    Imagine how happy we would all be with this season if the away performances were at home!

    If we'd performed half as well at home as we have away this season we'd already be promoted!

    You're not wrong mate. Very fine margins in games, as well. I have faith in the players and Sturrock to get to Wembley and do the business.

    Depressing stat time, points we've thrown away from being in a winning or drawing position.

    Northampton - 2-2 draw after being 2-0 up. 2 points dropped.
    Dagenham - 1-1 draw after being 1-0 up. 2 points dropped.
    Shrewsbury - 2-1 loss after getting it back to 1-1. 1 point dropped.
    Plymouth - 2-2 draw after being 2-0 up. 2 points dropped.
    Accrington - 2-2 draw after being 2-1 up. 2 points dropped.

    Thats 9 points. Those 9 points would put us in 2nd place on 83 points.

    Thats not to mention home games against Burton, Swindon, Bradford, Rotherham and Aldershot. Away games against Crawley, Swindon, Cheltenham, Bradford, Morecambe, Aldershot and Bristol Rovers where we didn't even bother to turn up!!

    We have 38 points away and 36 at home. If we'd have performed half as well at home as we have away, we'd be midtable with 57 points and nothing to play for.

    Half our points total for our away games and add to our home games. That would give us another 19 points. Putting us on 93 points.

    From 60 odd games though.

    As for the dropped points, that happens. I'm sure there are points we've salvaged as well.

    It's the lack of clean sheets that scuppered us. Championships are built on a solid defence and our defence has been pretty poor in 2012, albeit it has picked up in recent weeks since ditching Morris and being without Kalala. Third clean sheet in last four.

    Our points total indicates that we have performed marginally better away from home as at home (results wise) which is unusual.

    If we were to have performed better at home than we have done away (which in all honesty is normally the way) then it is likely we would have got some more points. But to be honest that is stating the bleedin obvious.....

    Yes, one for the future I hope, he's still very young and looks to have bulked up a bit.

    Yep, I think Leonard provided superior defensive protection as well. I keep forgetting about him, but the team looks a lot less balanced in his absence.

    Talking about forgotten players, I'd completely forgotten Christian Dailly as well.
