It's Still on for Rovers!
Did the outcome of the Charlton Athletic vs. Tottenham Hotspur match tonight make things any clearer as far as our UEFA Cup qualification chances go? Maybe, but I'm not so sure! I do know it's still on for Rovers though.
As the battle for UEFA Cup places reaches fever pitch, Tottenham's comfortable 2-0 victory over Charlton (a result that relegation the Addicks) saw them move up to sixth in the table on 56 points. Six points a head of Rovers, with the two meeting at White Hart Lane on Thursday.
If the table remains with Spurs in the top seven, I think (although I'm not certain?) we will make the Intertoto Cup at least, so although we would have to qualify from this UEFA Cup football is VERY possible, and looking more and more likely next season?!?!
Victory for Spurs (not that I want this of course!) over us at the Lane on Thursday would secure their automatic place thus meaning they couldn't pip us for that Intertoto place, and unless Bolton Wanderers are registered for the Intertoto Cup (which I don't think they are?) I think come what may we would make this as Reading, Portsmouth or Aston Villa (the only team below us that can finish higher than us as things stand) aren't registered.
Victory over Spurs would keep alive our automatic chances but could still see us miss out even via the Intertoto Cup! To secure even that we would have to finish above Spurs, and even victory over Reading (something I feel we will achieve anyway) might not be enough?!?!
I think I've basically confused myself a little here now, the picture might become clearer come 22:00 on Thursday night though, it will DEFINITELY become clearer to me for our chances of the Intertoto Cup at the VERY least if I knew if Bolton were registered for it or not…
