Some good results in there for us. Teams at the top taking points off of each other helps our cause and now we are getting closer to the top pack.

Agreed Doody now we have a bogey team of sorts in Tranmere. They seem to be turning their season round now as well judging by their last couple of games. Play the same against them and hopefully we will bag three more points.

Good result for us but Huddersfield losing at home was a big surprise. Swindon also lost when they would have been thinking the points were theirs.
