Roy Keane said it to the press. I said it in a text to a disconsolate Pete Sixsmith on his way home from Colchester. And not even today’s awful result from Molineux – Birmingham grabbing top spot back after coming from behind and surviving an injury time penalty to win 3-2 – changes it.
Whether we go up in one of the two automatic promotion places is still in the hands of the huddle to my left.
If we beat Burnley at the Stadium of Light on Friday night, and Luton away on the last day of the season, we are up. Simple as that.
Those are six points we must make ours, never mind results elsewhere, never mind pinning hopes on the likes of Palace, Sheff Wed to do the job for us.
Keano has done an exceptional job in hauling us from near the bottom to the brink of promotion and even the championship. We just need him now to motivate and inspire the squad to make one last determined effort to win us the prize their combined achievements merit.
Get behind the Lads on Friday and again at Luton. Do that usual trick of sucking the ball into the net at one end and blowing it out of harm’s way at the other.
