Silver Fox Is the Maidenhead dream coming to an end? Noticed they were just above the drop after losing to Aldershit at the weekend


Falling into the relegation battle right at the wrong time...

Terrible result for them last night, losing at home to third bottom Ebbsfleet.



Maidenhead’s home form this season has been dreadful and is the main reason for their awful position. Hope they can do enough to stay up but if not these last few seasons will have still been a real success for about the only semi professional club in the National League.

Pompey and Fleetwood draw with each other meaning they go up to 4th and 5th place respectively, but Sunderland lose and where they did have games in hand recently they have now played 1 more than anyone else up there.

3rd win in a row for Tranny meaning the outside chance Southend had of catching them is gone. Nervy times for those sitting just above Tranmere

My best mate in a Wimbledon fan, feeling content with seeing out the season. Now they are panicking with Tranmere just 3 pts off and a game in hand on a winning streak...

Watford at home to Norwich on Tuesday. A win for Watford and Bournemouth are almost certain to go down as they also have a tough run in.

Was going to say Villa would also have a very outside chance of staying up as they play West Ham on the last day, but realistically they would need West Ham and Watford to not pick up any points for the rest of the season to have that chance, but they play each other still, and have other winnable games. So a win for Watford on Tuesday will almost certainly send Villa down too

If Watford fail to beat Norwich though then there are quite a few big games to come

Current bottom 3 drop for my money. West Ham have got one more win in them, which will be too big of a gap and Watford should beat Norwich and either Newcastle or West Ham.

In the last 9 games Wigan have won 7 and drawn 1. They have only conceded goals in 1 of those games and that was against Brentford.

In their last remaining 4 games they play 3 of the bottom 5 and on the last day they play Fulham, 1 week before Fulham have their 1st leg play off match.

In the last 10 game form table they are in 2nd place.

Even if they are docked 12 points I reckon winning 2 of those last 4 games could be enough.

If Stoke lose to Birmingham at the weekend then I reckon they will be the ones to go down

Looking forward to Villa going down, I think some idiot team will take a punt on Mings though so we won't get a chance to boo the oxf*rd.

Luton 2 up and look set to go above Barnsley. Relegation fight is amazing this season. I cant remember a season where all the bottom 3 could still quite easily get out of it this near the end of the season.

With 4 games left for most, 3 for some, you still have 8 teams fighting to keep out the bottom 3

It was a few years ago when Brum played botllton on the last day and didn't go down in the 95th minute.

Reckon there are still fans of 9 clubs who are worried about going down. Barnsley up to Birmingham in 17th, plus Wigan.

Norwich relegated following their thrashing by West Ham coupled with Watford's win. Those results pretty much confirming Bournemouth and Villa for the drop too barring a miracle escape.

Really don’t know why, but currently whenever I think of Villa I see Petey Brooks from “The First Team”

Yeah it will be their saving grace. He hasn't had a good second half of the season though so value may have decreased slightly.

Winner for Leeds in the 89th minute. 6 points clear of 3rd with 3 to go. They are Prem bound.

West Brom Vs Fulham on tuesday. A win for Fulham and Brentford can take 2nd place.
