Anyway, if we were to get promoted via the playoffs, weve done it before, what would be the best combination for us, ie play in the semi and then final? Although it would be hard work I think we could overcome Wycombe in a s-f but they look least likely at the moment. I think we could probably beat Pboro over two legs as well, although Id feel happier if our defence was a bit tighter than it has been recently, ie back to the clean sheets. Bolton and Derby would be the two Id be a bit more unsure we could overcome at the moment, although Derby seems to be a bit more up and down at the moment. It looks very unlikely we will face the Dingles in a s-f given there points tally and the gap to 5th. They could also overhaul us but I think thats fairly unlikely now. If we got a final with the Dingles it would seem like the most likely but could they falter against any of the other Playoff hopefuls. Bolton appear to have the best record against the Dingles (taking 4pts off them) and Derby were walloped by them recently in the league although Derby did knock them out of the cup 3-0 so could be a bit of harder one to call if Derby are on their game. In some respects Id like to avoid the Dingles in the final given they have beaten us twice and Id be a bit concerned about the psychology on our players. I could see Bolton beating them but clearly they would probably need to win at home to stand a chance at Oakwell. The concern about us playing Bolton in the final would be they have recently played and won at Wembley and a few clubs that have got promoted from L1 in recent years have had done same. Having said that our experienced squad will not be too fazed by it. I think the best scenario would be we play Pboro in the s-f and win and then beat Bolton in the final. Lets hope we get autos and dont face this shit again though! Edited April 22 by Tank_Owl2,0 typos Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
