Relegation -who will join us

Relegation -who will join us

Well as we sealed our place in league two who will join us....
Yeovil picked up the three points they needed on saturday, I can't see them getting much joy from Huddersfield (a) or Colchester(h).They may well finish with 52 points
Of the two teams on 51 points Tranmere Rovers have the worst current form. Next saturdays crunch game at MK Dons has grown in importance after Rovers 3-0 lose at home to Bristol. Defeat would mean MK Dons would go above them. Last day victory at home to Doncaster would still keep them up. The other team Rotherham need to get something from the game away to Colchester or they face a nervous last day game against MK Dons at Millmoor.
MK Dons having a good run of form would fancy adding to there 49 points from games against Tranmere (win) and Rotherham (draw). Hartlepool may well come away empty handed from Brentford next saturday but I fancy them to beat Port Vale at home on the last day. Swindon however look doomed I can't see them getting past the in form Bristol City in next saturdays derby whilst Huddersfield may prove too strong on the last day.
If this pans out like this it would end up as....
Tranmere 54 points
MK Dons 53 points
Yeovil 52 points
Rotherham 51 points
Hartlepool51 points
Swindon 46 points
Walsall 44 points

However if Rotherham win the last day game against MK Dons instead of drawing as I predict, Mk Dons would go down on goal difference....thats how tight it is and I wouldn't put any of my money on a final out come
