The best result we could have hoped for!
Keep your fingers crossed for draws whenever the top half clubs play one another except for the Norwich games when, as we can't catch them, we might as well hope they keep on winning - except when they play us of course! ;D

Dave, you are of course technically correct. However, as I rate our chances of catching Norwich as being so small as to be negligible, I would much prefer for them to carry on winning against the top table sides (as they did against Ipswich the other day) to make our progress easier. Apart from when they play us obviously. To be honest I wouldn't worry if WBA went on a similar winning streak for the same reason.
Excellent results all round from the weekend and last night! Looking at the results I think almost every single one that effects us went in our favour ( bar west ham tue)! all teams above either losing or drawing!

I'm going with the 'Tony Pulis' method of thinking and I'm not even allowing myself to dream that we'll get in the play-offs yet. Don't get me wrong, I'll be the first one to go fucking mental if we do it, but for now I'm just enjoying this run while it lasts.
If we come out of March having showed good form, say 8 points out of 12, then I may dare to dream ;D ;D ;D ;D

RRP, there are 7 fixtures in March with the Crewe fixture having been rearranged for later this month - so 5 fixtures to go. With the majority (4) being away from home, 7 or 8 points would be a good return plus the 6 points we already have. That would make 13/14 points (out of a possible 21) for the month which would leave us "on course" considering it is the hardest 7 game run we would have had all season.
