Must win. They all are now.
I think it will be close though.
Probably a draw.

Really do have to win this one...not sure with Toney being out but going for a 2-1 win Dembele and Szmodics to score

I will be at the Portsmouth game over from the States...so need this win on Saturday to really make things interesting :-)

Really not liking the look of all this rain.

Does The Pirelli Stadium have good drainage?

Yes.

PIRELLI STADIUM PITCH RENOVATIONS AHEAD OF 2019/20
“Last year [2018], primary drainage was put in and that is about three quarters of a metre deep. It made for a big improvement, but for the water to get down to that, you need to put in the secondary drainage. It was always the plan to do the secondary drainage this year [2019]. We have done everything we can to improve the pitch without a full reconstruction.”

Funny message board this.
More people commenting on what they are listening to etc than this important game.
If anyone is interested we should have won, we could have won but we only drew (1-1).
We're going for the playoffs now.

I couldn't even be bothered to iFollow - over on cliquecentral.net they're trying to pretend that this result doesnt matter - it does and they know it...it just isnt good enough....when I see our chairman retweeting Ted Cruz, Piers Morgan and Donald Trump, I despair...explains why he likes yes men though

Ivan Toney was a good signing though

It took me a while to figure out what a bunch of their fans were singing to our right in 2nd half, then I got it. "We're not going up, we're not going up and you're not, you're not".
We were definitely not able to finish in the first half. So many chances. We need Ivan back for this critical run-in.
I'm open to constructive criticism however if someone offered me 6th place now, I'd take it

Today Posh missed not only his goal scoring ability but also his headed clearances.

Beevers was certainly not to his standard, a poor game throughout which in the end lost it. Cannot think of a Man of the Match.

Eisa scored a goal. That must give him some brownie points?
Pym only conceded one. Maybe he should get the award.

Thompson was my MOTM by a long way. Brown does keep the ball on the ground and passes to the correct coloured shirt. Jack Taylor put in a shift too. Szmodics and Ward awful!
