40 POINTS AND THREE GAMES TO GO
We have improved everywhere on the pitch but still haven't got that clinical finisher. I know that we have been scoring recently with two against Charlton, Brentford and Wigan but the pressure was really on for this game but although we had good chances, we did not deliver. Gary Fletcher-Taylor promised us a while ago that he will score goals, once he un-tangles his feet he may well do but on the showing so far I don't see it myself. Lee Gregory has not picked up with his goal scoring which must disappoint him and he is still stuck on six for the season. As I said we should have had this one and the chance by Mark Beevers that smacked the underneath of the bar and ended up not crossing line was a major blow and it just proves that margins are tight in this division.
JUST ONE LUCKY BREAK IS ALL IT TAKES.
Can we do it stay in the Championship ? We are still in with a shout and the team has not gave up so nor shall I. Rotherham still have the risk of being docked at least three points which adds a extra dimension to the this end of season battle royal. There is only one more game to go at the Den and I wish it was all three.
