Can stay up on 43 points, makes that 51 of ours even more galling... 

No they can't. They play Sheff W so need at least a draw to make it 44 points. If they lose, Sheff W go above them on goal difference.

Mick is in a lot of ways the total opposite to Mowbray. Keeps things simple, plays everybody in their best positions, sticks to tried-and-tested formations and makes his teams hard to beat - building

Can't see Rotherham winning at Cardiff.

Is that the same Cardiff that has won just one of their last 6 home games and have nothing to play for?

The same Cardiff that has only lost 3 in 21 under McCarthy and are 8th. 

Stranger things have happened and final day can be crazy time but I just don't think it will happen for Rotherham. I hope it does though.

If Derby get the draw (44 points) and Rotherham win (44 points), Rotherham will go above them on goal difference.

In the words of Kevin Keegan, I would love it; just love it.

I was taking generally, someone can stay up on 43.

Sheffield Wednesday

Safe = Beat Derby AND Rotherham don't beat Cardiff.

Rotherham United

Safe = Beat Cardiff AND Derby don't beat Sheffield Wednesday.

Derby County

Safe = Beat Sheffield Wednesday.
Safe = Draw against Sheffield Wednesday AND Rotherham don't beat Cardiff.

Wycombe Wanderers

Safe = Beat Middlesbrough AND Sheffield Wednesday beat Derby AND Rotherham don't beat Cardiff AND make up a 12 goal difference on Sheffield Wednesday.

=================================================

It's probably safe to discount Wycombe, but Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham have no option but to win their games. They know what they have to do. Derby is a bit more complicated. Will they go all out to beat Sheffield Wednesday and risk reward against an open game? Or will they play it safe and keep one ear to the Rotherham game?

Derby are surely favourites to stay up, but they've lost all of their last six games. They weren't that bad when they came to Ewood, but I suspect they'll be the more nervous of the bunch.

Forgot Wycombe. Added some colours.

Let's hope it all hangs in the balance until the last 10 minutes.

Can't see Rotherham winning. Shame as they have been dealt a bum deal with Covid. When TM complains about Covid challenges people should point him to Rotherham's situation and highlight that's what a Covid impacted season looks like.

Rotherham had it in their own hands and blew it. No sympathy for them. 3rd relegation in 5 seasons, something not quite right there. They finished below Wycombe ffs. Even the likes of Burton managed to stay up for one season, and Coventry managed it quite comfortably this year. 

Sheff Weds similarly threw it away. In the end Derby simply had more bottle than the teams around them.

Some appalling teams down there though. Keep in mind we went down with 51 points in the 16/17 season. Four years on and we've managed a whole 6 extra points than a season where we were managed by Owen Coyle until February.

To be fair, Wycombe did well taking it to the last game....they've seemed doomed for months.
