If we do go down then we will have deserved it

If we do go down then we will have deserved it

Rovers are not exactly in a position in the league table where they can sit pretty and relax but one look at the relegation run in surely makes Rovers the favourites to survive in that dreaded mini-league of five down at the wrong end of the table.

With Rovers now sat in relative nosebleed territory in 16th place a look at the remaining fixtures shows that Rovers arguably have one of the easier run ins of the five threatened sides...

Sure Rovers have three or four very tricky ties left themselves but the run ins of the others (especially QPR) are as difficult if not worse than that of our boys.

It's in our hands and at this stage one thing seems clear, if we do get relegated then we've only ourselves to blame.

(Hopefully) A good run down of what's left, it's going to be a topsy turvy ride but we have to be confident we can do it...

Theres bound to be a few surprise results along the way. I think this season will be a step too far for Wigan, which is a shame as we've had some good games with them over the years. I've got a sneaky feeling QPR will beat Liverpool at the weekend and kickstart their survival bid, but I think we'll survive in 16th or 17th place come the end of the season.

QPR's and Wigan's schedule look abit daunting, Bolton seem to get off relatively lightly, and Us and Wolves have kind of get the same strength of schedule, though Wolves are on a poor run of form. Definitely going to be interesting, thats for sure
