Nottingham Forest continued their phenomenal form tonight with a 5-0 home win against QPR.
And those 5 goals considerably improve the Forest goal difference, and they are now level with Newcastle on 52 points, and a goal difference of 24, just one short of Newcastle’s.
Newcastle need to hammer some of the lower-positioned teams on the run-in – if we can of course.
Unless Nottingham Forest start to falter, (and soon) they look to be a real threat this season, as Billy Davies has them playing some wonderful attacking football, which is just excellent to watch.
WBA could only draw at Ipswich Town, and for the umpteenth time, Roy Keane’s side were denied a win by an opposition equalizer in injury time.
WBA’s star man Chris Blunt scored late to equalize an earlier goal from Grant Leadbitter, the former Sunderland forward, but the reports suggest WBA were well worth their point tonight.
In other results Middlesbrough finally got on the winning track with a good 4-1 win at Doncaster, and Cardiff City hit Bristol City for 6 – with a 6-0 win – and that was away at Bristol.
Sheffield United continued their recent good form with a 3-0 win at home to Reading.
A win tomorrow night can see Newcastle go 3 points clear of Nottingham Forest and 8 points clear of 3rd placed WBA.
The top two teams at the end of the season gain automatic promotion to the PL, of course.
Howay The Lads!!
