After a horrific run of form over the last few months i was really keen to ensure heads didn't drop.
The loss of Fred Onyedinma to Stoke in January really affected the system. I decided to recall Washbourne and Davenport from their loan spells at Bolton as both can play on the Right wing.
We started February with a much needed 3-0 home victory against Blackburn. Goals for Loader, Jones and Cosgrove sealed an impressive victory.
This was Followed with a less impressive 1-1 draw away at Rotherham. A 92nd minute Johnston equaliser rescued a point.
We then made the trip up the M40 to the Hawthorns and what a game for the neutral it was.
Cosgrove missed a 1st minute Penalty which set the tone for the whole game. We then fell behind in the 3rd minute but managed to drag ourselves back level with a Johnston equaliser.
In the second half both teams cancelled each other out until the last 10 minutes of the game. Conceding a 86th minute goal from a corner looked to have condemned us to an undeserved defeat but Verhelst saved the day in the 93rd minute with his first goal for the club.
This last minute equaliser seemed to galvanise the team and we go on a solid run winning our next three games. 3-1 at home to Preston, 3-2 at home to Fulham with another stoppage time goal, this time from Washbourne and a 2-0 win away at Gillingham.
The Gillingham game was especially pleasing as both goals came from the youngsters who returned to the club from their loan spells. This was Washbourne's second goal in two games and Davenports first goal for the club.
March started with a home game against Southampton. As a newly relegated side they are easily the best team in the league. We were on course for an improbable win after goals from Cosgrove and Loader. However a 93rd minute Curtis Jones equaliser robbed us of all three points.
A 2-1 win at home to Bristol Rovers followed. This time we were the ones to score late as Max Power scored in the 91st minute. This result was made even sweeter by the fact we were down to 10 men in the second half.
We were on the road again as we made the long trip north to South Yorkshire to face Sheffield Wednesday. We suffered or first defeat since January as Wednesday win 1-0. A rare off day for the attack too as the failed to score for the firs time in 8 Games.
We quickly put that result behind us and the forwards found their shooting boots as we destroyed Birmingham 4-0 at Adams Park.
February and March were very fruitful months as we picked up 21 points from the 10 games.
This run of fine form has left us with 65 Points from 40 games and moved us up to 7th place in the League.
We have 6 games left of the season and against all the odds we are with an outside chance of making the playoffs.
A huge April for the club coming up.
Hope to see you there.
