UPDATE: I've edited the table and it now has all fixtures for teams down the bottom bar Wycombe. I've changed colours according to results teams have got: losses in red, draws in orange and wins in green. Derby are still well in it.

Original: Had a look around after today's game to see if I could find the relegation contenders' fixtures in one place but couldn't so I've just knocked this together. I've disregarded Wycombe and was tempted to do the same with Wednesday but left them in. Blues have got a tough run coming up playing the teams currently second to fifth while Huddersfield have Brentford, Norwich and Bournemouth in the space of four games with a big one v Rotherham thrown in. Hopefully adds to the optimism after today.

Sheff Wed and Blues to go down for me.

Huddersfield, Wednesday and brum have a grim looking run in

Even Derby have it tough

I'm actually backing Rotherham to stay up here and blues to go down with Wednesday

Sticking my neck out we will finish 18th

Honestly there's just no way we are going down this season not concerned after today in the slightest. I think we we should and will pull clear of the relegation dogfight. That is partly looking at the fixtures we have left compared to our rivals.

To not pick up another 13 points from those games we would have to have some absolute stinkers!

I think I agree. Rotherham seem a far superior team to Derby and Birmingham.

I think our landlords are in real trouble. Would not like to see that happen to them. Wednesday and Wycombe gone for me. Huddersfield just about survive I reckon over Rotherham, but will be close. Think we should be OK so long as we keep up the fight, and of course we have Godden back.

Like above, I think Rotheram have a very decent run in, so I’m predicting they will stay up.
Sheff Weds and Wycombe are definates, also Brum have a very awkward run in, so they are my three.
I think we are playing mostly teams with nothing to play for, so I think we will be ok, but being a Cov fan I’m not taking anything for granted until the very last game of the season

Big problem for Rotherham though, is that they are playing 2 games a week (pretty much) until the end of the season...injuries could still wreck them.
That being said, i do think they have been, and are a better team than Brum, who are my favourites for the 3rd relegation spot.

Are we thinking another 13 points does it

I think if we manage to get a win against Rotherham.. That's 9 points clear from them and still at worst 10 points clear of Wednesday... If blues lose its 6 points on them and they are coming into a horrible run of fixtures after that

Win Saturday, and relegation is extremely unlikely

I remember the last Birmingham game we played. They brought on a winger as a sub (at least a winger in my eyes). He changed the game and we scraped a draw. Rotherham, like almost every team in the division are capable of beating anyone on their day. No way the league will be extended for them though. Think they may struggle with fixture congestion and the issues that come with it.
It’s close between a lot of clubs. We’re not out of it yet. We’ve definitely got enough going for us, but just need to make that count.
To be at the Ricoh without Championship football next year would be financially and emotionally heartbreaking.

Ouch for Blues, they look fekked based on that. The horrible run of fixtures we've just gone through but with less time to get clear after. Hopefully they don't sack their manager and get a bounce.

We win on Saturday and Wednesday and Birmingham both lose, I think we are safe. Obviously need a fair few points after that, but I think the gap will be too wide to make up.

I still don't get this love-in for Rotherham either. Before they beat Sheff Wednesday, they had lost 5 in a row and they have a backlog of fixtures to fit in too. Two games a week, no respite.

I am not at all convinced they will pull clear.

Their final four fixtures there are Barnsley, Brentford, Blackburn, Cardiff, with Luton to still fit in.

Rotherham also have Luton to play, I can’t see where they are going to squeeze that one in?

I'm suprised the bookies are making Forest so safe, we could be above them next weekend.

I'm sure we will be fine, the Ricoh news will give the whole club a lift, and having Godden back from injury should make a huge difference.

Oddly enough Wednesday's doen't look too bad, but Birmingham and Huddersfield have absolute stinkers. Nick 3 points next saturday and it would help. I see us getting 48 points so it will be tight. A couple of games that looked good bets earlier in the season look at lot tougher on the basis of current form - Barnsley, Luton and even Millwall (whom incidentally we defeated on the last day of the season 3-1 to become champions of Division 2 in 1967)

Looking at that you’d have to consider we are in good stead. I struggle to see many of those other teams picking up more than 12 points before the end of the year.

I’m confident we’ll be okay can’t see Sheffield pulling seven points back they are in very poor form at the moment, for me third spot is between Brum & Rotherham who might have games in hand but winning them is a different matter draws aren’t a lot of good when you are running out of games. Crucially Birmingham & Rotherham play each other mid April and both play Cardiff last couple of weeks of the season Blues first and Rotherham the last weekend can’t get much worse than that.
Twitchy bum time then.

Wednesday's game in hand is Swansea (not on the list). Don't see them winning that and don't see them making up 10 points on us in other games.

Apart from Rotherham everyones last 4/5 games are pretty middling with us all going against teams with little to play for. Ideally we get the job done over the next few weeks and are reasonably comfortable going into those last games.

if we can get 2 wins in our next 4, i'll feel a hell of a lot more comfortable.

We still havent spent a single day in the relegation zone yet!

I think we could probably do with Huddersfield being well clear of it all by the time they play us .

They have Rotherham before we face them and them beating Rotherham would be a big boost for our chances.
