12the Man - One More Hurrah - Can We Do It?

12the Man - One More Hurrah - Can We Do It?




We'll have another shot drinking in the 'Last Chance Saloon' once again on Saturday, this season is rapidly turning into something exciting, with big thanks to Nick Powell for keeping our chances alive.

A win against Cardiff, coupled with defeat for Blackburn and Forest would leave us 2 points off safety with two to play, how exciting would that be! We could really turn the pressure on.

Of course we are dependent on others and can only do our bit, it is time though for the fans to really get behind the club this weekend, as was seen against Barnsley games last 90 minutes and the lads will need our backing for the penultimate home game of this campaign.

We have ourselves a new talisman in the N'Zogbia mould in Powell, he gives the whole place a lift when he enters the pitch, it is quite obvious that he isn't 100% fit but a 20 minute or so cameo from Nick 'a goal' Powell has been enough to win two of the last three games and he was unlucky not to have secured us a point away at Brighton.

So let's have one more hurrah and get the DW rocking, three points and who knows.

Up the tics!

What a come back against Barnsley, Mighty Nick just could not pull it off again four days later down at Brighton though, so where does that leave us?

We are deep in trouble but there are those amongst us who still have faith.

A big game on Saturday at the DW against Cardiff, a win is needed or it will be good night Vienna, or goodbye Championship, the panel though are strangely optimistic.
