Credit where credit is due, as Parky and the boys have managed to pick up four points out of six, and kept two clean sheets. It would be ironic, that having discovered some mid-table form, that our early season proclivities prove to be a bridge too far from a recovery perspective. Other results on Saturday, didn't help us either, and we really need to keep Southampton, Nottingham Forest, Norwich, Plymouth Argyle, and Barnsley in close proximity. I am not convinced that Watford, Blackpool, and Doncaster Rovers are safe either.
On to Swansea then, and whereas we needed three points against Barnsley, I would happily settle for one against Swansea. How long ago, does that sunny opening day of the season, and a 2-0 victory seem now? Our away form is still the worst in the division, but we now rank 21st for our last eight games, and that keeps the hope alive.
