    So as things stand we are only 6 points from second place and 9 points from top. [Now 2 points from the play-offs].

    With 12 games to go then Automatic Promotion is still definitely possible but we need to keep winning. Our next two games are against Bournemouth and Watford. If we can win both these "six-pointers" then we would be handily placed indeed.

    We won't finish top two, but the fact we are anywhere near warrants Kenny, the staff and the players great credit. COYW!

    It's amazing how quickly it can turn around. If we can win the next 2 against Bournemouth and Watford, that would put us in a great position.

    We would have to win 10 games to get into it. It's not going to happen imo.

    Just goes to show after the November blip how things turn around quickly. Massive games coming up now! I believe we can do it!

    Still a huge ask but what a turnaround from KJ and the boys since November.

    I'd still snatch your hand off for a play-off place now but momentum is a beautiful thing to have.

    Momentum, the Force, call it what you like, it is currently with us. Confidence will be sky high. Win the next two and anything could happen, B'mouth are on downer and again only managed a draw today. A win on Tuesday against them (would be sweet revenge after the ref robbed us at Molineux) and I think we will fancy our chances against Watford at home. And once we break into the top 6, I repeat, it really is all up for grabs. :D

    Whatever happened to our clueless manager who was going to struggle to avoid relegation? Don't think top 2 is realistic, but then 2 weeks ago I have almost given up on the play-offs.

    We have two tough games against rivals next week whereas derby and norwich have two easy games and midd,bournemouth ,ipswich,wat and brentford have one easy and one tough.

    But of course anyone can beat anyone -its the chump stupid.

    I still think we will get into the play offs and win. Being saying this before the season started and i'm still sure of it.

    Lot of football to be played, in the most unpredictable league there is; impossible to call what will happen at this point!

    Can I just clarify that this is the negative, defensive, poor substitute making, indecisive, tinkerman discussed on other threads...

    It's going to be tough but those above us have it all to lose. Within touching distance of Bournemouth now and that is an achievement. Well done to the lads!

    Automatic is possible. Wouldn't say realistic and I'm sure the target is still play offs but if we win the next two, maybe. Will be tough beating Bournemouth and Watford though.

    Take one match at a time, for one negative result may disturb all our expectations.

    who are you all and what have you done with the real mol mixers, Far too positive for this board. ;)
    I wouldn't quite go as far as to say it's a realistic possibility yet, but still in with a shout and definitely right in the mix for the playoffs

    Still think top two finish is too much of a stretch, but with games to play against a number of the teams above us, it is pretty much in our own hands. If we can avoid key injuries, then I think a playoff spot is achievable and will make a heck of an exciting finish.

    Yeah, along with his league one squad that just aren't good enough too make a play off push and should have been replaced in January with miriads of mediocre signings.

    People should have more faith in this team and manager that have made us fans proud from day one.

    It's simple, beat those around us in our remaining fixtures and we will deserve to go up. If we don't then we don't.

    Unbelievable turn around in form this last week or two. Great stuff from the manager and the team. Just one good addition in midfield to back up in case of injury and suspension needed, to give us a fighting chance.

    Think the club deserve some credit for giving us a real chance having looked like it was out of reach just a couple of weeks ago.
    Said it last week, the teams above us will drop points, it's up to us to keep winning and putting the pressure on

    What a fantastic job KJ and his staff and the players have done since the Solbakken and Saunders dark days. So proud to be a Wolves fan. Come on Morgan and Thelwell get a couple in this week to make reaching the play offs a reality. Powell and Wilson anyone? They would keep Dicko and Afobe on their toes and share the workload. Not a chance of top 2 with current squad.

    I almost didn't start this thread fearing I might get back a pile of negative criticism but I am gratified by so many reasoned and balanced replies.

    Anyway if we can win our next two matches then back to back promotions could well become a reality!

    The seven teams above us have been playing out of their mind in the last couple months. There is no realistic way they all keep this form through April. I'm counting on one or two teams in the top eight tumbling downwards and start to drop points. Hope it isn't Wolves...

    I think on our from from the last few games and how close the table is we can only be positive get behind the team, nothing to lose for us really, 7-9 is where most expected us to be before the season started, and we are still not out of reach of an automatic spot

    There is still a long way to go but the boys should be congratulated for finding their form again. But the true test is the next two games when we play direct rivals home and away. I do believe the right signing at this point could help tip the balance in our favour and do fear that we have such poor back up for our strikers and in the attacking midfield area.We will need to have a lot of luck on injuries/suspensions and hope the team can keep this form going for another week even though they must be feeling the pace. But if you are winning and the force is with you that can lift energy levels.I reckon we need a minimum three points from two difficult games. 4 would be a bonus, 6 would be fantastic.Still can't see us making top two but top six is a possibility. Forest just behind us are on a hot streak and they also may break into the top six battle. It will go down to the last game of the season I expect. But we still have some catching up to do and our goal difference is so much worse than any of our rivals. Keep it going KJ.

    Nowhere near good enough for top 2.

    Unfortunate but brutal reality.
