Headline in the Mirror says we're the best team in League 1. Have I missed the promotion party?

Reading forums of the other contenders it's clear they see Bolton as already promoted, and them fighting for the other two spots. Even Tranmere fans.

Only Bolton fans expect us to fuck this up now. With good reason.

Win against Colchester on Saturday and we’re in the top 3.
After that it’ll be a matter of hanging on.

Colchester is on Friday.
That’s a day less stressing about it.

Plus if we win we’ll be second for at least a couple of hours cheers

Doesn’t bear thinking about. It’s my biggest fear but I think at least one of us will go up automatically.

Automatic looks like 80 points maybe less, so 2 points a game would get us over the line . Current form shows 2.69 points a game that will be hard to maintain. so a drop to 2 points a game on average would cover a slight dip in form.
 
If other teams continue to drop points then the total will keep reducing, the longer we keep winning the easier it gets IF we could beat Colchester and Newport then 11 points from 21 would be enough just 1.6 points a game. So this weekend should clear a few things up.

So 6 wins 3 losses 
Or 5 wins  2 draws 2 losses
or 4 wins 5 draws 

Any of the above gets you 80 points i can't see three other teams getting more than 80 points.

A point instead of the expected win but still enough to put us in an automatic promotion spot. Awesome stuff.

Were clinging on to the 3rd spot by the skin of our teeth, lots of luck. Who would have thought all 5 teams around you would have lost on the day you decide not to turn up. If we carry on playing like we did yesterday, we'll slip into the playoffs. If we do that, we may well react badly. We all know that at least one team messes everything up in the run in, lets hope its not us.

How can you be clinging on to third ? when you have moved into third place for the first time proper this season. We arn't clinging on to anything 36 points from 42 is not clinging. We may not have performed as well but our form is rock solid. clinging starts tomorrow at Newport but only if we don't win.

Sorry Wessy, but I think you have slightly misunderstood what I mean. We are clinging on to third because we wouldn't have got to it if the rest had done better yesterday, and when you look at the 1 point difference now and low goals for, we aren't in a strong position for automatic promotion. I agree we've done brilliantly to get where we are, but in my mind we could be in danger of taking our eye off the ball if we don't focus more than we did yesterday.

Fair enough but they didn't they all lost  (that's not our fault lol), the other side of the coin is if we had done better we would have extended our lead in the automatics.  The league table says we are third on merit, no games in hand now actually third. 

GD that also has improved other than the top two the rest in the play offs are very similar. So third place and automatic promotion going into tomorrows game is currently in our hands. Who thought that in January.  So still can't see it has hanging on, but we all have our opinions. One things for sure Glos is we all want the same outcome however we get there. Agree we have to up our form on the Colchester game for sure.

Its a mixed bag of fixtures for us today, so as long as we take our chances, we should be OK, although we've got a hard run-in with 5 away and 3 home games left, and none of them easy. You're right though, whatever it takes, I think were up to it.
