LIONS ARE BEING BACKED INTO A CORNER
IT SEEMS increasingly unlikely that Millwall versus Watford will be a Championship fixture in 2015-2016.
With five and four games left respectively, both sides’ futures remain up for grabs, but the Lions have one foot in a different division.
A first win in ten on Good Friday renewed their survival hopes undertaker interim manager Neil Harris following two draws, but what was an uphill struggle now borders on the vertical.
Although the gap to safety is still seven points, with one fewer fixture it is a much harder task. Watford dispatched weaker opposition, much as they have done all season – no side has dropped fewer points against the bottom half.
This bodes well for a run-in in which ninthplaced Nottingham Forest pose their greatest challenge. Norwich’s late winner kept the Hornets out of the automatic promotion positions, but they did gain a potentially-crucial one goal boost to their goal difference versus the Canaries.
