    Not feeling as enthusiastic for this fixture as I should. Probably because I believe that we do not deserve to be in the playoffs and that we do not have the quality to compete against an on form Leeds. I guess that our progress to Wembley will rest on how motivated the NCFC squad are for this game. At home, against a Leeds side who have lost 4 of their last 6, with a chance of promotion and all the financial benefits that will bring, then the squad should really be up for this contest. However, turkeys don’t vote for Christmas; how many of this squad see themselves selected for a Premiership game and so how many will really be trying to get promoted knowing it will probably be the end of their career. Prime example is Duffy, at 32, who must realise that he is done here if we are promoted but who would probably still make a Championship side. How many of our squad will really be up for this game?

    The only league table across the season that doesn't lie is the final one, when everyone has played everyone home and away. 

    We were sixth in that table. Ergo, we deserve to be in the play offs.

    Dinamo Zagreb duly won so it's another really unlucky six with just the one drawn game.

    Still, we added to the pot thanks to @Hissing Sid's Norwich picks.
