Everybody from Doncaster Rovers in 11th up have a chance to be promoted either automatically or through the playoffs

Exactly. Can't be doing with excitement at this time of the year. My heart won't take it.

Just hand me my comfy slippers, newspaper and pipe thanks.
Yep, no need for any stress at the end of this season :woo:

I started this thread because IMO there is more a chance Gillingham makes the playoffs than we do (Lambert is clueless), but their fans seem insistent on remaining in the mid-table thread.

Yes. This assumption is correct.

Best team we've played this season was Coventry and I reckon they will get automatics.

I want to join here but honestly think we have to much to do to make the play offs, we need to turn draws into wins then we can join in here

Playoffs is probably reasonable for us.

Autos is mathematically doable but we probably haven't got the quality to maintain the form to get there.

Basically we'll get done by any quality team, but have enough about us to consistently get results v bottom half teams.

It'll be disappointing not to get autos considering we were once something like 7 points clear in 1st, but let's face it we are already shithousing punching above our weight.

Good point tonight. We were disappointing in the first half but we're better in the second. Pitch at St Andrews starting to become poor.

Agree with that, a point was about right.
If you look at the BBC stats they also agree.
Losing Barlaser could be crucial for our Hope's of top two.

It's a lot of football for a pitch to cope with when 2 teams are sharing. Add in the weather and it must be a nightmare for the ground staff.

What's the position with the EFL regarding Coventry not playing in the city?
When we were forced out of Millmoor we were given 4 years grace to get back into Rotherham or face sanctions.
Does that apply to Coventry?

Probably not, the EFL are woefully inconsistent.

We aren’t good enough and when your manager states we are 2 to 3 seasons away from being the team he wants then you know to kiss your playoff hopes goodbye

We've got 3 years to be back.

I'd expect to be back at the Ricoh next year.

Coventry v Sunderland tomorrow.

Also known as the 'Coventry v 'The team who hate us because of something they think Jimmy Hill did in 1977 and now some Cov supporters don't like them back' rivalry.

Been looking in the window for a few weeks to check things out. But, no. Prefer the comfort of the mid-size shop next door. Will stay there for now.

Coventry top of League and looking good for promotion.
Two years ago one of their fans stopped play by haranguing their captain when they were losing at home to FGR in League 2.
I bet he is still distraught at his own stupidity and getting a ban.
Does anybody know how he is getting on and if he has 'done his time'?
He should now be a happy man.
