agreed. As much as the playoffs are a lottery, there are a few teams fighting for 6th place that we have awful records against. the main one being carlisle. the playoffs are by no means a guarantee of promotion!

What are the chances of us getting Antonio on a permanent deal now that Reading are back in the big time? Is it one of those 'If we go up, we might get him' jobs? Or might we get him anyway?
