But I wouldn’t say defending well nearly every week and saving a penalty is good luck.

Think if they win today then for the first time in a while we are the outsiders and least likely to go up automatically, Wigan at home was a huge chance and we blew it just like we did against Preston last season.

Been saying that ever since, but all people keep saying is "Wigan wont keep winning, Shrewsbury wont keep winning" well they bloody are. I fully expect us to be 3rd by the time we play again.

Not been the best few days: Wigan’s 91st minute winner, harry chapman, Gillingham fiasco, now Shrewsbury after scunny had dominated first half

Was always the case as soon as we blew it against Wigan and matters were no longer in our own hands.

No point bemoaning our own luck because other teams keep winning. If they finish above us, good luck to them. There's still plenty of time for something to happen but if we fail to go up automatically we only have ourselves to blame after failing to convert a 2-0 half time lead at home against our closest rivals.

Got to agree; seen it said that we’d be unlucky not to go up with a record point total but that’s just not true, you need to get more points than all but one other team, past years mean nothing.

Had we beat Wigan we wouldn’t even be too concerned with how’s Shrewsbury are doing today and they would have been under more pressure

It is fortunate though. Look how many pens teams have missed pens against them, chances to put games to bed, late winners etc. Part earning your good fortune, part exactly that - good fortune.

Agree with the second bit. I’m usually a glass half empty guy anyway but have genuinely thought play-offs for a while. And they would worry me big time!

Early 1-0, then crossbar, then penaltykick...and you manage to lose 1-2 at home, you say?

You must have played against Shrewsbury, haven't you.
