    I don’t think I’ve ever celebrated a Rotherham goal before

    Well that's us done, only 1 relegation place left now, good luck to "little old Rotherham" hope you manage to stay up.
    As for us, I don't know what to think anymore, I've known we've been shit all season, but throwing away a 2 goal lead at Luton, followed by losing to 10 man Rotherham (with half their defence out) surpasses even my expectations.
    I don't even get angry anymore, I just laugh at us.
    I honestly think we'll struggle to stay up in League 1 next season.

    It's quite common for us to win at Hillsborough and Wednesday to win in Rotherham but I can't remember ever doing the double.

    It's still going to be difficult to stay up though with so many injuries, plus losing Smith for 3 games.
    We need to appeal it, it as 6 and 2 threes from what I saw and the Wednesday player got away with kicking and elbowing Smith while he was on the ground.

    I'd have Blues and Wednesday to join Wycombe at this point. I'm actually finding it difficult to understand how someone can be worse than us but somehow Wednesday are managing it..

    Rotherham can do it, and I really do think they will survive. Far from worst side we've played.

    I know we rivals but I've never wished that sort of strife on any club. We are all footy fans and fellow sufferers of poor form at times but I know what it's like to be sweating on the existence of the only team I could support.

    Wednesday looked doomed. Will be the usual scrap to avoid the last relegation spot. Wouldn't be surprised to see the 3rd from bottom team ending up with a 50+ points tally.

    Michael Smith's red card has been overturned so he will be available for the Brentford, Luton and Coventry matches
    It never looked like a red card but I am surprised it was rescinded.

    Brilliant weekend for us. Results went our way and now we're 6 points clear (and 10 clear of second bottom).

    I'm assuming Matty James made a difference?

    He played well yesterday.

    Derby were very poor. Coventry knew how to nullify us and we don’t have the quality to mix it up. Back in the mix for the drop now I reckon.

    I'm expecting a tussle on Wednesday night for our game in hand against your lot. Lately teams have been playing to disrupt us instead of playing their normal game...Birmingham game was head tennis for long spells, for once I'd like to see a proper game of football.

    Coventry game now postponed due to more cases of Covid in the Rotherham camp.
