Since our kamikaze run of three defeats against Millwall, Doncaster and Swindon we have now picked up three wins, and a draw giving us a return of ten points, eight goals for and only one conceded. We also sit in 7[SUP]th[/SUP] place in the FL1 table equal on points with Millwall and one behind Coventry and therefore one place off the play-offs,

All in all that looks pretty healthy to me and it says a lot for the manager and players that we have recovered so well from that mad spell. In fact it’s all starting to look just a bit real now to me that we have a chance in the play-offs. Now that I have had a bit of a better look at the January intake of players on loan the squad looks to me to be in good shape. We had some squeaky bum moments in the transfer window when I thought that Thompson and Worrall maybe Bentley may get sold, but it all came to nothing, so we now have depth of cover in just about every position and Wordsworth’s return is even more of a boost.

The new boys gave me a feeling yesterday that we have more craft and guile than we have had for some while and if it continues to come together I feel that we could be realistically in with a shout.

So what do you think, are we moving towards the Championship this season, or am I premature in my assessment?
