Well, what a bizzare game last night.

Norwich didn't have a single shot on target and yet won 2-0!

Without two slices of good fortune it probably would have been a draw..

when will you ever see two identical own goals in one half, by the same player again?

Bizarre to think that Stockdale was on hat trick before half time.

No real damage done to my pot yesterday, I will get it all back next week.

You have to say Norwich will be stronger next season though, Pritchard did look decent when he was on the ball. Got some well deserved stick from the Albion faithful tho.....haha

I know it's not the done thing to back against your own team but I wouldn't be surprised to see Fulham beat us today, they seem to make light work of anyone who tries to play their own game against them, bit like us really, it's against the stragglers that dig in and make it hard for them that they have trouble and at 9/5 think they are worth backing. We seem to have totally lost the plot of late, losing to Bristol City and Burton, scraping home against Preston and drawing down at Derby in one of the most boring games ever with the use of the most boring tactics. We seem to have given up on automatic promotion weeks ago, which has annoyed me as Newcastle are just stumbling over the line with no pressure from anyone. Fulham 9/5

Scunthopre 6/4 travel to seemingly doomed Swindon who need to win today but Scunthopre have a slim chance of automatic promotion and have won 3 on the bounce and maybe can be backed again with a bit of confidence.

Lastly into League Two with Accrington who are in top form but it's too late for the play offs but will be looking to finish the season on a high in preparation for next season. They take on Newport County who took a right caning at Plymouth on Monday.

Fulham 9/5, Scunthorpe 6/4 and Accrington 5/4 pays 14's.

Quick post today. On way to Hampden.

Hibs win at 4.00. Yes please, VALUE.

Hibs +1 at 1.75. Big stakes, can't see us losing today.

Over 2.5 goals at 2.10. Goalfest on the cards, Aberdeens defence is their weekness.

Jason Cummings anytime scorer at 3.00. Great price, loves scoring in the big games.

C'mon the Cabbage :ok

If that was on a game of Football Manager we'd all be saying it was scripted! Pritchard is a quality player. Norwich's squad overall should be challenging for automatic promotion. I had them tipped as a top 6 finisher before the season started. In fact, I think I had them and Newcastle as top two. Anyway, it'll be interesting to see how that result affects Newcastle's mentality. Easy to forget they still haven't sealed promotion yet.

@Kenton Schweppes, what's the mood amongst Huddersfield fans like at the moment? I should point out, Kenton was adamant before the season started that the Terriers would be in the mix. I tipped them to struggle and I am happy to admit I have been proven wrong. I've got a soft spot for Huddersfield after they, along with Alloa, were one of the first clubs I managed on the old Championship Manager games. In the days of Andy Booth, Iffy Onuora, and Jon Dyson!

Sheff Wed 2 Derby 1

It wasn't easy match, but Wednesday had a classy finish. 5W run - first since 2007. Impressive!

After today....we're all a bit concerned. Think whatever happens it's been a decent season but it will be cold comfort if we fail to even qualify for the play offs after being there practically from day one. I'm hoping we'll qualify and we'll take it from there. Aside from the 98/99 season this is the closest we've ever come to regaining our top flight place since we left in 1972. I'm hoping we don't go into the final fixture against your lot needing a win to secure our place in the end of season shake up.

Them 3 Town players you mention are all club legends.

@Kenton SchweppesImpossible for you to not be in the playoffs surely? Need to lose all 3 and Leeds win both. I'm Leeds born and bred (bar 18 years in London ;) ) but I'm glad they're not potentially going up this season as they just wouldn't be ready. Depending on the transfer market in the summer, I think they're a good bet for promotion next season though. :ok

When we got promoted from the third tier back in 2003 (the old Division Two!), we were in the promotion places on and off all season but suffered a collapse in the second half of the season. Wigan and Crewe sealed the automatic promotion spots and we just qualified for the play-offs by 1 point. However, we then went on to win the play-offs without even conceding a goal. Just get in there and take things from there. Everything that has gone is forgotten when the play-offs start. My only concern for you is that it appears teams know that you're focused on passing out from the back and teams are pressing high against you. It will certainly be an intriguing play-offs this season.

I only need to remind you, as a Cardiff fan, that one time when Preston won their remaining four games, we lost our remaining four games, and they overturned a massive goal difference to stop us from making the play-offs. I'm sure they'll be fine though! :loon
