    Here we go! Let’s do the double over Rotherham for starters.

  • We could equal Ipswich on 31.

  • Gut feeling: we manage a win plus one or two draws in the last eight games. 31 or 32 points.

  • Two wins, two draws is definitely doable from here.

  • Just beat Peterborough, then we flood Alan Swann's twitter account to let him know

  • Do you easy access to goal difference stats @shev as it may come to that?

  • This is the real quiz.

  • The double over Peterborough has to be the priority. Worry about goal difference when (not if, note) we get to 37. Three wins and a draw.

    Yes, I can gather any of that information easily. You just know there is going to be some last day excitement!

  • You're missing at least two points totals from that list who achieved 39 points or less

  • Thanks @wwfcblue - who do you have?

  • Bolton - 30
    Franchise - 39

  • Do you know which years?

  • Both 15-16

  • I must have skipped that season by accident, sorry!

  • Level with Bolton. Four points to reel in Swann’s boys.

  • "They'll be the worst Championship team ever," they said. "They won't win a game," they said.

    I remember Oxford fans reckoned we'd only win 5 games and set a record low points.
    Didn't look too far off for a while, but glad we've come through better than that!

  • Only 5 points to overtake the Peterborough Galacticos!

  • And 7 or 8 to do the double. Come ON you blues.

  • Would be brilliant to get 39 points and equal or better all the lowest points totals since 2013/14.
    Bristol City got 41 in 2012/13.
    Three teams got 42 in 2010/11.
    If we managed to get 42, that would be amazing to equal or better every lowest points total this century!

  • People are getting slightly giddy.
    However, if we won the next two i'd certainly join in!

  • Today was so good, I've actually just checked the table to see if we could beat relegation!

  • With our goal difference, we might still need to win 6 out of 7 to have a shot, so it is still highly unlikely without someone falling into administration. That being said, Coventry are sinking like a stone and there are three other teams on 1 PPG or less.

    If we could even pass Sheffield Wednesday (points deduction notwithstanding) it would be pretty incredible. It would be a little heartbreaking to get past 40 and realize we would have stayed up if even a handful of the most egregious decisions had not gone against us.

  • If only we could beat Luton at home. We deserved to the last time we played them at AP but JJ failed to convert a penalty in the second half after scoring from the spot in the first half.>

    Back to front! I started tapping out my post a couple of hours ago and got interrupted so thought I’d better copy down the post that sparked the comment.

    If we do win the next two I’ll be getting more than slightly giddy!

  • We’ve never beaten Luton at home.

  • We'd never beaten Blackburn at home before today!

  • Birmingham scoring a very late penalty to beat Swansea has dampened my mood a bit tonight.

    Disappointing about Birmingham indeed.

    I can't remember if I mentioned this, but if Coventry get relegated with us, we will have been in the same division for five consecutive seasons by the end of next season, getting promoted twice and relegated once together. I can't imagine that has happened often, especially as they needed to win the L2 playoffs and we needed to win the L1 playoffs in order to continue to be in the same division.
