    Championship weekend fixtures


    0 Not allowed!
    Friday

    Leicester vs Birmingham

    Saturday

    Bristol City v Bolton
    Cardiff v Forest
    Boro v Brighton

    Palace not playing.

    How do you see it panning out? Will Leicester give us yet another chance to make some space between ourselves and 7th place? Also very possible that Forest will drop points.

      I'd go with;

      Leicester beat Brum
      Bolton beat Bristol
      Forest lose to Cardiff
      Albion draw with 'Boro

      Certainly not an ideal scenario if it comes to pass but it could be worse (just).

      In all seriousness, this weekend of Championship football looks fantastic. I love being in a competitive league.

      I fear Leicester and Bolton winning, us losing, and NSC going into meltdown.

      Brighton and Leicester will win and Forest will lose, which will put us in 5th and Leicester in 6th.

      1 Cardiff 41 24 80
      2 Hull 41 11 74
      3 Watford 41 25 71
      4 Crystal Palace 41 13 66
      5 Nottm Forest 41 8 63
      6 Brighton 41 16 62
      7 Leicester 41 22 60
      8 Bolton 41 7 60
      9 Middlesbrough 41 -5 55

      I think draws all round apart from Bolton who will win. Its going to be nip and tuck all the way...

      A draw is just about good enough for us providing Forest do not win at Cardiff ( please, Cardiff don't lose this one !! )

      Luckily Leicester play Bolton on Tuesday night.

      Leicester looked a good side to me. I suspect that performance last week will kick start them to a bit of form now.
      Bolton not great away and City in last chance saloon and some
      Forest finally having a wobble and wont score 90th minute goals every week and Cardiff are nearly there.

      Leicester win
      Bolton Draw
      Cardiff win
      Us - Cant call this one

      Even if we lose then not all bad. Bolton will then lose to resurgent Leicester the following week.

      3 pts next 2 be good for us

      If we manage to beat Middlesboro Sat & Peterboro Tues, Palace only have one game & Leicester play Bolton on Tues. We could potentially be in 4th by Tuesday night, I'm the eternal optimist so reckon that's where we'll be on Wed morning!!

      In theory it will be BHA 65 (5th) Leicester 63 (6th) Forest 63 (7th) Bolton 63 (8th). A draw will take us to 6th defeat to 8th.
      Wednesday morning will bring us either 8th four points adrift or 4th above Palace. Leicester v Bolton on Tuesday could see Leicester 6 points adrift with two defeats.
      Are you keeping up with this.
      Omitting the top three, that leaves three places and five teams all capable of both winning and throwing it all away.

      EDIT
      Cardiff drew Tuesday with Barnsley scoring in the 96th minute. We know what Forest have done in the final minutes of their last games!
