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.
