After 6 losses in a row, we started today in 21st place, one place above the bottom three. We entered the relegation zone "in running" for a few minutes until Huddersfield scored a very late equaliser against Blackburn. Then we went ahead and, against all odds and the run of play, beat Wolves away from home
We now find ourselves in 19th. Phew. Hopefully that will give the squad and supporters a much needed lift.

Harold Wilson once said that a week is a long time in politics. Ian Holloway will probably say something like 50 hours is a long time in the Championship. Over that period from 3pm on Saturday to 5pm on Monday, we have gone from flirting with the relegation zone to soaring to 17th place in the table following back to back wins. Well done to all. They may not have been the prettiest, but they're in the taxi!

Whisper it, but we are on a bit of a run. 3 wins in our last 4 league matches has pushed us into 14th place and within a point of a top half position. Momentum is everything in the Championship and we are very quickly heading in the right direction. We gained two points on nearly everyone around us in the table last night.

Our last six results are : WLWWDW. If Ollie doesn't get Manager of the Month for March with a WWDW record, then someone else has done a magnificent job. We have finally reached the all important 50 points target, normally sufficient to ensure survival. We are now in 15th, but only a point behind 11th and 3 points behind Derby in 10th, who we play next on Sky.

The remaining 8 fixtures look challenging, there are no easy games in the Championship, but the way we are playing at the moment I reckon they are more wary of us than we are of any of them.

Derby (A) currently 10th and can't get out of reverse gear (7 points in last 10 matches- that's relegation form!)
Villa (A) - 12th (in form- won 5 of of their last 6 matches). Should be a really good game to watch.
Brighton (H) - 2nd- 6 points ahead of Huddersfield in 3rd, who have a game in hand. We are a better organised side now than when they beat us over Christmas.
Bristol City (A) - 19th (one point above relegation zone and fighting- destroyed Huddersfield at weekend)
Sheff Wed (H) - 6th, 1 point ahead of Fulham who have closed a significant gap to the teams in the play off positions- 1 win and 1 draw in their last 6 matches- no pressure on them whatsoever!
Brentford (A) - 14th (their last 10 games have seen them score 23 and concede 22!)
Forest (H) - 20th, (one point above relegation zone and in freefall- with only 12 points in their last 16 games)
Norwich (A) - 8th, 5 points behind 6th - they might have nothing to play for by the time the fixture comes around.

I have a sneaky bet on us to finish the season in the top half at 9/1. :--

Since the last update we lost to Derby on the last day of March resulting in Paul Lambert winning Manager of the Month for Wolves (That result ensured Ollie didn't even make it among the 4 nominees). We compounded that by losing 6 in a row for the second time this season. In fact, we have been stuck on 50 points since March 18th. With 2 games to go, we have slid to 19th place, only 5 points ahead of Blackburn who are currently holding the last ticket to League 1 next season. Football- bloody 'ell.

A nervy 2-0 home win against Forest in the second last game of the season saw us go 5 points clear of the relegation zone, having secured 53 points with one game to go. As such, yesterday's 4-0 defeat away to Norwich was all too predictable. The team had switched off a long time ago. On reflection, if we had secured the draw that Ollie wanted against Forest, which by all accounts we were playing for in the first half, we would have been relegated - as Blackburn got relegated on 51 points with a better goal difference than ours.

It was way too close for comfort. If we were using the last 8 matches of the campaign to try things out for next season, then I'd ask what did we learn?
Were the team going through the motions, or applying themselves in a professional manner to experiment with different tactics with a view to creating a strategy for next season? If the team wasn't applying itself professionally, then why not? Has the coaching staff "lost" the changing room?
Was it the team, or coaching staff, or both, which failed to maintain the momentum while we were the form team in the Championship?
What can take from this campaign to create a blueprint for next season? Surely we can all identify with what works, who contributes, where people can and can't play, etc.
Will we hold onto the players who have genuinely shone since January?
Is Ollie prepared to identify his best starting 11, them play that team on a regular basis? If not why not
