The run in post easter update

Remaing Fixtures
MK DONS 46points
Hartlepool won 2-1
Chesterfield away
Tranmere home
Rotherham away
Have given themselves a great chance, Scot Taylors last minute winner sets them up for the final games I can see them picking up a point at Chesterfield and turning over Tranmere. That leaves them going into the last game with Rotherham on 50 points, if Rotherham are safe then they may well get the win to stay up, a suprising 53 points and league one football

SWINDON 46points
Scunthorpe won 2-1
Brentford home
Bristol City away
Huddersfield home
Ricky Shakes hopes to have made sure they are in the end of season shake up, but I can't see them getting enough points from the final games....49 points relegataion

WALSALL 44points
Doncaster lost 1-0
Huddersfield home
Gillingham away
Barnsley home
Bottom of the league and to get out the hole they are in would be really one of the great escapes, who knows relegation is odds on

HARTLEPOOL 45points
MK Dons lost 2-1
N Forest home
Brentford away
Port Vale home
Will need to upset the promotion push of Forest or Brentford to stand a chance 3points on the last day will not be enough, 48 points and relegation

ROTHERHAM UNITED 50 points
Swansea won 2-0
Scunthorpe home
Colchester away
MK Dons home
I would have lost money on the Swansea result but fare play they will beat Scunthorpe to stay up, Lose to Colchester and maybe witness to the MK Dons Great escape....53pts min

YEOVIL 49points
N Forest lost 2-1
Gillingham home
Huddersfield away
Colchester home
Showing plenty of fight but will be struggling to win any of there last three, may well be looking tobeat Colchester in the last game to stay up

BLACKPOOL 51points
Brentford 1-1
Barnsley home
Scunthorpe away
Gillingham home.
A crawl over finish line should see them safe, The fact that Gillingham and Scunthorpe have nothing to play for should prevent them looking over there shoulders on the last day, lose against Barnsley and Scunthorpe and there might be some nervous ears to radios against Gillingham....54pts min

TRANMERE 51points
Colchester lost 1-0
Bristol City home
MK Dons away
Doncaster home
A poor run of form has brought pressure onto manager Brian Little. They find themselves in a situation very much like Blackpool they should stay up. However confidence is low Bristol City and MK Dons are on the best form of there seasons, so to slip up in these two games might make the Doncaster game, mathematically nervous but they should win against a team that has nothing to play for.....54pts min

so my four for League two are Walsall regretably along with Hartlepool and Swindon, with the last place going down to a last day shoot out with Yeovil,Tranmere and Blackpool joining MK Dons on a mathematical chance of relegation, with Yeovil possible losing out.

However the only thing that is certain is that nothing is certain there will be plenty of twists and turns between now and the final kick of the season.
