So, how did we manage that escape? Here’s the analysis of where we bucked historical trends to secure our first division future (above the scum).
So, in our last six games, our results were expected to be:
- Charlton: draw 1-1;
- Walsall: most likely lose 3-1;
- Oldham: also draw (0-0);
- Wigan: lose 1-0 – the standard home win given as we have not played there before;
- Doncaster: lose 1-0 (see above!);
- Bury: win 2-1.
The Charlton game turned into a win: a great start boosting us two points up.
Then, the key game that I think turned our potential into actual survival, the dramatic win at Walsall – 3-2 in stoppage time, in front of all those volunteers on their day out. Pure bliss (Alexa? – Ed).
