    The final 11 games - predictions

    Post by KeoghKeogh on Sun 04 Mar 2018, 11:48 am

    Our last 11 games = maximum of 33 more points

    Away

    QPR
    FOREST
    PRESTON
    WOLVES
    BURTON
    VILLA

    Home

    CARDIFF
    SUNDERLAND
    BOLTON
    BORO
    BARNSLEY

    We should beat Sunderland, Bolton and Barnsley at home. (9 points)

    We are likely to struggle against Wolves and Villa. (0 points)

    The games away v QPR, Forest, Preston, Burton and the home games against Cardiff and Boro look to be the ones that will make the difference between playoffs or not. 18 points maximum on offer.

    So, we could get somewhere between 9 and 27 more points from the last 11 games.

    My guess is that we get 13 more points with 4 draws plus the 3 home wins.

    I reckon looking at that around 17 points which should get play offs, Wolves, Villa, Cardiff and boro are the only really tough ones imo

    Away

    QPR - draw
    FOREST - draw
    PRESTON - loss
    WOLVES - loss
    BURTON - win
    VILLA - loss

    Home

    CARDIFF - draw
    SUNDERLAND - win
    BOLTON - win
    BORO - draw
    BARNSLEY - win


    Predicting the championship is damn near impossible. I think a return of 16 points is not impossible. That should mean we reach our target of around the 8th place mark.

    Difficult. If we don't win soon, the players' morale will be rock bottom,
    whereas a good win could make a huge difference. Fingers crossed.

    5-4-2 = 19 points

    Away

    QPR - win
    FOREST - win
    PRESTON - draw
    WOLVES - lose
    BURTON - win
    VILLA - draw

    Home

    CARDIFF - draw
    SUNDERLAND - draw
    BOLTON - win
    BORO - lose
    BARNSLEY - win

    Away wins at qpr and burton and a draw at Forest and Preston. Home wins in all of them except for Cardiff where we lose so 20 more

    Unless we get back to winning ways pretty quickly I can only see us drifting leaderless towards mid-table obscurity. Again.

    On current form I can't see us getting more than 13 points from the remaining games.

    Know thyself! You've nailed that one Stockers. LOL roll

    What has given me the confidence to predict a 2 point a game average on this run in is the way we seem to have changed our game plan slightly over the past few games. Less on the counter and more on the front foot. Something a lot of fans have been crying out for. As results have shown we are almost getting it right. I am banking on this slightly more adventurous game clicking into place, starting at QPR tomorrow night, and carrying on to the end of the season with only the odd loss against the likes of Wolves and possibly Villa away. We should be able to win most of the rest and draw the others.

    Back to a 7-4 formation last night. Not what was required IMO.

    I'm sure we'll find a way to draw all nine.
