SATURDAY .......

Fairly quiet for a Saturday, at least by my normal standards and I have come up with "just" three selections. At the moment I intend to post at least one of these on the blog a little later, so please check back.

Still plenty to play for , but it is hard to see too much being resolved in the EPL, even with City hosting Villa and Spurs at home to Bolton, the battle for 4th spot seems certain to go down to the wire.

In the fourth tier, the three automatic spots have been decided, but amazingly we still have nine clubs in contention for all four post season spots and at least two of those still seem likely to be up for grabs come 17.00.

It is in Division 1 where the picture might be a little clearer by that time. Leeds United fans will be hoping that results at Prenton Park and The Valley will leave them celebrating a return to the Championship. They can certainly expect every help from Tranmere, who host Millwall and are desperate for the points to help their survival bid. Wycombe make the short but not easy journey to East London , with their safety hanging by a very thin thread. However, they can expect no favours from Orient, who have relegation concerns of their own. Hard to see this all being decided today, but there will be plenty of drama ,heartbreak for some and unbridled joy for others in the next six hours.

Brentford are looking to make it twelve games unbeaten and end any lingering hopes Swindon have of clinching the automatic promotion spot. It must be obvious (!) that their chances of beating the mighty Bees is so small, that they would be better off resting players and preparing for the post season !

Back later.
