So a long trip oop norf awaits our boys tomorrow (without Linvoy who needs to get match fit – and presumably Chantelle who looks pretty fit anyway – and probably isn’t a big Preston fan either – I’ll be in front of sky sports with a couple of tins if you’re at a loose end love). Anyway, after the good win against Reading last week it’s back to earth with a bump and a trip to the sort of place JFH, (Marcus) Bent and the like would have loathed – however in players like Luke Varney and our new ginga ninja hopefully we have some attitude, battle, resilliance or call it what you will. The team may be lacking the ‘big name stars’ (yuk) of a couple of years ago but maybe now we can start to become a team again (without too much tinkering). That’s why I’m plumming for a 2-1 win for the boys in red and white – goals courtesy of the two aforementioned players.

Elsewhere I’m going for home wins for Burnley, Reading, Southampton (who take on the tangerine seasiders in the televised early KO) and Wolves – aways for Birmingham (who continue marching on at the lead of div 2), Coventry, Derby (yes a Derby win which will leave Barnsley at the foot). To complete the round up I’ll go for draws between Bristol City and QPR as well as the late kick off between Watford and Ipswich.
