Friday 6th April.

Macari has today set a 48-point safety target for Town, and he believes that this figure should be enough to see us out of the bottom three when the season draws to a close. Iím not sure I agree as 50 points is a more realistic target although I do remember one season when the highest relegated team (I think it was Hull) had 52 points, but then again there was a season when Notts County survived on something like 43 points. It sounds so simple when you think in terms of 3 wins from 8 games, but when you consider that we have to play Fulham, Blackburn, Birmingham, West Brom and Preston who are all in the top six it will not be easy. A win at Wolves would be an excellent way to get the ball rolling and our recent record at Molineux is pretty good, so why not?

Mixed news regarding the availability of players for the game tomorrow, as Lee Morris seems to have overcome his back injury and Chris Holland has recovered from his broken toe. However, Martin Smith would seem unlikely to feature for at least 2 weeks (probably more with his fitness record) and Jim Brennan has today received a three-match ban starting with the home game against QPR.
