    You had a load of injuries and would have had to play some youngsters, so it was a perfect excuse to call it off. I asked a few of your fans if they thought Warnock would have pulled a stunt like that and they said yes, and I said of course he would have.

    Can't help but feel that was a missed opportunity for Rotherham tonight, especially considering the start they made. Still can't see the bottom 3 changing between now and the end of the season

    And that win makes us basically safe! No back to back wins and now we've won three in a row. Brilliant.

    Wycombe just won't give in will they? This would be the greatest of all great escapes if they somehow manage to pull it off

    Just f*ck off Stoke. Absolute garbage for the umpteenth time this season. O'Neill will be under huge pressure this summer, he has to get it right. The standard of our football is simply not good enough and this season has been like pulling teeth.

    Well done to you lot, stayed up in style in the end really unlike us who are going out in a whimper. If we can help Derby go down via losing to Wednesday it will be something at least.

    We were genuinely appalling tonight - don’t know how you didn’t finish us off. No idea what the pen was for - I just groaned as the header looped into your keepers arms.

    We’re safe now unless Derby win all 3 games AND Rotherham make up the points - 50 points a huge relief after the desperate fair we’ve played this season. Every bit as bad as the season we stayed up on goal difference.

    He obviously saw everyone had 1-1 in the prediction game and we all needed points !

    He's not going to have long to get it right next season is he? I had a glance on your forum the other day and you can't help but feel he may have struggled to get through this season had fans been in the grounds

    Another brilliant result. Sure, it was a nothing game for Stoke but they equalised twice and it took some guts to get the result in the end.

    Thats us safe now, maybe not mathematically but thats it now. To think some of our bedwetting fans were questioning Robins.

    Time to enjoy this now and look forward to getting to some stadiums next season which I haven't visited in a good few years.

    I don’t thing Mathematics come into it now. All bar the bottom four are safe. All those games in hand for Rotherham are proving (for want of a better word) pointless..

    Red card totally changed the game.
    Even if it gets overturned today it doesn't help us now.

    You have to hand it to Middlesboro' for keeping the integrity of the league when many thought they would be on the beach.
    Colin certainly not doing us any favours.

    Also well done to Wycombe, fighting to the bitter end, it's a pity the ref made sure we weren't given the chance to do the same.

    It's definitely not over yet. Sheffield Wednesday have the best chance imo...they play Derby last day of the season so they just need to make up 1 point on Derby over the next two games & not ruin their GD.

    Credit to Wycombe, would take a miracle to stay up now but last night was a miracle with their goalie winning the pen, so maybe it could happen.

    Unfortunately think Rotherham are done for, they have 2 very tough fixtures next. However their last 3 games could all be against teams that are on the beach so you never know...

    All we need is Wednesday,Rotherham and Derby lose their remaining games and we win our last 3 and we'll stay up. :laugh:
