Bring On The U's

I haven't generally been to mid-week matches this season because it means a 1 a.m. return to Warwickshire, but I am coming tonight. This is clearly a vital match. I do not think we have a realistic chance of getting an automatic promotion place, but we need to secure our play-off place and try and get 3rd or 4th which would put us in a much better position for the semi-finals than 5th or 6th.

Swindon have been touted as the new invincibles, but they didn't look like that when we played them and having been defeated 3-0 by Colchester on Saturday, a last minute own goal with lowly Exeter scraped a draw at home last night.

A win tonight would put us on the same number of points as Swindon but ahead of them on goal difference. Leeds travel to Carlisle which is not an easy fixture for them. A win would also put paid to any chances of Colchester overtaking us.

My fear is a draw which would simply not be good enough.
