Relegation watch

UPDATE with the Easter weekend games:

With an interesting set of results, and a couple of teams idle on Monday (West Ham and Sheffield United), you really do have to think the final two relegation spots will come from five teams (West Ham, Sheffield United, Charlton, Wigan and Fulham).

Charlton hauled themselves out of the bottom three over the weekend whilst Wigan picked up another couple of points.

Biggest winners? Ourselves of course - who'd have thought we'd have hit the forty point mark at Easter? Most were nervous we'd get there by the end of the season...


Although I think 38 points should be enough to ensure safety, I don't think anything will be cut and dried until the 40 point target is hit.

Below is the bottom eight with the number of games remaining (GR), current points total (PTS) and target points to hit the 40 mark (TARGET).

GR PTS TARGET
City 6 40 achieved April 9th
Boro 5 39 1
Villa 5 39 1
Fulham 5 35 5
Wigan 5 34 6
Charlton 5 32 8
Sheff Utd 6 31 9
West Ham 6 29 11
Watford 5 23 17* no longer possible
