That's Birmingham losing two games, leaves 3 to get what 5-6 point's?

I predict that Huddersfield will be relegated on 46 points based on my predictions.

Maybe, but they do seem to have the best quality out of all the bottom sides.

I know that doesn't mean anything if they are not performing, but I do think they have it in them to win a few and pull well clear.

Of the bottom 6 clubs, us, Rotherham, and Huddersfield are the only clubs that have safety in their own hands

And Derby
Derby are on 43 points with 5 games to go so could get 58 points
We are on 42 points with 6 games to go, so can get 60 points
Rotherham are on 36 points with 9 games left so can get 60 points if we beat them or 63 if they beat us
Huddersfield are on 44 points with 6 games to go so could get 62 points or 59 if we beat them
Under one of those scenarios Derby would go down whatever they do, if my maths is correct

You forgot about Birmingham. If we beat Rotherham so 60 is our max & 60 is their max, it means Rotherham would have to beat Birmingham in the process, which in that scenario would mean Birmingham could only get a max 57 points. Derby therefore also have it in their own hands mathematically.

If all we need is 6 points out of 6 games, I will crack open the champagne now. 🍾
Feel happier with 6 in the bag before the Millwall game, but there will be a forensic analysis after every game (including Tuesday!)

Huddersfield are fucked for. Hoping Rotherham are worse than them, it’s the only thing that’ll keep them up. If they need to pick more than 4 points up their in league one next season

I note some are citing that Rotherham have the worst home record, but we've got one of the worst away records! I would settle for a draw on Thursday and look to pick wins against Stoke, Huddersfield and Preston.

Clarification - we have the worst away record

Unfortunately we haven't had a 'home' record for nearly two years now. Another reason why Robins should be lauded for what he has achieved.
An argument that could have stood last season maybe (we'd have had more fans in our actual home ground I'm sure.) This season it's a nonsense thing to say, makes no difference whether we were playing Ricoh or St Andrews.

Most of our team has never played at the Ricoh, if anything it's going to be weird for them to go 'home'

The point was about last season. The fact that we still won the league playing no games at home is something else that those who think Robins is a poor manager choose to ignore.

At sixfields there was a 10 point deduction we ended up achieving 61 points and scored more goals at home than most that season.

Think Carl Baker commented in hindsight they got quite comfortable playing there in the end and the Ricoh was a tough adjustment. Don't think he'd dare have said so at the time mind

There is ofcourse a scenario where Rotherham Sheffield Wednesday and Wycombe can all be relegated in the next 14 days I believe

Achieve promotion?
The task at sixfields with a ten point reduction and a hostile atmosphere was far more challenging than a supportive crowd and a better playing surface at St Andrews - we wouldn’t have been promoted starting on minus 10

As you know, even if that 10 points were added back on we wouldn't have been promoted. And that was a team containing Murphy in goal, Christie, Fleck, Baker (who despite what you say, was a good third division player), Moussa, Wilson and Clarke. Some third division team that playing in front of very supportive crowds inside Sixfields.

The way we were playing last season we may well have been promoted, even with a ten point deduction. We were 7 points clear at the top with a game in hand, unbeaten in 14 and looking like we wouldn't lose again all season. And all of that playing in front of 5K crowds 20 miles from our own city.
I'm sure you will agree.Fantastic achievement by Robins and the team.
