Terrific display by them tonight - only succumbing finally to an Ipswich winner in the 95th minute.
They may be adrift at the bottom but tonight showed they can't he taken lightly.

14 points adrift with 13 to play, so they have pretty much nothing to lose at this point. Teams often start to put in better performances once the pressure is effectively off.

It's got 0-1 (Hugill) written all over it. Especially as he hasn't scored for four and a half months.

Hopefully the Charity Park Rangers days are gone. Soton lost at home last night so surely won't slip up again against the Wall on Saturday. So finally a chance to escape the bottom three.
Don't let us down again Rs.

Well Uxbridge being as seasoned a supporter as myself has to consider the possibility of us tossing the game away Saturday.

Meanwhile stop press - Millwall are about to change their manager again before Saturday.

I was just about to post the same. They gave Ipswich a very good game till the end.
If, for the third time in a short period, we don't get out the relegation zone when we have the opportunity, it could become a insurmountable task in the minds of our players.

Finding their way downstairs in the morning is an insurmountable task for some of our lot.

I hate to say this, but IF we don't get 3 points Saturday, at Home, against the bottom of the league (however tricky any game in the Championship is) I really do think we may be cooked!

Psychologically it could really hit us as another lost chance to climb out the zone, saying that, I do think we will win 2-0.

They goals they scored against Ipswich were two mistakes and a penalty. They played very direct football, got everyone behind the ball when defending but were completely disorganised.

They've also got a very experienced team in Clucas, Blackett, Hugill, Ferguson, Hall, Sam Morrison.

Although it cannot be understated just how important a win is on Saturday, much like previous weeks, it will also depend on how the others just above us do.

We really haven't had the rub of any green this year. What with the run of games at home where blatant handballs in the box were waved away by refs, then all other teams above us winning every time we won too. Saturday just gone was the first time it all fell in to place regarding other results. Lets hope that continues for the remainder of the season.

The only game I can think of where Lady Luck showed any benevolence was home to Stoke.

Neil Harris has left Cambridge and has returned to Millwall. I expect them to get a point (1-1) at Southampton on Saturday.

It’s a shame about Millwall I was hoping they would stick with the manager and stay terrible.

I keep missing our wins so I’ll probably stay away on Saturday although it does not look straightforward.
