    We still have the same bunch of under-performers as we did last time round, so it's hard to see why we should start the season on a hot winning streak. I hope we do, but I think it's unlikely.

    The only real difference to last season is Pearson, and it will take him several games to find his best formation and tactics.

    I think we'll make a slow, cautious start, picking up six points from the first five games.

    2 x home draws
    3 x away wins

    = 11 points


    ..... then we'll go on a decent run!

    Barnsley, Burton and Preston are three of the weakest teams in the division,
    so we ought to get 3 wins but, knowing us, we'll find a way to drop points.
    We need to get 9-10 points from 5 games like these for promotion but . . .

    8 points is my guess

    Loughborough Ram came the closest to our modest total of 5 points.

    RRC, I also predicted six points from first five games...

    "We still have the same bunch of under-performers as we did last time round, so it's hard to see why we should start the season on a hot winning streak. I hope we do, but I think it's unlikely.
