It's got confortable Fleetwood win with us at 0-0 with 10 to go written all over it.

For all those not able to attend, it looks like Sky Sports have got something in the guide for EFL at 11.30am so fingers crossed it could be shown live.

Could they do a 'red button' thing and have both ours and Fleetwood on?

I really wouldn't want that. This is about us, all about us. We have the whip hand and we will rise to this occasion....Good luck to Fleetwood getting in the play offs, they showed real fight yesterday, but next Sunday isn't about Fleetwood, it's about us... :oyea: .

Just about everyone other than Bolton fans will be hoping we slip up and let Fleetwood go up.

Is the meet-up after the game inside or outside?

I've really enjoyed this season; it's been the best for a long while and will probably be a high water mark for the forseeable too.

And for that reason alone we're going to win. And win 2-0. And then go up. And then I'm going to party like it's 1989.

I'm so torn. Part of me thinks the win yesterday did us the power of good.

Other part thinks this game is exactly the situation this group of players doesn't thrive in. Need to force the situation be on top. Get a goal or two and not let Peterbrough breathe. But that just isn't our game. I don't fancy sitting back and soaking up against them. At all.

Also a nagging doubt that if we were going up Fleetwood wouldn't have nabbed that late winner yesterday. Just feels like there is a story there written all over this.

We have to be the big ugly mean team we were under Sam. Like when we relegated the media Darlings West Ham. Fast start and no let up. No mercy. If we are not ahead and Fleetwood bang some goals in I fear the pressure from a large and expectant home crowd will once again prove too much.

^^ I'm surprised you're not now brimming with confidence. No, really.

What will be, will be. It's still in our hands. Fleetwood would still swap places with us, two teams dropped out of the equation for automatic promotion yesterday, further reducing the problem. Yes it only takes one team to overtake us, but we're in a much better place than at 14:59 yesterday.

1. We aren't playing Fleetwood, are we, amigo? . If they score ten and we win one-nil, it won't change anything. Here we are with one game to go, two points to the good and even a draw will see us promoted regardless of what the "fishy folk" do. We've had a good season, are second in our league and have a great defensive record. Our two central defenders are in "Team of the Year" and have scored, what? fifteen goals between them and who's going to hand us anything on a plate and why should they? What we have we've earned, but to all the other teams in this league we're no better than them.

p.s, if by some strange phenomenon Fleetwood should create a miracle and overtake us, I fully intend seeking you out and giving you a whack with a very large wet kipper. Be warned.... :|

This. Much as I'd love us to race into an early two goal lead a'la Middlesbrough, it's just not the Bolton way is it? It's going to be bloody horrible!

Well we were the in form team on a run while others had stuttered before Dougie decided to be a smart arse and spoil it.
We're the stutterers this time so it'll be reet.
Flawless logic.

Fleetwood's fate is in our hands. I'm happy not to be one of the coastal dwellers on this occasion, kippers or no kippers. Would you lads and lassies really like to be relying on the team above to lose ... or else ... the dreadful play-off roundabout? I'll be happy with a clean sheet and no goals (once it's over). :)

Clearly they'd swap positions, but pressure-wise it's all on us. They'd go into the playoffs on a massive high, whereas for us just being in them would represent a massive failure. Wouldn't be writing us off though, even if the worst happens saturday.
