Playoff place at least for Forest guaranteed..

With both Walsall and Leeds losing tonight, that means that regardless of any reallocation of points to Leeds this week will not prevent Forest from finishing inside the top six of League One this season.  There is, of course, still the slimmest of slim chances of automatic promotion (read: not a chance in hell!).  So, the fear we have had recently of dropping out of the playoffs altogether is quelled, and no matter how our remaining league games go, we will have a shot at promotion until the very end.

So thank you Bristol Rovers, and Huddersfield, who inflicted 1-0 defeats on Walsall and Leeds respectively.  Of course, it could be a veiled thank you if our playoff track record is to be continued; but for the superstitious types amongst us, let’s hope it’s a case of third time lucky for the Reds in playoff related endeavours – because I dread to think what another term in League One will do to our season ticket sales this time around, and probably the long term fortunes of the football club.

So, whatever is to happen we will be around with an opportunity to the end of the season – or at least the game before the end of the season, depending on whether we do enough to reach the final this time.  Onwards and upwards, I’m going to try out a bit of positivity to see if it makes me happier than being a grumpy sod!
