against relegation strugglers should be amongst the hardest, if those teams are going to be fighting to stay up - but we have an additional level of quality that those teams don’t have.
So there’s obviously a long way to go before April, but if we manage to keep up with the play-off chasing pack until then, I think we’ve got a decent chance.
(cue horrendous slump in form, etc)
