Onwards...and sideways and backwards probably.


"the standard of this dour league." Therein lies the possibility of Posh making the playoffs.

Well we're now 8th again.
Millwall are 7th having managed only a draw at Oldham.
Either Millwall or Posh could be in the top six after this game.
Here's hoping it's Posh.

Of course skybet are backing Millwall
Millwall 5/6
Draw 5/2
Posh 3/1
As Chompy pointed out the bookies aren't always right.

Skybet are not backing Millwall. That is their price. And it's about right.

Will GM now give the fking diamond a rest for the rest of the season?

Shouldn't your shape best suit your personnel? In which case we should be 4-2-3-1.

Back four picks itself.

Perm any two of Bozzy, Grant, Forrester and Ball for the two holding midfielders.

Three behind a solo striker means Taylor and MM can always play in the same team, plus either LDSL, Inman or Forrester. PT and MM are our two biggest threats, so why not?

Up front, either Nichols or CMS, depending on the oppo, with Junior used as an impact sub.

We're still not making the play-offs but makes sense to me.

Blimey, that's twice in one morning that I'm agreeing with Chompy.
Apart from the opening line where I have no idea and the last line where I will never concede our place in the PlayOffs until it's mathematically impossible

Well if we beat Millwall in the must win six pointer on Tuesday (Thanks Brian) it will be very mathematically possible.

If we are going to make the play off's I reckon that 70 points will do it given the up and down form of most of the contenders involved. So this means we need 20 points from our last 12 games (6 wins and 2 draws would do it). On paper our toughest games are our next three agains Millwall, Bradford and Oxford if we could take 4 (or more) points from these three games we will be well placed for a run in over the final 8 games.

they are a big strong physical well organised side...the sort of teams we struggle against...and one of the best in the division. it will be a tough evening for us.

We did yes....but that's irrelevant to this game.

We were 'on it' that night...They had a poor start to the season , it was the right time to play them.

Different situation and conditions now.

It will be tough.
But last time we had Alnwick in goal and Westley in the manager's chair. And we didn't have Anthony Grant. From what I've read, as long as he doesn't get sent off, he should keep the strong Millwall players at bay.

You're right but we need to make sure that it is in the back of their minds. As it happens though, they are the 0-0 kings at the moment and I will be more than happy with that on Tuesday.

...They are also the clean sheet kings.

Millwall have conceded one goal in league one since 2 January.

We have let in 20.

We also haven't had a 0-0 for 50 games.

Just saying like.

This game will not end 0-0.
Millwall will concede one or even two goals. As will Posh.

I had noticed that, but just wanted to focus on the positives. It would also be very rare for them to have three 0-0's on the spin, but then again we are sure to get one at some point. Whatever if we get a point tomorrow night, that will do nicely.
