Tigers on the brink…

So we got a well earned draw away to Birmingham. We just needed Arsenal and Liverpool to do the business against Wigan and West Ham respectively. Things were going well as we drove to Pitlochry on Sunday listening to the commentary of the Wigan game on Radio Five Live. Arsenal 2-0 up as we left the car to have look around Escape Route (cracking wee shop by the way!). Imagine my shock when going back to the car an hour later to find out Wigan had scored three times in the last ten minutes! So that’s Wigan probably safe from relegation. Last night West Ham, probably the only other team we are likely to be able to finish up above, played Liverpool and thankfully lost 3-0.

So we’re three points behind West Ham but have still got our game in hand tomorrow night at home to Aston Villa. However our goal difference is far worse than West Ham’s so we effectively need to get four points more from our four remaining games than West Ham get from their three games.

Fixtures are:

Aston Villa H
Sunderland H
Wigan A
Liverpool H

West Ham
Wigan H
Fulham A
Man City H

Wish us luck!
