What do points make?

With a sigh of relief, I note the 1-1 scoreline of the Baggies-Brummies match which leaves Wolves still happily in 5th and only 5 pts behind automatic promition but the remaining games are going to be tough ones.

Derby are top and we don't play them again but worrying about winning the division ahead of them is a trifle premature.

Birmingham are second but with a game in hand. Wolves host them on 21st April. Their recent away form is pitiful - losing to Norwich and Hull before their last-gasp goal today gave them a point.

Sunderland are 3rd are being reborn under their new manager and Wolves travel up there on April 7th. They are unbeaten in the league in 2007 so I expect us to lose badly and them to eventually get automatic promotion.

Preston are 4th and performing inconsistently so hopefully will start to falter over the next few weeks.

WBA are 6th and have on paper a pretty easy run-in to the end of the season. They face no opposition above 9th although the matches against relegation-battlers may be tough.

Cardiff, early runners for promotion, have fallen to 7th. Wolves conceded 6 goals in the two meetings this season which is surprising considering our season average is only one a match. Cardiff play Sunderland next which should keep the Taffs outside the playoffs for a while longer.

Southampton are 4 points short of the the playoffs in 8th place but I can't see them giving up yet. They visit Molineux at the end of March but hopefully they will leave with nothing.

March 31st - Southampton (Home) - 8th place chasing playoffs
April 7th - Sunderland (Away) - 3rd place chasing automatic promotion
April 9th - Hull City (Home) - 19th place fighting relegation
April 14th - Crystal Palace (Away) - 11th place and season over already
April 21st - Birmingham Home) - 2nd place chasing automatic promotion
April 28th - QPR (Home) - 21st place fighting relegation
May 6th - Leicester (Away) - 17th place and season over already
