Spam goes to Cardiff and wins 0-2 to take a huge step towards a return. Cardiff either chokes away automatic promotion or flames out in the playoffs seemingly every year.
Bolton is on the ropes and now will have to get at least 4 points from the last 2 matches to escape. Those two quick goals by Spuds to turn a 1-1 match (and an invaluable point) into an eventual 4-1 loss has left the Wanderers with only one way to stay up, and that is finish w/a minumum of 38 points and get help. Their pathetic GD means they have to finish ahead of someone.
Villa-37 pts, -14 GD; H Spurs, A Norwich; If Spurs beat them coupled w/QPR & Bolton wins, and it's squeaky bum time at Norwich.
Wigan-37 pts, -22 GD; A Blackburn, H Wolves; Wouldn't be surprised to see them finish w/43 pts.
Qpr-34 pts, -23 GD; H Stoke, A Man Citeh; They better beat Stoke and hope WBA beat Bolton, because the final game is brutal.
Bolton-34 pts, -31 GD; H WBA, A Stoke; A win on Sun. gives them a real lifeline.
Blackburn-31 pts, -28 GD; H Wigan, A Chelski; Toast)
