Play-offs, will we make them?

15 posts in this topic

I believe that when GM was appointed one of his criteria for success was to make the top eight play-offs, which didn't seem too onerous at the time given the optimism around our recruitment. We started off well but then had a few hiccups along the way but still looked good odds to make the top eight for most of the time. Recently, however, a couple of clubs have started to make significant inroads, notably Doncaster and Workington, and our chances on making these play-offs are now looking less likely.

 

Will we get there or will we be pipped at the post?

It would be nice to make the play-offs, but tbh, not being relegated will be wonderful.

As long as we stay in this league thats the main thing. The playoffs would be a bonus. Next season the playoffs should be more attainable.

Like most I thought the Rams good enough to make the play offs, but I have to reconsider and fancy the cumbrians along with Donny to push you into 9th or 10th. We should scrape into the first game of the play offs when once again our season will be probably finish and then we can all look forward to 2014 full of optamism :focus:

Swinton beat Fev yesterday. Funny results do occur at the end of the season, for whatever reason so you never can tell.

 

Personally i would be really pleased if we were to make the play-offs, no matter what chance we have of succeeding. After all  this year we have been celebrating just such an upset, albeit 40 years ago.

 

We need to (should) beat Hunslet and the Donny match will be quite crucial. We can worry about the rest as they come.

Doncaster have a fairly tough run in as well, so think it is between us and them with the fixture between us being even more important.

So it will close and think we could still make it. But as long as we avoid relegation which looks increasingly likely I will be happy.

GMs first season as a head coach, a new squad, long term injuries to Buchanan, Wirght, Brown , Spicer and Ben Jones and the loss of Spaven, it could have been a lot worse.

Although I got my top six prediction wrong (sadly), I think we should hold our top eight place (hopefully anyway)

Totally agree BSJ The key to our final position are Hunslet & Doncaster at home. These are the two games to secure our place in the Championship, unexpected wins or BP elsewhere might just see us in the playoffs

On balance the answer to my original post is looking more and more like "no". Other teams around us are getting good results whilst we seem to be a poorly struggling side at present - injuries take their toll but all teams suffer from these in our sport.

 

Also, just to brighten things up a little, my primitive approach to maths tells me that we still aren't safe from the drop. Can anyone tell me different?

York have 4 games to play with a possible 12 points Hunslet have 3 games. If its bottom 2 down then 2 bonus points from our last three should secure us our place irrespective of how others go elsewhere, or one BP provided we have a better points difference, come the death.

Squeaky bum time?!

Likewise correct me if I'm wrong.

So still not safe then?

 

BP's haven't been our strong point this season, have they?

It maybe a close game at half time but I feel we will fall apart again in the second half. Plus I feel another poor crowd for Sunday
