    Mentally preparing for the playoffs

    Whilst promotion is still in our hands it has to be said that we are probably the unlikeliest of the top 3 to get promoted automatically given our remaining fixtures especially if Burnley win this evening.

    Making the play offs will be a fantastic achievement but i worry our fans will see this as a huge disappointed which will ultimately affect our chances of progressing to the final and winning them.

    Would people genuinely be disappointed to be competing in the playoffs?
    'The Amex Stadium is an excellent venue, very nicely set in the countryside. The concourse is extraordinarily wide and spacious for such a small stadium. Comfy cushioned seats, excellent view, plenty of leg room, great pitch and the best acoustics of any stadium I've been to. The home fans singing was deafening, all down to the acoustic effect of the stadium design.' Duncan Adams, Football Ground guide.

      I'd be VERY disappointed.

      That said, I wouldn't blame the team, and we'd still have a great chance of promotion.

      I would be disappointed to even think about the play-offs while we are still on for automatic.

      I get that but it feels great just to be in with a shout however unlikely.

      I also think we're in pretty good shape for a crack at the play offs this time

      However things pan out from here on in, it's been a tremendous season. The players have done us proud. And they seem WELL fired up, unlike Boro and Burnley with their nervy late goals. The team spirit is fierce and that will take us a very long way for the remainder of the season. Would be gutted if we didn't go up now, by one route or another, because we deserve it on merit.

      But the fans don't play.
      I'm pretty sure Chris Hughton has taken the possibility of the play-offs into account, and will not allow disappointment to mare our promotion push. Anyway, we are going up automatic, keep the faith
      You be glad you be Sussex born!

      STAYING ALERT!!

      I do think people are getting rather carried away. It will be play offs for us.

      The team spirit and mental strength we have should ensure that momentum is carried into the play offs. We should just edge Wednesday and then its Hull or Derby. Who knows on the day but Wembley will suit us.
