[quote user="Trent Canary"][quote user="Brendo "]So we can still go up at Charlton. [:D]IF, and a massive if, other teams lose on Tuesday. [/quote]No we cant be promoted at Charlton. Although as a previous poster discussed, a win for us plus a loss for Leeds and a loss or draw for Swindon is essentially good enough in all but the most freakish of scenarios. So id start partying in that case! But we cant officially be promoted as our goal difference is still reachable (Indeed if Millwall were to catch us up and draw level expect them to have a better GD)[/quote]
Actually we CAN be promoted at Charlton - although the ''repeat of 72'' and promotion at Orient cant
We are on 86 points, Millwall on 78, Leeds 77 and Swindon 76. If we win on Tuesday, we''ll be on 89 points - if the others lose, then we''ll be 11 points clear of 2nd and 12 clear of 3rd with 4 games left. Win v Charlton and we''re up as Champions - draw and we will be up, and thats assuming the others all win.
Do agree on the comment re: goal difference - Millwall are only 6 behind us GD wise and the rate theyre scoring goals - especially at home - they can easily catch us in that respect
[quote user="Trent Canary"]BH - Managed to get Charlton and Orient mixed up, thanks for the correction!BH''s figures are right, and mine would have been right if we had been talking about Orient! [:)][/quote]
No worries - did wonder if you''d got them mixed. Shame we cant go up at Orient tho hopefully wont be too long before we get across that line
Its been said quite alot that for the last few seasons 88 points has been enough for automatic promotion so its likely we won''t even need 7.
[quote user="Trent Canary"]For example if we lose our next three games 0-1, 0-1, and 0-2; and Leeds win their next three 3-0, 3-0 and 1-0; that would put us level on points and behind on GD. I seriously doubt it will ever come to it, but as it stands if we finish level with Millwall they are very likely to have a better Goal difference than us, if we finish level with Leeds it would be very tight, we would probably have a goal or two enough to stay above them. Either way, im sure it wont come to that [:)][/quote]
I guarantee that we won''t lose our next 3 games. Gillingham haven''t won away all season! Orient are ok at home but on poor form -
