Having played everyone bar Swindon, it is worthwhile considering the quality of our rivals for promotion.We've played everyone in the division now, so we know what the league has to offer.
dont forget palmer and especially gibbo look like staying on, so the defence wont be getting messed around either, as if gibbo didnt return, RM would be looking for another central defender as well....so we will only have to find a replacement for cass if he goes (Baxter anyone?)The Cassidy situation is tricky and who knows whether we'll be seeing him after Xmas, but I can't wait for JLAA to return. That will be a significant boost to our second half season push and with Palmer, Wallace and Bell-Baggie to return, I see no reason why we can't push on further.
it obviously mattersIt doesnt matter if we are top or 2nd at this time of the season.
Imo we will fall away and will end up outside of the play offs, our squad is not big or good enough to sustain a top 6 finish for the whole of the season
