The Great Depression

The Great Depression

I used to be so thankful we were never that team stuck rock bottom without a prayer of staying up.

I don't know if we had a right to expect anything from a trip to Peterborough but for some reason I always felt we were in with a chance pre-match.

A first minute goal from Tom Pope set us on our way, and for brief moments tonight we were not on the bottom of the table, but things are never as simple as 'seeing the game out' at Crewe (ok, so we had an entire 90 minutes to see out but still...). So the quality ended up shining through in the end - two quick goals after half time for the Posh got them going and despite a Pope equaliser it was a resounding victory in the end. Four goals to two.

Back in statto mode; we're now seven points off safety. Hereford and Cheltenham lost above us but for now their results are pretty meaningless to us. It's whoever is sitting 21st we take note of and unfortunately Yeovil won, Brighton drew, Swindon won and Leyton Orient won - stretching the gap.

Our next few games will probably decide our fate (unofficially) and they come pretty thick and fast. Tranmere at home on Saturday followed by Yeovil in a week then a trip to MK Dons on the Saturday then home to Bristol Rovers on the Tuesday and finally away to Orient on the Saturday.

If we're to survive then we're needing at least nine points from them games but it's hard to see those wins coming in quick succession at the moment.

I think this season will be won or lost in the transfer market. Gudjon's not done much and only has five days left. Huge disappointment if there isn't a host of new names in for the Yeoil game.
