We're in the play-offs...

A small consolation for Reading defeating Brighton is that we've sneaked almost unnoticed into the play-offs. Brighton in seventh place are now 13 points behind us with four games left. Automatic promotion looks impossible which is all very disappointing, but perhaps we should remember that under Pardew we came fourth and then sixth, and this season look likely to finish third having made the play-offs with four games to go. The big problem has been Reading sneaking up like the bloody Terminator and winning 18 out of 24 games, while our lack of a goalscorer has meant we've drawn home games we should have won. And now it's lottery time...

Southampton to play Reading on Friday the 13th...
Looking at Reading and our fixtures, this could still go to the wire. Failing that, will Cardiff knock us out of the play-offs and if so, do we buy up the dreggs of Southampton's team?

Another positive is that this way we might yet get to make our debut at the new Wembley this season...(insert book plug for "Wembley: Stadium of Legends" by Tomsett and Brand, 2007, here).

Back to Friday 13th what result should we be hoping for at tonight's Soton v Reading match?
