|We're still just six points out|
at 16:35 5 Mar 2020
Just wanted to add some perspective. In 30 years of professional baseball (announcer for minor league teams), I've seen stranger things happen than what we're facing. We have 9 games left, six at home against nominally weaker clubs, so, as Yogi Berra said, 'It ain't over 'til it's over."

The other side might as well pull their keeper for the first 60 minutes.
We then get 2 on target, but none for the rest of the match despite being one down.
Surely, we must have a strategy for what to do when down a goal that will produce chances.
In a must-win, we lost 0-1 at home to Fleetwood Town and only managed 5 shots.
|Path to the playoffs|

We'll need at least 25 points from here on out for a chance at the playoffs. Hard to imagine, but things will actually get worse before they get better. Hang on, though, because we are in for a wild ride to the finish. Here's how I see it:
We have 13 matches remaining, 9 at home and 4 away. We've been poor at home and we will continue that trend for our first four home matches, winning just one. If you think the cries for Lambo's scalp are loud now, wait for the deafening roars to come. However, things will right themselves dramatically as we face much softer sides towards the end of the home schedule (Southend, Bolton, Rochdale, Dons). In all, we'll win 5, draw 3 and lose 1 at home from here on out, earning 18 points.
Our away schedule features 4 clubs presently behind us, Doncaster's games in-hand notwithstanding. We'll win 2, draw one and lose one, producing 7 points.
In all, we'll get 25 points, finishing with 74. That might just get us into 6th.
Home (18 points)
Fleetwood Town 3
Coventry City 0
Southend H 3
Bolton H 3
Rochdale H 3
MK Dons H 3
Away points (7)
