I have gut feeling we will be back in business....Come on lads prove me right hey.

Time for us to get the winning run started. Home form needs to improve !!!

11 points behind if we lose.... not worth thinking about. 5 points behind is more than do-able. All depends on being strong at the back again. I'd honestly prefer a 1-0 than a 4-3 shoot-out! Stuck in Amsterdam, so Yorkshire Radio via the web for me this week....

What you need now i a good dose of confidence,dennis pennis's honeymoon period is comming to an end and its debatable whether he's managed to lift the squad through ability or just the fact that he's a new face..Its now or never if your going to get into the play offs..Big big game against perterborough,much more than any 6 pointer...
80s terrier
Will look out for the result tomorrow when I get back from leicester to see how youve done...
80s terrier
We will be showing an interest in your result too, don't think anyone will catch Leicester so three points to the foxes please.
