Just one play-off ticket left as Wigan book their place

The Argus: Callum McManaman Callum McManaman

Albion, Reading and outsiders Blackburn will battle it out for one remaining play-off spot on the final day of the Championship season.

Wigan booked their place in the semi-finals with a 1-0 win at Birmingham City last night.

Callum McManaman scored early to heap more home misery on Birmingham, who remain in the bottom three.

Albion will reach the play-offs if they win at Nottingham Forest on Saturday and Reading drop points at home to Burnley.

The Seagulls would almost certainly make it with a draw should Reading lose.

Blackburn are not quite out of it but host Wigan needing to make up three points and seven goals on their rivals.

Meanwhile Charlton are safe after a 3-1 win at home to Watford tonight.

The only thing we need to do is concentrate on winning the game against Forest. If others do us a favour then we are lucky and have another crack at the playoffs. If not we need to start acting quickly securing the players we need in the Championship next season.

Why should Burnley do us a favour.

We are hardly welcoming to their patriots who come hear to celebrate St Georges day.

Only surprise with Wigan was that they didn't score more than 1 against Brum who have been leaking goals like no one else lately. I look forward to the Forest game with excitement but in honesty I think that Reading will put up a good fight against Burnley and get at least a point. I don't think Burnley will roll over as such because Dyche doesn't seem to have that kind of mentality and it shows in his team.

Forest have little to play for but the honour of winning their final game of the season in front of home fans and I reckon they will want to make up for what happened on their trip to the seaside last week. And that may be just enough to keep BHA out of the final six. On the other hand, our lot may wish to exonerate themselves for the loss suffered at the Amex. So all four teams have something to play for and nobody is going to have an easy last game! Just my theory of course.

Our game is academic. As I said before the Burnley players main focus will be on not getting injured, not getting sent off and where they are going on their holidays. Look how we performed as soon as we won the Div 1 championship. I think we lost every game.

Odd comment in article 'The Seagulls would almost certainly make it with a draw should Reading lose'. No almost certainly about it....they lose we draw and we have a better goal difference and same points. I don't want to rely on this however! Simple fact is that we need a better result than Reading and if they manage to beat Burnley we move on to next year and hope for better luck on the injury front. OG has settled in really well and may yet deliver us a playoff spot.

Don't forget the Sean Dyche factor.
The guy was unlucky to lose his job at Watford and he has worked wonders at Burnley. He is a winner and his team displays that mentality. They call him the Ginger Mourinho up there. Burnley won't want to depart the Championship on a defeat and will go out to win.

We are still in the mix and Reading have IMO the harder game but in all honesty we should not be in this dog fight for 6th place we should have been at least 6 if not 9 points better off but we did not take the chances against teams like Huddersfield 1-1 A
Barnsley 0-0 A
and of course Reading 1-1 at Home
If we don't make it to the play off's I hope that there will be some large cash flow over the summer for maybe an offer to MU for Jesse Lingard if he wants really what would be guaranteed playing time with us rather than a maybe on the bench at MU.
Think we can win on Saturday but not to take anything away from Reading they are a good side and with Burnley already up will they give Reading a hard game?

When Gaal takes over MU his task will be to put United back on top of the pile, and for that reasn I don't think he will look to Lingard to help get the job done. United have the resources to buy proven talent, proven at the highest level, and that is what I think they will do. Could Lingard make the bench, possibly for one ot two matches, but I think it more likely that Gaal will want his bench to be as good as the eleven he sends out each week, at least for his first year in charge.
Our best chance regarding Lingard is to hope that United don't want to sell him, if that happens another prem club might pick him up, but are happy to loan him out for a year, then we are in with a fighting chance of seeing him wear the stripes again.

I'm sure Sean Dyche will want the same from his squad as they have given all season, and to be fair to al the other teams in the league.
We have to just make sure of a win, preferably by a two goal margin, as I can't see Burnley conceding two, if any, on Saturday.

You're right of course that we should have taken our chances in those games. But I'm sure Reading & Blackburn can also point to similar matches where they slipped up. We also got a bit lucky playing Leicester a couple of days after they got promoted.

I think we'd have probably settled for being in this position a few weeks ago when we were in a bad run.

Burnley put on a good show in beating Ipswich last week when they had nothing to play for. Most of their team are playing for their places in the Premier League next season. I think they'll put on a good show.

Burnley will beat Reading, I think 2-0. There is no way Sean Dyche will allow his players to ease off the pedal, the man is a winner and will go onto bigger and better things (no disrespect to Burnley). So its down to our players to make sure they do the business, and although I think a draw will be enough I do fancy us to beat Forest. And if all goes to plan its the play offs next! I know we will be the outsiders of 4 but we know from previous years that anyone of the 4 can win that particular lottery

We have to just make sure of a win, preferably by a two goal margin, as I can't see Burnley conceding two, if any, on Saturday.
UTA (and The Clarets)
Dyche is a very good and honest manager. He won't let his players take their feet off the pedal as he wants that 95(?) points.

Very poorly treated by Watford so it's lovely he gets promoted and they languish in mid-table.

Our game is academic. As I said before the Burnley players main focus will be on not getting injured, not getting sent off and where they are going on their holidays. Look how we performed as soon as we won the Div 1 championship. I think we lost every game.
