Some reasons why we might do better to finish 6th

A - the atmosphere at packed Roots Hall is usually at its best on a Friday ( probable date ) night . This might be the most lucrative option too

B - We would get extra recovery time before the second leg . Our small squad has been performing flat out over the last few months.

C - this could produce an opportunity for Leeds and Carlisle ( who'd be favourites to finish 4th ) to kick lumps out of each other (with us facing Donny or Forest)

D - We'd probably take a bigger away following to Doncaster or Forest
and getting to either of those places ( or for that matter Carlisle ) should be less hassle on a Thursday

E - Gillingham would be relegated

Nah, let's get a morale-boosting victory, take 5th, and let Leeds battle with whoever finishes third.

Plus, if we finish 6th I can't make the home leg....

tbh I'm not fussed were we finish.
there are no easy away trip's there all a long way.
I'm not bothered who we play either
The other teams in the play offs should be fearing us

Not even Swansea went on a 13 game unbeaten run.

I'm all for ending up in 5th.

The away leg is a Friday and with me getting away at about 3pm i'm willing to get a flight and hire a car should we get Carlisle for instance.

A Thurs away leg and i'm pretty stuffed as i need to be in Hackney for work Friday at about 0545 so i'll be facing about 3hrs sleep if it's Forest .

'Tilly,don't mess around with Port Fail,i say smash 'em.

If we finish 5th, we play the home leg on the 12th, which gives the players a good 9 day break. Also, finishing 5th means that I can go to the second leg on the Friday 16th, but if we finished 6th I wouldn't be able to go to a second leg on Thursday 15th.

In a world of my own.
I personally dont want either of the clubs that reckon themselves too good for this level......Forest and Nil Points Leeds.... so anything that gives us Donny or Carlisle who will both be gutted to be in the play offs is enough for me....

Will definitely take whatever place gives us a game against Carlisle, they seem to be falling apart at the minute.

5th pls and Forest to finish 3rd.

I think having to play Leeds and Forest to win promotion is the hardest route to take.
