    Midweek Review....

    Well a good midweek had by all... Griff after the Lasher shambles of the weekend you lot go and beat Donny top of the league so are the Cumbrians back on course. Barnsley continue to defy the odds after selling half the team and have a belting away win at Villa. Leeds and PNE win by the same score 2-1 and the Dingles not in action. The next 4 games will start to tell us whether Barnsley and PNE can gain any ground on 5th / 6th spot Leeds and Sheff Wed respectively. Here are the next 4 games with some absolute corkers mixed in them

    PNE - Wigan (a) QPR (h) Fulham (a) Derby (a)
    Barnsley - Seagulls (h) Huddersfield (h) Derby (a) QPR (a)
    Leeds - Ipswich (a) Wendies (h) Brummies (a) Fulham (a)
    wendies - Florists (a) Bees (h) Leeds (a) Norwich (h)

    Take your pick from that lot - what a crackin 4 match spell. dont you just love the Championship.

    Too little too late Gards, you had two wins but didn't move up the table much if at all - there's the clue.

    April is the big month lots of games to test fitness and luck - particularly for the play off contenders, lose a couple of key players and it a visit to Deepdale in the 17/8 season :-)

    We made ground on Norwich and overtook the Rams. Small steps CB small steps

    14 games left so you better get striding, Derby have a game in hand on you and you have Wigan at the weekend who will be desperate to get another win, so don't expect an easy ride - I suspect you wil be back to drawing again

    Its typical that the Fowls scraped another underved win against the 'bastids' Blackburn (I love that nickname, its just sooo Lancashire ).
    On what was arguably our best night of the season so far away at Villingham, we failed to gain any ground on 6th place.

    14 games left for most teams, April is the month for the strong to shine and the weak to fall away - Week before the 8th April you will find me down at PNE's training ground coughing and sneezing from upwind to the players :-)

    I think the Wendies are scrapping games at the moment and they are not convincing in any shape or form. Have faith Acido they are about to play some serious teams and I think thats when they are going to come undone. We both made ground on the teams directly above us thats a start to build on my Yawkshire friend. Up the Tykes and nobbers

    Up the Tykes & Nobbers indeed kid, definitely
    We are the last 2 teams to win promotion to this league via the play offs and Wembley!
    I think we will be tested tomorrow against one of the 2 clear favourites Brighton (even though they are more than a little bit over rated!).

    That is a totally irrelevant argument tonight Professor Alfredo
    Brighton ARE going up to the Prem this season, whereas non league Lincoln twa*tted you at your place in a high profile Fa cup 5th round match. Come on kid, theres no comparison is there

    There is definitely no comparison comparing the Seagulls with the Imps or should I now call them the mighty IMPS This is a cup shock to end all cup shocks similar to Hereford back in the 70s doing the Geordies Maybe you should have brought Kightly back from the Brewers as he is almost single handidly transforming Burtons fortune with some class goals. The frightening thing is you didn't have a bad side out as well so even more of a shock me thinks.
