League Two midway point: How each club is faring according to those who know best

22 Dec Football League Betway Insider

We spoke to fanzines, podcasters and bloggers from every side in the division for a view on their season so far...

ACCRINGTON STANLEY (22nd)

How has your season gone so far?

We've disappointingly lost to a lot of teams that are much worse than us, so it could be better.

Best moment?

Beating Burnley at home in the second round of the League Cup was brilliant.

Biggest disappointment?

That we were beaten by a Plymouth side that really didn't play as well as we did was a huge disappointment.

Star performer?

There's a few, but Matty Pearson never misses a game and always performs at a high level.

Revised predicted finish?

Having finished in the play-offs last year, we've got to be aiming at the top half at the very least.

- Andy Holt (@AndyhHolt)

BARNET (9th)

How has your season gone so far?

Hovering just outside the play-offs is a nice place to be at this time of year for Barnet.

The target set by Martin Allen was play-offs, and even though he isn't at the club anymore, we still have a good chance of achieving that.

Best moment?

Shaun Batt scoring his first ever goal for the club in dramatic fashion. It was a late winner for us to beat Hartlepool at home 3-2 after being 2-0 down with 20 minutes left.

He is in his second season at the club now and was yet to score - being a striker that clearly isn't good enough - but the fans could see he was trying desperately to get that monkey off his back.

When that ball hit the back of the net the whole stadium erupted, and you could see just how much it meant to him.

Biggest disappointment?

Losing 4-1 at home to Exeter.

They were on a poor run of form and were in the relegation zone. We had been drawing too many games and saw it as the perfect opportunity to get three points.

The performance that followed was horrible to watch, especially after going 1-0 up.

Star performer?

Without a doubt John Akinde.

I dread to think of where Barnet would be without his goals. Thirty-three goals in our championship winning campaign in the conference, 23 goals last season and 16 already this season.

He has been the difference in us getting three points compared to one on so many occasions

Revised predicted finish?

At the beginning of the season our target was to be challenging for a play-off place and so far it's going to plan.

The departure of Martin Allen has left us in a bit of a lurch, though, and we don't really know where we will go from here.

We need our new manager to carry on the good work that Martin had done rather than come in and change everything

- Jonathan Blakie (@JonathanBlakie)

BLACKPOOL (8th)

How has your season gone so far?

The team has had a chance to settle, and maybe for the first time in four years we've had a core of players that have stayed together for longer than 12 months.

Off the pitch nothing has changed. Attendances have hit an all-time-low and there is no atmosphere at home games - apparently, anyway, as I and many others won't go to home games any more.

Best moment?

Off the pitch, the Oystons losing the libel court cases against fans.

On it, the away day at Leyton Orient was a highlight. Both home and away fans were protesting against the running of their clubs.

Biggest disappointment?

The fact that the Oystons are still here and haven't sold the club.

Star performer?

The Blackpool Supporters Association continues its good work, bringing more attention to the plight of the club.

In terms of players, though, Kyle Vassell has done better than expected, with nine goals so far. Blackpool are his 15th club at the age of 24, so I wasn't expecting much.

Revised predicted finish?

Mid-table. Investment in the team at the start of next year could see us in the play-offs but I can't see that happening. In the summer I thought we would be bottom two. 

- John Campbell (Blackpool FC blog)

CAMBRIDGE UNITED (7th)

How has your season gone so far?

After a disastrous start, which saw United bottom of the table, the board commendably did not press the panic button.

Shaun Derry has rebuilt well, strengthening the defence with both Brad Halliday and a rejuvenated Mark Roberts

He has also switched to a 4-4-1-1 formation, which brings the best out of Luke Berry in the No.10 role and powerful line-leader Uche Ikpeazu.      

Best moment?

Our 4-0 FA Cup thrashing of Coventry City was pretty special, all four goals scored by Berry, a popular local boy.

Biggest disappointment?

Last season’s top scorer, Barry Corr, remains sidelined by injury since January and his fellow strikers - Ben Williamson, Joe Pigott and Adam McGurk - have all failed to find the net.

Thankfully Ikpeazu and Berry have solved that problem.

Star performer?

Luke Berry has blossomed in his new attacking role in his second spell at the club, so much so that there is renewed transfer talk about him from further up the league.

Revised predicted finish?

I said sixth at the start of the season and this division is so tight that that still looks achievable.

The squad looks thin, though, and will need strengthening in January because the players listed above are irreplaceable at the moment.

- Andrew Bennett (100 Years of Coconuts)

CARLISLE UNITED (3rd)

How has your season gone so far?

The team has gelled very quickly.

We've stayed free of injury for most of the season and have been able to play a settled team most weeks, which has contributed to our superb start.

Best moment?

The 3-2 win over Hartlepool had everything. It was a proper local affair with goals, incidents and a good crowd in.

Biggest disappointment?

The well-documented demise of the EFL Trophy, a lower-league tournament ruined.

Star performer?

Jason Kennedy and Charlie Wyke get a mention, but it has to go jointly to Mike Jones and Nicky Adams.

The quiet worker and the assist machine would walk into any League Two side.

Revised predicted finish?

It has to be automatic promotion from the position we're in. We are second, seven points ahead of fourth.

There's a long way to go, but to dip from here would be a big disappointment.

- TheCumbrians.net (@TheCumbrians.net)

CHELTENHAM TOWN (23rd)

How has your season gone so far?

It has become evident that some of our squad are struggling to adapt to League Two, which is a great shame as they did so well last season.

I don’t believe we are one of the two worst teams in the division on the evidence of what we have seen so far. We have, however, been a soft touch at times, especially away from home.

Best moment?

Our performances in the cups –  bar one game in the FA Cup at Sutton – have been good.

We beat Charlton in the EFL Cup and then played well at Newcastle, before losing 2-0. 

We then won our group in the EFL Trophy, and thrashed Crewe 4-1 away in the FA Cup before the Sutton loss and were brilliant that night. It was easily the best display of the season.

Biggest disappointment?

The defeat at Sutton will go down as the low point, coming as it did after we had led 1-0 before losing deep in stoppage time.

There have been several poor displays, especially away at Yeovil, Hartlepool and Cambridge and at home to Colchester.

It has also been disappointing to see so many players who were brilliant last season fail to adapt and fail to justify Gary Johnson’s faith in them.

Star performer?

There have been two standouts – Harry Pell in midfield and Billy Waters up front.

Pell is our driving force and almost the heartbeat of the team both on and off the field with his dynamic style and effervescent personality. If only he could avoid bookings and suspensions.

Waters, meanwhile, has got to double figures for goals and without him we would be deeper in the mire

Revised predicted finish?

A lot of fans are saying that they will be happy with 22nd, but I remain confident we can climb a bit and finish somewhere between 14th and 18th.

- Mark Halliwell (@MarkHalliwell1)

COLCHESTER UNITED (10th)

How has your season gone so far?

It’s been a bit of a roller coaster start. We have changed our formation to 3-5-2 and it works a lot better.

Best moment?

I’d go for Chris Porter’s late equaliser at Crawley in September.

Biggest disappointment

Losing 2-1 to Chesterfield in the FA Cup first round.

Star performer?

Craig Slater.

Revised predicted finish?

I think we will finish in the play-offs.

- Colchester Fan TV (@ColchesterFanTV)

CRAWLEY TOWN (14th)

How has your season gone so far?

Crawley have found the league a bit more difficult than I predicted, but it has been a lot more competitive with last year's relegated sides being strong.

We've really struggled with injuries but are starting to find our feet again and picking up some good results.

Best moment?

We recently beat Grimsby 3-2 at home after not winning in nine, and the match saw the return of Jordan Roberts, who scored two.

Grimsby were flying high at the time so the win was a real boost and proved how much we'd missed Roberts. There was so much positivity afterwards.

Biggest disappointment?

The 5-0 defeat to Yeovil.

It was FA Cup weekend, but it was one of only two league games that day. It was a huge chance to push up the table without a game in hand, so to be completely torn apart in all areas was hugely disappointing.

Star performer?

Mark Connolly has been our saving grace all season with some astonishing last-ditch tackles and goal line clearances.

He will throw himself in front of any ball and we would have conceded more goals this season if Mark wasn't around. A class act and a top defender.

Revised predicted finish?

I think we'll finish mid table, somewhere between 10th-15th, which will give us a good boost ahead of next season where the play-offs will be the aim.

- Craig Bratt (@craigybratt)

CREWE ALEXANDRA (16th)

How has your season gone so far?

Disappointingly and predictably, not much has changed on the pitch at the moment. Despite some positive signs, fans are leaving most matches disenchanted.

Best moment?

I'm struggling to think of any, and I'm usually an optimist.

I'd probably say Alex Kiwomya's debut. The on-loan winger set up a goal before scoring, and gave fans reason to cheer at the start of the season.

Biggest disappointment?

It would have to be the child sex abuse scandal.

Our footballing disappointments pale into insignificance, especially given the club's proud history of developing young talent. This will no doubt be a scar that will be difficult to heal.

Star performer?

George Cooper. At the start of the season I was looking at him to step up and seize regular first team football following our relegation, and he's improved dramatically.

He's still young and has the habit of drifting in and out of games, but he also has the ability to change games at this level and has done so on numerous occasions.

Revised predicted finish?

Well, I predicted 'mid-table mediocrity' at the start of the season, and I think that's been pretty accurate so far.

A short run of form could change things, but I don't think we're good enough so I'll stick with my original prediction.

- Nicky Crompton (Vital Crewe)

DONCASTER ROVERS (1st)

How has your season gone so far?

I think we have developed a really strong squad unity.

There seems to be a really positive outlook and the whole squad looks to be passionate about the club. After relegation last season it was key to get a feeling around the club, from top to bottom.

Best moment?

The whole season has been fantastic for us so far, but the best moment has to be James Coppinger’s 500th game, at Morecambe.

Comfortable and in the driving seat with a 4-1 lead, it was an amazing celebration for a club legend.

To top it off, Copps went and scored the fifth – and what a moment. To see him being raised on the shoulders of his teammates and presented to the crowd is one of those moments that will stick with Rovers fans for years to come.

Biggest disappointment?

Luton away. On the back of that victory over Morecambe and a 2-0 home win against Newport, confidence was high.

But we came crashing back down to earth that day.

Going 1-0 up early on was a great start, but the injury and lengthy treatment of Luton man Scott Cuthbert knocked our momentum and we eventually lost 3-1.

Star performer?

There have been so many.

Coppinger stands out with every appearance, while Tommy Rowe adds confidence to the midfield. Jordan Houghton has been a brilliant addition and John Marquis is a constant threat up front.

The real star, especially over the last few weeks, has got to be Liam Mandeville, though.

Given his chance following the injury to Andy Williams, Mandeville has really stepped up, scoring seven in nine games. We have an amazing prospect on our hands.

Revised predicted finish?

Earlier in the season I predicted promotion and, judging by our position at Christmas, we are bang on track.

As long as we keep doing things the right way and keep scoring those key goals, there shouldn’t be anything in our way back to League One.

- Lewis Ward (Vikings Bloggen)

EXETER CITY (15th)

How has your season gone so far?

Since the start of the season, the mood has definitely turned more sour and mutinous.

I don't think anybody was expecting an outstanding season, but we certainly weren't expecting to have spent most of the first half of the season in the bottom two.

Best moment?

Genuinely good moments have been few and far between, though on the road we've put in some decent performances.

But even though our home win against Mansfield came in December, to have actually won at home probably means it's our best moment of the season. Which is a little depressing when you think about it.

Biggest disappointment?

Every moment our players set foot on the grass at St James Park.

Performances at home have ranged from unlucky to absolutely abject, via snoozefests.

Star performer?

Lee Holmes has been excellent every time I've seen him play this season.

Our attacking players are, paradoxically for a team near the bottom, of a pretty decent quality, but Holmes in particular stands out.

Every time Holmes receives the ball, you genuinely sense we could create something.

Revised predicted finish?

At the start of the season, I said we'd finish frustratingly outside of the play-offs, so I'll stick with that.

I still think we'll put together a run that will give everybody hope before our annual end of season collapse. We'll finish well clear of the relegation and irritatingly close to the final play-off spot.

A nondescript 10th.

- Gary Andrews (@gafootbl)

GRIMSBY TOWN (12th)

How has your season gone so far?

Paul Hurst, the manager, has gone to Shrewsbury and Marcus Bignot has replaced him.

Despite winning promotion, Hurst never really endeared himself to the fans. Bignot hasn't had the results yet but has won over the supporters already with his positivity.

Best moment?

Probably the opening day win against Morecambe, beating Plymouth 3-0 or the thrashing of Stevenage.

Omar Bogle's goals have certainly been a highlight having scored more in the first three months than he did in the whole of last season.

Biggest disappointment?

A couple of the recent performances – particularly Doncaster away – have been lacklustre and without Bogle we don't look like scoring too many goals.

Hopefully it is a blip rather than the start of anything more serious.

Star performer?

As I predicted, Bogle. He is the second-highest scorer in English football and linked with a move away in January. I'd be surprised if he's still with us on 1 February. A move to a big club beckons.

Revised predicted finish?

I said 10th and I'll stick with that.

If Bogle is sold then we'll need players to replace him, but there are far worse - and far better - teams than us, so mid-table will give us a platform on which to build.

- Paul Savage (Too Good To Do Down)

HARTLEPOOL UNITED (20th)

How has your season gone so far?

After a few seasons of struggle it wasn’t supposed to be like this. The promise and hope has disappeared and been replaced by disappointment and apathy.

Best moment?

Probably the 3-0 win at Grimsby at the start of October. A wonder goal from Nathan Thomas and a sublime double-save from 'keeper Trevor Carson capped the best performance of the season off.

Biggest disappointment?

The failure to convert promising performances and possession into wins. Pools can score goals, but they ship too many, and it’s been down to individuals making stupid mistakes more than anything.

Star performer?

Nathan Thomas. If he wasn’t currently injured and sidelined after groin surgery he would be on his way for big money next month. Quick, direct, can create goals and score them too.

Revised predicted finish?

It's impossible to guess.

Results have not matched performances in general, but a couple of hefty back-to-back defeats showed how poor they can be, and things are starting to unravel.

They should have more than enough to finish mid-table, but I’ve said that for a couple of years now…

- Nick Loughlin (@loughlinecho)

LEYTON ORIENT (19th)

How has your season gone so far?

Orient are already on their third manager this season.

The appointment of Andy Edwards, though, feels like a step in the right direction after Alberto Cavasin's ill-fated 10-game spell.

Best moment?

There haven't been many good moments so far, our first win of the season against Stevenage was arguably our best performance.

However, I’m going with our 1-0 win over Accrington, which ended our run of eight defeats at home. Hopefully we will look back on that result as a turning point in our season.

Biggest disappointment?

Our campaign in general has been a disappointment. Too many players haven't been playing to their full potential and unfortunately our captain Robbie Weir has been the epitome of that.

Off the pitch, it is also disappointing that the hierarchy still haven't learned from their past mistakes, Cavasin's appointment being a prime example.

Star performer?

Alex Cisak has been the player who has performed the best on a consistent basis.

The Australian has pulled off important saves on many occasions this season and we would've been in even more trouble without him

Revised predicted finish?

I originally predicted fifth place, but I should have known things wouldn't go smoothly at Brisbane Road. Hopefully we can avoid the instability and chaos that we have seen all too much of.

- James Mealing (Total Orient)

LUTON TOWN (5th)

How has your season gone so far?

We are going pretty much as I expected us to.

We have struggled to get results at home especially when teams come and park the bus, but away from home we're pretty good.

Best moment?

Most of the best moments have come in the cups.

The TV win over Aston Villa in the EFL Cup first round was excellent and our youngsters have been going great in the EFL Trophy, even though we keep getting fined for playing them.

Biggest disappointment?

Probably the defeat to Portsmouth.

There was an electricity around that only big nights at Kenilworth Road bring but after taking the lead we failed to rise to the occasion and lost 3-1.

Star performer?

Danny Hylton has been different class. Not just his goals, of which there have been plenty, but his work rate is unbelievable.

He tires me out watching him so what he does to opposition defences I've no idea.

Revised predicted finish?

Not really. I predicted we would finish sixth at the start of the season and I still think we'll be around there.

- Kev's Hat (@kevshatsports)

MANSFIELD TOWN (17th)

How has your season gone so far?

We have a new manager in Steve Evans who was a proven track record of achieving promotion in the Football League.

Former boss Adam Murray was revered as a player, but didn't cut it as a manager.

Best moment?

Beating Notts County, our neighbours, 3-1 with two late goals. Apart from that there has not been much to shout about until Evans was appointed.

Biggest disappointment?

Our home form under Murray. He talked the talk about exciting football, but couldn't produce it on the pitch.

Star performer?

Purely for effort, commitment and fight it would be Jamie McGuire. He's not technically gifted, but has added grit to our otherwise powder-puff midfield.

Revised predicted finish?

It all depends on who Evans can sign in January.

If the signings are as exciting as we are led to believe, I think we can finish in the play-offs. If not, I would expect around lower-mid table

- Sam Binch (Mansfield Musings)

MORECAMBE (18th)

How has your season gone so far?

The club has been taken over by a Brazilian but along with it has come a lot of uncertainty. 

On the pitch we have had the usual good start, topping the league briefly in August, followed by the standard free fall from October onwards.

Best moment?

A special moment had to be finally beating local rivals Accrington away from home for the first time in the Football League.

Biggest disappointment?

Going on a run of seven home defeats in the league has to be the worst time - not just this season, but for a long time.

Crowds have been hit with some dire performances and it will take quite a bit to get those people back.

Star performer?

The on-loan striker Cole Stockton has done very well, leaving most of us stumped as to why he doesn’t get in Tranmere’s team.

Our stand-out performer, though, has to be Michael Rose, who is running our midfield.

Revised predicted finish?

The league has been incredibly tight this season and we cannot rely on our away form to compensate for shocking home form all season.

I still think this will be the most testing season we have had and can only hope we stay above the bottom two.

- Jack Steer (@morecambejack)

NEWPORT COUNTY (24th)

How has your season gone so far?

I try to look on the bright side. Considering we finished 90th out of 92 last season, we’ve only dropped a couple of spots.

Best moment?

We outplayed and beat Carlisle at home, who had won eight straight before that, in our best display of the season

Biggest disappointment?

Being bottom of the Football League is no fun and we have been there all season so far. There’s been too many games where we just haven’t turned up, which isn’t acceptable.

The playing surface at Rodney Parade is not helping our cause either, with two games abandoned and another called off already.

Star performer?

Joe Day has been incredible in goal. We appointed a full-time goalkeeping coach in James Bittner, which looks like it has paid dividends.

I genuinely think we may struggle to hang on to him in January.

Revised predicted finish?

Graham Westley is no mug. If our good results continue then we shouldn't have any issues in finishing 22nd or high, which is all we can hope for after the disastrous start we endured under Warren Feeney.

- Keiren 'Beefy' Blake (365 Days of Sport)

NOTTS COUNTY (21st)

How has your season gone so far?

Performances even prior to our run of defeats had fans pondering why we haven't moved forward, although I believe John Sheridan deserves backing regardless of obvious flaws.

Until he establishes a team of players who are self-motivated and have a desire to win, it will always be a case of slow building.

Best moment?

I honestly cannot think of anything that has been remotely positive.

The home form has been terrible and things haven't been much better away. Even in the cups we've been poor.

Biggest disappointment?

It's between the board and certain players. I don't think the answer is all that easy because the more I think about it, the more I would say they're equal in standing.

However, Ray Trew has failed to pay a tax bill twice during this campaign - so it's perhaps unfair to blame the players solely for their performances - but we do need to see better on the pitch.

Star performer?

There's no easy answer, but I'll go for Jon Stead. he's been magic prior to his injury and his has been a major setback for Notts County.

Despite his age, he has single handedly turned woeful performances into wins for the Magpies, but sadly there are no other players who have come remotely close to matching him.

Revised predicted finish?

This depends on if we can stop the rot and turn around the recent form.

Without changes, which I am not expecting given the evidence from recent years, I think mid-table to lower half is a strong possibility. I'll pinpoint 14th.

- Pride of Nottingham (@PoN_UNCFS)

PLYMOUTH ARGYLE (2nd)

How has your season gone so far?

We’re top of the league. We’ve got a strong defence and even though the football we’ve played hasn’t always been scintillating, we’ve scored enough goals to make us deserved leaders.

Best moment?

The victory over rivals Exeter is the obvious highlight, but the satisfying comeback win at Crewe in November was a microcosm of our season.

Our ‘keeper Luke McCormick is notoriously a penalty saving-phobic, so to see him get his hands to a spot kick was something I’ve been waiting for for a long time. 

Biggest disappointment?

In terms of players, David Goodwillie came in with a good track record but has flattered to deceive so far.

Star performer?

There’s only one answer to this question: the inspirational Irishman Graham Carey. He’s one of the few technically-gifted players in this division who backs it up with a good work ethic and consistency

Revised predicted finish?

Third.

- Stan Beale (Argyle Life)

PORTSMOUTH (4th)

How has your season gone so far?

The season has been good, but not great.

Pompey fans were expecting a challenge for automatic promotion and although that may come to fruition in the second half of the season, many believe that the team's performances are too inconsistent.

Best moment?

Probably the 3-1 win at Luton last month, which proved we are capable of convincing results away from home against the better sides in the division.

Biggest disappointment?

Our home form looks like it's going to cost us a good chance of finishing in the top three.

Paul Cook's lack of a plan B, coupled with the opposition knowing how to play to get a result at Fratton Park has seen too many points dropped to sustain any momentum. 

Star performer?

Nineteen-year-old Conor Chaplin has been the star so far this season.

His goals have been important, but also have proved he is capable of playing at a higher level. For someone so young, he has plenty to offer.

Revised predicted finish?

I said Pompey would win League Two if Cook learned his lessons from last season, but he hasn't.

His team play too much predictable and pedestrian football at home yet they continue to grind results out away from Fratton Park. It's optimistic to believe that Pompey will be a League One team next season.

- Jim Bonner (Fratton Faithful)

STEVENAGE (11th)

How has your season gone so far?

Progress is being made. At the start of the season, the hope was that Darren Sarll would lead Stevenage upwards after taking over from Teddy Sheringham back in February.

He's done that, albeit after a slow start to the season

Best moment?

You'd usually find it hard to look past the 6-1 demolition of Hartlepool United. You know, one of those days where it all just seemed to click.

And yet, coming from behind at home to Luton Town and grabbing the winner in the 96th minute? Oh yes, that's very much up there...

Biggest disappointment?

Our recent run of form at the Lamex hasn't given us much to write home about – if you excuse the pun. Most, if not all, of those matches have been against those at the top of the table.

Star performer?

It's a tough one because no individuals have performed at a consistently high standard for an extended period of time.

Matt Godden, however, had started to show his goalscoring capabilities before getting injured. Kgosi Ntlhe, too, has been impressive more often than not. 

Revised predicted finish?

It was "lower mid-table" at the start of the season and now it's simply mid-table.

We are definitely moving in the right direction, however. And – if we can sort out the home form sooner rather than later – a promotion push is still worth an outside punt.

- Boro Guide (@boroguide)

WYCOMBE WANDERERS (6th)

How has your season gone so far?

We have gradually got players back, Luke O’Nien being the most important.

I would also mention Scott Kashket, who arrived as a winger but was not billed to make much of an impact. He has chipped in with 11 goals so far.

Best moment?

Winning 5-0 at Chesterfield in the FA Cup second round.

Having lost on our last four visits there, and being a division lower, hopes were not high. We blew them away on the day, though.

Biggest disappointment?

Probably the 1-0 home defeat to Barnet on the 22 October.

We’d been in good form at home, while they’d been struggling away, yet we were well beaten.

Star performer?

Luke O'Nien and Scott Kashket, as I stated above. Had they been available and picked earlier in the season, we may well have been higher than we are now.

Revised predicted finish?

I think we can stay in and around the play-offs, if we ride our luck with injuries. Automatic promotion may be too much of an ask.

- Russell Cox (The Wycombe Wanderer)

YEOVIL TOWN (13th)

How has your season gone so far?

Good. Yeovil are now a confident team with what looks to be a bright future ahead.

We went on an unprecedented eight-match unbeaten run and deservedly so. We are playing some really positive attacking football and that is what has been missing over the past few years

Best moment?

Beating Crawley 5-0 at home. It has been a long time since we dominated a match like that and the goals were as good as any Yeovil Town side have scored.

It brought a real feel-good mood on social media and it was great to see the fans so positive.

Biggest disappointment?

The FA Cup tie against Solihull Moors. We had more than enough chances to get through and took the lead in the original game and the replay, but eventually went out on penalties.

Star performer?

Tom Eaves for me. He has scored a number of goals but more than that, he gives everything on the pitch.

He must run across every blade of grass each time out and when you are playing for a club like Yeovil, that is extremely important. You can tell he is loving his football and that is a joy to see.

Revised predicted finish?

I think we will finish eighth or ninth. We may be too inconsistent to get into the play-offs, but I am sure we will finish nearer the top of the table than the bottom.
