Huddersfield Town manager Andy Ritchie reckons promotion via the play offs is still a possibility, before the terriers take on Swindon this evening. Yes well he would say that wouldn't he. Lets hope he is right for a change.
I doubt many fans will agree with him after two defeats on the bounce and three in the last four league games.
No doubt a few fans will critisize me for not being positive enough, that of course the terriers can make the play offs. To you I say slacken off your intake of mind bending drugs have a cup of tea, calm down and try and come back to reality and rejoin planet earth from your fantasy world
Andy Ritchie 'I said before Saturday that we needed to win nine, maybe 10 games and we still have those games to win.
'We know it is going to be a tall order, but look at Blackpool who went 10 games unbeaten at the end of last season to reach the play-offs. We can do that.
Now thats what I call, A trying to keep your job quote if ever I heard one.
Patrick Kanyuka is unlikely to play for Swindon after being taken off with a groin injury on Saturday, so youth-team player Sean Morrison is called up.
Ex terrier Jamie Vincent is also out as is Striker Barry Corr.
Michael Pook is struggling to overcome a dead leg.
Like the terriers Swindon are a workmanlike side, team performance being all important. Lee Peacock is a good goal scoring midfield player
Jon Worthington may return following his latest injury, ankle trouble.
Danny Cadamarteri is out, Robert Page is suspended and Aaron Hardy one of the forgotten men, may feature.
Anyone up for it tonight, I wonder ?
Swindon sit 14th in FL1 a point and a place above Town, losing 1-0 to Leeds on Saturday at home and have not won in their last four.
The terriers have lost their last two, beating Swindon 1-0 at the Galpharm in February.
Bookies say Evens Swindon 11/5 Draw and 11/5 The terriers. With Robert Page out I am fearful of conceeding goals, so I'll go with the draw.
Away to Orient on Saturday
