So likely team is? 

Mehmet

Comrie Hamilton Otoo

MOH Allan Chalmers Edwards

Todd

McCann Wighton

Then Jakubiak, Summers, the GKs and a bunch of teenagers on the bench. 

Would be surprised if this wasn't the exact 11, not ideal having literally only 2 senior outfield options on the bench.

We should have just installed one of those all weather pitches at East End. Would mean that we would avoid postponements like today. I’m sure Livingston, Kelty, Alloa, Falkirk etc won’t have games postponed because of a bit of snow.

Lol, missing that 😁 otherwise folk will think you're being serious

Bit of a gap opening up at the top of the table from third down.

However we're 4th are only 7 points behind third with a game in hand. Partick are third and we play them in two weeks.

Should we lose next week to Airdrie then at worst we'll be 5th. However we're only 6 points off 9th (Arbroath) and they have a game in hand over us.

We're one of only four teams in the league with a positive goal difference.

A mental league with a long way to go!

Main benefit of finishing 4th will be financial from prize money and an extra gate (or two?).

Would give us not a snowball’s chance in hell of getting promoted and think we’re actually more likely to end up 6th or 7th.

Would agree that we should not get relegated but that was true in 21/22 as well.

For me, coming fourth would signal to me the team and the manager have it within them to progress and get promoted. 

If we were finishing 6/7th I'd be concerned tbh.

What if it was a case of just a few points (similar to the Championship last season)? Obviously would be disappointing the lower we finish but a single result could potentially make the difference (see below).

Aye, I wouldn't be walking away thinking it's a successful season.

After a dreadful start in 16/17, much worse than this season, we actually came close to a play-off place in the end.

There is a pattern emerging in the league, but I think we are a safe bet for finishing mid table. Really can’t see us finishing any lower than 6th or 7th in all honesty. Arbroath and Morton look doomed.

So, if we finished 4th with 57 points then you’d be confident we could progress and get promoted but if we finished 6th with 55 points then you’d be concerned?

What a load of absolute nonsense 😂

Yeah I won't be crying into my pillow if we miss out on 4th by a couple of points. If we can get through this spell without Bene/Breen/Fisher/Moffat/KRH/Summers then I do I think we'll be in a pretty good position to go for a top 4 finish. Just stay well clear of 9th and anything is possible

You have to draw the line somewhere on what's considered a successful season though surely? I've posted it a few times, but in the ten seasons since the playoffs were introduced to the Championship, the previous seasons league one winners have then finished in the following position in their first season back up - 

2nd - Once

3rd - Twice

4th - Three times 

5th - Three times

10th - Once

I reckon it should be noted that the one time that the league winner didn't finish in the top five, the playoff winner (Queens Park) came third. 

So for me if we were to come 6th, I wouldn't class it as a good season. I also wouldn't be calling for the managers head if we were to come 6th, but it would be the second lowest finish of any league one winning side, that would give me a bit of concern. 

What would be key for me, is that if we do finish outside the playoffs this year, we need to finish in them next year. If that doesn't happen questions should be getting asked.
