League 2 Relegation fight


Recommended Posts

Thing should be a lot clearer for them after Colchester's next 3 games.... Home to Barrow, away at Oldham and home to Walsall. If they are not 'clear' of Southend by then,  their next game is the  tasty little matter of Colchester v Southend. Of course, there are other teams down there (where we were!} that still need points.... fortunately we aren't one of them now.

Big derby too so what a game that could be if it’s close still.

Southend and Grimsby look like they are down.

Difficult to see either side gaining the 6 and 8 points respectively on Colchester in their 6 and 7 remaining games.


One win for Colchester in their 6 games and it requires either side to hit playoff form in their remaining fixtures.

Southend playing Colchester is the caveat but looks 2 of those 3, Grimsby run in looks like curtains for them but Southend have a modest looking run in.

Running into Vale on a 9 win streak isn’t going to help them, that’s for sure.

I can see Southend beating Colchester. Still got a chance. If a few things had been different over the last few weeks they’d already be looking at overtaking!

Oddly Grimsby are on an 8 game unbeaten run and Southend lost 1 in 6... problem is of those 13 games from 14 between them they didn’t lose they’ve still only managed to win 2 with 11 draws which is pretty bonkers.

Only really us and Barrow have been pulling regular wins out in recent weeks to push out of the picture and of course Walsall have been drawing most weeks as have Colchester recently.

Southend host Crawley who have seemingly caved in at the weekend which is winnable, Grimsby to Bradford which is a tough ask. Colchester go to Oldham so could be pivotal, Southend have to win that, a Colchester win at Oldham who are terrible at home and a Southend loss and you’d have to say that’s probably the end of it.

All I care about is that we're now definitely out of it. We only need 5 points to be certain and that's presuming that both Southend and Grimsby win all of their games

More chance of the playoffs than being relegated. We are closer to the PLs than a relegation zone.

Well I don't know about the rest of you but I feel a lot better now I had convinced myself we were going down and couldn't see a way out. Plus the wife says she doesn't need to kick my miserable rse out. For another season atleast.

Need to rely on our run continuing and 5 or 6 teams above having terrible runs, but a giant step over  the last 5 games. Thankful to be looking up than over our shoulders.

There are rumours of a league 2 club going bust which would help 1 of the bottom 2

Reading between the lines It could be Colchester United which would explain them hiring in house and getting rid of players to promote youngsters.

Allegedly a club with £30 million debt and Price of Football had their total losses of £31 million which is crazy money at this level.
