It is a shame but there you go , we had our chance. Stranger things have happened than City getting playoff promotion against all the odds this season , but I still think our best chance is to gear ourselves up for autos .If we fail today , personally I’m looking forward to an early start to building a really strong team ready for next season. And a rejuvenated pitch too. I think from memory the playoffs won’t be over until the end of May although I know we obviously won’t care if we do make it. I envy you lads who can get to the Park to watch , looks like you’ve got an exciting season ahead whatever happens today.A shame it’s not in our own hands.
Wherever the Grecians finish at 5pm it’s been a decent/good season in these strange times.
5 points either way is the difference between autos or a mediocre season.
The injuries to Randall and Williams and sufficient back up / support for Bowman for me are our two biggest contributions to not slugging it out for the automatics this season in the end.Don't think the weather conditions favour the flowing football that City like to play! It's currently 13c, and the wind has gone round completely overnight to SSW, in the process having dumped 5mm of rain on us overnight. It's not currently raining, but there's 100% light grey cloud cover, and there are some strong wind gusts from time to time. The pitch looks (superficially at any rate) to be in good condition, although there are some bare patches on the IP stand side. Think the weather now is about as good as it's going to get today.
Who knows which City side will choose to turn up. We could/should cruise past them, but in truth I don't think the current squad have the strength in depth that will be needed to get anything out of the play=offs. I still think we've been a much poorer team since the departure of Nicky Law and the injury to Joel Randall.
