EVERY POINT WILL COUNT IN MAY
PORTSMOUTH’S draw with Accrington Stanley allowed title challengers Peterborough to move to within two points after beating Burton Albion away from home.
And Sunderland are breathing down both their necks after they trounced Southend 3-0 at the Stadium of Light, recording their fourth successive league win.
The race for promotion to the Championship looks set to go to the wire, and every point is going to count, as Kenny Jackett is well aware.
His side could have been out of sight in the first half an hour and he will know more ruthlessness will be needed to turn draws like this into wins. Given the form of other clubs, it looks probable a high points total will be needed to secure a place in the top two of League One this season.
Jackett knows he can’t afford for his side to drop points like this.
