Sunday 29th April.
Good news from Ewood Park as promotion chasing Blackburn Rovers
came back from a goal behind to beat Portsmouth 3-1. This helps
Town in so far as it keeps Pompey a point behind from the same games
played, but more importantly it means that Portsmouth have to avoid
defeat at Crystal Palace to condemn the ‘Eagles’ to division 2 next
season and ensure their own survival as well as ours.
The hot news from Selhurst Park today is that they sacked manager
Alan Smith and his sidekick, and this looks like the move of a team
resigned to relegation. Whoever is in charge of team affairs knows
they must win both their remaining games to have a sniff of survival
and, let’s face it, this is fairly unlikely as managerial changes
can take time to have an effect.
