    Off we go to Deepdale Saturday at the same Bat time, same Bat channel as everyone else for a chance to earn our 19th win and 68th point of the season. PNE are decent. They lie 8th, with 57 points and have lost the same number of games we have, seven. But we've got a solid lead on them in goal difference, +24 to +10, and we're en fuego. At this point, it really doesn't matter who the opposition is. If we are healthy and continue, or improve upon, our recent performances, we should leave with 3 more points. We've been taking care of business against the teams we should beat, so no reason to think we can't keep it going. Streaks are funny things, but we're on a great one, and I just want to enjoy it.

    I think we may wind up owing Cauley a group letter at this point.

    I was tracking it on BBC website, and there's long gaps between comments there. When we went up 1-2 I couldn't believe it. Confession time: I woke up this morning [hmm sounds like a blues song] convinced that the streak would end today. But, as I said on our page on Facebook: "Mitro, you beauty!"

    Official highlights from PNE:


    I was on the road yesterday desperately trying to get updates when the Metro was above ground. When the update came in with the winning score the people getting lunch in District Taco probably thought I had a small seizure.

    Had a chance to watch the replay and Mitrovic was totally gassed in the last 20 minutes of the match. He was really struggling to make runs. Which probably explains why he decided to lay down and take a happy nap after his second goal (he stayed down like this for about 10 seconds):

    For most of the match I thought we should be happy to draw considering how exhausted everyone looked; Mitro included. Not sure where the extra 10% of effort came from, but man alive am I grateful for it.

    With Cardiff winning, a draw would've essentially ended any hopes of snatching an automatic promotion spot. We're still alive!
