Which Top 6 position side at the moment could still let Derby in.

I think the next 4 games will see us either sink or swim. If we fare badly in terms of results then we could find ourselves a bit adrift. In addition teams such as Norwich et al could have overtaken us.

It really is the old cliche that should be used now and that is to take each game as it comes. It is so tight that we just need to focus on the next game and grinding out a result.

Sheffield Wednesday are a bit weird. They'll look awful one week then put a run together and look really efficient.

Hudds and Leeds IMO are nailed on. Let battle commence as the great Alan Partridge once said.

It's a free hit for us, the others have all the pressure and teams like Brighton are starting to show squad frailties as will reading and Leeds what happens if they lose the centre forward to injury, actually Norwich are the ones who could fly in there with us as they are on the fringe having done not much so far.

hudderfield are actually getting results when not great and taking good sides to the cleaners when good.

If Norwich beat Wigan tonight then Wendy's are out of the top 6.

The next 3 home games could define our season, win them and we are still in the mix, drop pts and it could be all over.

I cannot see us catching Reading, Leeds or Huddersfield, it is possibly between Norwich, Wendy's and us for 6th spot.

If buts and maybes

Top six seem to be doing better than expected in terms of points this season.

78 points has seen us miss out before. So 79 points has to be the target. 33 points from 17 games, or 10 wins, three draws and three defeats.

Fortunately we have 9 home games left with only Fulham and Huddersfield as direct rivals. That means the other 7 home games left are against against Barnsley, Preston, Wolves, Cardiff, Burton. Bristol City and QPR. Ideally we need to win all of them. Picking up at least 21 points from the rest of our home games is imperative.

Means we need another three of four victories on the road and we've still got a few toughies to come against Villa, Brighton, Sheff Wed, Brentford and of course the derby against Forest. Birmingham, Rotherham and Blackburn have to be the other three we claim all three points from.

It's do-able, but we need to go on a very good run of form to make the top six.
