Eek, what a bad weekend.

Fleetwood, Bradford and Scunthorpe all won and we've dropped a bollock at Oldham.

Need to beat Bury in a derby game on Tuesday. Bury are in a poor run but will be well up for that game - keep it tight early on and make us squirm. If Madine is still missing we don't seem to have the ability to open teams up.

On paper, we should be able to win at least 2 of the last 3 games, but we've all followed Bolton for long enough to know we don't work like that. Fleetwood also have 3 'easy' games, on paper.

C'mon Whites, don't cock this up.

Squeaky Bum Time.

I'm trying to stay positive about our last three games, but our current form is very worrying.

No doubt after tomorrow our lead will have been cut further.

If we don't beat Bury then I can see us ending up in the play-offs.

I'm a bit worried that Parky has tactically played two stinkers in a row and yes i mean team selection. Wilkinson up front and then Alf on his own. Pratley has played every game since injury, should have sat last game out, especially as its one of the places we have some cover for, he has also meant vela has been less effective. Finally henry has looked better than moxey when coming on so should have started on sat. Fingers crossed we get selection right.

I don't know why he thinks hoofing the ball to Alf will get results. I sure hope Madine is back tomorrow.

Bradford have lost, lets hope Fleetwood have a bad day too.

Come on Millwall!!!!!!!

Fleetwood sneaked a 1-0 home win over millwall. That was their only real banana skin - their other 2 games will bring them 6 points.

Have to beat Bury now or we'll blow this.

C'mon Whites!

I just hope Madine is fit (never envisaged saying that!). If not, just stick Wheater up there and aim it at his head instead...we don't have a Plan B so at least make sure we tick the boxes for Plan A.

Can see us choking and Bury know where the net is. Going for a late equaliser to earn us a 1-1.

Not been much to chose between us, scunthorpe, fleetwood or bradford. Rest of the division very average!

Parkinson's negatove tactics are going to throw promotion away. We only needed 2 wins some all out attacking performances would have done it!

Yes, it's all just slidding away from us now.

I hope Parky knows the Heimlich manoeuvre, as his squad are choking big time!

I think we're going to blow this. A defeat next time out at Port Vale followed by a nervy win last day v. Peterborough.
I think we're relying on Fleetwood dropping a bollock against Gillingham.

FFS.

I saw the article earlier on the BN, about Parky wanting Madine to play through the pain. I must admit, I was thinking last night, "how long can you be out with a sore shoulder?". Whether going public with it is going to do him any favours with Madine is anyone's guess, but the bottom line is we need the big man back playing.

But madine os just a quick fix papering over cracks. The cracks appear to be a manager unable to build flexibility into our play. Despite our position we don't seem to have made much progress on the field that the positive results suggest. Just makes me worried about the future. Mentality just seems wrong - playing to 'nick a win' rather than the swagger of a team with 80 points!

It makes you realise just how bad the teams are in this league when we have managed to accumulate 80 points and be in second place.

If we miss out on automatic promotion I can't see Parky and the team having the backbone for the fight for us to battle our way to promotion from the play-offs.

Blimey, Port Vale got a win at Walsall to give themselves a puncher's chance of staying up if they get a win at Fleetwood.

Well, we've made hard work of it, but it's as good as we could hope for going into the final game. We're all under pressure for a result (apart from Peterborough).

Still think we'll shank it though.

Which channel is showing the game? Shame it's a noon kickoff; that's 4 a.m. here. If I get the UK channel, I'll do my best to get up for the game. Otherwise, I'll find out if we were successful when I wake up.
